Sardinian coast at its wildest: La Costa Verde

The Costa Verde (literally ‘green coast’) is one of the most unspoiled sections of Sardinia coastline. It extends from almost 50 km from Capo Frasca in the north to the long beach of Portixeddu in the south. Most part of the Costa Verde is part of the municipality of Arbus.

The Costa Verde has become a tourist destination only in recent times. This fact has guaranteed the perfect preservation of this peculiar and delicate ecosystem, which includes km of untouched sandy beaches with crystal clear waters and one of the largest and most important dune systems in Europe (with dune of over 100m).

Covered in Mediterranean scrub, this particular environment offers the best habitat for many species of birds and for the endemic Sardinian deer which can be often spotted on the dunes of Piscinas at dusk.

The Costa Verde is particularly interesting for those who want to discover more of the place they are visiting. Not far from the coast, the pristine mountains of the inland hide the remains and the ruins of the mines of Ingurtosu and Montevecchio.

These dismissed plants are now part of the Geomineral Park of Sardinia, an extended National Park which is part of the UNESCO project “National Geoparks” and of the “European Geoparks Networks”.

The primary objective of the Park is to preserve and to give value to the peculiar environment that the joint action of nature and mines has created. +

Whether you’re planning to visit the Costa Verde soon, or you’re just curious and you want to know a little more about it, these are the three spots you cannot miss.
