Sailing slowly: magical vibes in the sea of Sardinia

Almost hidden from the beach of Spiaggia Grande, it is the star attraction of this corner of Sardinia: the legendary Mangiabarche Lighthouse. Before reaching it and landing into the namesake little island where it stands, we’ll visit another equally fascinating place: the cliffs of Nido dei Passeri, that will remind us of Nordic landscapes. When the sun is going to set behind the Lighthouse and disappear into the sea, the sky will take on shades of pastel colors, and we’ll desire to never stop this adventure at the discovery of a marvelous land.
