Cala Regina

Cala Regina Beach

is one of the wildest beaches in southern Sardinia. Framed by rocks covered with Mediterranean scrub, it is dominated by a Spanish watchtower, the Cala Regina tower.

It is located 27 kilometers east of Cagliari, in Terramala, in the municipality of Quartu Sant’Elena. It represents an enchanting rocky inlet which, with its accentuated colors, is rather barren. Its walls overlooking the sea, covered by the typical vegetation of the Mediterranean scrub and dominated by a Spanish watchtower, the Cala Regina tower.

The characteristics of the Cala Regina beach give it a rather wild aspect.
The cove is framed by rocks which, among other things, shelter it from the mistral winds.
The beach is surrounded by rocks, while in the center you walk on pebbles of various sizes that reach the sea.

Once in the water, a few steps and the pebbles give way to a medium-grained and amber-colored sand.
In this stretch of coast, the color of the sea that prevails is blue in all its shades, a color that we often find in Sardinia. The seabed, even in this point of the coast, is rather shallow. Its waters are particularly popular with those who practice underwater fishing.

The entire rocky dune and the promontory are covered with thick vegetation typical of the Mediterranean scrub, with a prevalence of pines and eucalyptus.
Elements that together create a picture in strong colors: the green of the vegetation, the brown of the ground and the blue of the sea.

Unlike many other beaches in Sardinia, Cala Regina beach is on average crowded during the summer months. At the entrance there is a car park and a square suitable for campers.

If you want to stop in this cove, in fact, it is better to be equipped as the beach does not have any type of service. The most loyal visitors to this beach are mostly those who love to practice underwater fishing or even those who, more simply, are fond of snorkeling.
