Bosa is a tranquil old medieval seaside town on the gorgeous west coast of Sardinia (40 km south of Alghero), with wonderful, unspoilt nature and breathtakingly, beautiful beaches. Bosa is perched on a rocky hill-top, overlooking the river valley, the local fruit orchards and 1 kilometer-long sandy beach. Bosa is an ideal location for nature lovers and hikers. There are many beaches nearby. Each beach has a different character - from sandy parts to remote rocky coves which can be reached on foot or by boat. You could easily go to a different beach every day!
For those who love nature, Sardinia is a paradise. You will find many rare species of plants and animals, some of which are exclusive to Sardinia. To the north of Bosa, in a protected area, you can find one of the few remaining nesting sites of the Griffon Vulture. These huge birds can often be seen circling over the road leaving Bosa towards Alghero.
The coastal road to Alghero continues north, clinging to the side of the hills and offering spectacular views. The landscape is remote with few other roads and little human presence. There are miles of excellent macchia scrub along this road, as well as small tracts of holm oak forests in some of the valleys, which for most of the year have freshwater streams. These streams attract insects and therefore there are more bird species. There are plenty of lay-bys for parking and there is an Alghero - Bosa bus which stops at a few sightseeing points along the way.
