The natural landscape of southern Sardinia alternates along its coast between high granite promontories, immense sand dunes and wetlands of great environmental value, a place of rest and nesting for pink flamingos. Along hiking trails in the hinterland of Pula, in the Gutturu Mannu Natural Park, it is not uncommon to come across the Sardinian deer and impressive specimens of holm oak and yew.
Lashed by the wind, refreshed by the shade of the junipers: some of the most beautiful areas in the Mediterranean can be found on this stretch of coast. A few steps from the lighthouse, framed by the Mediterranean scrub, you will find the small Cala Cipolla. Further on, the sandy stretch of soft light sand of Su Judeu extends, while towards the west, between Capo Malfatano and Capo Spartivento, you land in the spectacular Tuerredda.
Inextricably linked, Sardinian history and nature retrace each other’s steps all the way along the coast. Like the ancient Roman road that connected the cities of Nora and Bithia and the important Phoenician and Roman centre of the Archaeological Area of Nora, whose ruins lead to a promontory jutting out towards the sea. Built to protect the coast, the ancient Spanish towers of the sixteenth century are today spectacular viewpoints.
Located just a few minutes away, guests of the Lighthouse can enjoy the services of the Is Molas Golf Club course, one of the most fascinating technical routes in the Mediterranean. An important point of reference for all golf lovers, it is characterised by a unique microclimate, offered by the protection of the inland mountains, with mild temperatures that rarely drop below 15 degrees, even in winter.
