Li Cucutti beach: wild
Li Cucutti is a very long sandy beach north of Budoni, a wonderful beach for walking and admiring nature as far as the eye can see. Its beautiful dunes separate it from the few dwellings in the area, accentuating its wild nature. Very fine, almost impalpable, white sand flows into the azure sea.
Li Cuppulati beach: crystal clear
Li Cuppulati is the northern part of Li Cucutti south of Ottiolu, a succession of small coves reserved and sometimes concealed. It is the beach overlooking the sea of the small town of Agrustus, frequented by residents and tourists alike all year round to enjoy its tranquillity and admire its crystal-clear waters.
Cala Cuppetti beach: concealed
Spiaggia Cuppetti is located north of Budoni, south of Ottiolu beyond the hill of Isola Alta where there is a hidden beach which ends in the beautiful, pebbly Cala Cupetti.
This beach can be reached by following a beaten dirt path, which is generally poorly frequented at any time of the yearthus allows you to enjoy silence and relaxation even in summer.

Ottilou Beach: worthy
The small town of Porto Ottiolu has a respectable beachIt is easy to reach because it is very close to the centre and the port. Despite its proximity to the marina, its waters are really clear and limpid. Sand with all around the green of the maquis and the typical plants of Sardinia. Definitely worth visiting during a holiday in the area.
Cala dei Francesi beach: pristine
Cala dei Francesi is a pretty cove to the north of Porto Ottiolu. It is not easily reached by everyone also because it is very little known. It is a small beach hidden from most that is certainly worth a visit for the unspoilt nature surrounding it.
