Sa Ruxi July 19, 2007Posted by dorigo in personal, travel.
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.

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:
