The South-western coast is one of the most surprising areas of Sardinia. We’re talking about the Sulcis district, the most ancient earth crust of Italy, which came into being 600 million years ago, with its scenery moulded by the force of time and nature. Its long white or golden beaches alternate with tiny bays and rugged rock formations. High sand dunes and sheer cliffs frame its crystal clear sea. There are magical sea depths to tempt divers looking for natural spectacles or archaeological remains The forest of Pixina Manna with its mountain sanctuary and waterfall with natural pool, or the nature reserve of Is Cannoneris, home to the Sardinian deer and the golden eagle. The elegant pink flamingo of the lagoons and karst caves with their underground lakes. The prehistoric fortresses such as the nuraghe of Santa Margherita, the ancient Spanish watch towers dotting the coast, the archaeological city set on the sea at Nora built in turn by the Carthaginians, Phoenicians and Romans, the quarter of Castello in Cagliari with its museums. Its ancient food and wine traditions, handicrafts, religious and folklore festivals. Timeless emotions and ever new discoveries.
The amazement of being just a step away from authentic natural beauties.
A nature park just a few km from the Relais, in the area of Domus de Maria. On request, we can arrange for guided tours illustrating its natural wonders and native wildlife including deer, wild boar and other animals typical of the Mediterranean brush land.
Its long, fabulous beach has become a legend worldwide. Every day a shuttle bus links Is Morus to this corner of Paradise just a 10-minute drive from our resort. What is more, Is Morus organises schooner tours to introduce you to the beautiful coast, including the magnificent beach of Tuerredda – a chance to relax on board and also enjoy a tasty lunch.
A passion going back for centuries
The territory of Southern Sardinia has its roots set back in the centuries thanks to its favourable position in the Med. The hub and meeting point of all these cultures has produced a truly unique artistic style, and the guests of the Is Morus Relais will be able to appreciate all this thanks to the nearby places to visit, such as the small town of Pula, a well-known tourist centre with a number of fine handicraft shops.
