Inflatable boat hire Villasimius
Hiring an inflatable boat, a yacht or a sailing boat is the best way to visit the coast of southern Sardinia in complete autonomy and freedom. During the day at sea you can decide where to go and where to stop, you can visit the most beautiful beaches on the south coast and stop for a swim. You can also reach a restaurant on the beach and eat with your feet in the sand, you are spoilt for choice.
Lo snorkelling is an activity you do in the sea to enjoy the beautiful underwater landscape with a pair of fins on your feet and wearing a mask with a comfortable snorkel. It is a relaxing sporting activity during which you think about nothing, empty your head and become as carefree as a child. You spend some time observing the blue sea, looking for animals or perhaps watching a fish going about its daily business. While snorkelling, you may spot urchins, octopuses, starfish, moray eels and on a lucky day maybe even a hermit crab Bernardo the hermit in full swing.
A tip for snokelling: when you are handed the mask, before wetting it, put some saliva on the inside of the lens, spread the saliva and rinse with sea water. If you don't wear the mask immediately after this practice, leave some water on the inside while you wait to start snorkelling. To the uninitiated this barbaric practice often seems strange, but professionals do it all the time, without thinking about it, because this way the mask does not fog up.
Another very important thing is to never, ever take starfish out of the water, not even for a few seconds because you cause them irreparable damage.
