TAVOLARA Hiking Experience

Tavolara is a small island off the northeastern coast of Sardinia, Italy, with beautiful, steep cliffs and emerald waters. Its highest point, Monte Cannone, is 565 metres above sea level, and it’s famous for its hiking experience. The view from the top is among the most spectacular things to see in Sardinia!

This hike in particular was challenging but doable. We completed it in 4 hours. It is recommended that you start early in the morning as it gets very hot during the summer. We started going up at 7:30 am. Starting the trekking route from Spalmatore di Terra beach (reached from Puntaldia port in a few minutes by boat or dinghy), the climb is both magical and thrilling all the way to the top where you view the entire coastal area up to the distant peaks of the South of Corsica.

When we travel, we usually try to find experiences like this. It makes the trip more holistic, magical and active. Not only does it help you stay active, it reinforces your connection with nature and makes the post-trekking pasta even more enjoyable! Speaking of pasta, we found some Wild White Thyme on the way to the top and brought some back to make a very simple pasta recipe. Be careful though and don’t use too muchof it as it’s stronger than regular thyme. 

There is some steep trekking at the beginning, and as you move up the route becomes a little bit more difficult, involving some basic rock climbing sections for which you have to be equipped with all the necessary equipment and accompanied by a professional guide. We booked our guide through Natalibera, they book diving, trekking and mountain biking excursions in Sardinia. 

When you get back to the bottom, there is a small beach where you can enjoy a post excursion dip in emerald pool-like water. There are also a couple of nice places where you can grab something to eat. My favorite restaurant: Corona.
