Piscinas is a part of the western coastal region of Arbus. The area is known for its Sahara-like “deserts”, shaped by the French mistral winds. Piscinas’ sand dunes are one of the highest in Europe, reaching up to 60 metres. The vegetation here, such as juniper and marram grass, is salt resistant. The hills near Piscinas home foxes, rabbits, hawksbill sea turtles and Sardinian partridges. Beyond the dunes you’ll find a crystal clear blue sea. The area, also known as the Costa Verde, hasn’t been tainted by mass tourism yet.
