    Awesome view, fresh air and beautiful cave. Definitely worth a visit. You have to buy tickets to visit cave and then you can take the stairs down. I thought you can just walk down and up again for free.

    First of all, EXTREMELY CROWDED BEACH. I visited at the end of september and there were still a lot of people. Better to visit in low season.
    You have to do a hike of 4km to get to the beach. Pretty easy to go down and up.
    6 euros entrance fee. You have to book online (only 200 people per day).
    We saw a lot of donkeys, cows and goats which I loved!
    Water was not crystal clear, so, not so good for snorkeling.
    In general, very good beach and hike (despite having so many people), colors are true and the location is very virgin.

    We spent a day with Filippo from the Chìntula-Gorropu.info group. He took us by jeep down to the valley from which we reached by foot the gorge of Gorropu. The visit itself (4 hours by foot in all, we took a lighter version) was wonderful - the gorge is exceptionnel and the way leading to it is a great walk. Filippo was a wonderful guide: just the right amount of info, on the topics that were of interest to us. We also discussed Sardinia and more general issues which was an eyeopener. Most important, he is a very pleasent person to spend a day with!

    The price was more than reasonable and a wonderful time was had by all.

    We did this without a guide. It's quite a hike (as we walked from the café by the caves - which are well worth seeing too) but absolutely worth the effort. Breathtaking views. and no-one else around. It was 35 degrees on the day we did it. Make sure to take lots of water and wear clothes you don't mind getting dusty. You climb up steadily to a height of 500m.

    We didn't even know this place existed. We had planned to go to Spiaggia di Talmone, which is close by. Even to get to Spiaggia di Talmone involves a walk from the road. Beyond the beach is a path which takes you further around the headland, until you get to the Battery. "Camouflaged in the thick Mediterranean maquis that thrives on the rocks and rugged terrain behind the coast, for two hundred years the Talmone Gun Battery has presided over the tract of sea that separates the island of Spargi from Sardinia. The numerous artillery guns jutting out from the underground terraces safeguarded with equal force the frontiers of the Kingdom of Sardinia and those of the Kingdom of Italy. Perfectly integrated into the landscape that contains and protects it, the Talmone Gun Battery lets us in on the exceptionally challenging daily life of the soldiers: the never-ending hours spent scrutinising the sea from the watchtower, the dormitories, the tracking station, the underground munitions depots and, last but by no means least, the implacable solitude. In 1947, shortly after the end of the Second World War, the Paris Peace Treaties required Italy to cease using all of its coastal military facilities: the Gun Battery was, then, abandoned to the ravages of time until, in 2002, the Autonomous Region of Sardinia entrusted the property to FAI on a concessionary basis, and it immediately underwent a painstaking process of conservative restoration, befitting the extraordinary landscape of the Sardinian coast." (From FAI).
    When we went, we did not expect anyone to be there, but it was open and we were the only visitors. It really was remarkable. The guide did not speak English and we did not speak Italian, but surprisingly we did ok and learned lots. It was one of the highlights of the holiday as it was completely unexpected.

    There was a box for donations, but for 4 Euros, you also get a t-shirt. You wouldn't get that at English Heritage or National Trust!

    This is a stunning beach. We came here as part of a boat tour. It really is a beautiful beach but unfortunately gets overcrowded with the vast number of boat trips. Definitely bring a parasol and plenty of water. All the beaches on this stretch of coastline are stunning.

    Selvaggio Blue means the" blue wilderness". It's a "non trail" trail adjacent to Thyrennian sea-the part of Mediterenean in between Sardinia and Italy. A guide is essential .There is no water along this trail-for us, water was delivered in predetermined areas .We slept in caves by the water, rappelled numerous times , and slept one night in a "Refugio" where we had the best goat meat ever. Another night we slept in an old shepard hut.The views of the sea along the trail were unbelievable. One needs to be ingrate shape and adventurous in order to do this trail. Ir's well worth it.Probably the hardest trek in Europe, and one with the most amazing views.

    I have been on wilderness trails around Africa a lot, and travelled to many different fascinating places, but I have kept coming back to the Parco Della Giara nearly every year for about 15 years and every visit is a discovery. I have know Roberto Sanna for this long period, and still I'm Impressed by how he manages to keep adapting his guided tours to his groups, small or big and the very different conditions, depending on the weather or the period of the year. Even when only a few horses are visible, his knowledge of the park is so deep that he could talk about a hundred other fascinating things and still make the visit worth every penny. Talking of which, considering the unique nature of this place, the visit is very reasonably priced. Don't miss the opportunity to taste the local food available at the meeting centre.

    We were recommended this walk by a Sardinian friend who told us about the stunning waterfall. We were not disappointed. We took our son (24 yrs) and his friend to see this stunning site. The walk down for 2K was harder than the walk back I thought. The time taken to do this was not as long as we thought. It was truly worth it! Swimming in the cool pool under the trickling waterfall was delightful. The scenery is gorgeous. I have never seen anything like it. Totally recommend it. We were not charged the 7 Euros either. Another bonus.

    Me and my husband are sardinians but this has been the first time for us on the north and with great pleasure we discovered this museum.
    The guide Gabriele has been amazing, very prepared, professional and kind.
    The museum and all its exhibits are absolutely worthwhile.
    It's has been indeed a wonderful experience for us been there and see by ourself, and learn a lot more about our traditions, history and customs of our ancestors.
    Thank you so much!!

    It was an amazing tour! Andrea (the tourguide) is very kind and explains the nature and anything else. I joined the experts and we did a lot of galop and it was a wonderful experience. The nature, the horses and the tour is perfect. There is also an option for beginners so everyone can have a special day.
