The mysterious bay -a myth in the island of Sant'Antico-
Cala Sapone is a very small beach located on the island of Sant'Antioco, it is very popular in the summer season both by families and by young people because it can satisfy all tastes. Its name is due to the conquest of the abyss by the Phoenician god Baal, after facing the god Yam to obtain the throne, Baal built his palace on Mount Saphon. From that moment it would be remembered by all as Baal Saphon, the name of the beach that has not taken the name of Cala Sapone. The sand is grainy, on the shore you can admire the fantastic pink coral, characteristic of this place. If you are adventurous you can go on the rocks to the right of the beach to find a corner of peace away from other swimmers. Next to the beach, on the left side, there is a camping where you can stay in bungalows or caravans, it also offers a very small private beach reserved for guests of the camping, called Spiaggia Dei Francesi (French's beach). At lunch or dinner you can taste typical Sardinian dishes in the Mario and Pinella kiosk, renowned for its fried fish.
In the cliffs situated on the right side of the beach you can sunbathe on the famous platform from which young people compete for the most original dive, while in the right-hand cliff, passing through the water, you can reach the Golfetto. The Golfetto is an inlet on which to sunbathe, dive and play the guitar.
Athletic people know the Platform and the Golfetto very well as these two points of reference are the departure and the arrival of the Travesata: a regenerating swim that crosses the bay and that will give you the opportunity to admire its sea floor.
