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 Tortolý) with lovely little bays (Cala Mariolu, Cala Luna, Cala Biriola, Cala Sisine, Cala GolorotzÚ) and majestic cliffs overlooking a crystal-clear sea.
However Ogliastra is not only beaches: quite the opposite, the countless wide- ranging itineraries for hiking, cycling, off-roading, trips by car or motorbike, in search of ancient Nuraghs, Domus de Janas and Tombe dei Giganti, make it the ideal place for nature lovers. Another interesting fact about Ogliastra is that is has the highest number of people over a hundred years old in Sardinia: an extraordinary record, considering that the Island already has a high concentration of centenarians compared to the rest of the world. It might be a good idea to spend your next holidays in this place savouring the irresistible culurgiones and porchetto washed down with a healthy glass of good wine.
