Even on windy days, the sea calmed down at sunset. No boat, no one on the beaches, silence, and atmosphere. Really romantic and excellent for portraits because of the warm and side light.

phi-beach-sunset4. Aperitif at Phi Beach

It is in an incredible position among granite rocks on the sea just in front of the sunset. It is in the heart of the luxurious and fashionable Costa Smeralda, so it’s not cheap (gin tonic € 15). Good music and always fun.

1Snorkeling at Capo Coda Cavallo

A highlight of the kayaking tour is definitely the snorkeling stop. With our equipment, you will discover the underwater world: starfish, octopus and hundreds of colorful fish. Very pleasant both for experts and for those who have never done it before.

Of course, you have to be very careful, but around here there is a lot of excellent points for jumps from any height. Swim in the sea before jumping to make sure there are no rocks underwater. Cala Greca near the fishing village of Golfo Aranci is a great spot.

camping in the galapagos islands3. Wild Camping by Kayak

Wake up at sunrise in front of the sea and paddle every day between small islands, white beaches, and granite cliffs. Wild birds, dolphins and you! Do not do it in July and August.

Ichnusa was the ancient name of the island, and the Sardinian flag is drawn on the label. It is an easy lager beer like a Heineken, but with a deeper taste and a more amber color.

Fantastic bar on the trendy beach of Marinella, near Porto Rotondo. You can have umbrellas and luxury lits during the day and eat on the sea at lunchtime, but the best is the DJ set after sunset!

Wild birds in the Marine Park of Tavolara!

Sardinia island is in the middle of the Mediterranean and many birds live here or stop during their migrations, finding favorable conditions to feed themselves and nesting.

A great way to see a lot of wild birds in their natural environment is to join a Kayak Tour with Ecosport Sardinia. From Capo Coda Cavallo until an island full of local birds.

The 5 Best

1.  Seagull

Gulls are typically medium to large, usually gray or white, often with black markings on the head or wings and webbed feet. They typically have harsh wailing or squawking calls. Their food often includes crabs and small fish. They are great fliers and you can see them flying everywhere every day.

2. Pink Flamingo

The most common of the plumage is pinkish-white, but the wing coverts are red and the flight feathers are black and the legs are entirely pink. The call is a goose-like honking. It resides in mudflats and shallow coastal lagoons with salt water, sucking water through its bill and filters out small shrimp, seeds, algae, and mollusks.

3. Shearwater

These birds fly with stiff wings very close to the water “shearing” the tips of waves, to move across wavefronts with the minimum of active flight. They feed on fish, squid, and similar seafood. Their primary feeding technique is diving, with some species diving to depths of 70 m.

4. Cormorant

Cormorants are medium-to-large birds, the majority of species have dark feathers. The bill is long, thin and hooked. Their feet are like fins. All species are fish-eaters. They are excellent divers, underwater they propel themselves with their feet with help from their wings, diving as deep as 45 meters.

5. Heron

The Herons have long legs and long beaks. You can easily see them in humid areas but sometimes we meet them in the sea as well. Although herons resemble birds in some other families, such as the storks and cranes, they differ from these in flying with their necks retracted, not outstretched.
