Most of Sardinia is a mountainous plateau that gradually slopes to the sea.
The highest point, Punta La Marmora, rises to 6,017 ft. (1,834m).
The mountainous terrain is drained by many small rivers and streams, and is punctuated by wide green valleys, all covered by scrub and grassy land.
Flatter areas (plains) cover much of the coastline.
