Island of San Pietro

Island of San Pietro

Island of San Pietro (Isola di San Pietro) is located off the coast of Sulcis, in the southwest of Sardinia which makes it a perfect day trip from Cagliari. The island can be reached by ferry from Calasetta and takes about 30-40 minutes. But be aware the public transport can be a mess and you never know when the bus arrives, but, it will be worth the trouble. The island offers amazing surroundings and beautiful beaches around the attractive coast - some even call this island ”a piece of heaven".

Do & See

Spiaggia Mare Pintau

With only 20 minutes by car you can reach this amazing beach. The car ride itself will be an experience due to amazing roads with the most spectacular views ever. There are no restaurants and bars by the beach so you probably need to bring along some food and drinks. Also good to know, the beach is not sandy but a little rocky and can be difficult to reach when climbing down from the hills, however it will be worth it because the colour of the sea is astonishing.

Diving and Snorkeling

Sardinia is the ideal place to practice diving and snorkelling due to the crystal clear sea and the 1849 kilometres of coastline. Here you can still enjoy breathtaking unspoilt nature under the water with sea-beds rich in relicts and fish. There are plenty of authorized diving centres to choose from. One of them is Morgan Diving that also provides excursions for the whole family to the protected Marine Park of Villasimius with the opportunity of snorkelling.
