A nice walk under the stars, in search of the “mermaids”

 

The guided cultural walk takes place in the wonderful setting of Porto Conte Natural Park.

The path follows the coast in the warm light of the sunset giving the opportunity to admire the bay, which is full of curiosities about history and nature. Then we arrive at the top of the white cliffs of Punta Giglio, where the light of the evening turns into the summer night: under the stars in a moonless sky and keeping a respectful silence, you wait for the attractive and frightening “voices” of legendary marine animals, arriving for a “love project”. Myths also identify them with the famous Ulysses’ mermaids.

To learn more about and to listen to these mysterious birds, coming in from the distance seas, please contact us at least 3 days before the guided walk.

It is a special night, bringing you into the wild and close to nature.
