Wild and historical: northern Costa Rei

Capo Ferrato is situated on the northern tip of Costa Rei – and it’s a lot quieter here than in the centre. With its old lighthouse dating back to 1925, the 50-metre-high rock can be reached via a rocky road. From here, visitors can enjoy breathtaking views over the sea. The wild, untouched surroundings will delight everyone who wants to exhale and discover something truly special. For instance Nuraghe Is Scalas – home to over 40 menhirs from the Neolithic period that form an impressive archaeological site.
