If you've come to Sardinia in search of untrammeled wilderness and sweeping sands as far as the eye can see, this deserted coast is the place to find them. Hidden away in the forgotten southwest corner of Cagliari province, the Costa Verde, or Green Coast, is accessible only by a bumpy, unpaved track. The effort is worth it. The dune-backed sands shelter rare grasses and birdlife, and the area offers magnificent swimming in stretches of beach that seem endless.
