I'll be back to talk about Italy, our beautiful Italy and some of the best beaches of south west Sardinia.

I must admit that I feel a little fear in talking about our beautiful country. In short, I am often afraid of not being able to give due credit to the territory and I think there could certainly be more suitable people, perhaps the locals, to describe such beauty. Then, instead, I realize that even if I'm not a local, my little and short experience can help. So, here I am talking about some of the most beautiful beaches in Southern Sardinia.

For a couple of years Sardinia has been my favorite summer destination. Those were years I needed to beautiful beaches e crystal clear sea. The first year I dedicated it to the North of Sardinia, the classic Costa Smeralda to be clear; the second year I “tried” the South and was delighted by it.

If it were up to me I would have returned every year. Unfortunately, however, it is not possible, the world is so big and the days of vacation are so few ... It's a shame also because to go to Sardinia I have always preferred the night ferry, and the ferry trip on the bridge is always a trip to Sardinia. self. Each crossing has left me with many good memories. In the booking tickets for Sardinia I have always organized myself as economically as possible. The first time, as a complete inexperienced in ferry travel, I waited too long trying to take an inside seat. I blissfully walked around the ship, outside, inside, everywhere… and when it came to looking for a place to sit down for the night, I couldn't help but be satisfied with the stairwell and its air conditioning.

As you can imagine, I learned my lesson and on subsequent trips I adjusted accordingly and I no longer went to see the stars on the deck of the ship ...

But returning to Sardinia and to beaches of southern Sardinia, what struck me about this piece of Sardinia?

The difference with the North was evident, less territory usurped for the construction of hotels and villages and a certainly more typical and genuine context.

By nature I prefer to be in contact with people who are less artificial as possible, linked to local traditions and their own history. This is what I found in Southern Sardinia and that you readers who are reading this post will probably find too. Not that I didn't like the North, on the contrary, it was a beautiful holiday with splendid beaches even in that case. The South, I can't tell you why, gave me something extra which I now remember in a very pleasant way. It seemed to me that I was in a less brazenly touristic context, starting with the place where I was staying.

I was not yet using the current online booking systems consistently. I ended up on a site that was probably very linked to the German target and, honestly, I booked with a bit of concern.

Never another choice was more appropriate.

The place was beautiful, immersed in the countryside just outside Pula in close contact with nature and with the animals of the B&B. Basically it was a kind of farm.

I liked Pula itself a lot, livable, tranquilla e feature. Every evening there were music or other events in the town square with many street artists. By the way, I wrote an interesting article on what I think of street artists.

However, the time has come to talk about the beaches of South Western Sardinia….

Some of the most beautiful beaches in Southern Sardinia

I confess that it is also difficult for me to choose the beaches of Sardinia they're all beautiful as I love its inhabitants too. When it comes to Caribbean beaches, you are not mistaken, indeed, I will tell you when I return from this year's holidays as I will do a on the road in Mexico.

Santa Margherita di Pula beach

Among all the beaches that I will list, this is the one closest to your hypothetical base Pula. It's a free beach, the water slowly degrades (like most of the beaches in this stretch) and is therefore suitable for those traveling with children. The beach is very extensive and stretches along the coast towards the nearby Chia Bay.

Cala Lunga (near Porto Pino)

During my vacation in this part of Sardinia it was the most distant beach from Pula that I have ever visited. I must admit that the road to get there is a bit winding but, in my opinion, the cove pays off for the time used to reach it. Probably Cala Cipolla or other coves are more accessible and impactful, this should be appreciated, and once appreciated it is really fantastic. When I went I had a greenish color of the water, it was a sight. Then if you want to venture to the right side of the rocks (better not alone), you will be able to see Cala Lunga from an even better angle. I remember that this cove had surprised me for this very reason.

Chia Bay beaches

There are several beaches that can be counted among those of Chia. They are even 7 which extend along the coast from Chia to the south

On Giudeu

One of these beaches is Su Giudeu. It can be reached in about 20 minutes by car from Pula. It is located exactly behind one of the Chia ponds: the Stangioni de su Sali. It is a beach very very nice, certainly among the most beautiful I've ever seen.


It doesn't beat the Elafonissi beach of Crete but still he defends himself great.

Su Giudeu is a very light sandy beach which has two peculiarities. Firstly, there are the wind-shaped sand dunes on which there are centuries-old junipers, secondly in front of the Su Giudeu beach there is an islet that characterizes the panorama.

Tip: Bring a mask and snorkel and snorkel around the islet.

Tuaredda beach

Tuaredda beach is also part of the Chia beaches. It is definitely one of the most distant, but certainly also one of the most beautiful and fascinating. It is smaller and much less extensive, for example, than that of Su Giudeu. But it's still a show. Maybe it's a little busier but the crystal clear sea rewards the effort to be close to so many people.

Cala Cipolla

This is a cove that is located after the promontory at the end of the long beach of Su Giudeu. Although very small, I remember it as extremely interesting. Being a cove it is more "intimate" and relaxing. If you then go up on the promontory on the left you will have a splendid view over the whole of Cala Cipolla.

Conclusion: This piece of Sardinia and its beaches impressed me a lot and have remained in my heart. I promised myself to go back to spend even a few days only. I was very happy with both the managers of our B&B and the local people we met during our stay. And then water, do we want to talk about it? Wonderful.

So .... good tan among the most beautiful beaches of the South / West coast of Sardinia!
