The story behind the image
Sardinia in Italy is one of the most beautiful places I’ve seen, ever. The island has got a lot in store for the visitor – from Calgari, its busy capital, and the remote cliffs of Costa Verda in the west to the moderate mountains in the center and stunning beaches in the east.
Driving by car along the southern coast will make you stop every so often that you seem to not make any progress, distance-wise. This, for example, is the view from the Strada Provinciale 71, a winded street that directly follows the coastline.
Here, the Mediterranean Sea presents itself in perfect turquoise, an open invitation for sailing yachts to throw out their anchor. In the back is the Torre di Porto Scudo, one of the many watch towers along the coast.
