Badesi is a small, lively, sun-kissed locality facing on to the Gulf of Asinara, set on Sardinia’s northern coast, marked by jagged red rocks, caves and stretches of sandy beach. Beyond a stretch of dunes clothed in juniper and lentisk lies its beach – a long ribbon of white sand several km long, divided into various individual stretches, each with its own name: from north to south they will take your breath away - Li Junchi, Li Feruli, Li Mindi and finally Lu Polti Biancu. But its true fascination lies in the surrounding region: it is an excellent starting point for trips to nearby centres such as Castelsardo and the Costa Paradiso, passing through charming Stintino up to Santa Teresa di Gallura, to the north. So a venue offering a blend of sea and unspoilt nature, unrivalled recipes and ancient traditions.
