Sardinia, an island that can boast of having more than 300 beaches and small creeks, it is home to several dozen for their particular state of preservation, made ​​possible mainly due to the minimum impact of the tourist facilities in the area, can be considered the true wild oases.
Thank's to the shortage of tourist settlements, often the only possibility to spend the holidays in these virgins places is to book one of Sardinia vacation rentals located nearby.
With the premise that there are so many beaches of Sardinia, which can be defined as wild, this wants to be just a small guide that suggests what you could take advantage to see if you were in one of the four sides of this wonderful island.
We start from the north, from the north-western precisely: if you are on holiday in Alghero you can not miss a visit to the beach of Rena Maiore, consisting of small white and black pebbles polished by the sea that look like pearls overlooking a clear blue sea. To get there you need to travel down a steep hill close to the sea, in the middle of the mediterranean vegetation.
Moving towards the east and heading towards the Maddalena Archipelago, we find the incredible Cala Corsara, on the south coast of the island of Spargi. Reachable only by boat, is adorned with small dunes dotted with roses, sea lilies and junipers, which give off an intense aroma. The sea impresses with its bright colors, ranging from turquoise to emerald while the beach is made up of grains of sand so small as to be almost intangible. Suggestive shapes of rocks shaped by the sea and wind.
On the east coast, near Siniscola, is the beach of Berchida: several kilometers long, is the ideal place for walking and due to its size it is never very crowded. Fine sand, crystal clear sea and ancient junipers forming veritable natural huts are the hallmarks of this resort.
Immediately south of Berchida find the oasis of Bidderosa: it is located a few kilometers north of Orosei, it is a park of five coves framed by junipers, oaks and cork trees. The landscape is postcard with emerald colors of the sea and the pure white of the beach. The access, usually allowed in the months from June to September and through the payment of an entrance fee, is restricted to a maximum of 130 cars a day. You can also admire the pond Sa Curcurica, near the route that leads to the sea.
Along the same side but further south there are in the town of Baunei, the beach of Cala GoloritzŤ. Named "Italian National Monument" in 1995 for its incredible beauty, it is possible to reach the bay by land starting from the plateau of Golgo after an hour of descent, or by sea. The turquoise color of the sea, due to the underwater springs gushing out of some, is embellished with some marble rocks, smoothed by time, among which a large arch towards the sea. The beach, composed of small and white pebbles, is dominated by an imposing spire, whose climbing is a must try by fans of free climbing. Charming the presence of falcon of the queen, a very rare species that has chosen this area to nest.
Making a big jump on the opposite side, in the Oristano area, we find the little-known but beautiful beach of Maimoni, in the Sinis Peninsula. Its singularity consists in being composed of pink and white quartz pebbles that make it a shine almost blinding.
A little further south, in what is known as Costa Verde, we find the beach of Piscinas, surrounded by towering sand dunes (among the highest in Europe) shaped by the wind and dotted by fragrant mediterranean vegetation. In this place is not difficult to see deers that actually go to the sea and sea turtles that lay their eggs.
Worth visiting the mines located in the nearby Montevecchio, a few kilometers away.
Further south there is Cala Domestica, a creek that opens up between two white limestone cliffs and access to which is represented by an old mining tunnel. The whole area is characterized by the ruins of the surrounding mines and the beach, very intimate, is crossed by a stream that flows into the sea, making the water very fresh
The last two wild beaches that are worth visiting are located on the southern coast of Sardinia. The first is Cala Sinzias, on the east side, near Villasimius: it has a coastline of fine white sand, interrupted by rocks and behind is bordered by a grove of eucalyptus trees protected by a headland.
The second, Cala del Morto, on the west side, between the beautiful beaches of Chia, is characterized by a small beach nestled between two small cliffs and consists mainly of fine and amber sand and a beautiful sea with crystal clear water with a shallow and sandy backdrop. It is so named because of the presence of a cross between the rocks near the bay. To enjoy the beauty and the sense of peace that these beaches are able to convey it is advisable to visit them during the months of June and September, when the influx of tourists is reduced.
Those who already had plans to spend the 2014 Sardinia holidays, these resorts are attractive solutions for those seeking relaxation and a more intimate relationship with nature.
