A small tongue of land bathed by a crystal-clear sea, Golfo Aranci is one of the most exclusive venues for a holiday in north-eastern Gallura. Closed off by the rocky promontory of Capo Figari, which offers breath-taking views sheer down to the sea, Golfo Aranci comes to life especially in the summer, when it welcomes tourists and visitors from all over Europe arriving in large numbers to enjoy the splendid beaches along its coasts, its exceptional countryside and Gallura’s traditions, not forgetting its special atmosphere which can be romantic, lively – a or a blend of the two – according to taste. So Golfo Aranci truly offers something for everyone – a strategic point for accessing the bays of the Costa Smeralda and other well-known tourist destinations, including Tavolara, Capo Coda Cavallo and Cala Moresca.
