05. Portixeddu → Piscinas

Length: 16.2 km

Difference in altitude: uphill 462 m – downhill 467 m

Difficulty: medium

Duration: 5 hrs 30 min

Brief description

A fairly long stage which presents some modest difficulties due to the various uphill stretches and for the last 5 km of sandy bottom.

We encounter the characteristic morphology made up of  large  boulders and water carved rocks, typical of the granite rocks of this area.

Finally, particularly striking is the majestic dune system of Scivu-Piscinas, which suddenly appears after the lookout point of Capo Pecora.
