The strategic location of Solanas, on the coastal road SP17 and a few kilometres from the SS125 var, allows you to reach easily the most beautiful beaches in Southern Sardinia. On the west it’s easy to admire the Gulf of Angels, which stretches from Capo Carbonara to Capo Teulada, rich of charming coves as Mari Pintau, long beaches, such as Poetto or Chia, and enjoy the breath-taking views from the coastal road. The motorbike is the chosen way to drive through the tight bends and, especially if enduro, the quickest way to reach the many coves. Along the SP17 and towards east, you can reach within ten minutes Villasimius and the Marine Protected Area of Capo Carbonara, which has been awarded with the Certificate of Excellence 2014 on Trip Advisor. The protected area offers a marina, a diving centre and other services and events. Proceeding towards East you can admire, among the rest, the beaches of Porto Giunco and Punta Molentis, among the most beautiful ones in the area. Among the many services the famous holiday resort of Villasimius can offer, like the rich nightlife with pubs and nightclubs, and a wide selection of restaurants and excellent agritourism, you should definitively try the experience of pesca turismo (fishing-tourism), which offers you the possibility to snorkel, plunge into the pristine sea and eat your fish fresh off the hook on the boat. Drive further through the SS125 var for a dozen kilometres and you’ll reach the Sarrabus, where the country’s dialect changes, the landscape becomes wilder and the long beaches, such as Feraxi, are almost deserted even in August, giving the impression of being landed into another region. The annual celebration of rural festivals, including the Festival of Citrus Rei, the presence of local producers of honey, liqueurs and jams, the Cantina of Castiadas, whose territoriality and custom production has earned several awards at Vinitaly and IWSC , and the fish pond Feraxi, makes this district the ideal place for sightseeing lovers and those who want to enjoy food and wine products now exported all over the world. Everything is just a few minutes from the beaches of Costa Rei, Calasinzias and the marina of Porto Corallo.
