Sardinia Adventure

Post by erinbastian » Fri Dec 20, 2013 7:25 am

Hi Guys,

Thought I would post up the video of my Sardinia Expedition.



Thanks for all the suggestions for an adventure earlier this year. This is what I came up with and had a great time.

cheers
Erin

Great video, nice soundtrack and even better trip! Looks like you had a great time despite the cyclone.
Thanks for sharing, it makes me want to fast-forward to my little Sardinia holiday end of May next year!

Superb trip and video, Erin!

Which bit of coast do you think was the best - or, if you had only 3 days paddling, which bit would you choose? (loaded question as we are thinking of going to Sardinia for mountain biking and kayaking, but nothing epic!).

thanks,
Lucy

Hi Lucy,

In my in my opinion the best day of paddling would be out of a smaller town called Buggeru on the South West Coasts, the cliffs and caves are some of the beast I have ever seen and an amazingly unique Port called port Flavia is built into the cliff edge. The water is clear and blue.

On the East Coast there is a section of cliffs and caves which are absolutely humungous. It is a relatively long stretch of coast with a few but not tones of places to stop. Between Arbatax and Cala Gonone. Calla Luna is along this stretch of coast and an amazing place to visit although very touristy in peak season.

The islands on the east coast, just off from Porto San Paolo (15mis south of Olbia). The island is call Isola Tavolara and is a spectacular towering ridge which comes strait out of the sea.

The NW corner is also stunning. great beaches, huge cliffs and amazing reef to explore if you have snorkels.

I hope this helps you with your paddling. It is a beautiful place and I would recommend it to anyone.
Enjoy your holidays.

Erin

try a place called cala gonone and up the coast towards the blue marinio showcave and beyond. some cracking sea cliffs and beaches. theres also places where you can hire sea kayaks but they tend to be a bit pricey. theres also some epic caving and canyoning. I've been twice and cant wait to go back. Dont forget to take snorkeling gear
