Forty kilometres of the wildest Sardinian coastline, with vertical cliffs cut by deep incisions that interrupt the impressive rock walls with sandy bays and beaches, which are true jewels of the Mediterranean. By definition one of the last natural paradises, where birds such as Audouin\'s Gull, Eleonora\'s Falcon and the European Shag nest and live in symbiosis with a natural habitat with many species found only in this area and jealously guarded by the shepherds who to this day graze their herds of goats.
The Grotta dei Colombi, the inlets of Portu Pedrosu and Portu Quau and the beaches of Cala GoloritzÃ© and Ispuligidenie (Cala Mariolu and the Spiaggia dei Gabbiani) will accompany you in an unforgettable voyage, discovering undersea sumps inside the Grotta del Fico, the last kingdom of the Monk Seal, and taking you back in time to relive an ancient world. And we\'re not finished, there are still the beaches of Cala Sisine and Cala Luna.
Ogliastra stretches from the high Flumendosa basin to the east side of the Gennargentu, and looks over the Tyrrhenian Sea with a high, rocky and spectacularly beautiful coastline. It also includes, at its southernmost boundary, part of the area that historically was part of the marquisate of Quirra.
Well aware of the importance of safeguarding this area, the Region and the Comunes have invested in reforestation and developing the forests for walks where you can discover the area\'s natural and archaeological heritage.
Ogliastra has a great variety of coastal scenery. In the north, overhanging limestone cliffs are punctuated by quiet sandy bays, such as the famous Cala GoloritzÃ¨, reachable only on foot or by boat: Ogliastra is the perfect place for trekking.
Further south, at Arbatax, TortolÃ¬ and Gairo, broad sandy beaches such as Cea, San Gemiliano, OrrÃ¬, and Musculedda alternate with rocks of red porphyry, granite or Coccorocci\'s unusual black beach.
Ogliastra is one of those marvellous places in which, between the mountains and the sea, you discover a different view around each corner.
