The Gulf of Orosei stretches for more than 30 km along the northeastern coast of Sardinia. It is considered one of the most fascinating places of the Island for its natural habitat. Thanks to its peculiar morphological structure, this area is divided into two parts, the northern side distinguishes itself for its pine forest, the long shoreline and coastal dunes, whereas the southern part for the Supramonte Plateau of limestone and its several breath-taking views such as the cleft of Su Gorroppu or the wonderful Cala Goloritzé.
In this unique scenery, well known for its worldwide famous beaches and beautiful bays, like Cala Mariolu, Cala Sisine, Cala Luna and Cala dei Gabbiani, there are the Bue Marino grottos, which are worth visiting at least once in life, since this place is where the monk seal used to nest. On the Gulf it is also possible to visit some of the most beautiful beaches that belong to the district of Orosei, such as Cala Ginepro and Cala Liberotto. They are especially appreciated both by the tourists and the locals for its glimmering colours, the sandy seabed and the pine forest, that offers shelter during the hottest hours.
In addition to the beautiful landscapes, this area offers several interesting activities, thanks to the numerous events related to Sardinian traditions, food, wine and folklore festivals, that liven up the Gulf during summer and spring, for example the Fest of Santa Maria del Mare or that dedicated to the Patron Saint of Orosei, Saint John.
