Be careful: do not speed even if the road is straight, it passes through villages.
Be careful: in the summer, especially during the weekends and on the 15th of August, there can be traffic jams.
Early morning is the best time to drive.
TRAVELLING TO THE BEACHES (by land)
Besides rocks, reefs and islands, the beaches of Chia-Domusdemaria are the ideal place for people who love sand and walking along the shoreline. You will be astonished by the whiteness of the sand and the transparency of the sea.
Some bays, which are partially hidden by small rocky headlands, are hard to reach by car, but the big beaches are all linked to the main road. Access roads are all surfaced and the beaches are well marked with signs. You shouldn't have any problems reaching your "favourite beach": you will only have to choose which one you prefer!
