The Pirate and the Mermaid (kayak)


The route embraces the whole western side of the Park of Porto Conte and the marine protected area of Capo Caccia. A tour that reaches some of the landmarks and the most charming district of Alghero. Here the nature blends the charm of history: the stories and legends of pirates that, in the past centuries, infested the sea around Sardinia and in particular to Capo Caccia, an area full of inlets and natural coves, but also of the boats that brought ashore the precious coral, really a “red gold”.
The stories of pirates merge with legends, like those of beautiful sirens darting on the surface of the sea. Probably dolphins, mammals that even today it is frequent to meet while you paddle on this sea turquoise.
The kayaking route starts from the sheltered bay of Tramariglio and goes on  the western side of the large fjord Porto Conte allowing you to enjoy beautiful places like the Tower of Tramariglio, natural pools of Cala Dragunara, the Bollo Tower, the Green Cave, the cliffs of Capo Caccia, the island with its beautiful Foradada Tunnel, Cala Inferno, and then to Cala Puntetta and the Piana Island.

Route: easy and enjoyable, suitable for both amateur and experienced paddlers.

Distance: about 22 km (11.8 nautical miles) round trip, for about 6 hours and a half trip with lunch break at Cala Inferno.
