A cycling holiday along Sardinia’s wonderful south west coast. Enjoy crystal clear waters, white sand beaches, impressive rugged landscapes, ancient ruins, secluded villages and wildlife wetlands. A cycling holiday for beach and nature lovers with plenty of culture thrown in too.
Cycling the south west of the island is certainly a colourful experience. The white, almost salt-like sand contrasting with the deep blue water. Then further inland you have green rugged countryside and hills dotted with ancient villages, olive groves and vineyards as well as the wetlands of the Sinis Peninsula and their inhabitants the flamingos.
