Just 3 km from Stintino, neighbor of La Pelosa, we find the beautiful beach of Le Saline (The Saltworks). As understood by its name, this beach if located beside a natural saltworks. With respect to La Pelosa it is certainly quieter. Less a place for those who prefer frequented, the beach of le Saline, represents a very good alternative to chaos, since renounce all that features accustomed to find on many beaches of Sardinia
Here the sea is clear and blue turquoise. The white stones forming sand are like small grains of rice that have been created patiently for years by the wind and nature, and make this beach an even more interesting and special place. Unfortunately, the photos do not do justice to the beauty of the place. That day there were clouds and light was not the best. My purpose (and I say this with great sacrifice), is returning soon to the beach and take new pictures to add to the blog! 😉
Las Salinas already existed in the thirteenth century and were long exploited by the monks of Santa Maria di Tergu.
