Cala Domestica is a family friendly beach on the Costa Verde (Green Coast) in western Sardinia.
Close to the town of Buggerru, the beach is sheltered by cliffs and sand dunes and there are traces of its former mining activity in the cliffside ruins. You can walk south up the path to the old Spanish Tower (Torre di Cala Domestica), which is a local landmark, for stunning views.
The protected sandy beach has alluring clear waters and the finest light grey sand with idyllic scenery all around. The water stays chest-deep quite a way out, making it ideal for swimming and snorkelling. The beach is patrolled by lifeguards in the main season but there are never enough waves to warrant surfing.
The small beach can be lively during the afternoon Aperol Spritz parties hosted by the beach bar. Brace yourself for loud music and foam cannons! The bar is also the place to rent deckchairs, umbrellas and pedalo boats. You can also book relaxing boat trips while picking up a few drinks and snacks from the bar.
If you want to escape, walk to the north end of the beach and go through a tunnel in the rock to reach a smaller “secret” bay.
There is a fee for car parking in the summer season (June to September) and it gets crowded in July and August so you need to arrive early to guarantee a space.
