Trekking on the Tonnare trail from Portoscuso to Gonnesa

further information


The time may be subject to changes that will be agreed by phone after booking in order to adapt the experience according to the time of year, weather conditions, temperatures, needs and possible visits to the sites.


  • Duration of the tour: 11,3 km
  • Difference in height: 300 m
  • Difficulty: Hiking (E)
  • Duration: 6 hours

The meeting point will be the beach of Porto Paglia, where you will meet the guide and you will leave a car for the return, since the trekking path starts from Porto Scuso in the direction of Porto Paglia.

Possibility to change the route with arrival at the archaeological site of the Nuraghe of Seruci instead of the Tonnara of Porto Paglia.


The route, to be covered at a slow pace of about 6/7 hours of walking with short breaks if necessary, involves the passage on coastal areas sometimes exposed therefore not indicated on rainy days but in any case not relevant even for those suffering from vertigo. The difference in height develops throughout the hike with a continuous rise/fall that becomes a bit tiring because of the sandy soil. On the second part, the path becomes a bit more wild with passages on sand and low Mediterranean vegetation interrupted by some oasis of juniper, with stops in some coves that in the right periods allows you to take a swim and stop for a break with packed lunch. The itinerary is equipped with some emergency exit points that only in case of real need allow you to interrupt the experience in advance.


  • The Rocky Layers of volcanic origin, Trachyte, Ignimbrite, Sandstone, Fossil Dunes
  • The coastal Mediterranean scrub, mastic, cistus, helichrysum, juniper, orchid specimens, but also alien plants such as the Fig of the Ottentotti and the Mushroom of Malta
  • The coves of Guroneddu, Porto Paglia and the fishing village, the trap of Porto Paglia
  • The Gulf of Lion
  • Tuna fishing culture, remnants of World War II 


There will be a small final aperitif with typical Sardinian products such as sausage, cheese and a glass of wine that may vary depending on the season.
