Today, is the most important Tortolì center in the entire Ogliastra region. Its economy, once based on agriculture, today Concentrates on the service industry, thanks to the presence of the Arbatax harbor and to the new airport. Of them all, the tourism industry HAS grown the most, transforming the area enter a sought-after tourist destination. In the city center, you'll find the former cathedral, the church of St. Andrew, That dates back to the XVIII Century and is in Baroque style.

Ogliastra is awash with things to do Both inland and on the coast. With its natural rustic beauty Ogliastra is the perfect environment to take part in sporting activities Various Artists. Mainly known for its coastline it is very easy to forget some of the Sardinia that most spectacular inland scenery in Europe. This mountainous terrain Allows for a fixed number of sporting activities such as mountain biking and rock climbing to mention but a few.

To discuss sporting activities in Sardinia and not mention would not be Possible watersports. A mixture of crystal clear seas and fantastic climate make Sardinia the perfect place to practice all forms of watersports. Amongst go diving the coral in Alghero or sailing off the Emerald Coast, the choice is yours.

Ogliastra is a beautiful natural theater That opens from the mountains or Supramonte ', on the border with Barbargia, Towards the central-eastern Sardinian coast. The particular comes for 'Oliva Straw ', the three local wild olive. Ogliastra is know for its magnificent and admired coastal area, Surrounded by mountains and cliffs all, and for some of the most untouched coast of Italy. Its natural Sea Mountain Park includes famous sites and landmarks like the 'Cale' (beach harbors), among the most famous ones Cala Gonone, Cala Sisine, Goloritze Cala, Cala Luna ...

Another impressive natural landmark is the massive 'Pedra Longa, a cliff Natual literarly planted enter the sea. Ogliastra is Becoming a popular area for lovers of nature, wild landscapes and fabulous local food, it is the area of ??the island most loved by conscious That Tourists like to escape from the crowded areas of the north and the south of the island.

Tiscali: The ancient village of 'Tiscali' (yes, especially the gift of it to the company ...) is hidden inside an empty mountain and was discovered When part of the Mountain's roof collapsed. Probably it was consistently build the Roman invasion by the locals do not That Wanted to be Submitted and The Abandoned. It is very well preserved and shows people how to live overused 2000 years ago, without any later intervention. The oldest Olive trees are local heritage of Europe, you can see em in the square of Santa Maria Navarrese Village.

Cala Luna, Cala Mariolu, Goloritze Cala, Cala Sisine, Cala Cartoe ... some of the most magnificent and untouched spots in the Mediterranean Sea. 'Trenino Verde' (The Little Green Train) is one of Italy's oldest Railways. It connects with a journey That May Vary from 4 to 6 hours (According To how many cows need to be moved away from the train's Itinerary!) Arbatax to the South of the Island, crossing some of the most wild and Beautiful untouched natural treasures or Italy.

The modern Tourist Port of Baunei and Saint Maria Navarrese has been inaugurated in 1998, a sure and pleasant shelter in the oriental Coast of Sardinia that can entertain up to 340 boats with a maximum length up to 30 meters. The personnel is competent and cordial and the variety of the offered services are able to satisfy the different demands of the diportistis. From June 2005 the port has been endowed with the 'Pequod', the lifter to otherwise allow the access on board of the skilled people, becoming so the 'first accessible port' of Sardinia.

The area in the middle of the east coast, Ogliastra, with its small, all year round inhabited localities offers great possibilities of a wonderful beach vacation at numerous beaches (sandy or rocky). And plenty to explore in the reach mountain and high plateau routes.
A Ferry Port (Arbatax) and a small airport (Tortoli) facilitate the connection to this still relatively unexplored area. Ogliastra: Mountains, rocks, crystalline sea: this is the landscape that is found in the territories that make up this section of Sardinia.

Ogliastra with its 'Tacchi' (mountain outcrops), desert areas and small isolated coves; the Gennargentu with its snow-covered mountain tops and its skies, playground to the majestic golden eagle; and finally the Supramonte, an uncontaminated paradise of still unexplored caves, centuries-old forests and archaeological and naturalistic treasures.

