Peschiera San Giovanni

A lagoon to be discovered in Tortolì.

Spend an original day in the open air: during your holidays in Arbatax you absolutely must pay a visit to Peschiera San Giovanni, the fishermen’s cooperative of Tortolì.

The Peschiera was founded by 13 fishermen; some were local, and others were from Ponza. The fishermen joined together to take advantage of products derived from the sea and from the pond in the town.

In addition to mussel and oyster farms, catching facilities, and sport fishing, the Peschiera has an excellent restaurant with local products.

La Peschiera has created a centre for the breeding, care, and sale of all that is fished. It has also run an important didactic project explaining the history, experiences, and life behind fish production that can also be understood and enjoyed by children.

A lagoon to discover, visit and learn about from a new point of view.
