What to see in Muravera, itinerary including the main places of interest, including the Nuraghe Scalas archaeological site, as well as the most beautiful beaches, such as those of San Giovanni, Colostrai and Feraxi.
Town of the province of Southern Sardinia, Muravera is located at the foot of the Sarrabus mountains in the Flumendosa river valley, along the south-east coast of the island.
The territory where Muravera stands, inhabited since prehistoric times, preserves interesting archaeological evidence, such as that of Nuraghe Scalas, which is located on a dominant Muravera hill, in a beautiful panoramic position overlooking the sea of the Costa Rei, that of Piscina Rei, near the beach, and Cuili Piras.
The area is fertile and famous for the cultivation of citrus fruits, as well as for the variety of the still intact natural environment, consisting not only of the splendid sea, but also of the countryside, mountains and lagoons, in addition to the historic center, where the population is always linked to some traditional activities.
Here you can find artisan products such as honey, wine and typical sweets prepared for important holidays, such as that of Sant'Agostino, which takes place in late August, with a procession and dances in which groups in traditional costume take part.
The coastal part of Muravera extends mainly south of the inhabited center, where the long coast is characterized by beautiful and wide beaches of clear and fine sand, washed by clear waters, shaded in turquoise-green colors, with a shallow, sandy bottom and rich in marine fauna, and the presence of some rocks in the water which, in some places, create small natural pools.
Along the coast stretch the beaches of San Giovanni a Torre Salinas, Colostrai, Feraxi and the enchanting bay of the same name, the coves of Portu de s'Illixi, Cala sa Figu and the Bay of the amphorae, until reaching the rocky promontory of Capo Ferrato.
Further south are the beaches of Piscina Rei and Costa Rei, where the coast has a low and sandy coast, the longest on the east coast, up to the Peppino rock.
These beaches can be reached along the Panoramic Road on which the various access points are indicated.
