Discovering the Best Photography Locations in Nord Sardinia


Sardinia, with its crystal clear waters and stunning landscapes, is a photographer’s paradise. In this post, we will explore some of the best locations in Sardinia for taking breathtaking photographs.


La Pelosa Stintino

La Pelosa is one of the most famous and photographed beaches in Sardinia. It’s located in the northwestern tip of the island, near the town of Stintino. The beach is characterized by its fine white sand, turquoise water, and a small island with a tower that creates a picturesque scenery. The best time to take photos here is early in the morning or late in the afternoon, when the light is soft and the crowds are less. You can also get some amazing shots from the nearby cliffs.The location is spectacular, every person I know who has seen this beach has always been amazed, it looks like a Caribbean beach.

Le Saline Stintino.

Le Saline is another beautiful beach near Stintino, famous for its salt pans and flamingos ( only sometimes unfortunately). The contrast between the white salt crystals, , and the blue sea makes for a stunning composition. The best time to take photos here is at sunrise or sunset, when the colors are more vibrant and the reflections are more dramatic

Alghero Maria Pia

Alghero is one of the most charming and historic towns in Sardinia, with a Catalan influence and a lively atmosphere. Maria Pia is one of its best beaches, located just outside the town center. The beach is surrounded by a pine forest and has a long stretch of golden sand and clear water. The best time to take photos here is during the golden hour, when the sun casts a warm glow on the beach and the trees. .

Alghero Porticciolo

Porticciolo is a beautiful cove near Alghero in the Natural Park of Porto Conte. The small sandy beach is surrounded by rocks and a restored 16th-century Spanish tower overlooks the area.
The sea has turquoise and emerald green tones, and the nearby cliffs provide a perfect backdrop for photography.
Access is via a short trail, and there is a small free parking lot available. It’s a great spot for nature lovers and those who prefer an unspoiled landscape.

is a promontory that overlooks Alghero and offers some spectacular views of the coast and the sea. It’s also home to one of the most impressive natural attractions in Sardinia: Neptune’s Grotto, a cave system that can be reached by boat or by climbing down 656 steps carved into the cliff. The best time to take photos here is at midday, when the sun illuminates the cave and creates amazing effects on the water and the stalactites. You can also take some stunning shots from above, capturing the contrast between the white cliffs and the blue sea.

Alghero Cala Dragonara

Cala Dragonara is one of my favorite beaches in Alghero, located near Capocaccia. It’s a small cove with fine sand and crystal-clear water, surrounded by rocks and vegetation. It’s a perfect spot for snorkeling and swimming, as well as taking photos of nature and wildlife. The best time to take photos here is in
the afternoon, when there are fewer people around and you can enjoy more privacy.

Alghero Lazzaretto

Lazzaretto is another beautiful beach near Alghero, with white sand and clear water. It’s named after an old quarantine station that was built on a small island in front of it. The island adds some interest to the landscape and can be reached by swimming or by boat. The best time to take photos here is at sunset, when you can capture some amazing colors and reflections on the water.

Platamona Sassari

An enormous expanse of light-colored sand that merges into a sea with changing colors ranging from green to blue. The entire coastal strip is about 15 kilometers long with a width ranging from 10 to 30 meters. There are large sand dunes behind it, with a rich Mediterranean vegetation.

I think I’ve definitely found a gem artist in Sardinia whom i had just randomly searched up on Google for our vacation family photoshoot. Imagines Valeria capture are so soft & light, yet so very powerful that each speaks louder than words. She has a special eye in capturing our beautiful natural expressions, rather than just limited to smiles & laughters. Moreover, Valeria knows very well how to communicate with young children (my kids are 5, 3, 2), so much loved by my 3 monkeys!! She will indeed be a reason for us to revisit Sardinia again.

The art of the photographer is to tell without words and without a pen. Valeria manages to tell moments of life of those who are in front of her goal, simply grasping the details, She looks and smiles and then give emotions and memories to those who see in his shots what he could never see: herself while feeling an emotion. Very good

Valeria has an extraordinary talent in capturing details, small gestures, facial expressions, everything that makes a wedding “Your” wedding and immortalize it in wonderful shots. His photos are intimate, exciting, always original, beautiful. Very serious and professional, also recommended for those who do not like being photographed, because they will follow you on tiptoe without ever being intrusive. I find that her works convey elegance and a sensitivity that touch the heart. I with the photos of the pre-marriage and the wedding I have carpeted the house and I can not wait to do other! Thank you so much Valeria

When we did the photo shoot with Valeria we had high expectations, but we never imagined that she would be able to contain perfectly the moments so beautiful and unique, to the point of being excited every time we look at the photos. she has the talent and the sensitivity to capture moments or small gestures that many would miss, and this is what makes everything more special, because her shots are not just simple photos, they are memories that speak and that make us relive all the moments more beautiful ❤️
