The unspoilt landscape of the Chia Bay offers a real breathtaking natural spectacle. Its beauty consists in the sand dunes, shaped by the wind, the pure ,knee-high waters during low tide times, its white sandy beach, and the ponds alongside the coast, inhabited by pink flamingos. All of this makes this south-west sardinian area as a wonderful spectacle to enjoy.
As Nora, also the Chia Bay originated from the ancient cities: during its carthaginian time its name was Bithia, whose relics are, unfortunately just few , stored and displayed by the Cagliari Archeological Museum and in the Domus De Maria one. The Is Cannonerisi holm oak forest is only ten minutes away from Domus De Maria, by car; here sardinian deers, fallow deers and boars can be seen.
We recommend visiting also the nearby Tuerredda beach, which is considered as one of the most beautiful in Sardinia, the Piscinni one and the Malfatano harbour which can all be reached by the coastal road which connects Chia to Teulada.
