Cala Pira beach (Spiaggia di Cala Pira) is located between the villages of Villasimius and Sant’elmo. This beach is one of the more popular spots in the Costa Rei area, and usually gets crowded in August but less so in September. Cala Pira beach is located in between two hills, and is sheltered from the wind.
The beach is 500 meters long, offering panoramic views of Isola Serpentara, situated 5 kilometers off the coast, and the recently restored Torre di Cala Pira. Many sailboats come to this bay to lower the anchors and spend the day.
Shallow blue waters, where fish come near the shore, make Cala Pira a good snorkelling or canoeing spot and an ideal playground for children. The nearby car parking costs approximately 5 Euros for the day. The area of Villasimius offers a full range of hotels, apartments and rental villas to choose from.
