Influencer who lives in dubai is fined 1.800 euros because she was walking on the forbidden pink beach of Sardinia. She received the sentence after she published videos and photos of her visit on social networks, they report foreign media.

The woman of Brazilian origin arrived in a dinghy on the coast of Spiaggia Rosa, famous for its pink sand, ignoring all signs and warnings about the ban. The beach is located on the island of Budelli, which is part of the Maddalena archipelago near the Bonifacio Strait in northern Sardinia.

Since the 90s, tourists have been forbidden to walk on that beach and swim. Visits are only allowed during the day, and the island can be reached, with approval, by smaller boats and dinghies. Only walking is allowed on the path behind the beach.

The influencer, who has more than 35.000 followers, posted a video of herself walking on pink sand to the song "La Vie en rose" by Edith Piaf. The incident happened a few days ago, and officials opened an investigation against the influencer after outraged people from Sardinia rioted over her posts.

Officials quickly identified the woman and informed her of the fine of 1.800 euros, of which 300 euros are fined for violating the ban and 1.500 euros for arriving on the island by boat without a permit. The woman rented a dinghy, and the owner of the boat did not know that she intended to sail to the island.

By the way, Budelli Island is uninhabited, and for more than 30 years it was home to one resident, Mauro Morandi, who stumbled upon the island in 1989 after his catamaran broke down on the way to the South Pacific. Morandi, who some have compared to Robinson Crusoe, managed to stay and became the de facto sole guardian of the island, but in 2021 the authorities forced him to leave the island. Morandi was then 84 years old.
