We’re heading on from Cagliari now, destined for the old walled city of Alghero in the North East.
On route we’re heading to a series of little villages and towns to soak up the Sardinian scenery.
One such town is Portixeddu, a tiny tourist town in the Province of South Sardinia.
The pretty beach is a postcard perfect scene early in the morning with not another soul to be seen except a fisherman setting up his rod and line.
The unspoilt swathe of golden sand is backed by remote green hills and off season it is a haven of peace and tranquillity.
It’s a far cry from the summer months when hordes of visitors descend to enjoy the natural beauty of this little town.
