SNORKELING IN CHIA BAY

With its 1800 kilometers of coastline, Sardinia is a paradise for those who love diving and snorkeling. In its seabed you can discover ship and aircraft wrecks as well as archaeological finds, which now seem like they always belonged to that world.

If you are staying in South West Sardinia we recommend the Chia Bay, a golden dream beach with stunning crystal clear waters and a rich underwater world. The high sandy dunes, the charming islet of Su Giudeu just in front and a beautiful beach… What else could you ask for? Welcome to paradise!
