This beach, known as the beach of stones, is a nice place where have a rest surrounded by nature, and, why not, have a swim. Being aware, because there isn't sand, so it needs using rubber sandals, in order to get into the water. But this place is interesting for landscape photography as well. It will offer many spots where take some special picture, often long expositions if there's the right sea and wind that makes waves. It is also suitable for dreamy sunset.
Arriving there is really easy and wherever you are you have to get to Red island until you reach Boschetto street ("via del boschetto"), where you can park your car. For the beach follow the red trail draw in the map.
It's nearly impossible to get lost, anyway these are the coordinates of the place: 41.004081, 8.877351 .
The beach with its stones, water rocks, small bays, birds as well if you are lucky. In fact, sometimes there are kingfishers, cormorants and seagulls.
All over the year.
Close to the beach there's of course the village, Red island, but there are several fantastic beaches further north reachable by car.
Le Quarci waterfall is a big waterfall near the village of Ulassai. This waterfall is really hight, at least 70 meters from the top and it arrives until the car road, so often it's quite dangerous going there. But if you are lucky you'll see one of the most impressive waterfalls of the island.
Arriving there is not so easy and you need a couple of high wellingtons because you have to pass across the river that makes the waterfall. quite simple. Unfortunately, there aren't many other ways to get there, so being prepared, even though it should be better to call a guide. As always if you need more information or need a guide don't hesitate to contact me.
The best way, in my opinion, is to get to the following coordinates 39.814531, 9.488178 and to continue following the off-road path by car from the mark on the map until the parking space; you can follow two path, the 1st one is for every cars, the 2nd one for off-road cars. The spot is quite near the parking space:
Of course the waterfall and the scenery around it as well.
This waterfall is active only in winter, during the rainy season, and it isn't easy in Sardinia to understand when, due to lack of rain in many months of the year.
Near the waterfall, there's a beautiful cave, Su Murutti cave, and two nuraghi, Sanu and Orruttu. Then the environment around the village is really nice and interesting, so don't forget to take a look to it.
Sos Molinos waterfall is a nice small waterfall near the village of Santu Lussurgiu.
Arriving there is quite simple. You need to follow Azuni avenue until the end of the village and continue to 15 provincial road. After about 2 km you'll find a small car park on the left side of the road where leaving the car. On the left side of the car park, there's a path where going down until the waterfall. Be careful in winter because it could be slippy. For better pictures, I advise you to take a couple of high wellingtons in order to get into the small lake in front of the waterfall, or following the stream.
The waterfall and the stream.
The best period is during the winter, after rains, but also in spring when the temperatures are good and the vegetation is green.
Mount Ferru (about 10Km), Bia josso waterfall (about 12Km).
I know that area quite well, so if you need more information or need a guide don't hesitate to contact me.
This is one of mine picture of the waterfall.
