the 7 most beautiful beaches of Chia
1. Porto Campana beach
The famous white sand dunes up to 20 meters high are located right next to this beautiful location near Domus de Maria. Porto Campana beach also known as Campana dune beach offers enchanting scenery.
Crystalline and transparent water. Soft and amber sand. The bottom is basically low and this means that this beach is perfect for children.
In the area there are beach services, kiosks and you can rent equipment for water sports
2. Su giudeu beach
Among all the beaches in Chia this is probably the most beautiful! Also called s’Abba Durci beach (it means fresh water beach), is a long stretch of white sand surrounded by high dunes. Not in many parts of the world will you have the opportunity to swim in one of the crystal clear waters and at the same time admire the pink flamingos of the nearby pond
Sandy bottom. Very fun to explore with a pair of goggles and fins to reach the island that is located a few meters from the shore.
The beach is quite extensive so it is never overly crowded. The blue of the sea will appear almost suddenly after the short walk from the parkin. Just cross the dunes, junipers and mirto trees: all of Sardinia is here!
3. isolotto de su cardolinu beach
The beach is separated into two small coves by a thin strip of sand. When the tide is low you can easily reach the island and admire the view from another perspective.
One of the wildest beaches in Chia, with no facilities. It also turns out to be very intimate and reserved for those who love peace and direct contact with nature. Behind this beach the dense Mediterranean vegetation that extends for several meters from the parking lot
4. sa colonia beach
Long stretch of sand dominated by the small promontory with the tower. The ideal place to relax.
Just go a few more meters far from the parking lot to find a free and quiet space even in the busiest months.
The sand is sometimes very white and sometimes amber-colored, which gently slopes towards the sea. The backdrop in this case is rather low and gradual. Largely free with a small establishment with bars and services
If you really want to be abducted by the colors stay until sunset …
5. porticciolo beach
A small half moon of striking beauty. This little gem is right in the middle between the beach of Su Cardolinu and Sa Colonia. It is possible to take a tour of many of the beaches of this area alternating between a walk and a swim.
The Chia tower can be reached with a 10-minute walk on the small promontory.
This is also a small pristine and natural beach. The difference between the other beaches is that the bottom here is deeper and is more exposed to the wind. The sand especially along the shore is less sandy and more granular. One of the ideal destinations for snorkeling
6. cala cipolla beach
Not very large beach. If you want to make the most of this beach maybe the month of August is not really ideal. In high season it fills up very easily so it would be advisable to visit it during low-season periods to be able to appreciate it at its best.
Apart from that … what a show! The colors: the turquoise water, the bright green of the Mediterranean, the scent of myrtle shrubs. It’s not just a beach, it’s an experience! Also nice the walk up to the lighthouse of Capo Spartivento to enjoy a view that will enrich even a little more your visit in Sardinia
7. spiaggetta del morto
If you ever have the chance to find a day with few people you will have the feeling of being on your private beach. Really small, a perfect cove to enjoy a day at the beach without too many frills.
Here too, the colors are the master: the bright blue and the green on the back. The amber white sand. Wear the fins mask for fun with snorkeling on the rocky coast that surrounds it.
