Today your trekking path will lead to a spectacular rock garden, where fantastic artworks have been shaped by natural elements, sculpting granite and mixing them with the colours of mediterranean maquis. This route, surely one of the most impressive in the island, starts at Capo Pecora and goes through a vast untouched seaside area up to the wild paradise of Scivu beach and its natural reserve.

The third day in south-west Sardinia will be devoted to exploring the inland, where to admire Murumannu and Piscina Irgas, the highest waterfalls of the island, set amongst forests and monumental granite canyons. The best seasons for this journey into the nature are spring and autumn, when waterfalls can show their scenographic power. Also in this area, the nature's art skills have created unique granite shapes and tiny canyons surrounding the path leading to Murumannu, a spectacular 70 mt waterfall, and then to the smaller Piscina Irgas waterfall; its waters create a natural pool where to enjoy pleasant refreshing moments.
