There is a group of hills close to the coast where history has left its mark, right from the Neolithic era with the important Domus de Janas (4000 BC), to the remains of monuments dating from the Nuragic period, which can still be seen today.

The diverse landscape is further characterised by small salt ponds which are inhabited by typical halophytic vegetation, including salt cedars and reeds that welcome and protect aquatic wildlife, such as small colonies of flamingos.
