Costa Verde (‘Green Coast’) owes its name to the colors painting its profile: almost 50 kilometers of immaculate beaches and crystal-clear waters, home to dolphins and tortoises, and sections of Mediterranean scrub which make an habitat for deer and rare breeds of birds (for a dreamy holiday in Costa Verde, choose a dreamy hotel such as the Resort Le Dune Piscinas). Located in the Marina di Arbus, south-west of Sardinia, Costa Verde has unveiled itself to visitors only recently, and this makes it one of the purest, picturesque parts of the Mediterranean area and one of most fascinating regions for your Sardinia Beach Holidays. An itinerary on the path to Costa Verde’s beaches must include at least three spots that will leave you breathless…
Piscinas is famous for its Saharan colors, thanks to a curtain of sandy dunes, barely interrupted by sprouts of Mediterranean vegetation. A natural picture of authentic beauty embraces the beach, a 3-kilometre coastline made up of white sand that dives into a sea so immaculate that almost looks like a natural pool, as the name of the place suggests. For those who love a good swim into the open sea, its bottom will unveil an unusual discovery: the wreck of a vessel lying there for over two hundred years, almost intact. Bring yourself a diving mask, a snorkel and a pair of fins, and prepare yourself for a magic experience.
Scivu has to be reached downhill, getting through a wooden corridor along the coastline before to achieve one of the most beautiful and wildest beaches in Sardinia. People say that its name originates from the particular sound produced by the sand while walking, even though it sounds more like a murmur coming from the sea. At Scivu, Sardinia presents itself like a virgin land, beautiful and indomitable, framed by two rocky walls enclosing a sandy cove stroked by crystal-clear water. On the beach, where visitors are recommended not to go in case of strong Mistral wind, there is a kiosk as well as umbrellas, kayaks and many more entertainments to enjoy one day at Scivu. However, this is such place to be enchanted by even doing nothing.
Imagine a spectacular bay lost in the Indian Ocean, where the colorful water reminds the suggestions of a lagoon, and the gold sand is mixed with silver fragments of rocks that make astonishing lights. Cala Domestica, located at south of Costa Verde, is literally that kind of beach you see in a movie. In fact, it has been chosen many times as a set for movies and spots. Small and isolated, protected by a series of big rocks, is equipped with many services, such as a kiosk, showers, kayaks to rent and much more.
