Author: Luca Frau

Costa Rei is a tourist resort of the Muravera municipality in the southern-east Sardinia. It was founded at the end of seventies by a group of foreign contractors and, over the years, has become famous thank to its gorgeous coastline and to the pureness of its seas.

Costa Rei has one of the longer sandy beach of the whole southern Sardinia (about 8 kilometres). Thanks to this feature it is never overcrowded also during the high summer season. The sea is really impressive for its transparency and for the colors changing from sky blue to dark blue. The sea water slopes down gently and allows to the children to have a bath in complete safety.

The surroundings are characterized by a lush nature with its typical Mediterranean features. The Mediterranean bushes offer colors and perfumes very intense creating a suggestive ambience ideal for a nature holiday.

This territory preserves traces of a very ancient past dating back to the Nuragic era. The natural environment is the perfect habitat for genuine vegetables and fruits cultivations. Small farms produce tasty cheeses, fragrant honeys and liqueurs made with natural berries. The wine tradition is mostly based on cannonau grapes that find here the perfect environment for a quality wine making. The features of the red wine obtained by cannonau grapes are a intense perfume and a generous alcohol content.

The typical cuisine is based on genuine products and on fresh fish reared or caught locally. The holiday farms and the restaurants prepare the traditional recipes or tasty mixed grills with meat or fish served with the typical Sardinian wines.

On top Costa Rei offers the possibility to practice several sport activities according to the individual preferences. The sea sports such as windsurfing, canoeing, kite surfing and snorkelling allow to enjoy the beauty of the coast. Other sports such as mountain biking, trekking and horse back excursions are perfect to appreciate the surrounding nature.

Visitors may find locally all the main services, shops and restaurants. This feature helps to ensure a comfortable and relaxing stay and makes Costa Rei the right place also for a stay without a car.
