This is how holiday rental owners described Marina Di Sorso
Sorso is a ...
show more town with about 15,000 inhabitants situated in the north-west of Sardinia, behind the Gulf of Asinara, just a short distance from the sea and a few kilometres from Sassari, the main town in the Province. It stands in a geographical sub-region known as Romangia. Its territory offers a variety of opportunities for visitors to enjoy thanks to the flavours and fragrances of the seasons, the ancient streets of the centre, the countryside and the enchanting coastal area. Visitors are always given a warm welcome by the hard-working population that jealously and proudly protects the historical, cultural and linguistic heritage that has been handed down through the generations. Sorso and its people are famous and appreciated, even beyond the boundaries of Sardinia, for their simple farming culture and their strong sense of hospitality.
WATER AND EARTH
Situated in the centre of a natural amphitheatre between Porto Torres and Castelsardo, the town of Sorso overlooks the Gulf of Asinara and the island of the same name that, thanks to its natural heritage, has been a national park since 1997.
The area around Sorso is either entirely flat or hilly. Panoramic views from its hills are truly breathtaking at any time of year. The sea in the gulf, well-cultivated fields and a costal strip with a pinewood offer a variety of colours, in which the greens of the vineyards, olive groves and pines dominate.
The coast between Porto Torres and Castelsardo is bound by the Stagno di Platamona to the west and Punta Tramontana to the east and runs for 18 kilometres of mainly white sandy beaches, persistent Mediterranean vegetation and dozens of hectares of green pinewoods and juniper thickets that drop to the sea. Also along the coastal strips are large, fairly characteristic sand dunes that drop to the sea and are called “pettini” (combs). These end in large squares or short seafronts lined with numerous tourist facilities such as hotels, holiday villages, campsites, restaurants and bars and bathing establishments. Safe bathing in the waters off the coast is guaranteed thanks to fairly shallow, sandy sea beds, although there are fascinating deeper areas for diving enthusiasts. For fun days out, there are also a number of beaches with facilities and a fantastic water park.
Sorso Marina is famous for surf-casting, favoured by the abundance of fish in the Gulf of Asinara, populated by giltheads, amberjacks, mullets and bass. The pinewood that extends behind the large dune area was planted in the 1950s and now includes numerous other endemic plant species, such as age-old junipers (Juniperus phoenicea and Juniperus oxicedrus) with their characteristic fragrance.
Parallel to the coast, the Stagno di Platamona stretches for 95 hectares. Elongated in shape, it is separated from the sea by a long strip of pinewood. The pond’s name derives from the Greek-Byzantine place name for the area that means “flat surface”. It is a pond-lagoon that was once connected to the sea, but is now fed by the Rio Buddi Buddi and Rio Pedrugnanu. Typically situated behind the dunes, it has shallow waters with low salinity and is populated by eels and carp. The marshy area has surprisingly lush flora that consists in various bands of vegetation, including cane thickets, reed beds, rushes and juniper thickets that envelope the perimeter. It also has rare marshland plants like black bogrush (Schoenus nigricans) and Ravenna grass (Erianthus ravennare) and other plant species endemic to Sardinia and Corsica, including woolly safflower and succulent campion.
One of the riches of the Stagno di Platamona are the wealth of birds, both migratory and other, that nest here, some of which are rare and at risk of extinction. In fact, the pond’s cane thickets are the ideal habitat for various migratory and non-migratory ornithological species such as coots, mallards, grebes, marsh harriers, grey egrets and little egrets, pintails, red-crested pochards and above all, purple swamphens that have a small colony in the dense cane thicket. Thanks to its particular characteristics, the area near the pond has been recognised as a nature reserve and has been included on the list of European Community Sites of Interest.
