Budoni

Overview

Relics of the past and wonders of nature

Arriving from San Teodoro, you can discover the historic region called Baronie, which developed almost entirely in the north-eastern part of the province of Nuoro, with the sole exception of the municipality of Budoni, which is located in the province of Sassari. The entire coast of Budoni belongs to the Tavolara Island Marine Protected Area.

This town, a popular destination on the island, traces its roots back to the Neolithic period, with the development of the population and territory facilitated by the proximity of the Salamaghe river, which provided water resources both for humans and for the development of agriculture. The construction of the first Domus de Janas, ancient rudimentary stone tombs that you can view here, dates from this historical period. Later nuragic formations, such as the nuraghe of San Pietro, one of the most important prehistoric monuments in the region, are found in the nearby town of Torpè.

Budoni Bay, the main beach in the area, extending 4 kilometres in length, is also one of the most popular and definitely worth a visit, together with the Sant'Anna Ponds, a unique ecosystem inhabited by tortoises, flamingos, ospreys, mackerel and mullet. For a tasty break to enjoy typical products, among the delights to sample, you absolutely must not miss the seadas or the porceddu.
