The story behind the image

Here’s another shot of the exciting south coast of Sardinia in Italy: Punta Menga, situated about 6 km south-west of Sant’ Anna Arresi close to the village of Porto Pino.

The village has a beautiful, long, white beach, and it must be nice to stay there for a couple of days, but we thought that the cliffs of Punta Menga and Punta Tonnaro were even more interesting with the clear water of the Mediterranean Sea right below us.

A short drive through a pine wood (the Pineta di Candiani) gets you to a small restaurant and the parking lot. After a short walk you’ll get to the cliffs and several splendid views. I took this image near the Grotta dei Baci (literally the Grotto of Kisses). Awesome.
