Eight kilometres of beaches, one of the longest on the Island, where stretches of light sand alternate with brighter-coloured pebbly sections. The Marina di Cardedu is a very long coastline in southern Ogliastra, protected by an expanse of eucalyptus trees behind it, overlooking the clear sea reflecting shades of blue and emerald green. Thanks to its considerable size, the coast is never too crowded, not even in high season, while its position means is exposed to the sirocco winds, making it a destination for surfers. The sea quickly becomes deeper and is ideal for diving and snorkelling. The surrounding landscape is wild and captivating, with the hills of Monte Ferru standing out in the background, covered with Mediterranean scrub and sloping towards the sea with spectacular cliffs.
