The coast is made up of various beaches with light sand or pebbles, alternating with small rocky promontories. The landscape also has two basins with pink flamingos, the Spartivento basin, on the West coast, and the Chia basin, on the East coast. Two islets are stationed right in front of the coast; the most important one for its history and archeology is the Su Cardulinu or Isula Manna islet.
The beaches and the promontories, from East to West, are:
Cala de sa musica, only reachable by sea, surrounded by high walls and Mediterranean forest. You may also admire it from the Su Portu beach.
Isolotto Su Cardulinu, where the excavations of the ancient Phoenician settlement can be found.
Su Portu, a white sand beach between the Su Cardolinu islet and the Chia promontory.
Sa Colonia, 1 km of white beach circa, between the Chia and Monte Cogoni promontories.
Monte Cogoni, a small promontory. Its slopes erode in two cliffs that enclose a small sandy roadstead.
Cala del Morto, a tiny beach between to cliffs. Porto Campana is a formation of golden dunes.
Su Giudeu, also called spiaggia de s’Acqua Durci (sweet water beach), is a long sandy beach with stunning dunes.
Cala Cipolla, which you can only reach by walking, is a tiny beach that extends in a sheltered inlet. It is placed between a rocky promontory that separates it from Su Giudeu on the East side and from Capo Spartivento on the West Side. From Cala Cipolla you can track till the Capo Spartivento Lighthouse.
