A ride along the Coral Coast offers visitors the opportunity to explore one of the most beautiful coastlines of northern Sardinia. As the name suggests, the Coral Coast – in Italian “Riviera del Corallo” – is enriched by the presence of red coral, fished since the Roman time and slowly become a primary resource for the area. In fact, today this region is widely renown as an important centre for coral trade in the whole Sardinia.
Active Sardinia’s tours are conceived to make you discovering the region and its capital, Alghero, also known as ‘Barceloneta’ since it can be truly considered a corner of Spain in Sardinia (in fact, locals speak the Catalan dialect). Amazing single-tracks, beautiful crossings, breathtaking views are only few aspects of the tours, whose pathways cross the narrow streets of the old town and overlook the panorama from the outer walls of Alghero at sunset.
This experience allows visitors to explore the regions of Nurra and Anglona and their most attractive places. Some snapshot?
