What are we going to do

This hike that starts from nearby the beach, will take us for the first half along the coast, passing by Sa perda stampada. As the name itself defines it, Sa perda (or rutta) stampada is a rock with a large hole, located about 200 m above sea level through which you can admire the fantastic scenery of the Coccorrocci beach. We will walk along a loop path around Punta Cartucceddu, passing by the rock called Su Brecconi, Foxi Manna and then past the famous Piscinas de Coccorrocci, a series of small pools carved by the erosion process of the stream in the red porphyry rocks in which it is pleasant to cool off during the hot season.
A whole day walking with a local guide during which you will relax surrounded by nature, will learn about the history of the area, the flora, fauna and geology.
The perfect opportunity to spend Easter Monday in an educational and active way.

Excellent experience in the Pedralonga hike!! Totally recommended.

Gianfranco is the best tour guide you can have for this kind of hikes, nice chat and knowledge of every places since he is local.

I did a hike with Gianfranco last year in September and it was absolutely great! We discovered the beautiful landscape of Sardinias mountains. Gianfrancos knowledge about hiking, nature and secret beaches, which are reachable by hiking only, is very admirable. I felt safe and entertained the whole time. So, whenever I will be in Sardinia, especially in Tortoli again, hiking with Gianfranco is definitely on my bucket list! :-)
