Rock and sea in the same day: enjoy the best of both in south-west Sardinia
Of all the areas in Sardinia offering good climbing, the south-west is the closest to airport and ferry connections. Domusnovas and Iglesias are just 45-50 km away from the airport (Elmas) and port at Cagliari.
Moreover, in south-west Sardinia has wonderful rock walls with all levels of difficulty and a huge range of rock and exposure types. Here you can climb at any time of year and during any part of the day. To promote this side of Sardinia we’ve created the Arrampicata Sardegna website. The aim is to provide support and find a sector to suit every need and taste.
Pedra Rubia offers you the chance to pass the day with a few hours of climbing (in the morning or in the afternoon) and another part of the day relaxing by the sea. If you want to climb all day we can help you getting to the crags by our transfer service or just come together there. Come visit the most exciting crags of the Sulcis Iglesiente.

Spring, autumn or winter: climbing by the sea
Close to the beach of Masua, above the Porto Flavia mine, you find the unique Mausa cliff. The view on its own would make the trip worthwhile, encompassing the whole breathtaking panorama of the gulf of Nebida and the Pan di Zucchero. The crag offers a wide range of difficulties on perfect rock characterised by delightful dripstone formations within vertical walls. Thanks to its south-east aspect, you can climb here throughout the day during winter. In the summer, you can spend the hottest time of the day by the sea, climbing after 5 pm, when the crag is in the shade.Contact us now to climb these wonderful crags!
Summer: climbing in the morning and the sea in the afternoon
Pedra Rubia’s proposes spending the morning climbing in the wonderful crags of the canyon of Gutturu Cardaxiu, close to Buggerru, with a choice of the Istentales or Banana Republic sectors, which are both in the shade in the morning and suitable for beginners. These sectors are just a few kilometres away from the fantastic and renowned beach of Cala Domestica, where you can spend the rest of the day.
