i'm just back after a really great holiday in Sardinia :)
Capo Caccia is situated a few kilometres from Alghero, on the southern point of a huge limestone triangle that wedges out into the sea. There are characteristic, impressive cliffs (nearly 300 m high) on its west side.
Capo Caccia is renowned for the underground labyrinth of mysterious caves discovered in 1700. The most famous one is Grotta di Nettuno (2500 m long) that can be reached by sea or on ground climbing the 656 steps of Escala del Cabirol that lead to the cave. There is a beautiful transparent lake (La Marmora) with two small sandy beaches just at its entrance.
Capo Caccia is one of the wildest places in Sardinia. Inland, there is an extraordinary natural reserve established by Italian Botanic Association in 1970 and covering nearly three thousand hectares. It's a marvellous garden full of plants unique to the world. Capo Caccia is frequented by big birds of prey. Many of them are quite rare in other parts of the world.
Capo Caccia is the perfect place for diving enthusiasts - there are about 20 different immersion points accessible thanks to scuba diving guides. The sea water is crystal-clear and the submerged caves are full of colourful fish and sea plants including red corral. Most of the underwater excursions are accessible by everybody and the average depth is 25 meters. Some of them are reserved only for the most expert scuba divers.
Megdöbbentő ez a szikla, és nagyon jók a kép színei!
Szia, Melinda! Örülök hogy hosszú idő után ismét láthatom munkádat! Jól eltűntél. Utoljára, Málta és Gozo partjainál láttam ilyen félelmetes sziklákat. Lenyűgöző a fotód. Szia, Péter.
Fantasztikus színek, remek kompozíció!
Üdv.: Mádi József
