At the foot of the slope, a small cliff opens onto a large, wild expanse of fine, light-coloured sand, more than two kilometres long, embraced by a dense pine forest, where you can enjoy some shade on hot, muggy days. The beach of Portixeddu, also known as rio Mannu because it is cut in half by the mouth of the stream, overlooks a fantastic sea, with a splendid transparent seabed that slopes rapidly and is affected by strong currents that must always be taken into account. The water is crystal clear and, with the complicity of the sun, it creates captivating sky blue colours and wonderful reflections of light.
