The coasts are wet by a limpid sea with colours like intense azure or emerald green ,this made Chia one of the most famous seaside resort of Sardinia. The nature is still uncontaminated, it also alternates  high and rocky promontories with low and sandy shores. To know its beauties....

Let's start our tour from the east to the west

 

The first islet that we meet is  "Su Cardolinu",that is connected to the beach by a sand strip, it's famous because of archeological excavation that allowed to discover a  Tophet  (an altar) of ancient city Bithia. An other name of this islet is  "Isula Manna".

You can reach the beach of Isula Manna only if you go on foot ,take a look to the map!

Go along the coast and you will find a small bay that is also knowed as "Il Porticciolo" ("old little seaport",because of the fishermen used to go there for their work many years ago).

 

 

 

 

 

 

The tower's promontory gives a breathless panorama and  separates "Il Porticciolo" from another beautiful beach .....         

... named "Sa Colonia" that stretches for about 1 Km to its end called " Monte Cogoni".

 

In the middle of the beach,behind the strand, it's possible to visit some graves of the ancient Bithia.

  The tower

The tower has Spanish origins and it dates back to the 17th century. It's the symbol of Chia and it's possible to see it from every beach. The tower is lighted at night and this sight is very evocative.             The tower
