This delightful trip is broken up along the way with two or three stops in some of the most enchanting and least visited corners of the National Park, for an invigorating dive and a short stop for a swim directly from our comfortable boat.
The coastline is particularly rich in marine flora and fauna, and for those who are curious and want to admire the crystalline Sardinian sea beds here in Gallura with just a mask and snorkel, we suggest the Sea Safari, an entertaining guided excursion which in addition to looking at the marine eco system also lets you conduct your own active research together with the chance to see dolphins and other examples of flora and fauna.

During the first stop, it will be possible to visit the famous Giants’ Tombs, ancient remnants of the prehistoric period and after having travelled through the luxuriant Gallura countryside, which is itself an open museum window onto the 19th century and the culture of the “Stazzi” (small peasants’ houses), we arrive at the geographic heart of this granite region, pausing for a brief stop in the pretty village of Luogosanto. After a short visit to the Basilica, we continue to the panoramic viewpoint of the Hermitage of San Trano which offers a magnificent view out as far as nearby Corsica.
An abundant tasting of local products briefly interrupts our discovery of this area, after which we continue with a visit to the ruins of the Castello Baldu. Passing through the country around Arzachena, we arrive at the La Prijona Nuraghe, a majestic symbol of both the island and Sardinian history itself.
