LIVING THE SEA
The visitor who goes in search of Vermentino reaches the paradise of Gallura, on the north-east coast of Sardinia, in the province of Olbia-Tempio. The area, also well-known for its scintillating social life between the sea and elegant towns, is, for tourism, the true spearhead of the island. Here, the sea is unequalled in beauty. The jagged outline of the Costa Smeralda opens onto small coves with shores of very fine sand, an irresistible invitation to dive in and let yourself be rocked by the waves on hot summer days. Just look at the names of some places in the area – Porto Cervo, Porto Rotondo, Santa Teresa di Gallura, Palau, Budoni, La Maddalena and San Teodoro, to understand the wealth of the area. Names that speak not only of high society but also of absolute excellence in the quality of the sea and environment.
The Maddalena Archipelago has a special place. This great naturalist treasure, also known for the renowned beaches of Spargi, Cala Corsara and Budelli, famous for its pink beach. We can see the bear-shaped rock in Palau, which has always been guardian of the bay there is the turtle rock, irresistible for selfie-fans, at Cala Ghjlgolu. People choosing to stay in Capo Testa can sunbathe on the beach of Santa Reparata or the lidos of Rena Bianca and Rena Majore.
There’s another compulsory stop in the journey at Tavolara Island for a swim in history and local legends. The visitor can relax at Cala d’Ambra, La Cinta and Isuledda in the San Teodoro area, in Tavolara Marine Park, Capo Coda Cavallo. It’s difficult to make the wrong choice – the experience in any lido will always be worthwhile.
