Given its strategic position, Camping Flumendosa Village is an ideal departure point for getting out and about to explore the natural surroundings of South Western Sardinia. The stunning scenery, where traces of the past meet nature against the backdrop of the beautiful sea, will leave you breathless.
Close to the campsite, visitors can hire rubber dinghies and small sailing boats and head out on the water to explore this spectacular stretch of coastline. Sea lovers will also find windsurfs, canoes and kayaks available for hire, and there are plenty of opportunities for scuba diving along the coast. For the less experienced, diving courses with professional instructors can be arranged.
Visitors who are interested in cycling to the close-lying Gutturu Mannu nature reserve or simply cycling along the coast have both mountain bikes and road bikes available for hire. If trekking is more your thing, you can take advantage of the expert guides available to accompany you, or head for one of the simpler routes that you can follow by yourself.
Located in the countryside around Pula, Gutturu Mannu is an area of huge natural wealth with granite massifs of Palaeozoic origin with peaks rising above 1000 metres. The state forest of the same name is rich in holm oaks; yew trees and holly bushes can also be found growing side by side with traditional species of Mediterranean scrub. As far as fauna goes, the area is famed for the presence of Sardinian deer and wild boar. The area also offers numerous trekking routes.
The beautiful Cala Bernardini is the starting point for a straightforward excursion along the ancient Roman road that once linked the Phoenician towns of Nora and Bithia. The road offers spectacular views over this stretch of coastline. Easily travelled by foot or mountain bike, the route is about 5 km long (10 km both ways), and the ancient paving is still visible along certain stretches. The route, categorised as a tourist route, is sign-posted with a few yellow arrows and is a non-challenging walk or ride.
The complex interaction of different natural elements is what has designed (and continues to do so) the unique coastline of Chia, alternating as it does between high rocky headlands, long sandy stretches and interesting humid areas. The important environmental value of the area is due to the formation of high mobile and stabilised dunes that are covered with vegetation and beautiful centuries-old juniper trees. Just in front of the dunes, the coastal lakes are the habitual resting and nesting spot for the elegant pink flamingos that can often be observed during the summer season.
