Sardinia 2010 – Monte Pino (27th July)

Despite the fact that we liked being on Sardinia, on our last full day on the island we were already quite tired. And so, for this day we planned a little easier trip, short walk to (and around) Monte Pino. As always, we learnt about this hike in our favourite guidebook “Sardinia: Rother Walking Guite”, written by Mithra Omidvar. In the 3rd Czech issue of the book (from year 2003), this track is listed under number 45.

Since today’s hike was shorter, we set out from camp a little later, at 9:40. At first we went to the south to Olbia, got on the ring around the town and went to the west. We got off the highway on the 2nd exit and continued in the direction to Tempio Pausania. Read More (+GPS trace, GPS waypoints, elevation diagram) »

Sardinia 2010 – Serra Orrios, Cugnana (26th July)

Since our holiday was quickly coming to an end, we decided it was time to move to another camp – to our last one on Sardinia (at least for this year. We planned to move closer to Olbia, so that we had a short way to ferry port for our way back.

Packing took us some time, but just after ten we were on the road and driving to the north – from Santa Maria Navarrese / Tancau to SS 125 and then via Baunei and Dorgali to SS 131 d.c.n. highway. However, before getting on the highway, we made one minor stop – at Nuragic village of Serra Orrios. Read More »

Sardinia 2010 – Perda Longa (25th July)

Perda Longa is a famous rock monolith, located in Ogliastra province near the town of Baunei. There are two ways you can use to get there: 1) a road leading there from SS 125 near Baunei; 2) a beautiful path going there along the coast from Santa Maria Navarrese. Naturally, for our hike we used the second one.

Our camp in Tancau we left at 8:50. Way to the starting point was very short, since our today’s trip started once again on the square in Santa Maria Navarrese. There we arrived at 9 o’clock and immediately set out for the hike. At first we went along the via Perda Longa road and after about 700 meters we got to the narrow path, leading us along the coast to the north.

Sardinia 2010 – Cala Goloritzé (24th July)

The eighth (is it spelled like that?) day on Sardinia – trip to Cala Goloritzé. It’s a beautiful cove (with even more beautiful beach) located in province Ogliastra not too far from the town of Baunei. Not surprisingly, we learnt about this hike in our favourite guidebook “Sardinia: Rother Walking Guite”, written by Mithra Omidvar. In the 3rd Czech issue of the book (from year 2003), this track is listed under number 31.

We set out from the camp at about half past eight. We went via Santa Maria Navaresse to Baunei, where we left SS 125 and turned right to a steep road, that led us up to the Golgo Plateau. There we just followed the signs “Cala Goloritzé” and soon we got to the “Su Porteddu” parking place (and camping and restaurant) – starting point of our hike. (The track described in the guidebook starts even before Su Porteddu, but by parking your car here you can avoid walking a few hundred meters along the dusty road.)
