Monte Cogoni Beach (Spiaggia di Monte Cogoni), located in Chia, Domus de Maria, belongs to the best beaches of South Sardinia. It has a length of approximately 200 meters. The total length of this stretch of sand, including that of Spiaggia di Sa Colonia and Spiaggia di Chia, is nearly 800 meters. Monte Cogoni Beach faces southwest, offering beautiful views over the deep blue waters of Chia Bay. La Torre di Chia, a sixteenth-century watchtower, compliments the scenery on the north side of the beach. At the base of the tower are ruins of the ancient Phoenician city of Bithia. The beach is backed by a few low dunes and a pond, where birdwatchers will find great satisfaction admiring the elegant pink flamingos and other migratory birds. Shallow waters and a gentle slope make Monte Cogoni Beach suitable for families with children. Wind conditions at this beach are ideal for surfing, and it’s also a favorite spot in Chia for scuba diving. Snorkeling enthusiasts can explore the colorful waters that are rich in fish. You’ll find plenty of services including a lovely bar for lunches and a restaurant. Keep in mind that this beach area has no natural shadow zones, so bring sun protection and something for shade.
