Badesi Mare is in an extraordinarily beautiful location – facing the shimmering Gulf of Asinara, where, on a clear day, you can see as far as Corsica. Set on a hilltop overlooking the river Coghinas, this fishing village-turned-resort in northwestern Sardinia is renowned for its pristine beauty, in particular its long, dune-backed beaches with their backdrop of yellow-and-emerald juniper trees.
Badesi Mare holidays are a magnet for adrenaline enthusiasts, as the resort offers superb conditions for kite and windsurfing and great surf. Some of the beaches nearby are prime big-wave territory, and the warm climate makes for a long surf season. Kayaking along the snaking, mirror-blue of the river is another thrill.
With an alluring mix of tranquility, high-octane water sports and authentic Sardinian cuisine, holidays to Badesi Mare will keep all the family happy. It’s without a doubt one of Sardinia’s most brilliant escapes.
Sunbathe and surf
Badesi Mare’s pristine beach is lapped by clear sea, and it stretches for 8 kilometres, backed by juniper trees and dunes. Plus the surf is amazing when the wind’s blowing.
Explore by boat
Take a boat trip out to the protected Nature Reserve of Asinara and you’ll have a good chance of spotting dolphins as well as many other sea creatures.
Vineyards neatly hem the hills around Badesi, and several offer the chance to taste local wines and learn about the different varieties available in the area.
