The Girin beach recalls the white sandy beaches and the finest tropical atolls of the Pacific. Sheltered from the strong mistral wind, it features crystal clear waters of an intense turquoise color and a shallow sandy bottom. Thick Mediterranean scrub and pine trees surround the beach and perfume the air. It’s frequented mostly by families with children, who enjoy spending the day in this incredible piece of heaven.
It is located along the east coast, nearly 3 km from Carloforte, along the main road that leads to all the beaches.
As soon as you reach the dirt parking lot, continue on foot, past a refreshment stand. After a dozen meters, you will reach your destination.
There is no lifeguard rescue and is not accessible to people with reduced mobility due to a flight of stone steps leading to the beach.
