    Cala Fighera

    Not many cities in the world have a beach as beautiful as the hidden Cala Fighera, and the extra effort to get there is worth it. East of Cagliari’s city centre, along the Traversa Calamosca road and around the headland from Il Poetto crowds, is the intimate Cala Fighera bay and La Paillotte beach bar. Overlooking a pool and beach it’s easy to see why it’s a popular sunset hangout for Cagliaritani, as you follow a rough track from the bar to a pebbly beach with crystal-clear waters. But be prepared for a variety of natural sights, as among the macchia scrub you might surprise the occasional nudist bather.
