Outdoors in Sardinia

Sardinia captivates with its wild interior and out-of-this-world beaches. Its coastal drives thrill, its prehistory puzzles and millions of sheep rule the roads. Get the lowdown on the island's outdoor appeal.

SIGHTS

Cala Goloritze

(Golfo di Orosei)

The last little beach on the Golfo di Orisei, Cala Goloritze rivals the best. At the southern end, bizarre limestone formations soar away from the cliffside. Among them is j aw-dropping Monte Caroddi or the Aguglia, a 148m-high needle of rock beloved of climbers.

Cala Luna

(Golfo di Orosei)

This wildly beautiful crescent bay is backed by a lush ravine, framed by cave-pitted cliffs and pummelled by exquisite turquoise waters. Access is on foot or by boat only. Linger after the tour boats have gone and you'll pretty much have the bay to yourself. If your navigation skills are good, you could continue along a tough, unmarked trail to the striking Arco Lupiru rock arch

Cascata Lequarci

(Ulassai)

Particularly spectacular after heavy rainfall, this arresting waterfall five miles southwest of Ulassai has wispy threads that plummet almost 100m over a vertical rock face.
