True nature of an undiscovered world.

As usual i met my friend Massimo in a bar for coffee to plan our route for trekking. We decided as it was such a beautiful day we would check out the lagoons and beach at “Is Solinas” in Sardegna south. What a surprise it was from beginning to end, with very interesting scenery and an insight of the past.

The lagoon was used to farm fish back in the days of the mining era, when this would have been a thriving community. Now a haven for wildlife.

There are many small canals just like this one that let the water flow in and out of the lagoon, so the water stayed fresh.

This is where the trail begins between the sea and the lagoon. it’s over 4 klms of a very beautiful trail and a haven for wildlife.

This canal looks like a river as it winds its way through the reeds.

The water flows freely into the canal giving it life.

The beach at Is Solinas is 4 klm long and as you can see we are the only ones on the beach even though it was 25°.

Is Solinas is just 45 minutes from the trekking cottage apartment, and well worth a visit, whether its to lay on a sun drenched beach, trekking, or mountain biking. For trekking and mountain biking there is many klms of trails you can follow of level ground. If you are really up to it you can even reach Porto Pino by following the coastal path, where you will find stunning views and rocky coves. For the less adventurous, you will find two bars along the beach.
