If you are staying in one of our rental properties in Eden Rock, the beach is never too far away (600 – 1500 m). The family-friendly beach of Cala Marina has fine white sand, clear emerald waters, sandy and shallow bottom for several tens of meters from the shore. A few rocks can be found in the water and on the beach, but there is practically no seaweed. Even in the busy summer months, you can find your small piece of paradise – just for you.

How to get there: Take either the junction to Cala Marina (just across the Capo Blu village) then head towards the sea. You can find free parkings under the pines but arriving early in high season is essential. Services (in the summer): bar, toilets, sunbed and umbrella rental.

The beach of Dune di Campana is surrounded by centuries-old junipers and very fine, white sand, which enriched by sea lilies, seems to shine. But the real point of attraction are the sand dunes, which can reach up to 20 metres high. Note that it is strictly forbidden to walk on the dunes!

With its shallow and stunningly transparent waters, Dune di Campana beach is ideal for families with children. Snorkelers, scuba fishing enthusiasts and divers will love this exceptional location, while on a windy day, it becomes the perfect spot for wind and kite surfers.

The beach has many facilities and is wheelchair accessible. It has a large car park, café, restaurant, camping as well as water sport equipment. To reach the beach, drive in direction of Chia, turn at the junction for Capo Spartivento and follow the signposts that point towards the beach.

If you are looking for a small creek which is not overly crowded, then Cala del Morto (Dead’s creek) near Chia is what you should be heading for. Its name is due to the presence of a cross between the rocks nearby, but the beach is absolutely secure.

How to get there:
Once in Chia, continue towards Teulada and when you arrive near the Hotel Chia Laguna turn left. After about 400 meters turn left again and leave your car at the parking lot behind the beach of Porto Campana. At this point, take the path on your left looking towards the sea for another few hundred meters. And there it is, the small sheltered Cala del Morto, one of the most beautiful places in the Bay of Chia.

This post starts a series about the beaches of South Sardinia, near and around Pula, Chia and Teulada. Today we start with the beach of Cala Marina (also called Cala Bernardini).

If you are staying in one of our rental properties in Eden Rock, the beach is never too far away (600 – 1500 m) and can be reached on foot. The family-friendly beach of Cala Bernardini forms, with the beach of Riva dei Pini, a single beach of fine white sand, clear emerald waters, sandy and shallow bottom for several tens of meters from the shore. A few rocks can be found in the water and on the beach, but there is practically no seaweed.

Following the trail on the right towards the pink granite rocks, you will discover other small coves of fine sand and further the beach of Pinus Village. Behind lies a dense Mediterranean vegetation which perfumes the air.

How to get there: Take either the junction to Cala Marina (just across the Capo Blu village) or to the village Riva dei Pini, then head towards the sea. You can also reach the Pinus Village beach by crossing the village.

Services (in the summer): bar, toilets, sunbed and umbrella rental, parking

Our tip: If you prefer to take the car, make sure to arrive before 10 am, especially in July and August. In the summer you can park for a fee, out of season it’s mostly free of charge. Avoid driving through Pinus Village in July/August.

The Monte Cogoni beach is located in Chia in the municipality of Domus de Maria. It is next to the beach of Sa Colonia, which can also be accessed on foot following a path around the the tower of Chia (watch video).

The beach of Sa Colonia, in turn, joins the beach of Su Portu and is characterized by the presence of Cardolinu, an islet attached to the beach by a narrow isthmus of sand. The Monte Cogoni beach has a light-colored sand, low dunes and is interesting because of the Chia lagoon, where you will see egrets, coots, herons and the beautiful pink flamingos.

Its shallow water makes it safe for children to play. This beach is ideal for snorkeling or scuba diving and by windy conditions, it is an ideal spot for surfers.

You can get there by following the signs to Torre di Chia or Spiaggia Sa Colonia. it is accessible to the disabled and offers camping, bar and restaurant.

The spectacular Cala Luna beach is a long stretch of fine white sand featuring several stunning caves as well as a transparent and shallow blue sea. It is located north of Arbatax and south of the Gulf of Orosei, a short distance from Cala Gonone, where you will find the mind-blowing caves of Bue Marino.

The beach is easily accessible by boat from Cala Gonone. Adventurous travelers can hike along the road of Golgo (near Baunei) and then take the downhill path to the sea. The reward: sensational views!

This is also a great excursion if you travel to the South and your check-in is late in the afternoon, or if you have a few hours to spend before embarking on the ferry in the North of the island.

Are you looking for a day of adventure combined with some me time on the beach? Then we strongly recommend an excursion to Porto Tramatzu near Teulada, on the south coast of Sardinia.

The beach of Porto Tramatzu is one of the very best location in the area. Its white and soft sand is bathed by a stunning turquoise and crystal clear sea, the seabed is shallow and slopes gently to the shore. The fancy beach club is very well equipped with elegant sunbeds (some are super-sized!), free bathrooms and showers, changing rooms and a bar, which serves light lunches.

If you fancy some action, ask Alessandro, the very friendly chap who rents water equipment on the beach. They have a large choice of rubber dinghies, some of which can be rented without license, pedalos, canoes and jet skis. You can also ride on the Banana boat for the thrills or join a guided boat tour, which will lead you to secluded and pristine beaches, which can only be reached by boat.

If you are staying in the Chia area, take this opportunity to discover the panoramic road to Teulada! The view on the coast and the beaches below are absolutely breath-taking and well worth the trip. On the way, you can make a stop on the spectacular Tuerredda beach, just for the pleasure of the senses. Enjoy and share your comments if you like!
