Sardinia, an autonomous region of Italy and the second largest island in the Mediterranean, is home to some of the most beautiful and tucked-away beaches in the world. If white sand, turquoise water, verdant backdrops, and active adventure are your thing, we’ve got the spot for you.
At the very south of the island, set aside from the larger beaches, is a 150-meter crescent of perfection — a white-sand beach with a small forest backdrop of pine and juniper trees and aquamarine waters that you’ll never want to leave. Spiaggia di Cala Cipolla (spiaggia means beach), is one of the best snorkeling spots in all of Southern Sardinia. It attracts swimmers, sunbathers, cliff jumpers, and surfers (although it’s a fickle beach break that doesn’t always have perfect surf).
