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.

Coltellazzo Spanish Tower

Nora-X-SITOYour visit to the archaeological site of Nora (near Pula) can be completed with a visit to the Tower of Coltellazzo, a Spanish construction placed on top of a volcanic promontory. The Tower, built by Philip II between 1580 and 1610, was part of a defensive system set up by the Spanish to defend their territories from the incursions of the African Berbers.

Today, the monument hosts a lighthouse. Although it cannot be visited inside, the climbing up to its entrance makes all your efforts worthwhile: the view from that point embraces on one side the Gulf of Cagliari and on the other the ruins of Nora and the hills of Santa Margherita. An easy walk for a later afternoon.

PULA: A SUMMER FULL OF SURPRISES

For the 37th consecutive year, the nights of Pula (South Sardinia) will be animated by the show Pula Dimensione Estate, a vast program that will entertain locals and travelers in July and August.

A broad variety of cultural events dedicated to theater and dance, live music, various shows, ethnic and traditional events, exhibitions, open air cinema, book presentations, workshops, tastings and religious events, will frame the 2017 season.

The appointment with the two grand festivals, “La Notte dei Poeti” (Poets’ night) and the “Nora Jazz Festival”, with national and international guests, can not be overlooked.

The tourist Infopoint is located in Corso Vittorio Emanuele, where qualified staff will inform about Pula and the area.

The program can be downloaded here:

What to do in SouthSardinia – Sailing – Sailing Tour along the Gulf of Teulada and Cala Zaffarano

The south coast of Sardinia is an almost untouched paradise. Take this day tour on a sailing boat and discover the area around Teulada with its wild nature, numerous cliffs, crystal clear sea and almost deserted white sandy beaches. Visit Cala Zaffarano that can only be reached by boat: a beach of fine and soft sand, protected from the wind by small sand dunes where junipers and sea lilies live in loneliness and harmony. On the shore, the erosion of coral, gave to the sea unique pink reflex.

The tour starts in the new marina of Teulada at 10:30. Lunch will be served aboard and you will return at 17:00. For reservations, contact: https://www.sardeo.com/reservation/

What’s to do in Sardinia – Beach hopping

Originally shared by +Sardinia Holidays Villa Rental Teulada

Sardinia has hands down, some of the best beaches in the entire Mediterranean. In fact, some of the best in the world. Naming the top 10 beaches is not easy, so I’ll stick to the ones we have in south western Sardinia. You can pick up a different one every day – and still miss out on the others if you don’t stay more than 10 days.

Here is our Top 10 list and they’re all starting just 5 Km from Casa Teulada
