... sailing excursion Bosa south.
BOSA MARINA - is the sandy beach for families with children. Because it is easy to reach, protected from excessive waves by a lagoon arm and has a wide sandy beach. Accordingly, it is very well attended.
PORTO ALABE - There are various different beach sections in Porto Alabe. Starting at Noesala, the beach is a total of 2km long!
TORRE COLUMBARGIA - To reach on foot from Porto Alabe by walking over the plateau at the end of the village to the Torre Columbargia. The hike takes about 30 to 40 minutes. On the way you can rest at the SPIAGGIA S'UMBRA - which is well attended in high season, but is otherwise quiet and wonderfully located.
CORONA NIEDDA - At about 1 NM from the coast, along Tresnuraghes, there is a sea strewn with rocks and islets. It is the "Corona Niedda" an archipelago of volcanic origin who won with its largest island, about 40 m high. Itis a diving spot.
FOGHE - This cliff, which faces several islets at the mouth of the Rio Mannu, is surmounted by a perched tower at 70 m above sea level. The Torre Foghe remained in operation until 1842.
... sailing excursion Bosa north.
CANE MALU - is not properly a beach, it’s a natural pool carved by nature in the white trachyte of Bosa, a special place, very loved by local people. Great dives in its turquoise water.
CALA E MORO - The cove is protected by high hills of sedimentary rock surmounted by a dense Mediterranean scrub. Enchanting the work
that the erosive action of the sea has done on the promontory. The beautiful sea has a mainly rocky seabed with splendid crystalline transparencies. It has a color between emerald green
and blue, due of light and reflections from the sun rays.
CALA RAPINA - The evocative name of the cove seems to derive from the incursions of the Saracen pirates, who from here tried to enter the hinterland, taking advantage of the strategic position, probably for a surprise attack. Cala Rapina is always deserted, and is therefore a perfect place to enjoy the beauty of the pristine landscapes of the coast.
CUMPULTITTU - Small bay with beautiful fine sand located between the tufa rocks. Approx. 6km towards Alghero with parking on the street. Easy descent on foot approx. 10-15 minutes.
TORRE ARGENTINA - his beach consists of a series of bays of a few hundred meters each. Facing south, they all offer views of Isola de Sas Crabas, or “The Island of the Goats”, a small rocky island situated just 50 meters off the coast. The beaches have coarse sands with pebbles of various sizes, mostly of a pinkish and reddish color. The surrounding flat rocks give this area almost a lunar quality.
PORTO MANAGU - is a beautiful cove with a large rock that dominates it. The best way to reach the cove is certainly the sea. The green and transparent water makes it the ideal place for scuba diving lovers. The area is sheltered from the wind so the sea is always calm and for this reason it is also a safe haven for small boats.
CAPO MARRARGIU - Great little pebble and stone bays with crystal clear turquoise water that change to a bright dark blue at low points. The griffon vulture “Grifone”, which is unique to Sardinia, lives on the cliffs above. The bays can only be reached via very steep paths across the maquis and, naturally by boat.
What about out of the water?
There are sheer cliffs and white beaches. Like in Capo Caccia, where enormous massifs plunge into the sea, their walls dotted with caves high up in the air and under the sea, like those of Nereo, the largest in Europe, and Nettuno, where over 600 steps and a half- kilometre walk will take you to an underwater lake with enormous stalactites.
In Tavolara and Capo Coda Cavallo, you will explore one of the most spellbinding stretches of sea in the Mediterranean. Meanwhile, in the natural heritage of the Asinara National Park, you will experience the mysterious charm of a century of isolation, during which the island was first a ‘quarantine station’, then a prisoner-of-war camp and lastly a maximum security prison, up until the time when the park was established.
Not only sea but also a hinterland with wetlands. The Lagoon of Calich, for example, is a vital lung for wildlife in the Park of Porto Conte - Capo Caccia. In Villasimius, the Stagno di Notteri is a home to various rare birds, among which the Peregrine falcon. The Stagno di San Teodoro is the permanent residence of the black-winged stilt. It is also a home to flamingos, which are also abundant in the Stagno di Molentargius. Then there is a strip of Sardinia that produces a distinct feeling of continuity between land and sea: it is the Sinis Peninsula. From sea and sand dunes, ideal for navigating in a sailing boat and for having fun with kite and wind surf, you can move on to the Stagni di Cabras, where you cannot miss a day of fishing tourism on the fassois, typical wooden boats.