In these areas the keen sports enthusiasts can find their dream: in fact, there is all the space needed to practice equestrian sports, even long rides on the beaches, to climb up the tall, vertical rocky walls that look out onto the sea, to do a variety of surfing activities, to go trekking and go on mountain bike excursions, all pleasant alternatives to visit otherwise inaccessible areas.

Gennargentu means "silver doors", from the colour of the schistose rock that characterises its geological formation. Its mountains indeed contain a unique microcosm: its high peaks, that go up to 1834 metres above sea level at Punta La Marmora, face onto uncontaminated nature from where the main watercourses of the eastern Sardinian area, the Cedrino and Flumendosa originate.

The flora that enriches the territory is in a considerable part constituted by endemic species such as the rare brooms of Pantelleria, Corsica and Moris, but not forgetting the meadows of thyme, with the perfume of the helichyrsum and the aromatic bushes, flown over by the golden eagle, the Eurasian black vulture, the raven, the peregrine falcon and the bearded vulture.

Particularly interesting from this point of view is the territory of Baunei, with its karst valleys and the Golgo Plateau that bears the deepest gorge in Europe, Su Sterru. In the Province of Ogliastra visitors can also board the characteristic "green train," a service sponsored by Sardinia's Railway. The train takes tourists right through the heart of the island to visit some of its most beautiful places, often inaccessible and so hidden that one can only reach them on foot, and with great difficulty.

Speaking of "original" means of transport, one can also organize four-wheel excursions along routes that vary in length and difficulty, whether through forests, canyons, streams and valleys, and in pristine habitats hosting many animal species such as eagles and mouflons. Ready for some speleology? See the spectacular caves of Grotta del Fico, Grotta Su Marmuri and Grotta Su Meraculu. Or go free climbing among the pinnacles and cliffs that emerge breathtakingly from the sea. Water lovers can enjoy excursions by motorboat or rubber dinghy, or undertake some scuba-diving !
The area around Tortoli' has a lot to be proud of! Bone-white beaches, pristine sea water, enchanting views and untouched nature; words can't really express the beauty of this rocky coast where high cliffs hide wonderful beaches and coves. We recommend the most evoking creek of Cala Luna, set amongst a woodlands of oleanders, boasting six huge grottos opening up into the white beach. Within a short distance is Cala Goloritzè, emerald green sea and a rocky arch with a 140 metres high pinnacle, Cala Sisine and the two inlets of Cala Biriola and Cala Mariolu.

Almost undiscovered and distant, those beaches are accessible only by boat. The beaches of Ogliastra, running after one another in the almost 1800 kilometres of coast, sometime interrupted by rocky formations and port constructions, frame real paradise-like corners. They are places of incredible enchantment and captivating views of kaleidoscopian beauty. On the eastern side as on the western one, to the north as to the south, Sardinian coasts make a charming sequence of pastel blue waters alternating with the emerald sea, while candid shores give way to stretches of golden sand or to cliffs carved by time.

The beaches of Sardinia may appear savage at times, and at times mundane, but nonetheless they create a special frame for a holiday in the island, a mosaic full of colours and unforgettable shades. The Ogliastra stretches from the high basin of the Flumendosa up to the eastern slope of the Gennargentu, facing out onto the Tyrrheanian Sea with its tall, rocky coast, of spectacular beauty. It also includes, on its southern borders, a part of the historical territory of the ancient marquisate of Quirra.

It is the least populated province in Italy: the territory, almost exclusively mountainous, is to a large extent covered by woods and pastures. Even if now it has also become an important tourist centre, the Ogliastra also continues to live off its traditional activities such as its sheep rearing (most tasty is the pecorino cheese and other cheeses, such as the cas'e fitta and the casu axeru), its agriculture and wine-production (the famous Cannonau of Jerzu), and craftsmanship.

