f you are staying more than a couple of days, we recommend renting a car at Alghero airport. It will be useful for getting back and forth to the airport and for exploring the best beaches that are within 4 and 7 km of Bosa. (Unfortunately there is not public transportation to all beaches.)
If a car isn’t your thing, no worries; there is a bus line that runs from the Alghero airport to Bosa.
Here’s the link for the schedule:
At the Arrivals exit, just before the car rental booths, you’ll find an automated ticket machine on the wall.
To find the bus stop, exit the airport from the doors by the bar and turn right. Look for the bus marked “Alghero-Bosa”.
Get off at Piazza Zanetti (the last stop), collect your bags and proceed straight ahead, where your gaze will inevitably be drawn up to the castle walls and the colourful stone houses: BLU is one of these houses that together comprise Bosa’s evocative medieval quarter called “Sa Costa”. At Piazza Gioberti (with its unusual fountain), continue directly up the street that ends at the big church in Piazza Carmine. From the church, turn right and follow the signs up the narrow, winding cobblestone street toward the restaurant “Borgo S’Ignazio”. You’ll feel the sensation of having entered into another dimension: pastel-colored stone houses; narrow, winding and intersecting cobblestone streets, curious cats that pass, meowing their “welcome”. It’s impossible to avoid being captured by the fascination and mystery of this place, unique even in Italy.
Once you’ve passed by the restaurant, proceed another 100 metres until you arrive at an intersection where the street rises on the left. Take the rise and follow it up, winding up to the right (look for the the old sign “Via Muruidda”). You’re almost there! Continuing straight, you’ll arrive at BLU on your right.
From the airport, follow the signs to Alghero, then take the coastal highway SP49, one of the most panoramic routes in Sardegna that takes you directly to Bosa. You’ll likely spot various species of wild birds and animals along this untouched coastline; make sure to keep your eyes on the road and don’t get distracted, especially if you’re driving at night.
Continue until you see the sign for Bosa, proceed to the rotunda and turn left, following the directions to “Centro”. Follow the directions to “Castello” (Castle); look up and you’ll see the castle walls presiding over the colorful rows of stone houses below. Our BLU is one of these houses which, together, comprise this medieval quarter called Sa Costa.
Take the SS597/E840 towards Sassari and after 60 km, take the SS131 towards Cagliari Mores Chilivani. Continue until the Macomer exit, take the exit and follow the signs for Bosa.
You will pass through the towns of Sindia and Suni and then the road begins the long descent towards the sea.
When you see a spectacular view below, of a little town with ribbons of colorful attached stone houses nestled in the red rock hills, you are almost here in Bosa.
There are two ways to reach Bosa from Porto Torres: either follow the directions for Alghero and then take the beautiful coastal highway SP49 (driving distance approximately 83 km) or take the SS131 in the direction Sassari/Cagliari (driving distance approximately 125 km). We recommend the latter as it is faster and simpler. Follow the 131 and take the Macomer exit, then follow the signs for Bosa. You will pass through the towns of Sindia and Suni and then the road begins the long descent towards the sea. When you see a spectacular view below, of a little town with ribbons of colorful attached stone houses nestled in the red rock hills, you are almost here in Bosa.
Continue until Macomer, exit and follow the signs to Bosa. You will cross the towns of Sindia and Suni and when you will see from a spectacular village perched on a rocky hill with the colorful houses that cling to each other, we are almost there in Bosa. The road goes down, you will notice on your left two large supermarkets; go straight, cross the old bridge, immediately turn left and follow the signs to the castle.
Take the SS131 in the direction of Oristano-Sassari for approximately 150 km, take the Macomer exit and follow the signs for Bosa. You will pass through the towns of Sindia and Suni and then the road begins the long descent towards the sea. When you see a spectacular view below, of a little town with ribbons of colorful attached stone houses nestled in the red rock hills, you are almost here in Bosa.
Take the S292 in the direction of Cuglieri (not to be confused with Cagliari!) and then follow the signs for Bosa. At Turas, turn follow the coastal road for approximately 1 km, then take the first right turn over a small bridge/overpass. Continue to the end of this road and then turn right and follow this road, with the Temo River on your left and the colorful houses of Bosa in the distance.
