The caves in Sardinia are a world apart, little know among the people visiting this beautiful island. But these caves are as beautiful as the beach and the coast of Sardinia. One of the most beautiful is the cave of Is Janas. It is located in the territory of Sadali, near Nuoro, and itâ€™s 240 meters long. It extends horizontally, so the visit is within reach of anyone and is not particularly difficult.
To see something different from the usual Sardinia, another way to discover the island is to travel off-road by a 4×4. A way to get to know with the deepest and fascinating wilderness of Sardinia.
Wildlife in its element breathtaking views and more. During the stops in the villages of the hinterland you can discover traditions and culinary specialties.
Tuerredda beach, a few miles from the center of Teulada, locatedÂ in a beautiful bay betweenÂ Cape Malfatano and Cape Spartivento, is known to be one of the ten most beautiful beaches in Sardinia. Its sand, as white as flour and water colors, so intense, give an exotic atmosphere to the place.
Itâ€™s in the south of Sardinia, not far from Cagliari, yet this beach of 600 meters in extent is still wild: a kind of a pristine beauty that has become increasingly hard to find.
Among the beaches of Sardinia, the Dunes of Piscinas, near Arbus, are among the most fascinating. And in fact, UNESCO declared them World Heritage. They are so large that go over two miles inland and can reach 100 feet tall (which makes them among the highest in Europe).
It ‘s the perfect place for long, quiet walks in nature, especially in the early hours of the morning: this is the ideal time to spot deer and the other species that cross the beach to return to their shelters in the groves of juniper. The fauna and flora found in this environment a great refuge: here, between June and July, nests the Caretta Caretta, one of the most protected species of turtle in Italy. And you can also see various birds of prey like golden eagles and peregrine falcons.
