IN THE OPEN AIR
The home of Nuragus is an ideal destination for outdoor activities in all seasons. The benefits of exercise in the middle of the countryside can be enjoyed at any time, just like the fascinating landscape. Walks or bike rides between Poetto Beach and Molentargius-Saline Regional Natural Park, where birdwatchers will find an extremely interesting natural area enclosed by an urban agglomerate which is one of the most important European sites for stopovers, wintering and nesting of many species of water birds, including the pink flamingo.
Another destination to note if you stay in Cagliari is the Sella del Diavolo promontory, one of the most evocative and symbolic places in the city. The whole city, the Gulf of the Angels and the underlying coves can be admired from the Sella above, surrounded by Mediterranean scrub.
Villasimius has recently become a marine reserve so that the wonderful plants and animals living on its stunning seabed can be safeguarded in the best way. This makes it the ideal place for diving and trips, including one that will certainly be considered to the Capo Carbonara promontory.
People who prefer to take an active holiday in the Cagliari area can go horse-riding, while water sports fans can ride the waves at one of the coastal areas specialised in windsurfing.
