Discover Wildlife

The fauna of Sardinia is more discreet than the flora, but if you are lucky (and have good binoculars), you might catch a glimpse of the vultures nestled in the cliffs between Alghero and Bosa. Otherwise, the road which runs along this part of the coast is another place worth exploring where you will probably come across cows grazing on incredible pastureland: areas of grass like pocket handkerchiefs that drop sharply into the sea.

The landscapes in the centre of the island are pastoral and largely populated with sheep, among other things, with agritourism playing a major role here.

Tortoises are not exactly the most common sight here but some of the hotels have nevertheless made the animal their mascot.
