Porto Pino Dune Beach in Sant’Anna Arresi

Porto Pino beach is located along the southwest coast of Sardinia in Italy.

The 4 km long beach is divided into three distinct areas: two beaches and the dunes section.

In ancient times, Porto Pino bay was a Phoenician seaport. The ruins are still visible.

Then it became a Roman commercial center.

The promontory of Porto Pino is covered by a vast spontaneous pine forest of Aleppo pine, a fairly rare formation and present in Sardinia only in this area and on the island of San Pietro.

The promontory of Porto Pino is covered by a vast spontaneous pine forest of Aleppo pine, a fairly rare formation and present in Sardinia only in this area and on the island of San Pietro. The pine is joined by the thorny oak, typical of coastal environments and also with a very restricted range on the island. The sandy strip that separates the sea from the ponds is about 70 meters wide and is occupied, in the innermost part, by a spontaneous pine forest. Often the remains of posidonia accumulate on the sand, which grow on the seabed forming large meadows and which, once dead, are washed ashore by the sea currents.
