Most people come to Sardinia for its beaches. Beaches of Iglesias. As they have some of the best beaches in the world, and there are so many, most with soft golden sand only 15 minutes drive to the nearest. But Sardinia is not just about beaches, the trekking in this region is unbelievable with so many trails to follow. Trekking and mountain biking has become very popular in San Benedetto with the trekking cottage right where its all happening, just open the door and your there. And if that’s not enough then try your hand at rock climbing, there are so many climbs close by. how to get to the trekking cottage apartment.

Iglesias is just 8 klm so easy to reach by bike and all downhill so a pleasant ride to Iglesias, but be warned the ride back can be gruelling as its all uphill, so if not an experienced bike rider it could seem tough. If you like adventure then you will find many trails to follow in the mountains above Iglesias, or there is narrow road that will take you to Casa Marganai. The ride back down is fun and very fast. At Casa Marganai there is a museum set in a botanical garden and a very peaceful place to visit.
