Sardinia: about 1850Km of coastline where white beaches with crystal clear sea water alternate themselves with rugged cliffs shaped by the wind; the all framed by a savage nature consisting in mountains covered by forests, deep gorges and rivers that preserved the mystery of the Nuragic civilization over the centuries, the island's ancient traditions and a simply and genuine gastronomy, a mix of both pastoral and sea influences. The most renowned destinations of the northern coast are Santa Teresa di Gallura and La Maddalena Archipelago, one of the latest ecologic paradises in Italy, Palau with the Capo d'Orso promontory, the Emerald Coast, with its suggestive coves and the VIP destinations of Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo, and, finally, Golfo Aranci and Olbia, with the gulf of the same name and the isles of Tavolara and Molara. On the southern coast we find Villasimius, close to the Capo Carbonara promontory, Cagliari with its districts of Castello, Marina, Stampace and Villanova, the charming show of pink flamingos in Molentargius pond. To the west there are Pula, Domus de Maria and Nora, with the submerged remains of a Punic city. On the eastern coast: the Nuoro area with the towns of San Teodoro, Budoni, the Orosei gulf and Cala Gonone, the Ogliastra area with its rocky and high coastline, Arbatax's harbor and the beaches of Bari Sardo. On the western side: Alghero, town with strong Catalan influence, with the bay of Porto Conte and Capocaccia promontory; then the Sinis peninsula, bordered by the gulf of Oristano, ponds and lagoons, mostly protected natural areas. Finally, inland is characterized by the rugged landscape of Gallura, to the north, the mountains of Goceano, the Barbagia area, the Gennargentu massif, the plateau of Sarcidano and the lowlands of Marmilla, to the center, and the river plain of Campidano, to the south.
