Additional Location Information
Calasetta is a fishermen’s village located on the Island of Sant’Antioco, south west Sardinia. The Island is linked by a bridge to main Island Sardinia, so it’s easy to drive to Calasetta coming from Cagliari Elmas International Airport (95 km away), Cagliari Harbour or elsewhere in Sardinia.
The village of Calasetta was founded in 1770 by colonist from Genoese origin that were leaving the island of Tabarka in Tunisia, where they stayed for almost two centuries.
All the houses are located in the very center or a stone throw away from the village center, not far from the Savoy Tower the port and the main square.
The village is inhabited all year around by 2500 people and lives mainly on fishing, agriculture, sailing and tourism.
The port of Calasetta developed thanks to the wine trade and alongside with commerce on products from tuna fishing. The harbor is now home to many fishing boats and sailboats, particularly the typical wooden boat with square sail, so-called “Latin”.
You can walk to the port to find fresh fish in the late morning when fishermen came back from sailing or to rent a rubber dinghy to sail around. You can also go to the ferry terminal and ship to San Pietro Island for dinner and enjoy a walk in the nice small town of Carloforte.
On wednesday morning a market take place at the port, you can buy fresh vegetables, fruits, typical cheese, bread and souvenirs.
At night the harbor promenade is alive with stalls of local products and African and Oriental clothes for a walk and a funny and cheap shopping.
All the Island is worth to visit and discover. The unspoiled landscape, the easy-going local people, the fabulous traditional food and the island’s simple lifestyle all combine to relax the visitor’s mind and delight the senses. Emeraldine sea and white beaches, cliffs, and amazing landscapes visible both by land as by sea make the beaches perfect for sunbathing, dive and enjoy.
Sottotorre beach is the closest to the village. Its white sand and shallow water are perfect as children playground and swimming pool. Surrounded by the cliffs, ones that prefer rocks can swim and go snorkeling around.There is a bar/restaurant that provides showers and toilettes. A dinner on the beach is recommended. Atmosphere and nice foods are worth to try. Sottotorre beach is sheltered from the winds of the east, south-west and south and is instead exposed to the mistral wind. It faces San Pietro Island and is the perfect location to admire the sunset.
Salina Beach is one kilometer away from the village. Part of the beach is equipped with umbrellas and sunbeds and there is a kiosk where you can find ice cream and drinks and eat sandwiches and salads.The beach is surrounded by white sand dunes and pinewood.Just behind the beach there is a saline where flamingos and other beautiful migratory wading birds live.
Spiaggia grande is surrounded and sheltered by dunes and an ancient pine and juniper wood. Emeraldine water, white and soft sand allow along the sea walking.The beach is partially provided with sun umbrella and armchair and a kiosk selling food and beverage. When a strong Mistral wind blows the beach becomes a magical place for lovers of windsurfing and kite surfers.
The beach terminates at the Punta Tonnara (the cape takes its name from the ancient Tuna fish working plant).
The romantic lighthouse of Mangiabarche is one of the symbols of Calasetta. It is located less than half a mile from the coast, just off the tip of the Cape of the Ancient Tonnara. At sunset Mangiabarche gives its best and, in the storms it becomes a place full of charm and fascination.You can bike there or drive and find a large parking area at walking distance to the cove in front of Mangiabarche, where you can swim and dive looking to the lighthouse.
