Baia delle Ninfe, Mugoni

Beyond the promontory of Punta Giglio, the panorama opens out to reveal the tranquil majesty of the gigantic bay of Porto Conte, the only natural harbour on the island of Sardinia.

 

The area, characterised by the almost unreal immobility of the water, is closed off to the north by the massive bulk of Capo Caccia and plays host to more than 300 caves – some above ground, others under water – that include a number of the largest caves in the Mediterranean.

 

Here you will be enraptured by the exceptional peace and quiet of what is one of this section of the coastline’s most celebrated beaches – called Mugoni – where dolphins are wont to play just a few yards from the shore. Indeed, such is the fame of this beach that it was cited in Ptolemy’s Geography, where it is referred to as "Nymphaeus Portus".

 

Surrounded by an enormous pine forest, the Baia delle Ninfe ("Bay of Nymphs") will impress you with its ivory-white sands, its particularly mild climate and its shallow seabed.
