The volcanic activity of the massif of Montiferru provided the raw material, creating the plateau. The waves of the sea and the current of the Mannu river, which flows here, have shaped its features. Punta Foghe is the spectacular result of thousands of years of erosion patiently carried out by nature: the plateau ends in a precipice overlooking the sea, creating an impressive rocky cliff, with islets and little coves that enhance its appearance. It is also the river that makes the scenery unique. Before flowing into the sea, it ‘swerves’ to the south, unable to erode the basalt of the cliff. Between the last stretch of the river and the sea, there is a bed of pebbles, which partially emerges, creating a distinctive barrier.
