things to do
We are located 15 km from the sea: wild, unspoiled and off the beaten track beaches in the west, water sports paradise and beaches with facilities – sun umbrellas and loungers – at Porto Pollo and Palau or more fashionable beaches along the Costa Smeralda. In the North, Corsica and the enchanted islands of Archipelago della Maddalena are easily reached by boat.
Unique and spectacular sea beds in the marine reserve of the strait of Bonifacio offer themselves to divers and snorkelers (divingmediterraneo.it).
For kitesurfing and windsurfing Porto Pollo and Isola dei Gabbiani are a real paradise! (portopollo.it).
Lovers of trekking may enjoy the uncommon, moon-like rocky environment of Capo Testa and Moon Valley and also the Pulchiana monolith and Mount Limbara.
Llittle churches, ancient "stazzi" and numerous archaeological sites (prisgiona.beepworld.it).
All around, beautiful unspoilt surroundings caracterised by wild olive trees and cork oaks.
Genuine, typical food abounds at rural fetes (in the old days the only events for the inhabitants of the region to congregate) and in the more traditional agriturisms.
Some events not to be missed: "Musica sulle Bocche" (music on the Strait) at Santa Teresa di Gallura with concerts by the sea from sunrise to sunset; "Time in Jazz" with Paolo Fresu at Berchidda and the Aglientu Summer Festival.
