Sardinia - thanks to its 1,840 kilometre long coastline, almost entirely wild and uncontaminated; its clear sea, free from any kind of pollution; its extremely temperate climate and its long "hot season" - has become one of the most popular summer resorts.
If to these outstanding features one adds the wild inland areas - still keeping in many cases the characteristics of a primordial nature with extremely rare species of flora and fauna, mostly extinct anywhere else in Europe; if one adds its extraordinary artistic and archaeological heritage, witness of the millenarian events of this land which still today reveals a strict affection to the purest tradition through its varied handicrafts and suggestive customs; if one adds the renowned qualities of its typical products, its genuine cuisine and, last but not least, its inhabitants' proverbial hospitality, one has a sufficiently complete picture of the "good reasons" why many Italians and an ever increasing number of foreigners choose to spend their holidays on the island.
If it is true that all these aspects have really contributed to ensure the island's tourist success through the years, it is also true that the first strong and irresistible call came from the splendid Sardinian coasts. And it is just to the extraordinary marine Sardinian landscape, which is so pregnant with wild beauty and fascination, that we have decided to dedicate this Site.
This site is a "multimedial" celebration of the splendour of the Sardinian coasts: a rapid and very pleasing flight over the most striking stretches of them, the images of which, although very beautiful, can only in part communicate its indescribable fascination.
We have chosen 71 stupendous areas, capable of enchanting even those who have known and have being frequenting them for years: all the same it is not easy to affirm with absolute certainty that the best of the island coasts is contained in these pages. In fact there are many other hidden and isolated corners, kingdom of a still uncontaminated nature.
