Posada beach in Sardinia is the best beach in Italy, according to the Legambiente and Touring Club’s ‘Guida Blu’, a yearly ranking of the country’s beaches and lakes.

A further 17 of the island’s beaches were awarded either four or five ‘sails’, making it the region with the highest number of awards for its beaches in Italy.

Sicily’s Santa Marina Salina came in second place and was followed by Pollica in Salerno, Castiglione della Pescaia in Tuscany and Villasimius, also in Sardinia.

Other regions in the country whose beaches were recognized for both their beauty and friendliness to the environment included Puglia, Luguria, Campania and Basilicata.

The locations are also ranked according to their ability to promote environmental awareness while attracting tourism.
