Torre Chia Camping shares the border with the beautiful beach of Su Portu which is directly accessible from the campsite.
The coast is alternated with wonderful fine sandy beaches (or also coarse sand) and low rocky promontories. Behind the dunas two nice fishponds enrich the landscape: Spartivento on west and Chia on east are ideal places to admire some colonies of pink flamingos.
In front of the coast you can find some little islands. The most important one, under the historical and archeologic aspect, is Su Cardulinu o Isula manna.
Here all the fascinating beaches and promontories from east to west:
Cala de sa musica, a little bay only accessible from the sea and completely surrounded by low rocky hills covered with Mediterranean vegetation. On the dry land, you can discover Cala de sa Musica from the beach Il Porticciolo.
Isolotto Su Cardulinu (“mushroom” in Sardinian dialect ) offers the chance to visit the excavations of the Ancient Phoenician settlement of Bithia.
Il Porticciolo, a golden beach overlooking the bay, is bordered on west with the little island of Su Cardulinu and on east with the promontory of Chia.
Sa Colonia is a long sandy beach situated between the promontory of Chia and Monte Cagoni. It separates the fishpond of Chia from the seaside.
Monte Cogoni is not really a “mountain” but a little promontory with a breathtaking view of the sea, a bit higher than 60m. A small sandy bay is created by its rocky cliffs.
Cala del Morto is another fascinating bay overlooked by the Monte Cogoni and surrounded by short cliffs.
Porto Campana, a charming mix of sandy dunes, just next to Sa Colonia.
Su Giudeu, also called “de s’Acqua Durci” (fresh water) is an expanse of fine and white sand and together with Porto Campana offers all its beauty to visitors of Spartivento dunes.
Cala Cipolla is a suggestive little beach easily reachable on foot. A rocky hill separates this amazing bay from Su Giudeu and the cliffs of Capo Spartivento.
From Cala Cipolla a short path will lead you to the lighthouse of Capo Spartivento: then just breathe and enjoy the great south coast of Sulcis!
