The sea

At eight kilometres from the Sinis Peninsula there is the island of Mal di Ventre, surrounded by the emerald and transparent sea.

Stood on granite and helped by the erosion of the sea there is a sand composed of grains of white, pink and light blue quartz which characterizes most of Sinis beaches.

Mal di Ventre with its white beaches and its Mediterranean bush is an ideal environment for the wild rabbits and a perfect habitat for seagulls and birds who find in its vegetation an ideal place to nest.

St. Giovanni in Sinis is a small village of fishermen and it is characterized by the homonymous ancient Christian church of the 6th century with three naves completed between the 9th and the 11th century. Proceeding towards Cape St. Marco we find the remains of one of the biggest Phoenician Carthaginian towns in Sardegna, Tharros. Tharros was a Phoenician stronghold in the 8th century and it was used later by the Carthaginians in the 6th century as naval base for the trade of products in the Mediterranean sea. In 238 B.C. Tharros passed under the Roman dominion which continued until the 12th century. We can admire all the splendour of the remains of the town, brought to light in the 50’s / 60’s, surrounded by the landscape frame.
