2 days in Alghero!

Good Afternoon again- I'm looking for advice about what to do with 2 full days in the Alghero area, and then half a day before a ferry ride to Corsica. The ferry will be leaving from Santa Teresa di Gallura. We have rented a car and will be driving from the Olbia airport our first day. I originally planned on visiting Stintino- Pelosa Beach area on our first full day, and Cagliari the second full day, but now I feel that we could visit Stintino on the way to the ferry. Any advice???? We are looking for beautiful beaches, and great seafood. We are willing to drive 1-2 hours, with stops along the way.

Thanks again,

Forget Cagliari. Stick to the North.

La Pelosa will be heaving. Personally I would give it a miss at this time of year. Plenty of quieter and nice beaches closer to Alghero if you just want a bit of beach time.

From Alghero a daytrip to Cagliari would not be my idea of fun. It is 250 kilometers one way and googlemaps has the time at 2 hours and 45 minutes one way.

I do not know when you will be there but we drove to La Pelosa in the morning a few years ago at the end of June, took one look and drove away again (the beach was completely covered with people). You can drive to Bosa, look around the village, maybe have lunch there. On the drive to Bosa and back you will find nice beaches, some very small, some bigger.
