The most beautiful beaches
From our hotel, it is easy to get to nearby Baia di Chia (Chia Bay) which lies only 16 km away. Named Italy's most beautiful beach because of its white sands surrounded by golden dunes overlooking pristine waters, it is definitely among Sardinia's most stunning stretches. You can head to this wonder via the shuttle transfer that will directly take you to the beach of Chia Su Giudeu: the service is 100% free for guests booking from our website.
Baia di Chia (Chia Bay)
Baia di Chia (Chia Bay) is a place where guests can actively enjoy the sea of Sardinia: canoeing, snorkelling, surfing… or simply a bit of relax on comfortable beds in the shade of straw parasols. The untouched nature and environment give all days unique shows for trekking and nature enthusiasts. Here you can admire a number of uncontaminated creeks such as Su Giudeu, Cala del Morto and Porto Campana, (some of which are reachable on foot only).
3 kilometres away from Chia and approximately 20 minutes from Costa dei Fiori Hotel is one of the 10 most beautiful beaches across Sardinia: Tuerredda Beach. The beach lies in a small creek in front of a picturesque islet and features a clear and ultra-fine sand. Here the colours of sea range between turquoise and clear white the closest you get to the seashore, under the hills covered by the scened Mediterranean scrub.
A truly unique beach where its peculiar sand, along with shell fragments, mirrors on the water a dazzling blue-white spectrum reminding of precious stones. Here you will find sandy dunes embellished by junipers where it is sometimes possible to meet oxen within an authentic and picturesque natural setting. A paradise far away from everything you will be able to reach only by sea, leaving on a rental dinghy from the stunning beach of Tramatzu, or by taking boat trips guided by experienced skippers that will show you other coastal stretches along with a glass of Vermentino (a local wine).
The charm of Southern Sardinia does not just include the beaches a short walk from the Resort. Among caves, archaeological sites and picturesque landscapes, your stay at Costa dei Fiori will meet every need coming from nature and art enthusiasts.
Between the medieval walls, with its monuments still intact, it is possible to marvel at the Roman Amphitheatre and the scenic Pisa tower (the elephant tower).

Nuragic Complex of Barumini
The Nuragic Complex of Barumini is one of the 53 Italian sites appearing in the Unesco’s World Heritage List for its important testimony showing how a prehistoric community managed to use ancient materials in an innovative way. What the Complex was meant to represent has remained a mystery. Some archaeologists maintain that it hid religious temples consisting in the earliest forms of castles whose charm is bound to an era dating back to 3000 years ago.
