Sardinia – the second largest island of the Mediterranean Sea – has an extremely diverse landscape: 2,000 kilometers of coastline frame a land with a rugged interior. Beside the remarkable nature and the turquoise sea, the island is also so rich in culture and traditions: a paradise for outdoor incentives. Here some ideas with low impact on the territory and great value in terms of wellbeing.
LIVE THE BLUE ZONE World-known for the record number of centenarians, you will explore the life of small villages, learn from the locals the secret of longevity, the recipes deeply rooted in local identity such as Culurgiones or cheese-making. No doubts that touching with hand this natural and cultural heritage will prove quite a transformative experience. (Ph. Domu Antiga, Malloreddus_)
WALKING INCENTIVE In an almost untouched and uncontaminated environment, many are the routes to walk, trek, climb. While crossing springs, torrents, oak and olive trees, it’s easy to meet the local fauna. Any route will have plenty of opportunities for photo shoots and local food delicacies. You will end up with amazing blue waters which tower over the sea, probably tasting a glass of red Cannonau. (Ph. Jessica Bacciu, Antonio Occhioni
SUP & PILATES A water sport for perfect core strength building? Why not trying a SUP excursion along the coast combined with pilates class in front of the sunset… Or, for a more adrenalin alternative, go for jumps by coasteering (Ph.Woodenwaves)
SAIL Nearly 2.000 Km of coast are available for sailing, snorkelling, scuba diving, swimming. The strong winds of Sardinia will be in your favor when sailing on a gullet or vessel. Also, kayaking and canoing are great sustainable options.
