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.

  • is always beautiful: a language of fine beaches surrounded by lush Mediterranean vegetation of the headlands that surround it, the sea gently sloping, sandy bottom that does not require protection for the feet and the water clear and transparent. My favorite windy days on other beaches of Chia, when I want to find a quiet corner without wind and flat water where you can swim and sunbathe

  • This beach is really worth. The crystal clear water refracts the Sun and going crazy colors LaRocca ... Must see!

  • On our tour of the Chia beaches we have also the Cala Cipolla Bay visited. It is directly behind the long Chia beaches. 5 min walk but also directly approachable. We were at the end of the season, so it may look different in the high season. There's already no sunbed rental or food/drink. However, the Bay was very clean even though unbetreut. Very shallow water, ideal for children and peace of mind for parents. Pine and palm trees provide natural shade areas. We had a few hours to snorkel there. Anyone looking for a quiet, free Bay with super water and pleasant atmosphere is right here.
