Sardinia, with its quintessential Mediterranean beauty, is mainly loved for swimming, boating, windsurfing, hiking, climbing, and camping, with coastal areas tending to become over touristed especially in the warmest month, August.

The inner life of the island away from the tourist spots takes longer to appreciate and requires you to peel away the layers of apparent Italianization. After all, the ancient Nuragic civilization of Sardinia of ca. 1500 BC, whose stone monuments still dot the land, predates even the Etruscan civilization in mainland Italy by several hundred years.

The beach situated near the Spanish Tower of Barì is part of the long Marina di Bari Sardo and has a base made up of very coarse, multicoloured sand and rock-cliffs near the tower. It is around 8 kilometres in length and 100 metres wide, and is divided into two parts by the rocky promontory on which the tower rises. A part of the beach is made up of coarse sand, like grains of rice, slightly ochre in colour, while the other part is made up of round pebbles.

The beach is sunny right up to sunset, and the sea is always calm with little wind. The surroundings are magnificent. Its waters are of an intense changing blue due to the plays of light created by the sun reflected on the sandy seabed. As it is windy, it is the ideal spot for surfers and is much loved by scuba fishing enthusiasts.

It is easily reached along the panoramic SS 125 main road, turning off towards the Tower. The beach is reached after around 4 kilometres. The beach is characterised by shallow waters which deepen quickly: it is therefore necessary to be vigilant when children are at play in the water.

The beach has many facilities: it has a large car park, a hotel, campsite, cafe, and other restaurant areas. The area has pubs and clubs where the nightlife is particularly lively. It is possible to rent beach umbrellas, sun-loungers and pedal boats.

Barì Sardo is a farming village on the basalt plateau of Teccu 'e Su Crastu, surrounded by rolling hills clothed in vineyards and fruit orchards. The area bears several traces of its ancient settlers, including the nuraghe Sellersu and the domus de janas (chamber tombs) of Pizzu'e Monti and Funtana Su Rettore, on the Su Pranu hills. The old town centre still has a number of the old rural houses and farmsteads, plus Spanish towers, ancient sheep pens and villas.

The village is famous for its hand-weaving traditions: carpets, tapestries, blankets and linen fabrics. The religious festivals dedicated to the Beata Vergine di Monserrato and to Saints Michele and Girolamo, with their street processions are especially fascinating. Both festivals are held in September; make sure you also visit the parish church of Nostra Signora di Monserrato, in the heart of town. The second Sunday of July the Festival de Su Nenneri is held, to celebrate San Giovanni Battista.

Barisardo, Barì till Italy's unification, originated from the joining of four ancient villages that sprung up around the rural churches of Sant'Antine, S. Leonardo, S. Cecilia and S. Susanna, identified still today with the villages four main neighbourhoods.

Snuggled between the hills of Su pranu, Pitzu e Monte and the plateau of Teccu, Barisardo presents a favourable climatic situation and a countryside characterised by century old olive and almond trees and Mediterranean bush. Several domus de janas and many nuraghi, some of them in good condition are among the monuments to see in the surroundings.

The 10-km-long littoral begins in the area called Cea and continues at Teccu with a series of basalt rock promontories, result of the eruption of an ancient volcano whose mouth is on the plateau itself.

The coast, whose splendid reefs are the joy of deep-water divers, opens onto long strips of sand held together by the small rock on which the tower of Barisardo stands (Turri). Shady pine groves, wide patches of Mediterranean bush and rows of eucalyptus, with a wealth of typical local fauna and flora, outline the beaches up to the wetlands of Bau Eni and Tramalitzia, bordering with Cardedu's territory.

Inside the village, the parish church, built between 1600 and 1700, is well worth a visit for its precious stairway with balustrade of finely inlaid polychrome marble and its baroque steeple that dominates the whole village. To the left of the church, is the interesting oratory of the Rosario Confraternity, which dates back to the 17th century and now in need of renovation.

Sardinia is constituted by the homonymous island (after Sicily, the second biggest of the Mediterranean), and by numerous minor islands (San Pietro, Sant'Antioco, Mal di Ventre, Asinara, Isola Piana, Caprera, La Maddalena, Spargi, Budelli, Razzoli, Santa Maria, Tavolara, Molara, Serpentara e Isola dei Cavoli), for a global expansion of 24.090 kilometers square. The population is of over 1,600,000 inhabitants. The regional capital is Cagliari. From 2005 provinces are doubled: from four to eight.

Sardinia, is estimated to be old around 600 millions of years ( it emerged in the Carboniferous: hundreds millions years ago it was in strictly contact with France and Spain, before to carry out a translation with the neighbouring Corse) and boasts a signal stability in its structure: its volcanoes are extincted from millions years.

It can't be said the same about the hydrological viewpoint, a problem that characterizes as well cities like Cagliari: uncountable are the underground caverns of uncommon sizes. The caves in the island are among the most beautiful and ancient in Italy and in Europe: it is possible to find some of these in the interior and along the coasts alike ( some are reachable only by sea, and some others are visitable only by rigged and capable speleologists).

An other phenomenon that involves particularly Sardinia is the erosion, caused by the natural composition of its rocks and by the strong action conducted by the dominant winds. On the island, many “green lungs” can be found, where you can spend part of your time. The many trails offer to visitors the chance to be walked on foot, horseback, mountain bike or n all-terrain vehicles.

