BLUFAN – THRILLS AT THE WATER-PARK

Yes, the beach is great for relaxing! But if you have young children, you might be reminded that holidays are also about action and lots of fun. So why not head out to the Blue Fan Waterpark and spend a refreshing and exciting day with the family?

Have you ever heard about the Multitrack Cronor Race or the Black Hole PsicoLightMusic? Well, it’s perhaps time to give it a try! Feel like Indiana Jones in the Big River or get an adrenaline kick in the Kamikaze Drop, just to name a few attractions. You might even want to join the “Foam Party” in the wave pool or … perhaps better relax in the whirlpool and enjoy the energizing jet of the waterfall.

The water-park is located between Sarroch and Pula, at km 24.6 of the State Road (SS 195). It is open in the summer from 9:30-10:00 am to 6:30 pm. www.blufan.net

AN UNFORGETTABLE KAYAK TOUR

Take an unforgettable kayak tour to explore the very southern coast of Sardinia!

The tour starts at the small beach of Pinus Village (or Cala Marina) just in front of Eden Rock. From there, you will proceed towards  the famous caves that characterize the coast and, thanks to your kayak you will venture inside to discover hidden coves.

After a short break, you will continue to paddle to another corner of paradise: you are in Chia, in front of the island of Su Cardolino, some almost deserted coves and the imposing tower of Chia.

This excursion is suitable for everyone, even for children from 6 years old. It can be booked online at Sardeo.com:

SNORKELING IN CHIA BAY

With its 1800 kilometers of coastline, Sardinia is a paradise for those who love diving and snorkeling. In its seabed you can discover ship and aircraft wrecks as well as archaeological finds, which now seem like they always belonged to that world.

If you are staying in South West Sardinia we recommend the Chia Bay, a golden dream beach with stunning crystal clear waters and a rich underwater world. The high sandy dunes, the charming islet of Su Giudeu just in front and a beautiful beach… What else could you ask for? Welcome to paradise!
