Transfer or independent arrival to Buggerru, in the South West of the island.

2nd day: Cala Domestica (12 km/4h)
You start on a high! From the sleepy mining village of Buggerru, a trail rises to a limestone plateau above dramatic coastline and reaches Cala Domestica, one of the most picturesque bays of southern Sardinia. Return to the village following an inland trail through hills covered in Mediterranean macchia.

3rd day: Capo Pecora (16 km/5½h)
After a short transfer to the seaside village of Portixeddu, you start walking towards the headland of Capo Pecora with its coarse, lightcoloured sand beaches, flanked by steep cliffs that plunge into the sea. The routes continues along sceneries of rare beauty to reach la Vedetta, a small WWII fort, where you can enjoy the view of the long wild sandy beach of Scivu and the Costa Verde in the background. Your base tonight is a lovely agriturismo serving fresh local food.

4th day: Antas (14 km/3½h)
The route starts from the suggestive Punic and Roman temple of Antas (Fluminimaggiore) heading North towards the caves of "Su Mannau", where ancient Sardinian populations practised their water cults.

Today you are free to explore Piscinas, famous for its celebrated sand dunes, among the highest in Europe. Some dunes are covered by the Mediterranean scrub, others still alive and modelled by the mistral, the prevailing wind in this part of the island. It is not uncommon to spot Sardinian deer coming out of the bush at sunset.
