Calamosca is located in Cagliari, thus enjoying all the benefits of a city: the proximity of hotels, restaurants and cafes. In the locality of Calamosca, the beach of the same name presents itself with a seashore of coarse sand mixed with gravel of different sizes, bordered on the western side by a bluff and the promontory of Colle Sant'Elia, overlooked by a watchtower; the large hill has, over time, become famous as the Devil’s Saddle, from a legend that sees Lucifer, the devil, unsaddled by the angels.

The beach of Calamosca, even if in an area set apart from the city, is not only visited by the inhabitants of Cagliari, but also discovered by tourists that are struck by the beauty of its shoals, full of light and shades of colour.

The Poetto beach is truly vast, stretching as it does between Cagliari and Quartu Sant'Elena, and closed off at one end by the Sella del Diavolo Headland. A walk up the headland, along a nature trail starting at Calamosca, a bay flanking its western slope, in less than one hour offers a sweeping vista embracing the whole city and the beach. As Poetto is backed by the Molentargius and Saline wetlands, standing on the beach it is often possible to spy the stately flight of flocks of pink flamingos, which have been safely nesting since 1993 in a protected oasis, one of a kind in Italy, sheltered from the road by a thick band of marsh reeds.  Once thronged by colourful wooden beach huts, locally known as the “casotti”, the beach today has a full range of facilities: equipped lidos, kiosks, bars, restaurants, supermarkets, sea sports centres, a marina, a permanent fun fair and other attractions. The built area behind the beach is in itself a quarter of the city, and offers urban services such as parking areas and a hospital, as well as the tourist port of Marina Piccola.

Situated just before the promontory of Capo Spartivento, from which the tall tower of the lighthouse can be admired, Cala Cipolla is surrounded by pines and secular junipers. The panorama offered by this coastal line also includes the expanse of beaches, ponds and promontories that develop around the tower of Chia, with the whole remainder of the South Coast (Costa del Sud) that stretches out to the west up to Capo Teulada. The beach has pure white sand and granite rocks of a thousand forms. Cala Cipolla, which borders with the bay of S’Acqua Durci della Baia di Chia, is not particularly large but it boasts remarkable beauty owed to the crystal clarity of the sea and the highlights of the sand. The cove is enclosed by granite bluffs.

Located in one of the most beautiful corners of the island, between Pula and Capo Spartivento, an unforgettable highlight of Forte Village. Protected by a chain of mountains, it's never too windy or too hot. The sea, too, is wonderfully alluring, as the almost sub-tropical microclimate makes the sea-temperature an impressive 2nd warmer than other parts of Sardinia.

30 kilometres southeast of Cagliari amidst a fascinating landscape of unspoiled sand dunes, aquamarine inlets and strange rock formations lies Geremeas. Its two long sandy beaches, Spiaggia Geremeas and Spiaggia Cannesisa, are framed by a coastline of unparalleled beauty. The unusual juxtaposition of the spectacular sea and a spiffy village makes for an ideal blend of urbanity and nature. The long, non-touristic beach is only a five minutes’ walk from the villas.

Chia - Su Giudeu is located 2 km far from Chia, along the coast after the beach of Porto Campana.
It is, with any doubts, among the most beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean sea: really wide and flour-like sand, and marvellous waters. All around, the 20 metres high dunes are covered by ancient junipers modelled by the wind. On the right side of the beach, 150 metres far away from the sea, there is a big, dark reef where, in spring, wild goats use to herd. It is possible to reach it walking through the sandy  shallows that sometimes rise completely from the water, or swimming for few metres. From the top you will enjoy an amazing sight on the whole coast of Chia.

The beach of Nora is located  in the locality of the same name, in the municipal area of Pula. It has white, mixed grain sand, enclosed by a rock formation, and its waters are shallow and thus ideal for families with children that can play on the shore without being in danger.
Close to the beach is the small medieval church of Sant'Efisio, in memory of the place where it is said that the saint found martyrdom.

The beach is near the archaeological zone of Nora, a city founded by the Phoenicians between the 9th and 8th centuries B.C., the most ancient apparently in Sardinia. The archaeological area is situated at the foot of the promontory of Capo di Pula, in a position that allowed sure landing, whatever the type of wind.

It has many facilities: it is wheelchair accessible, has a large car park suitable for campervans; there are hotels, cafés, restaurants and it is possible to rent beach umbrellas, sun-loungers and pedal boats.
