Situated in the east-central part of Sardinia, Ogliastra is a most spectacular
corner of Sardinia, a natural amphitheatre that from the Gennargentu Mountain
falls to a sea of unequalled clear water. Its 100 kilometres coast is a unique,
enchanting display of cobalt blue and intense emerald green colours. Here is
where the natural beauty of Sardinia outshines itself, alternating long, wide
beaches (Cala Moresca, Porto Frailis, Lido di Cea, Lido di Tortolì) with lovely
little bays (Cala Mariolu, Cala Luna, Cala Biriola, Cala Sisine, Cala Golorotzé)
and majestic cliffs overlooking a crystal-clear sea.

Il Trenino Verde: Trenino Verde (Little Green Train) is the service for tourists run by the Ferrovie della Sardegna which allows you to see the most genuine and fascinating corners of Ogliastra. The Trenino Verde takes you to some of the most beautiful places in the heart of Sardinia, which you can otherwise only reach with great difficulty on foot. The Trenino is ideal for a relaxing, calm day out: its slow speed allows you to enjoy to the full the countryside and wonderful nature, and to visit places full of ancient charm.
Starting from the station of Arbatax at sea level, the Trenino Verde's route crosses the comunes of Girasole, Villagrande, Elini, Arzana, Ilbono and Lanusei; you see appear majestically the Gennargentu, Sardinia's highest mountain chain, with its peaks reflected in the lago Flumendosa. The countryside is a roller coaster of thrills: Perda Liana, a limestone "tacco", sticks up all by itself, then you go into the areas belonging to the comunes of Gairo, Ussassai, Ulassai and Seui, when the landscape changes once again, with many-shaped rocks. After 60km, in the middle of a wood formed of centuries-old holm oaks, the train stops, and you proceed on foot to the Montarbu wildlife reserve, between Ussassai and Seui, with the colours and scents of unspoilt nature. A very nice walk follows among the limestone tacchi.
At Ogliastra, there is tourist accommodation available in hotels,
farm holiday, farmhouse, residence self-catering accommodation, b&b, rooms for
rent, holiday homes, camp sites and tourist villages.
