Chia Beach (Spiaggia di Chia or Spiaggia della Baia di Chia) is located in one of the most pristine bays that the Costa del Sud area in the province of Cagliari has to offer. With its sands’ colours reminiscent of small peaches, dunes covered with juniper trees and turquoise waves gently rolling towards the coastline, it should come as absolutely no surprise that Chia beach is one of the best beaches of south Sardinia. Chia beach is 750 meters long and up to 90 meters wide, and lies 500 meters north-east of Su Giudeu, another beach in the area that is definitely worth a visit. The lagoon behind Chia beach is an important flamingo breeding ground, and if you’re very lucky, you might spot some dolphins swimming in the sea. Located at the foot of a promontory you’ll find the local place of interest named Torre di Chia, offering impressive views of the local surroundings and good opportunities to take some pictures. Torre di Chia can be reached on foot from the beach, from the car parking it will be about a 400 meter walk. During July and August the beaches in this area can get very crowded, but in the months of June and September you should be able to find more solitude. Chia beach is one of the best kitesurfing beaches of Sardinia, it is where the Chia Classic takes place, a windsurfing, kitesurfing and surfing event held each year between April and June.
