Holiday Park; On an island
The south-east area of the island, which is called the «Sarrabus», is made up of a stretch of granite mountains, which are part of the «Monts Sette Fratelli» mountain range, crossed by the «Flumendosa», one of the main rivers in Sardinia, where the mountains give way to a huge fertile plain, abounding in citrus fruits and running alongside kilometres of long, sandy beaches, from Costa Rei to Tertenia.
Porto Corallo (Villaputzu) is a small seaside resort in the province of Cagliari on the east coast of Sardinia, half way between the ports of Cagliari and of Arbatax (70 Kms).
It is a small harbour for pleasure boats, built recently between two sandy beaches.
It is a true paradise for nature lovers, for fanatics of all sorts of sailing, and it is highly reputed for the beauty of its sea beds and the quantity of fish to be found there: Porto Corallo is recommended therefore to underwater diving and fishing lovers.