The awareness of the importance of safeguarding the territory has pushed the Regional Government and the Municipalities to invest in the reforestation and in the exploitation of the wood areas, where it is possible to go on excursions to discover its naturalistic and archaeological patrimony. The variety of the coastal landscape is one of the great wealths of the territory. In the north the vertical calcareous cliffs are found in small, silent coves, such as the famous Cala Goloritzè, accessible only by boat or on foot: Ogliastra is the land of trekking par excellence.

More to the south, in the territories of Arbatax, Tortolì and Gairo, the wide sandy beaches such as Cea, San Gemiliano, Orrì, and Musculedda, alternate with the rocks of red porphyry, granite or to the unusual black beach of Coccorocci. The Ogliastra is one of those marvellous places in which, between the mountain and the sea, at every bend we discover a different landscape.


The Province of Ogliastra is located in east-central Sardinia, facing eastward on the Tyrrhenian Sea, and bordering in the northwest with the Province of Nuoro, and in the southwest with the Province of Cagliari. Ogliastra was established as a province following a 2001 regional law that provided for a new division of the Sardinian territory, bringing the number of provinces from four to eight.

The Province covers 716 square miles (or 6.2% of Sardinian territory) and holds 23 municipalities, including Lanusei and Tortolì; the two Lakes Flumendosa and part of the Gennargentu Massif are also partly within the province's territory. The name apparently derives from the Olivastri (oleasters, or wild olive trees) that abound here, although others ascribe its origin to the huge monolith known as Agugliastra (or Pedra Longa) on the coast of Baunei.

Ogliastra is the least populated province of Italy: for this reason, it offers nature untamed and a great variety of wonderful landscapes, ranging from the coast to hills and the Gennargentu mountains. The variety of landscapes and nature that has largely been left untouched make the Province of Ogliastra an ideal place for excursions on foot, by bicycle or on horseback. It is possible to walk from the mountains to the sea, following the course of subterranean rivers between centuries-old woods, wildflowers and wildlife, and reaching coves of incredible beauty.

Particularly interesting from this point of view is the territory of Baunei, with its karst valleys and the Golgo Plateau that bears the deepest gorge in Europe, Su Sterru. In the Province of Ogliastra visitors can also board the characteristic "green train," a service sponsored by Sardinia's Railway. The train takes tourists right through the heart of the island to visit some of its most beautiful places.

Location description from manager

The Sardinia region

Tortolì is characterised by the charming coastline with its cliffs made of red porphyry and the pure white beaches among which the Lido di Orrì and Porto Frailis (overlooking the bay of the same name) stand out for the fineness of the sand and the clarity of the water. The many tourist villages, hotels, and campsites in the coastline's prettiest bays allow thousands of visitors to stay and enjoy al the services necessary for their holidays.

Porto Frailis is placed on the headland of Bellavista, and is surrounded by a natural scenery of bays and inlets which make it completely unique and fascinating. Good ferry services to the mainland and other parts of Sardinia are provided through the nearby port of Arbatax (approx' 2 km), and the nearest major airport is Cagliari at around 125 km.

This is one of the most sought after locations of the region, with easy access to a wide range of services and amenities at both Porto Frailis and the larger town of Tortoli, whilst being within easy walking distance of the outstanding San Gemiliano beach!

Starting from the Rocce Rosse (Red Rocks), famous throughout the world for their particular colour of porphyry, then the splendid Cala Moresca, on the eastern side of the town, and continuing towards the Telis, the Bay of Portofrailis and San Gemiliano - now residential areas built up using some interesting architecture - it is possible to admire different colours and landscapes, all both striking and enchanting is a small harbour in the Ogliastra region.

The centre of this small town rises at the bottom of Cape Bellavista - territory enriched with the green-coloured Mediterranean scrub and famous for the characteristic red rocks and the masses of porphyritic granite located close to the harbour.

