Cala Cipolla, Chia
(3.7/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
A small bay and a forest of pine and juniper trees hide Cala Cipolla, a gorgeous stretch of sand and turquoise water that's a popular hangout for off-season surfers. While the beach lacks facilities for shade, the trees provide plenty of space to escape the sun. If you need a little excitement, dive in and explore one of the area's best snorkeling sites, try surfing the modest waves, walk to the Capo Spartivento lighthouse, or find the flamingo breeding ground at the beach of Su Giudeu and spot the quirky birds. Tip: crowds at this famous beach are minimal in the morning. To visit Cala Cipolla and other attractions in Domus de Maria, use our Domus de Maria vacation trip planner.

  • Cala Cipolla is one of the beautiful beaches of Chia, small but extraordinarily beautiful. Easy to get to.

  • Great space for relax and jump in the blue amazing sea... Not so fare from Cagliari!!!!the perfect months for go in Sardinia is May because not is so hot! 
  • We stayed for the first time 3 years ago and it was heaven. This year we found it too crowded, with dirty water (although I think it's more a problem of current). It would be useful to block access to a maximum number of people as already happens in other coves around
