Sa Ruxi July 19, 2007

Sa Ruxi is the name of a beach in the south-east coast of Sardinia. A wonderful place with small strands of sand alternated with granite rocks emerging from the crystalline water.

To reach the beach one has to park the car a hundred meters above, and follow a uneasy path down through the bushes. But it’s worth it – the water has a wonderful set of tones of blue, and the trouble of reaching the place diverts most tourists to more accessible places nearby, making your stay there lonely and relaxed.

I knew Sardinia is a great place for a vacation on the beach, but for one reason or another I had never been able to visit it. After a few days here (and using previous experience in Croatia, Lampedusa, Greece, Formentera, and a few other very nice places on the coast), I can confidently say that the best beaches of our Mediterranean Sea have little to envy to the Caribbean. Sure, no coralline reef, a less diverse mixture of marine species, and a less exotic setting, but there definitely is beauty here too.

Here is an aerial view of the south-east coast of Sardinia:

The zone has many sandy beaches, as is evident from the color of the water. Below Filippo and Ilaria are walking on the bit of paradise where we spent this afternoon:

I watched the Giro d’Italia earlier this year starting on Sardinia and the stages along the coast really opened my eyes to the island beaches and coast.

Nice! I am jealous! Sitting in Germany right now, it’s raining cats and dogs. Nevertheless, woke up this morning and my organizer said: you have no events scheduled today🙂 Have a great weekend, Sabine

Hi Markk, you are right, the “Giro d’Italia” (a famous cyclistic competition being held once a year in Italy) does carry some cultural interest.

Bee, it has to rain somewhere in order for the weather to be so good down here. But I am sure you can find a way to use the indoor time there: since “An intellectual is a person that enters a library even if it’s not raining”, and you are one, I imagine you do have something to do if it is raining.

Enjoy your free time and relax!
Cheers,
T.
