Cala de S’IllixiA beach for the soul: Cala de S’Illixi is an extensive yet still hidden bay. Flanked by a mighty, green-veined mountain behind the fragrant maquis, the power of the Sardinian east coast is at its most apparent here. The bay is never crowded, since many shy away from the rather adventurous journey there over the steep, bumpy dirt track (SP97). Visitors park on a hill on a tight bend, and Cala de S’Illixi is signposted from here, along with Cala Su Figu. A trail through the maquis and a little climb leads directly to this breathtaking secret.
Cala Su FiguA little dream. Cala Su Figu is a tiny, moon-shaped bay that neighbours Cala de S’Illixi. Here is the perfect place for snorkelling between rugged rocks or simply enjoying the tranquillity of a beach that you might even have all to yourself. Access to the bay as with Cala de S’Illixi.
Location and surroundings
Beaches in detail
Feraxi - San Priamo
Feraxi beach in Muravera is a nice, 3 km long sandy beach away from the masses. The sea is easily accessible and the water is crystal clear. The dunes are covered with typical vegetation. There is parking, a kiosk and a beach bar. The beach is good for snorkelling, as the clear water is rich in fish.
Capo Ferrato lies secluded and almost isolated on the north end of Costa Rei. It offers superb little bays for those seeking privacy. As they are a little rocky, these beaches are less suitable for children. On the north end of the cape lie the natural pools of Feraxi and Colostrai, home to typical marsh wildlife.
Porto Pirastu - Capo Ferrato
Small bay framed by flat rocks at the northern end of Costa Rei. Grey sand and pebble beach, less suitable for children. A pine forest behind the beach offers shade from the midday sun.
The Costa Rei beach is about 8 km long and is characterized by its fine white to yellow sand and crystalline water. Worth mentioning is the characteristic granite rock Scoglio di Peppino. The Costa Rei beach was voted the fifth most beautiful in the world in the Lonely Planet.
