A large expanse of fine golden sand, two kilometres long, delimited by a cliff dotted with Mediterranean greenery, which you can reach via a downhill path, dug out of the reddish rock, demarcating the sandy shore. Marina di Arbus, is a symbol of the Costa Verde and it is about 25 kilometres from the town of Arbus. The water is crystal clear and blue, but its colours are often iridescent due to the refraction of the light on the seabed, which slopes gently, making it safe for children to play there.
The melody of colours, made up of the blue of the sea and the deep green of the broom, strawberry trees, myrtle and juniper, which cover the dunes behind it, often lead to it being referred to as the 'Caribbean in Sardinia'. The windswept beach is a popular destination for surfing enthusiasts and also for those who enjoy underwater fishing or snorkelling.
The Costa Verde sea is spectacular and wild. The sand dunes are a characteristic of the whole territory of Arbus, which has three pearls symbolizing Sardinia: Torre dei Corsari, a haven shaped by the wind, Piscinas, a sandy desert washed by the emerald green sea, and the 'talking' beach of Scivu (due to the sound made by the sand when you walk upon it). Other wonders of Arbus are Funtanazza and Portu Maga. At the southernmost limits of the Costa Verde, you will find the spectacular Capo Pecora, a popular destination for scuba divers and fishermen. On the northern border of the Arbus coast lie the two kilometres of Sabbie d'Oro (Golden Sands) of Pistis. While, just behind the shoreline, you can travel back in time, into the industrial archaeology represented by the evocative mines and mining villages of Ingurtosu and Montevecchio.
