Between sea and mountain with unique landscapes
Ogliastra is a heavenly locality on the eastern coast of Sardinia. It owes its name to the "Olivastri", olive trees, that cover its territory, but others attribute the origin of its name to the enormous monolith "Agugliastra" (or Pedra Longa) overlooking the Baunei coast. The coasts of Ogliastra are wonderful oasis set between sea and rocks, among the most beautiful marine areas of the entire Mediterranean sea.
In the northern area there are suggestive inlets that are only reachable by boat or by foot: Cala Luna, Cala Sisine, Cala Mariolu and Cala Goloritzé; going south there are the beaches of Tancau, Girasole, Orrì, Cea, Marina di Barisardo e Cardedu, Coccorrocci e the Gulf of Sarrala. Its nature is still uncontaminated and offers many different landscapes, from the hills to the mountains of the Gennargentu. It is also an important area from an archeological/historical point of view beacuse of its many nuraghe, Domus de Janas, sacred springs, giants' tombs and menhirs.
It is possible to follow trekking itineraries by foot, by bike, horseback riding, by car and SUVs but also by boat, for those who prefer to travel on the sea. Only the combination of scents, images and magic environments can decribe this suggestive land.
