As two researchers of the University of Cagliari were diving in the waters of Masua (West Sardinian coast) to keep record of the sea turtles, they discovered by chance a turtle which was struggling for its life: it had a hook stuck in its throat. Fortunately, it was its lucky day !

The turtle was hoisted into the volunteers' boat and then transferred to the Sea Turtle and Cetaceans Rescue Center of Nora (near Pula), where it was operated and then released to the sea at completed recovery.

Visit the Sea Turtle Rescue Center to learn more about the wonderful work these biologists, environmentalists and experienced divers are doing to save the sea and its inhabitants:
Nora is only a 20 min drive away from Chia.

Porto Pino, south western Sardinia…simply magic, isn't that true +Simply Chillout – Holiday Rentals South Sardinia ? Thanks for adding this beautiful photos of a beach near our home,

Originally shared by +Simply Chillout – Holidays in South Sardinia


Are you up for a pic-nick at the beach? Then why not head to Le Dune di Porto Pino , yet another of my favorite beaches in South Sardinia.

This large and wide stretch of beach is in the municipal area of Teulada, near the little harbor Porto Pino. Behind the beach raise amazing 20 to 30 meters high dunes of very fine, white sand, that give an intense blue color to the crystalline waters of this coast. On your way to the beach you will cross the pond of Is Brebeis (which means the sheep), summer abode of numerous migratory birds, such as the elegant pink flamingos.

On the beach you can rent beach umbrellas, sun-loungers and pedal boats, and will also find a few cafes where you can eat simple food. Le Dune is perfect for families with small children, as well as for scuba diving, snorkeling and, on a windy day, even kite-surfing.

From the village of Sant'Anna Arresi follow the road to Porto Pino and shortly before arriving there, follow the sign to the left for the dirt-track road to Le Dune and drive until you reach the large car park. From this point you have to continue on foot. Take the bridge over a small channel, and continue for about 300 meters along a path to the beach.

The beach Le Dune is located within the military zone of Capo Teulada; for this reason the Ministry of Defence only grants access to the beach during the summer months.

Top 10 Beaches in South Western Sardinia –

Sardinia Cow Beach

Have you ever seen cows soaking up the sun on one of Sardinia’s best beaches…

Have you ever seen cows soaking up the sun on one of Sardinia’s best beaches?

The beach in the following video is the so called ‚Cow Beach‘, found on the coast between Chia and Teulada, on southwestern Sardinia.

You can view its location on our ‚Top 10 Beaches in South Western Sardinia‚ article and it is here that you can bump into a half dozen cows soaking up the sun in total tranquillity and relax during the off-season! We’ve been driving along this road all year round, saw it in all its majestic splendor and its breathtaking charm every month of the year, and trust us, it really is a spectacular road.

Every now and then something catches your eyes and you cannot but stop and think how beautiful nature is and how different life can be, when see from another point of view. Here you see cows doing what YOU would love to do, and that tells you a little bit about how fabulous Sardinia is: a place like no other.

Have you ever seen anything similar? If so, where?

Top 10 Strände im Südwesten Sardiniens

  It’s not an easy task to name the top 10 beaches in south western Sardinia. There are way more than that! We’ll give you a rough guide, so you can pick up a different one every day (and still miss out on the others if you don’t stay more than 10 days…). They are […]

Turredda Beach, Teulada



Set about 15 minutes by car from Casa Teulada, Tuerredda Beach is probably the most famous beach of south western Sardinia. Due to its proximity to Chia and the hordes of holiday makers flocking there in the summer, Tuerredda beach may get a bit ‚overcrowded‘ during the peak summer months.

Nevertheless, the beach is always breathtaking and you can easily spot a place all to yourself, given its size.

South western Sardinia still retains its authentic flair, which makes it so inviting and irresistible to those seeking a unique holiday destination. This means many beaches are still intact and local municipalities hardly grant temporary permissions to open up anything on the coast. That said, a few exceptions are made from mid June to mid September, when a few beaches host cafés, stands and restaurants.

So you can choose whether you want to go to a ‚rustic‘ or  ‚furnished‘ beach!

Tuerredda Beach Restaurant

Open roughly between mid June and mid September, this restaurant is ‚right on the beach‘, meaning you can sit down after a fantastic swim  and sample some delicious dishes. It can get a bit crowded around lunchtime, but it can be an absolute delight for dinner! Take a look at the short video we shot while there in August:

Menu is essential, with a yummy choice of entrées, seafood pasta dishes and second courses. Seafood is of course sovereign and as such a bit pricey too. What can you ask for with such a location? 😉
