The Marina faces the flat lands of Sarrala and is hidden away behind the mountains of  Punta Cartucceddu and Monte Ferru ( where you can get a fantastic view of the whole coast line).

Driving  by the mountains that encircle this Mediterranean beauty doesn't give away anything about what lays beyond.

Whether you coming from the North or South, the road to be on is the SS 125 Orientale Sarda. The crossroads for the Marina di Tertenia  approximately faces the town of Tertenia.

The windy roads that lead to these wonderful Mediterranean beaches is about 10 km, You can't go wrong, there's only one road, until you reach a fork in the road...

Left-->North ...leads to the Foxi Manna beach

Right-->South... leads to St John's Tower and the beaches of Foxi'e Murdegu  (also known as Meliseda) and the Barisone beach.

The Foxi Manna beach is a sandy stretch. The last time I went this year, the waters were a little choppy and there was quite a breeze , to the delight of the wind surfer lover's. I have been on other occasions and found the sea just like a mill pond... which is what I consider perfect conditions! The waters are quite shallow, one of the reasons that kids never seem to want to come out.

The Foxi'e Murdegu beach has pretty much the same characteristics.

Heading towards the South the coast line tends to get more rural, quite rocky with occasional  inlets and cliffs, until  we come to the pebbly beach of Barisone.

Personally not my cup of tea but then again you don't have to worry about getting sand stuck to your feet.

The flat land of Sarrala is certainly a traditional Sardinian rural  setting.

What will you find?

The Foxi Manna Beach

The first thing you'll notice is;  all the small villas scattered in and there, many of which are still in construction.  

Years ago these lands were hard to give away, where as these days having a piece of land to build a cozy holiday home  is a luxury.

Something that is not unheard of here, is the construction of houses without planning permission hence why many houses are unfinished and probably will remain so for a long time.

I have to admit that this does make a beautiful picturesque setting look a little ugly, but that's how it is and where ever you go you will encounter it.

There are of course bars, restaurants and pizzeria's, a supermarket opens up especially for the summer season. Once a week on Saturday mornings in the summer a market place is set up, in front of the entrance to the Foxi Manna beach.

The charming Hotel Janas is well worth a visit.

Antonio and Anna a wonderful couple that run this stylish Sardinian accommodation, welcome you for delightful meals that have some really fantastic prices or even for a drink or ice cream at the bar... you don't have to be guests...everyone is welcome!

If you do go, don't be shy to ask to have a look around, just tell them Susanna gave you the tip off!

On the whole the Sarrala is a quiet and peaceful Mediterranean location, if relax is your ideal Sardinia holidays, you will not go wrong here.
