    Well, now you’re just pandering 🙂
    What kind of wildlife is there? Any big animals?

    I think you’ll need to write a new blog to explain us how pronounce Cooky-dorza like a Sardinian 🙂

  3. Stunning! As much as I love the beach I also love the lakes and surrounding areas. Have you been to Lago Coghinas? My dad grew up in the area…it’s breathtaking! People need to see these place…not just the beaches in Sardinia!

    • You’re right! Too many people never leave Sardinia’s coastline, there is so much to offer and see on the interior. I’ve been to Lago Coghinas and it’s just as lovely! This fall/winter I’m making it a point to visit the interior of the island more.

      If you happen to pass by the lake again, through a pebble in the water and tell it it’s from me…it knows who I am.!!!!

  4. Looks like a gorgeous place!

    Hugs from Ecuador,
