Cala Domestica: between cliffs and mines
Located on the South-Western coast, set among white limestone cliffs, the inlet of Cala Domestica is considered one of the most beautiful and captivating beaches in South-Western Sardinia.
Located on the shore, between Buggerru, about 2 km away, and Masua, Cala Domestica is at the end of a deep inlet, and it is surrounded by massive cliffs that shelter it. A valley that stretches all the way to the sea.
Approximately 200 meters long, it is dominated by the tower of the same name, which dates back to the 17th century. Moreover, you can still find traces of an ancient mining village of the beginning of the 20th century. In fact, the railroad used to load and transport minerals onto the ships was right here in Cala Domestica. Moreover, during World War II, this was a German naval base. Beyond the main beach, if you take the road along the cliff and go through the gallery dug in the rock, you will reach Caletta, a small and secluded beach.
The sand is golden colored and the water boasts hues from green to blue: Cala Domestica is a must-see for all who decide to travel to the Sulcis Iglesiente.
At Cala Domestica you will also find a parking lot, facilities and several food options.
