AN INVIGORATING STROLL BY THE BEACH … and more

In the last few days snow has arrived in European…. Just on time for the advent as beautiful winter landscapes are taking shape and the first snowmen are being built. But what if the return of the cold makes you dream of pristine beaches and sunny days instead?

The desire of a sunny break could lead you straight to South Sardinia where nature awakes early March already. Carpets of flowers cover the plains, flamingos and other birds meet for their yearly reunion and the beaches are all yours to enjoy.

A delight for all sun seekers and nature lovers! For a private and comfortable accommodation check out our stylish Villetta Chillout near Chia and the beach. No matter the season, life in Sardinia is so much better!

AN ENCHANTING COVE WITH FINE AND GOLDEN SAND

Behind sandy dunes with Mediterranean vegetation and a forest of pines and junipers, appears the beautiful and wild cove of Cala Cipolla. It is framed by two headlands of pink granite that stretch towards the sea and make it appear like a natural pool. The beach is located just east of the promontory of Capo Spartivento, which is surmounted by a stunning lighthouse from which you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the entire south-western coast.

Cala Cipolla is characterized by a clear sea, with shimmering shades ranging from intense blue to light green. The sandy bottom is rather shallow, which makes this beach particularly appreciated by families with small children. It is an ideal destination for surfers and is much appreciated by those who practice underwater fishing and diving. The car park is located just hundred meters from the beach, which also has a small kiosk open during the summertime.

OUR FAVORITE PLACE BY THE BEACH

You may find it difficult to locate a restaurant close to the beach with sea view in South Sardinia. But If you are staying around Pula/Chia don’t miss visiting the Oasi di Fabrizio Senis, just on the beach of Santa Margherita di Pula. You will be delighted. It is located on the SS195, turn right by the Pineta arch.
 
You will literally sit just a few meters from the shore with a magnificent view on both sides of the beach. The service is very friendly, and the food is simply but tasty and generous. Try one of their pasta dishes with seafood, the grilled tuna steak with vegetables or a large plate of mussels and clams. We suggest concluding your meal with homemade sweet raviolis and a small mirto (myrtle liqueur).

TAKE ME THERE!

It might have been the Costa Smeralda with its millionaires, models and mega-yachts that made Sardinia internationally famous, but if you want to explore the real Sardinia and its untouched nature, get away from the glitzy Porto Cervo and travel to the south of the island.

Take the Chia area as a base and from there discover the splendid south-western coast – white-sandy beaches adorned with junipers, fragrant maquis and spectacular views will just take your breath away! Explore the lively little town of Pula, visit the local artisans’ shops and relax at one of the cafés around the large piazza… ohhh, while there, don’t forget to visit the historical site of Nora and its gorgeous beach just outside town.

A SECRET COVE NEAR CHIA … SHHHHH

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.
