As you admire the splendid Sardinian sea around you, you will reach the famous promontory of the so called "Devil's Saddle", which divides the city from Poetto beach.
The hill of the Sella del Diavolo takes its name (“Devil’s Saddle” in English) from an ancient legend, according to which the devils, led by Lucifer, were so impressed by the beauty of the Gulf of Cagliari that they tried to seize it.
But God, sent therefore his troops of angels - commanded by the Archangel Michael. During the battle above the Gulf, Lucifer was thrown from his horse, losing his saddle, and falling from the sky he landed on the promontory, giving it its current, unique shape.
This legendary battle is also the reason for the name of the Cagliari’s Gulf, known as the Gulf of Angels.
You will explore this incredible stretch of sea that has inspired legends and myths, and you will discover its several caves and beautiful bays such as Cala Fighera and the Grotta dei Colombi. Once anchored by the promontory, you will enjoy the beautiful landscape, relax with your friends, take superb picture and – if the weather is nice – you can swim in the transparent sea.
And after the 3 hours excursion, we will return to the port of Cagliari.
