Golfo Aranci, situated on the Northeast coast of Sardinia, is not only an important port with daily connections with main land Italy, but also a great holiday destination that offers beautiful beaches and tourist facilities at hand.
Besides the fantastic beaches in the gulf itself, there are many enchanting stretches of fine white sand in the surrounding area such as Cala Moresca, Cala Greca, Cala Sabina and White Beach, which can be reached by driving a few kilometres along the panoramic road to Olbia. On that same road you will also find the spectacular Cala Sassari, Cala Banana, Sos Aranzos and Terrata. They are all set within outstanding little bays with crystalline water. The town has a large selection of restaurants and bars, nice shops and luxury hotels with swimming pool, tennis courts and all modern comforts. There is a variety of water sports available, including diving with qualified instructors.
The fish festival, which takes place on the 15th of August in occasion of the town celebrations, is an opportunity to take part in the tradition of Golfo Aranci and to eat plenty of delicious fresh fish.
For those who wish to take a peak at the nightlife of the rich and famous, the exclusive clubs of Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo are only a few kilometres away.
