Only a few Km from Oristano, you can find the immense golden beach of Torregrande, situated inside the Gulf of Oristano. This seaside town boasts safe waters which can often seem to be those of a lake, being enclosed by its large gulf. The immense golden beach was formed from the alluvial deposits of the river Tirso. The stretch of sand is overlooked by the Spanish tower of the 1500ís which gives its name to the village and is the largest of the 80 towers positioned by the Spanish along the whole length of the coast.
Frequently, going along the last stretch of straight coastline which leads to the entrance of the town, due to an effect of the heated asphalt and the haze of the rice-fields alongside the road, in a marvellous optical illusion, the tower appears to be suspended in the air, just like in an African mirage. In the evening, along the never-ending, illuminated seafront, amongst the pine trees, the large palms and the local people, the walkway meanders in the coolness which emanates from the sea. A little further north from the built up area, a tourist port guarantees a landing place to smaller crafts. There are numerous excursions and guided visits, ranging from the protected marshlands to the archaeological city of Tharros, famous throughout the world, and the snow-white quartz beaches of Sinis, or inland to the fascinating zone of the nuraghe and the sacred wells.
