Underwater Itineraries

There are several itineraries to suggest, with surface or much deeper diving, some of which are already well-known.
The seabed includes three well-identified environmental units.
The first one can be found in not very deep areas and is formed by uniform seabed consisting of lithic or organic sands with some isolated granite outcrops.
Posidonia grows on the sand and forms large beds, descending among terraces, granite pinnacles and caves populated by European locust lobsters, lobsters, and brown meagres.
At greater depths, a second environmental unit consists of large basins alternating with blocks of organic concretions in a landscape animated by bio-constructions mainly made of encrusting corals.
Finally, in not very deep areas, we find a particular environmental unit. Granite cliffs, ravines, sand basins, and erosion channels animate the landscape.
The water transparency is considerable. There are algae, while Posidonia grows in the coralligenous sedimentary pouches.

The suggested itineraries develop along the edge of an imposing and indented cliff overhanging the sea, which represents a sort of huge panoramic terrace you can walk along. You will see several surprises: the basalt cliffs, the white beaches of shining quartz, the various colors of the rocks shaped by the water and by the wind, the lagoons of the hinterland populated by flamingos make this stretch of land a unique settings.

Itineraries by Mountain Bike

The Sinis-Montiferru area is a particularly suitable territory for mountain bike activities, both at a tourist and sport-competitive level. The natural environment in which our itineraries have been prepared, its integrity, its wild aspect, the several historical traces you can find along the routes, transform the excursion not only into a sport activity, but also into a real discovery. The long beaches, the large coastal dirt roads, the long overhanging cliffs, the big lacustrine oasis give the opportunity to carry out long and interesting hikes thanks to the low difference in height along the coast. On the contrary, the nearby mountain massif of Montiferru and Monte Arci with their slopes covered with woods enable the expert and exacting persons to carry out exciting bicycle rides. Once you have chosen your itinerary and settled the bike at your disposal, one of our expert guides will lead you at the discovery of the territory. The coastal itineraries we suggest can be carried out by mountain bike during the outward journey, and by rubber dinghy during the return journey.
