Ogliastra's most beautiful beaches a short walk from Hotel L'Ulivo

Some of the most beautiful beaches in Ogliastra can be visited in the area around Tortolì, just a short walk from Hotel L’Ulivo.

Discover Cea Beach, a wide expanse of sand more than a kilometre long, characterised by fine sand and surrounded by lush Mediterranean scrub.

Visit Lido di Orrì, a very large and long beach (16 km of coastline), with white, soft sand and a crystal-clear sea with a seabed that remains shallow for many metres from the shore.

And of course, we recommend San Gemiliano Beach, with its vast, golden sands, which are ideal for families with children.

These are just some of the many beaches that Ogliastra can offer its visitors. Come and see them all!

Boat trips in the Gulf of Orosei

You can take boat trips around the Gulf of Orosei from the Port of Arbatax, just a few minutes’ drive from Hotel L’Ulivo.

These excursions aboard large, fully-equipped motor boats allow you to visit the most beautiful bays in the Gulf, otherwise only accessible on foot.

In just one day, you can marvel at stunning inlets, white sandy coves between huge cliffs and uniquely coloured seascapes.

Some of the most popular beaches seen and enjoyed during these excursions include:

  • Cala Luna, a bay nestled between high cliffs
  • Cala Sisine, a white sandy beach with crystal-clear waters
  • Cala Goloritzè, famous for its imposing limestone spire
  • Cala Biriola, a red sand beach
  • Cala Mariolu, a white sandy beach with turquoise waters

Also not to be missed is a guided tour of Grotta del Bue Marino, an atmospheric sea cave.

Boat trips include a tour along the entire coastline with stops at the main beaches, where you can swim, sunbathe and take refreshments.

Hotel L’Ulivo will give you all the information you need to organise the right excursion for you and your travelling companions.
