About Cala Faa

The beach of Cala Faa (Spiaggia di Cala Faa) is a small cove approximately 4 kilometers south-west of Portobello beach, along the Costa Paradiso in north Sardinia. Cala Faa has a length of just 50 meters, and it is also 50 meters wide. The small beach faces west, featuring views of the waters of the Golfo di li Moli. Cala Faa beach features white sands and is protected at both ends by two cliffs that are covered by typical Mediterranean greenery. Several rock formations protrude from the surface of the water, so it can be rocky here but the waters are of medium depth. Cala Faa tends to be a quiet beach throughout the entire year. Being a small and secluded cove that is not very easy to reach, Cala Faa has no facilities.
