Walk the coast of Sardinia from Montevecchio to Sant’Antioco

The Sardinia Coastal Walking tour takes you along the breathtaking coast of Sardinia, where you can trek from beach to forest to dune and immerse yourself in the unique culture of the island along the way.

The Sardinia Coastal Walking trip begins in Montevecchio, where a warm swimming pool and an ocean view greet you. You’ll trek through an abandoned mine site and plunge deep into the Croccorigas forest. Keep an eye out for Sardinian deer! Then, the Sardinia Coastal Walking tour leads you to vast dunes, where it’s just you, the sand, and the sea for miles.
