Informazioni sul luogo

Luogo: 09011 Calasetta SU

The cliff of Nido dei Passeri is one of the most striking places on Sant’Antioco Island. A cliff overlooking the sea, a unique landscape for the colours of the rocks, artfully shaped by the wind and the sea. For the lovers of strong emotions, from some points it is possible to dive directly into the sea from considerable heights while for those who love quite and peace it is the ideal place to stop and meditate.

Another place not to be missed for those who love the wild blue sea with unspoiled charm is Mangiabarche beach.

A little jewel in Calasetta nestled in the blue sea. A few outcropping rocks host the lighthouse that stands alone between fading sea and sky.Its job is to prevent, sometimes unsuccessfully, boats from getting stuck in the rocks.In fact, it is likely that its name is due to the fact that so many sailors have found their misfortune in this place.

Particularly fascinating, especially in winter, when the sea shows all its impetuous force with gigantic foamy waves that explode against the lighthouse.The unusual landscape and the light effects from the water make this place a must-see for anyone visiting the island of Sant’Antioco.
