Cabras is known for the best fish in the region. The wide pond, which connects to the village center, is teeming with sea-barns, which are regarded as delicacies in the whole of Sardinia. Since the pond has often crossed the banks, and the villagers got wet feet, the Cabrasser also lovingly call their homeland Veneziedda, Little Venice.
Directly behind the village begins a landscape full of diversity, which you can explore on foot, or, even better, by bike. In addition to thriving nature, there are also historical sites: the remains of the ancient seaside town of Tharros. Or the Giants of Mont'e Prama, formerly freestanding sandstone sculptures of Sardinian nuragic culture that were found in perfect condition in ancient tombs.
In this area you will find the most beautiful beaches of Sardinia. The Is Aruttas beach, for example, features white quartz and crystal clear water. In and around Cabras, there are folk festivals and traditional events all year round. The most impressive event occurs in the nearby village of San Salvatore: most of the time it is uninhabited, but at the end of summer, on the first Sunday of September, it is suddenly filled with all sorts of barefooted and spectating people.
For the "Corsa Degli Scalzi", the largest religious festival in the region, more than a hundred barefoot men dressed in white carry the statue of San Salvatore from San Salvatore to Cabras shortly before sunrise. This is a parade of several kilometers, which traditionally ends with large fireworks in Cabras.
