ROUTE DESCRIPTION

This ride lets us discover Marina di Tertenia’s splendid coastline with its succession of white sand beaches and rocks, including the lovely beach of Foxi Manna, dominated by the Aleri nuraghe, and the Sarrala coastline, with the interesting seventeenth Century Torre di San Giovanni.
 
                 
 
We set off from the Torre di San Giovanni along the littoral of Melisenda and ride down a tarmaced road to reach the main road which goes down to the south of the Marina di Barisoni where there is a small group of houses right by the sea. We continue on a good sterrato along the coast and then head inland between former farmsteads now used as sheepfolds and shelters for animals. Looking out for small groups of donkeys we reach a series of small dips and the abandoned building at Porto Santoru from whose small port boats once transported charcoal.
 
                 
 
We got back to the road we just left and continue south. With the perfume of the plants and the colours of the sea on the left and the granite rock formations on the right we start to climb up along the sterrato to arrive at a stopping place from which we can enjoy a lovely view over much of the Ogliastra littoral and the massifs of Monte Ferru and Monte Cartucceddu. From here we follow the same track back to the starting point.
