Cala Sa Figu

Overview

A cosy refuge inside a cove

In the unspoilt area of Sarrabus, along the south-easterly coast of Sardinia, stands a jewel of inestimable value: Cala sa Figu, a wonderful bay set among granite rocks covered with vegetation.

Also known as the "Bay of Amphorae", due to the existence of many terracotta fragments from ships sunk in Roman times, the cove is crescent-shaped in the coastal area of Muravera. A perfect combination of sea and nature: it is surrounded by paths immersed in the green of the Mediterranean scrub, which you can ride on your mountain bike or wearing a good pair of hiking shoes.

The sandy shore is made up of small white and grey sand grains mixed with pebbles, and the sea is deep blue, with a sandy bottom and shallow in the middle, rocky on the sides, near the reefs.

Cala sa Figu is the ideal destination if you are looking for a relaxing and peaceful holiday: its wild appearance makes it rarely visited. Perhaps it is precisely its "primordial" aspect that will impress you most.
