MY BEACH IN SOUTH SARDINIA

This is Tuerredda Beach on the south western coast of Sardinia, near Teulada. Some travelers like to call it “Mauritius in the Med”, but I prefer to simply call it “my beach”. When I was a child I used to come here with my family and already back then this mind-blowing spot of natural beauty was my favorite in all South Sardinia.

Still today Tuerredda has not changed and continues to play its magic on visitors … Its fascination has definitely deeply touched my soul.. and that’s why I continue to come here, year after year, almost like a pilgrim.

Here the sand is fine and white, the water incredibly transparent, nature pristine. If you prefer, come in the evening to discover all its glamour!

SPECTACULAR BIRD LIFE IN SOUTH SARDINIA

The Parco Molentargius-Saline located between Cagliari and Quartu is one of the most important sites in Europe for the staging, wintering and breeding of numerous wading bird species. A common sight is the pink flamingo, which has been nesting here since 1993. Ponds are also home to the black-winged stilt, the common water hen, the marsh harrier and the Eurasian wigeon, as well as the extremely rare purple heron, great egret and cattle egret, the little egret, the mallard and several species of ducks.

Birdwatchers can admire spectacular views such as the flight of the pink flamingos at sunset or the mating dance of the black-winged stilt.

Join one of the guided tours to observe the park’s plant and animal life! The park includes an area of green parkland with fitness trails and other paths across a beautiful and precious wetland habitat. We recommend to discover the area in push-bike, which you can rent at the entrance, in the “Sali Scelti” building.

If you particularly love flamingos, come visit in May when you can observe an estimated 10,000 breeding pairs. What a show!

Opening hours:
– from 16 October to 31 March, from 07.00 to 18:00.
– From 1 April to 16 October, from 06.30 to 21.00

SO MANY IMPRESSIONS IN ONE PLACE

What to do on a grey winter day? My suggestion is to go to the amazing market of San Benedetto in the center of Cagliari. This experience is a feast for all senses! I never can get enough of the vibrant colors and wonderful smells of all the delicious food gracefully put on display.

For me this place is magic – I recommend it to anyone keen to learn about the Sardinian culture and its food. I promise, you won’t be disappointed. Ah, don’t forget! On the way out, buy some freshly fried calamaris. They are so yum!

The best time to visit this fantastic market is before 10:00 am, from Monday to Thursday. The market is located in Via Francesco Cocco Ortu and is open daily until 13.00. There are plenty of parking lots nearby. Enjoy!
