Prince’s Beach Principe Beach Spiaggia del principe (Poltu di Li Cogghj).

Spiaggia del Principe (Poltu di Li Cogghj) is located in Sardinia, north of Olbia, in the municipality of Arzachena, on the Emerald Coast.

Its name translated from the Gallurese language to Italian means “Porto delle Pelli,” this is because, this beach, in the past, was used to ship leather and local manufactured products. Its current name, that is, of Spiaggia del Principe, is certainly after the birth of the Emerald Coast, and is due to a certain predilection Prince Aga Khan is said to have had for this place. The Prince himself, chose Poltu di li cogghj for the construction of one of his villas, villa, which was later not built. Spiaggia del Principe is known to be one of the most enchanting places on the Costa Smeralda, very fine white sand, crystal clear waters in a natural setting of rare beauty, a true pearl of the Costa Smeralda, a place to visit without any doubt.

The place has a very interesting peculiarity; it consists of two sandy shores, surrounded by granite rocks smoothed by the wind and with several junipers adding character to this portion of the Emerald Coast with its completely wild features.
