Costa Rei is located on Sardinia's southern coast, approximately 50 kilometres from the capital city of Cagliari. This stretch of coast is renowned for its crystal clear water, golden sands and long beaches. It also has a lake system that forms a nature reserve for rare avian species. Costa Rei is bordered by the bays of Sant'Elmo to the south, and to the north by Capo Ferrato, a nature reserve where no construction is allowed. The beauty of Costa Rei's captivating landscape is in every respect the equal of Costa Smeralda's, for here coves and long sandy beaches abound, set off by rolling hills with intensely green Mediterranean vegetation and imposing granite cliffs.
Costa Rei is the ideal place for a relaxing beach holiday Costa Rei's long sandy beaches offer rest and relaxation of the highest order. For those who like their vacations more active, surfboards, scuba diving courses and rental motorboats are all readily available, while restaurants and shopping are only a stone's throw away.
And even if you want to spend all your time at the beach, there's plenty to do: kid's pony rides at a riding school, exursions to nearby Villasimius, Capo Ferrato and the Flumendosa river valley, or from Arbatax to Cala Gonone via motor boat. Away from the beach, there's excellent shopping in Costa Rei's many boutiques, in Muravera or in Cagliari.
For Night life you can choose between the more crowded Villasimius but also the summer evening in Costa Rei is anything but dull. Teenagers gather on the Piazzetta, children leap about on trampolines, ride the carousel or take paddleboat rides. Or you might just want to dine in a beachfront restaurant with a view of the sea and revel in the delights of Sardinian cuisine.
Imagine evergreen countryside, a crystalline turquoise-blue sea, healthy and unpolluted air, and, perhaps like nowhere else in the world, you have Castiadas. This is not an exaggeration: there are more than 20km of coast, wonderful beaches and densely green landscapes, where a dazzling azure sea washes over vast stretches of immaculate fine sand.
The large number of Castiadas's beaches vary in colour and form from the powder-like, white sand at Cala Pira, Monte Turno and Sant'Elmo to the more compacted golden sand at Cala Sinzias, Cala Marina, Villa Rey and Santa Giusta.
A genuine paradise: From the deep waters covered thickly with posidonia lawns, to the turquoise and emerald-green shallows, it is one of the most splendid seas in the world.
Castiadas is not only about its sea, however. As well as the miles and miles of splendid coastline, the still virginal countryside is an equally rich inheritance, sufficient to merit a place among the three “palmares” communities, areas where the vegetation has remained unspoilt as mother nature left it: Passing through the “Seven Brothers” chain of mountains, for example, via Minni Minni in the direction of Sa Callazziga, one cannot but be amazed at the rocks carved out by the rain and wind and awash with junipers and strawberry trees, raw natural beauty, giving the impression that time has stood still here.
These forests, a regular destination for many tourists, are truly marvellous, with their enormous, undefiled holm-oaks, wonderfully scented junipers twisted with age, strawberry trees blossoming with white berries, the different fragrances of other native species such as myrtle, rosemary, rock rose and the unmistakable shades of white and pink oleanders.
From the highest point in the Minni Minni locality, reached on a guided tour, mountain bike or even on foot, it is possible to see the whole of Castiadas and a large part of the Villasimius coast.
A flourishing wild animal life has found its ideal context here.
Its main representatines are ravens, wild boar (both of these present in ever greater numbers), golden eagles, imperial ravens, wild cats, martens, foxes, wood pigeons and red woodpeckers, though there are many others.
The various springs and streams present in the mountains make it possible for these floral and faunal elements to survive despite long periods of drought.
