Continue to the island of Carloforte, a former genovese colony where, even today, the ligurian traditions including the genoese dialect and the tuna fishing are very much alive. Here you can visit the small urban center with its promenade and go around the island, enjoying fabulous sea views. Once back on land, continue in the direction of Masua through the entire province of Sulcis-Iglesiente, a mining area rich in abandoned quarries, currently among the poorest of the island. Once in Masua, along the coast you will be amazed to see a huge sea stack in the middle of the sea, it is the "Pan di Zucchero", name due to the very clear color of the rock of which it is composed. We recommend a guided tour of Porto Flavia, a mine overlooking the sea that will leave you speechless. After a quick lunch, reach Portu Maga for the night. But the surprises of the day are not over yet because you are within walking distance of Piscinas, the largest natural desert in Europe. With its high white sand dunes overlooking a crystalline sea is one of the most magical places on the island. Do not worry, being disoriented is the least that can happen to you!

In the afternoon you will experience one of the highlights of your trip by driving along the coast that will lead you to Alghero, the capital of Riviera del corallo. The coastal Alghero-Bosa, candidate to become Unesco heritage, is considered one of the most beautiful roads in the world. 53 Km of curves that run along the stretch of sea that joins the Nurra to Logudoro will hit you, as well as the quality of the route also driven by its scents and colors. Once you arrive in Alghero you will have a breathtaking aperitif at the Riservato Beach Bar. Only after watching the sun set over the sea, immerse yourself in the narrow streets of the old town where you will have a wide choice of typical restaurants, among these we recommend "La bifora", located on the ramparts that dominate the marina.

Day 6)Alghero-Olbia - 239km

Head towards the promontory of Capocaccia from which you can visit the beautiful belvedere overlooking the island "Foradada" to the west, and the bay of Porto Conte to the east. From here you can also enjoy the suggestive skyline of the fortified city of Alghero. Continue north towards Stintino where you can visit the beach "La pelosa", considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world for its crystal clear water and its fine sand. The next stop is Castelsardo: cross the pine forest of Marina di Sorso and then the coastal road that leads to the beautiful medieval village; we recommend a visit to the castle and a lunch at the restaurant "L'incantu" accompanied by the splendid view that characterizes it.
