Chia is located near Forte Village, about a 12-minute drive from the resort. On the ride to Chia, you’ll take Viale delle Nereidi to Strada Statale 195 Sulcitana and continue for 6 kilometres before turning into Viale Scolopi and then Viale Monti.
Also called Baia di Chia, Chia forms part of the coast of southern Sardinia. It is a commune located in Domus de Maria, in the Province of Cagliari.
Many Forte Village guests like to make the short trip to the lovely village to see some of its intriguing sites. The journey in itself is wonderful as you’ll be treated to mesmerising scenery that’s characteristic of Sardinia.
Popular places to visit in Chia include Ali del Mare, Campana Dune, Maneggio di Giancarlo Cabras, and Arveskida Beach, among others.
Ali del Mare is a beautiful, clean beach where tourists love to lazy about in the sun or enjoy various water sports. The friendly locals will make you feel welcome, and the place has a reasonable parking space. You’ll enjoy the soft, white sands, and crystal-clear, blue sea as you get a soothing Sardinian tan. You’ll easily find sunbeds for hire and a few cafés run by friendly natives. It is common to find kiosks selling delicious salads and toasted sandwiches. Additionally, you could hire a rib boat for some water fun, go surfing, or diving. Renting a surfboard isn’t expensive and you’ll find the renter ready to help you with one or two trips. You might even spot a world champion kite boarder surfing beside you.
Campana Dune consists of two beaches stretching some 5 kilometres of immaculate white sands. It has a major shoreline separated from a smaller cove by a small rocky headland. Lifeguards are readily available to get into action and there are bars and kiosks where you can grab a bite to eat or something nice to drink. Also, spots where you’ll find umbrellas and beach chairs for hire.
A definite advantage Campana Dune has over other beaches in the area, are the clearly delineated and signposted areas of the inshore waters for swimmers and other water-sports aficionados. This makes it easy for everyone to share the water without fear of being disturbed by others doing some other sport. The beach slopes gently to the sea, making a shallow enough area for the little ones and non-swimmers to enjoy the water safely.
Campana Dune is the third of the four big beaches of Costa del Sud, which are strung together like pearls on a chain. The others are Monte Gogoni, Sa Colonia and Campana.
Experienced and beginner riders alike will not be disappointed with a visit to this stable. As a beginner, you might want to take a gentle walk to see the amazing views around Chia and as an experienced rider, feel free to gallop at full speed on the mountains and on the beach, relishing the wind as you enjoy scenic views.
