What people are saying about Pink Beach, Sardinia

Great tour, even on an overcast day with intermittent drizzling! We still saw all of the listed sites and had plenty of time to swim and hang out during the two beach stops we made. Once the cloud cover lifted and the sun came out, we got to see some truly stunning views. The boat provided was large with lots of outdoor seating. You were required to wear your mask while walking around which we appreciated, but you did not have to wear them while you were seated. The tour company may want to consider spacing out the seating so that people sit every other row, as we felt like we were sitting a little too close to the folks in front and behind us. The tour guide, Claudia, was incredible and had so much information to share. Others had noted that her English translation is definitely a little briefer/less detailed than her Spanish/Italian/French translations, but if you know a little of another language you'll catch the rest :) The crew was also very friendly and helpful.

Great activity! Our interlocutor spoke French, English and Italian, a pleasure to be able to understand everything. We stopped at several beaches it was very nice Good lunch offered on the boat bof bof but in relation to the price (5€ pasta) but it is better to bring back your picnic. Other than that everything was perfect

We have enjoyed the tour. The best part of the tour was that you could experience and explore the amazing beaches on your own. I really recommend this tour to anyone who wants a relaxing day with wonderful scenery.

The approximately 7-hour tour was really well organized and gave us a great time. The crew on board was in a great mood, the catering on the boat was varied and inexpensive.

If you are in Sardinia you should have done the tour. Everything was very nice
