The Gulf of Orosei is located on the north-eastern coast of Sardinia. It extends for 30 km and represents one of the most beautiful natural areas of the whole island. The coast is morphologically divided into two parts and made of long expanses of fine sand, granite cliffs and crystal-clear water as well as huge limestone mounts covered in Mediterranean scrub and centuries-old trees, that create breath-taking views with intense and contrasting colours.
In this beautiful landscape, that stretches from Dorgali, up to Baunei and Orosei, small and unblemished beaches can be reached only by boat or through steep trails surrounded by vegetation. For this reason, the Gulf of Orosei is a beloved tourist destination by hikers, climbers, and snorkelers, who have here the opportunity to immerse themselves in the nature and to admire the native flora and fauna of the area.
Besides the hiking itineraries, the territory of this area of Sardinia gives the possibility to learn more about the history, the traditions, and the folklore that since centuries distinguish the area called “Baronia”. Some examples of the history of the region and its traditions, that did not change over the time, are the nuraghi, the medieval complexes and the numerous Romanesque churches. Moreover, many celebrations are organized every year, such as the Holy Week and its rites, the big fire in honour of Saint Antony, and the feast of Saint Isidore and its procession with people dressed in traditional clothes, horses, and decorated carts.
