A Day in Paradise! The Beaches of Chia!

Chia Beach

Chia Beach

I'm sure each small stretch of soft sand has a name, but I'm happy to group my opinion around a simply labeled BEACHES OF CHIA as my favorite this far.


This year marked my first visit to this glorious island of beautifully kind people. I was happy in cafes, in ristorantes, and in piazzas of all sizes. But, I went for the beaches :)

The serenity of this stretch of beaches, and the fact that there are minimal structures anywhere close to the area, brought me a sense of "arriving" to something I always knew was out there. Bellisima!

Andrew's reply: It sounds as if you have fallen in love with Sardinia too Jacqui :-) Be careful...it becomes a life long addiction very easily indeed.

Talking about Chia, I too love the beaches around this part of the island and for anyone interested in discovering this paradise here is our guide to the best beaches in the area.

Beautiful though Chia is I feel that the loveliest beaches in Sardinia, all of Italy and very possibly all of Europe are those around Cala Gonone, which is situated on the East Coast of the island. Just have a look at the photos of the best of the beaches in this region (click here to do so), and I think that you'll agree with me that this truly is a little corner of paradise right here on earth.

To tell you the truth I look at the first picture on that page, which is of Goloritzè beach, all through the winter months and I can't tell you how I long for those long summer days and to return to my beloved Sardinia. Why don't you have a look too and let me know if it has the same effect on you :-)
