DON’T EAT ME PLEASE!

The Mangiabarche lighthouse (named Boat Eater) is one of the most evocative beacon of South Sardinia. Despite its name, its purpose is of course to keep boats from crashing on the dangerous rocks which are hiding just underneath the surface.

In front of the lighthouse and behind the cliffs overhanging the sea, you will find an enchanting beach, where the sea is incredibly transparent and the sun reflecting on the seabed creates thousands shimmering shades of blue.

This lovely spot is on the island of Sant’Antioco, which can easily be reached from the Sardinian South coast by crossing the bridge. To get there follow the coastal road and shortly before reaching the beaches of Calasetta, turn at the sign and follow the unpaved road.

The beach has a small parking, hotels, bars, refreshment and is particularly loved by scuba divers and snorkelers. So don’t forget to bring all your gear to admire the rich seabed of this area!

VISIT MONTE CLARO CITY PARK

If you are spending the day in Cagliari, you might not want to miss a visit to the beautiful and well-kept city park of Monte Claro, which covers an area of 25 hectares. It is located on a hill between the districts of Is Mirrionis and Fonsarda and the municipality of Pirri.

The slopes of the hill Monte Claro have been repopulated with Mediterranean trees and shrubs, which alternate with sunny green meadows. Along the many paths suitable for walking and jogging, among the scents of flowers and aromas of the plants, it is easy to forget that you are just between the busiest thoroughfares of Cagliari, Via Cadello and Via Is Mirrionis.

This extensive and very pleasant area of the city not only represents an important green lung in a very populous and busy area, but is also a lovely meeting point, especially in the summer evenings and during the holidays.

The access to the park is free and the opening hours are from 6:00 am to midnight from May to October and from 7:00 to 21:00 from November to April.

ROMANTIC HIKE TO THE SPARTIVENTO LIGHTHOUSE

 

In Album 2015-09-23

To celebrate the Autumn, which has just arrived, we highly recommend a romantic but easy hike to the old lighthouse at Cape Teulada or Capo Spartivento.

This wonderful starts in Chia. Just follow the road to the beaches and leave your car in Cala Cipolla (last beach), a marvelous spot among sand dunes and juniper trees. The panoramic ascent takes you up to the lighthouse in about 30 minutes. Built in 1866 and sticking out about 60 meters above sea level, the lighthouse of Spartivento has been recently restored and transformed in a luxurious 5-star hotel. Nevertheless, this magical place has lost absolutely nothing of its original beauty. It is well worth a visit for its stunning views and the picture-postcard scenery !

RARE FORMATIONS IN THE CAVE IS ZUDDAS

While in South Sardinia don’t miss a visit to the impressive karst cave of Is Zuddas! It is a true temple of nature where time has created a fairy-tale world. Along the 500 m long route you will discover beautiful and sometimes massive concretions such as stalactites, stalagmites, lava and cannulas. However, the main feature of the cave are the rare and eccentric aragonites, made of very white filaments spreading in all directions, defying the law of gravity.

The cave Is Zuddas is located in the south-west of Sardinia near the village of Santadi. It provides a splendid backdrop created by the incessant action of underground water.

Opening hours: http://www.grotteiszuddas.com/index.php/orari-grotta.html
Address: Località Is Zuddas, Santadi Carbonia -Iglesias 09010 Sardegna – Italia

CALA LUNA – A MAGICAL MUST-SEE ON THE EASTERN COAST

The spectacular Cala Luna beach is a long stretch of fine white sand featuring several stunning caves as well as a transparent and shallow blue sea. It is located north of Arbatax and south of the Gulf of Orosei, a short distance from Cala Gonone, where you will find the mind-blowing caves of Bue Marino.

The beach is easily accessible by boat from Cala Gonone. Adventurous travelers can hike along the road of Golgo (near Baunei) and then take the downhill path to the sea. The reward: sensational views!

This is also a great excursion if you travel to the South and your check-in is late in the afternoon, or if you have a few hours to spend before embarking on the ferry in the North of the island.
