Historic industrial practices, stunning natural environment and beautiful architecture converge at Molentargius
Nov 2021 • Family
The tour covering the history, the industrial process and the natural environment of the saline was great although some aspects not currently covered should also be included, for instance the edificio nervi or the città del sale

An interesting place for a person who loves Biology
Nov 2021 • Family
Before I visited I read most of the reviews here. I must say immediately that I loved my very long walk around the park as I love Biology and stop to admire not only birds but also flora and fauna.

We arrived at the park by taking the PF bus from piazza Matteotti. If you are staying at T Hotel there's bus 3 that stops you a 10 minutes walk away from the park. There are 3 options. €15 per person if you want to take the minibus with a local guide that can take you in all the places and explain to you. You can also hire a bike. I opted to take the 3 hours walk. I saw not only Flamingoes in the park but I also saw 4 flying ahead. I also saw ducks, cormorants, black wing stilts, moorehen, common sand Piper, collar doves, sea gulls, hooded crows, jack dows, and starlings. The walk is free of charge. I really enjoyed it and recommend it for nature lovers, but other people might find nothing special or interesting for them.

Beautiful pink flamingos!

Make sure you have enough time to visit Molentargius Park. There is a good variety of birds. If you are lucky you will see the flamingos moving from Molentargius Park to Santa Gilla Lagoon. It usually happens around 7.30/8.00 pm. They fly in a V shape: wonderful view!

Excellent electric bus tour to see Flamingos and wildlife
Feb 2020
We booked the 15Euro electric bus tour around the huge natural park, on the sea at Cagliari. Its huge site was historically used for salt extraction, and now is a haven for wildlife and in particular wild flamingos who feed and breed on the huge lakes. The electric bus is an easy way of seeing a large amount of the site, and the driver/guide describes the history and wildlife. Use of the electric bus tour also provides access to sensitive areas not open to the public unguided. We had never seen so many flamingos up close, courting, and flying above you. There were other rare birds (falcon, heron, etc). The site is a good place to walk, bicycle, jog, exercise, and get fresh air, near to the Poetto Beach.

Rent a bike and watch the flamingos
Feb 2019
I visited the place twice - in December and February. Flamingos come to spend the winter in Sardinia and park of Molentargius lake is one of the most easily accessed places where you can spot those birds. At the information point you can arrange excursions with a guide or take a walk or even better - hire a bike (for a fee - check my photos) and ride along the salines. A lot of fun for birdwatchers but not only.

TIP: if you'd like to spot some more flamingos, the other good place is saline lake south-west of Cagliari adjacent to road SS195 (car required)

A nice place at the heart of the city but little to see.
Oct 2019
We've been by bus from the city to the Natural Parc. The first part which can be seen from the street shows at the other end a handful of flamingos, hardly visible. Entering the park, there is an elevated post to observe the birds in the large "pond"... in principle. In fact there is a wall of high reeds in front of us and there is nothing to see at short distance again though the birds are present just behind. Quite a deception. By chance a handful of flamingos flew overhead in the setting sunlight and that was worth all the trip. We walked from there to the beach and the walk was pleasant again with another flock of flying flamingos.

We were driven around this area as part of our group's city tour. Unfortunately we were not given time to go a walk. We saw quite a few flamingos from the bus though.

Very unplugged viewing area

We took the bus out to the lagoon (bus stop 5-10 minutes flat walk or drive right to the start). There is a short gravel walk along the lagoon where you can see the flamingos float, eat and now and then take a short flight. It's not spectacular, but it was certainly interesting and heartening to see them in a natural habitat instead of a shallow cement pond in a zoo.
