DO YOU LOVE FISH AND SEAFOOD?

There are several good fish & seafood restaurants around Chia, South Sardinia, where you can taste fresh delicacies of the sea! For example, try a selection of seafood antipasti such as the pulpo with vegetables, the tuna salad with olives and tomato or the mixed seafood antipasto! To complete your meal you must try the wonderful redfish Catalan style with onions and tomatoes. All this accompanied by a fresh Vermentino wine….Mmmhhh… So delicious!

Our favorite fish & seafood restaurants are the rustic Trattoria da Angelo in Domus de Maria, and in Chia the amazing and lively Ristorante Mirage, the wonderful Ristorante Bithia and the chic Ristorante Crar’è Luna. Make your choice and enjoy!

SOUTH SARDINIA BEACHES – SA COLONIA CHIA

Sa Colonia beach is characterized by a large stretch of white-amber sand, bathed by the emerald and crystalline water and shallow shore, which are so typical of this area. On the left side of the beach you will see the Tower of Chia, while on the left rises the Monte Cogoni. Behind the beach are the beautiful dunes and the lagoon of Chia.

How to get there: From the main road of Chia, follow the signs for Torre Chia, take the last road on the right, go straight to the end until you find the parking. Alternatively, instead of turning to Torre Chia, turn right into the next street (Via del Levante), which runs alongside the lagoon, until you get to the parking. From there continue on foot to the beach.

Services (in the summer): bar, toilets, sunbeds and umbrellas rental, parking, canoe, pedalo, jet ski, excursions, diving, snorkeling and sailing.

Our tips: out of season, free parking and less crowded; avoid in case of Mistral; no seagrass.

3) You can enjoy the same comfort as in your own home

5) Swim in your own pool, whenever you like

AUTUMN IN SARDINIA

Hold on to that summer feeling with an autumn break in South Sardinia!

You can just kick back on one of the island’s near-empty beaches, soak up some rays, read a book, meditate and just feel the moment …. The late summer warmth and the remaining warm water swims make it an exquisite time to enjoy the southern part of the island.

Check out our stylish rental holiday homes in South Sardinia!

SEA DAFFODIL – SYMBOL OF PURITY

This delicate white flower grows spontaneously on the coasts of Sardinia, for example on the protected dunes of Chia. It blooms and reproduces from July to September and its scent is sublime and persistent.

So, please help protect this gift of nature and never step on the dunes.

A GREAT PLACE TO TRY THE GRILLED PIGLET SARDINIAN STYLE

If you are staying in the Chia area, you probably haven’t missed the sign of the Ristorante Bithia, just on the main road to the beaches. Well if you have asked yourself whether you should give them a try, our answer is you should!

This pretty restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and welcomes families with children as well as small groups. Depending on the weather you can eat either in the lovely garden or in the large patio. For cooler days, they also have a few tables inside.

Now let’s talks about their specialties: here is the place where you should try Fregola (a coarse type of couscous) with seafood, fish and meet (e.g. beef ribs) on the grill. On the menu you will also find cutlets, salad dishes and hamburgers. During the summer you can savor the delicious grilled Maialetto Sardo (piglet) which will be served every Tuesday – book in advance! In any case, don’t leave before having tried their delicious desserts, for example the Sfogliata Chantilly (layers of puff pastry with whipped cream and seasonal fruits) and their homemade Sebada (traditional Sardinian fried pastry filled with fresh cheese and honey). Yummmm!

If you have any doubts, just ask the lovely waitress Frederica, which is always friendly and helpful in describing the dishes, even in English.
For bookings contact Ristorante Bithia, Viale Chia 6, 09010 Domus de Maria, Phone +39 0709230069. They also speak English!
