If you are a cat lover we have the perfect spot for you to visit. The cat beach in Italy is definitely one of the best places to visit if you want to be surrounded with cats.
Visit the Lovely Cat Beach Full of Rescue Felines!
This amazing spot we mentioned is actually located in Sardinia. It is believed to be one of the best tourist destinations on the island and we are pretty sure we know the reason why.
This particular beach is so popular because there is a sanctuary that takes care of the feral cats on the island. They take complete care of these cats from vaccinations to sterilization. This sanctuary is called I Gatti di su Pallosu and is located on the west coast of Sardinia.
The sanctuary located next to a tiny village is founded by Andrea Atzori and his wife. The cat beach has become a great tourist attraction after opening the sanctuary in 2011. Cats have been living on the island way before the sanctuary was open. They were brought to the island by fishermen who thought that the cats will resolve their problem with rodents. It is pretty sure that some of the cats currently living on the island are originating from those cats.
It is important to note that the sanctuary is a non-profit organization and anyone who visits is more than welcome to donate whatever they can. In order to visit this place make sure you book your visit in advance. You can only visit in a group of maximum ten people and you can be with the cats for only half an hour. They are doing this so the cats don’t get too stressed out.
The sanctuary has been given excellent reviews from their visitors who mostly come from abroad. If you are not sure what your next travelling destination should be we highly recommend this cat paradise.