A true explosion of colours takes place in the spring with the contrast of the rocks of the headland and reef, the beach's white sand and the limpid waters. A natural frame to this is the panorama of the surrounding mountains, the highest on the island. Beside the harbour rises a tower from the seventeenth-century while to the right is a prophyry quarry.

On the sea, the silhouette of the famous porphyritic reef known as "red rocks" from Arbatax. In addition, there is a passageway dug into the rock through which access to a small beach at the feet of the rocky walcan be had. Off in the distance, on a point in the southern part of the headland and 3 km away, is the S. Gemiliano Tower.

All of this together with the ample choice of excursions in the inland areas make Arbatax a particularly pleasant seaside area and place to stay. Sardinia's underwater world is just as diverse and varied as its island scenery. Every year diving fans are lured to Sardinia by its striking coastlines, translucent water, abundant sunshine, sunken Roman galleys, rugged rocks and rare shells.

Tortoli

From Cagliari drive along SS 125; near Lotzorai turn right and enter Santa Maria Navarrese. If you come from Sassari, drive along SS 131: near Abbasanta take road 389, then, as you approach Villanova Strisaili, turn right onto 198 and, near Tortolì, turn left onto SS 125. Near Lotzorai turn right and enter Santa Maria Navarrese.

Thanks to its urban location, the park benefits from the village services and amenities. The beach of Santa Maria Navarrese has very coarse, white sand and gravel mixed with pebbles. Its waters are crystal clear and of a changing blue due the plays of light created by the sun reflected on the seabed of stones, with some rocks rising to the surface.

The name is connected with the rural church devoted to the Madonna, that tradition recounts as built, in medieval times, by the princess of Navarra to respect a vow made in the face of death. Close to the church is a huge, thousand-year old olive tree: it is, in fact, over ten metres in height.

The beach is easily reached as it is located within the town, to the south of the Spanish lookout tower that guards over the beach, in turn hemmed by the typical vegetation of Mediterranean brush. The beach of Santa Maria Navarrese is characterised by shallow waters, allowing children to play freely.

The beach has many facilities: it has wheelchair access, a large car park which is also suitable for campervans, hotel, campsite, cafes and other eating places, and pubs and clubs in which the nightlife is particularly vibrant. It is possible to rent beach umbrellas, sun-loungers and pedal boats. It is much loved by scuba fishing enthusiasts.

The beach, found within the gulf of Arbatax, is made up of white rock cliffs and red granite rocks. Its waters are of a changing blue due to the plays of light created by the sun reflecting off the sea bed of stones, and its tall surfacing rocks are a sure invitation for high diving experts.

Rocce Rosse is found in the locality of Arbatax in the municipal area of Tortolì. It is easy to reach by going along the SS125 panoramic road towards the tourist and commercial harbour of Arbatax, and continuing on until reaching the signposts for Rocce Rosse, a veritable emblem of Sardinia.

For some years now, this has been the unusual and evocative venue for the Rocce Rosse Blues festival, a splendid display of internationally renowned musicians. The beach has a host of facilities: it has a large car park which is also suitable for campervans, hotel, café, refreshment point and pubs and clubs in general which offer a particularly vibrant nightlife.

Tortolì, the most populated village in Ogliastra stands near Arbatax, the sea entrance to the whole region. The port and the third category airport allow for direct connection with the mainland.

The mainly flat territory is situated in a vast plain facing the sea.. Tortolì is one of the most renowned villages on the eastern coast, rich in citrus groves, characterised by the unique beauty of its coasts with plenty of peculiar reefs of red porphyry and white beaches, such as Lido di Orrì and Porto Frailis which definitely stand out for the whiteness of their sand and the limpidity of their waters.

Several tourist resorts, hotels and camping sites located in some of the most beautiful coves on the coast, can welcome a great number of tourists. Tortolì – Arbatax offer many essential services for the perfect holiday. The construction of the tourist port in Arbatax, thanks to its services, has widened the range of offers available to tourists and made it an important stopover for pleasure-trippers who cruise along the eastern coast.
