The Cabras Pond

The beating heart of the Sinis is its basin. This is a marshy environment that is one of the Italy’s and Europe’s most important for the wealth of its wildlife. The basin is a few kilometres from the sea (to which it is connected by a channel) and extends for nearly 2,300 hectares, lining the village of Cabras that since ancient times drew sustenance from it thanks to fishing.

Birdwatching from Dimora Laguna

From the terrace of Dimora Laguna, we have identified three visual cones in which you have the greatest chance of watching local species. Only during specific hours of the day is it possible to observe the birdlife depending on the changing seasons.
The best times are early morning and late afternoon, the best time for fishing.
While in the breeding season it is possible to see real shows staged by the male specimens. 
Guided excursions through the territory can be done with the expert environmental guides of our partner Alea

Sinis Beaches

The Giants of Monteprama

Although the origin of the toponym “Monte Prama” is uncertain, a confirmed thesis mentions the historical presence of a dwarf palm; a species that is now considered almost extinct.


The site of Tharros is one of the most famous destinations of archaeological tourism in Sardinia and one of the most beautiful landscapes in the Mediterranean.


Santu Srabadoi (in Sardinian language) is the largest temporary religious village in Sardinia.


San Giovanni di Sinis is a hamlet of Cabras, located south of the Sinis peninsula.

Peschiera e’ Mari e’ Pontis

Until about thirty years ago, in the Cabras pond, there were four fishponds: “ Mar’ e Pontis”, “Pischeredda”, “Su Pottu”; and  “Sa Madrini”.

Religious Feasts and Festivals


The objective of the marine protected area is to maintain a balance between the preservation of the marine and coastal environment and development. The Sinis, thanks to the criteria of environmental protection, is
the ideal place for hiking and walking in the openair: the flora, remained intact and wild, home to rare wildlife
species such as flamingos, cormorants, turtles caretta-caretta, foxes and many others. 
No less interesting is the underwater part. In fact, there are countless stretches of sea with surprising depths, ideal for snorkeling.
