Sant'Andrea Beach

Sant'Andrea beach is located at the locality with the same name in the municipality of Quartu Sant'Elena, between Villa Romana and Flumini.

The beach is not large but it is quite extensive. It is mainly characterized by fine white sand. The transparent water is green in color and has a shallow and sandy bottom.

The wonder of this beach is that, during mistral wind days, its sea takes on a crystalline turquoise color . It is never overly crowded.

Leaving the beach of Sant’Andrea, you have its natural continuation in the beach of Flumini di Quartu, interrupted the Su Pau river, which cuts the beach.

A healthy 45/60 minute walk on the water's edge can allow you to reach the remains of the Roman villa which stretches out like a small peninsula on the clear and fishy sea. It is no coincidence that a large number of cormorants are stably stationed among the emerging ruins.

A beautiful terrace allows you to wander along the entire Golfo degli Angeli bay to see gentle sunrises and fiery sunsets.

With a little imagination, you can relive the long history of this coast with your imagination. It is easy to think that landings took place on this beach in Phoenician and then Roman times ... certainly the French settled here in 1793.

From here they moved to attack Quartu. There are written records that indicate their headquarters in the current Andrea Parodi park (park around the church of Sant'Andrea) and in the area of ​​the church of San Forzorio. After long battles the Quartu people managed to drive the French out of their territory.