From north to south Sardinia, the natural repertoire is extremely diverse and full of surprises.
It easily happens to find rivers, waterfalls and springs or to come across ancient archaeological remains as Nuraghi, Tombs of the Giants or Domus de Janas.

In the Barbagie there is only an embarrassment of riches if you want to stop in the wooded areas. Among the most beautiful, we mention those of Montarbu (it is for a good part in the area of Seui, which borders on the Ogliastra), Arase (near Aritzo) and Uatzu (between Belvì and Tonara) that all belong to the Azienda Foreste Regionali (Regional Forests Corporation), except the state-owned forest of Montes (area of Orgosolo). Very fascinating are also the woods on the mountains between Seulo and Sadali, furrowed by canyons.

In the Supramonte of Orgosolo, in the Badde Tureddu locality, we suggest to visit some centuries-old evergreen oaks, which grow near a stream: they are important amenities for tourists. Real natural monuments which deserve conservation and respect.

The coastal extension has been calculated in 1.380 km (almost 1.900 km if we include the minor islands: San Pietro, Sant'Antioco, Mal di Ventre, Asinara, Isola Piana, Caprera, La Maddalena, Spargi, Budelli, Razzoli, Santa Maria, Tavolara, Molara, Serpentara and the Isola dei Cavoli).

Insularity has its disadvantages (people can travel only by plane or ship) but it has some advantages as well, like for example the chance to have easily preserved an environment in large part intact. In order to get to know the most fascinating coasts of Sardinia, we suggest you to hire a boat or to take part to the many guided tours.

Your holidays in Sardinia represent a continuous discovery: it is often said that “the island almost seems a continent”. Traveling through its territory, you will be enchanted by the environment which greatly varies from one area to another, especially from the coast to the hinterland.

North to South you will see a variety of cities and villages, each one with its own traditions, its crafts, its enogastronomy, its own architecture and museums: the purest soul of Sardinia lies in these diversities and in its strong identity. Stopping over only to the coasts would be reductive, as the different sea, rivers and lakes will offer you great surprises everywhere in the island.

You can find yourself suddenly in front of them, like some beautiful surprises. Archeology and history let themselves be admired by the most curious visitors, as a sign of the many traces left by the man on the coasts as well as in the hinterland. Thanks to its many natural settings, Sardinia is also the perfect place for many extreme sports such as surfing, climbing, diving, hiking or mountain biking.

Goloritzè cove is one of the most beautiful Mediterranean islands for the crystal clear blue water caused by underwater springs. The beach has white stones mixed to sand, and it offers an amazing view of the bow that gets down into the water and the Punta Goloritzè peak.

The beach is dominated by an calcareous rise, the Caroddi mountain, which is ideal for freeclimbing. The shallowness of this crystal clear water is ideal for children who can play on the shore peacefully. This graceful landscape with its green vegetation and its blue crystal water, has been chosen by the queen-hawk for living.

It is possible to go on trip by boat leaving Cala Gonone and Santa Maria Navarrese. Also you can go on foot passing through a trekking path that goes across the Supramonte of Baunei. It is only for professional people.

Sea, flat, hill or mountain? In Ogliastra there is all this, you have only to decide where do you want to go. It is not possible to reach very high altitudes (any mountain reaches the 1900 meters) but there is the possibility to appreciate a chilling fresh even in the midsummer, at least in some areas of the island.

We suggest an hike on the mighty top of the Punta la Marmora (1834 meters): from there, when north-westerly, it is possible to contemplate the island from coast to coast getting lost in the tender beauty of the sunrise or of the sunset. Provided that you will be rigged and accompanied by experts.

Punta la Marmora is the highest summit of the mountainous groups of Sardinia (Gennargentu, Supramonte, Limbara, Marghine, Goceano, Serpeddì, Sette Fratelli, Sarrabus). The riliefs of Broncu Spina (1829 meters), Su Sciusciau (1823 meters) and Punta Flores prove to be slightly lower.

The morphological structure changes from zone to zone. The most diffuse rocks in Sardinia are the granite, the basalt, the trachyte and the travertines. The sea is one between the most beautiful in the world, even though it can not extol the coral reef and the multicolored fishes of the exotic countries.

But forests and woods, which extension is unfortunately sharply decreased, in regard to some centuries ago, still preserve wonderful surprises as for example natural monuments like the olivaceous of Luras (Gallura: it is more than three thousand years old and it is the most ancient in Europe) or the “fratello” (“brother”) of Santa Maria Navarrese (only thousand years old, the last sample of a forest now a day disappeared in the sea resort of the Ogliastra).

Otherwise the evergreen oak of Orgosolo and Seui (Barbagie), or, the yew-tree too, which tempts time in the gully of the Gorroppu (side of Urzulei, in Ogliastra). Authentic treasures of a gentle nature partially uncontaminated, witness to a longeval and proud Sardinia.

You could smell the fragrance of the Mediterranean maquis, during some periods of the year they are particularly strong almost exhilarating. In Sardinia by some international companies have been identified officinal plants, which have a huge importance in the medical and pharmaceutical domain.
