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.
The Dunes of Piscinas are also very popular beaches of Sardinia among surfers because of their exposure to the Mistral wind, and that here is constant and, in addition to shaping the dunes themselves, creates the ideal conditions to enjoy the waves.
