Sardinia, a unique land and region, has succeeded from its isolation to find strength and tools to amaze the world with the beauty of its landscapes, a beauty preserved with conscience and attention, respecting and protecting the flora and fauna.The ancient history of the island has infused the Sardinian people with a unique pride and loyalty, which are accompanied by the pleasure of simplicity and living in contact with nature.
The coasts of the island are developed for as long as 2,400 km, a quarter of which is formed by sandy coasts, while the remaining are characterised by continuous and suggestive variation of beaches and ridges, coves and cliffs, places dominated by a nature that for some features still remain completely uncontaminated and that, in most cases, preserves the charm that has passed through time and history of the places.
Besides the natural beauties, when it comes to Sardinia, it is inevitable to mention the sea that takes on unique transparencies and reflections like a jewel, with submerged landscapes very complex and rich in colours, to admire, in extraordinary environments, colourful species of gorgonian, jewelled anemones, or remain admired to entire walls covered with red coral.
Sardinia is characterised by a mild climate, which certainly contributes to the increase and development of tourism, that every year attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists, anxious to discover and admire the uncontaminated landscapes on the island, to immerse themselves in the water incredibly pure and transparent, to discover the fascinating historical and archaeological evidences present in many places.
A fascinating aspect of the traditional activity of the island is the visit to the still active tuna-fishing nets of Carloforte and Portoscuso, which constitute a piece of history and tradition of Sardinian fishermen who pass on rituals and fishing techniques of which origins are lost in time.
Sardinian subsoil is very rich in minerals, but mining is now in decline, from an industrial point of view, but it is rediscovering a new life through tourist revaluation, which thanks to the development of the Archaeological Mines Park, under the patronage of the UNESCO, attracts more and more tourists to the discovery of a productive dimension that has strongly characterised the social and urban development of these places.
