ISOLA S. PIETRO

GREEN AS THE MYRTLE, BLUE AS THE SEA

A trekking day, walking through paths, Mediterranean scrub and rocks, with a final plunge into the clear seawater.


TT0102

On the steep cliffs of the west coast of the San Pietro island, where the Peregrine Hawk has found his habitat building his nest during spring and summer coming from the Madagascar. These incredible birds of prey plunge directly into the sea to catch the fishes for their children to prepare them for the long travel back to Africa.

SHORT DESCRIPTION OF THE TOUR

Moving from the Becco site, we will pass through the abandoned mine of manganese and ochre. We will see the remains of an old and flourishing human activity that, not so far in time, was fully productive. We will then pass through Capo Rosso that will lead us to Capo Sandalo and finally, passing by the lighthouse, we will arrive to Cala Fico where you may have a swim in these fresh and crystalline waters, otherwise if you prefer, you may have a lunch at the kiosk or maybe, if your interests are of geological kind, a short visit to the Commenditi site (geological formation renewed all over the academic world) will be the best choice. As conclusion of the day, a birdwatching activity with a specialised local guide.
