Golfo Aranci, the gulf of dolphins.

07.03.2022
Golfo Aranci is also named “Golfo dei delfini”. In between Olbia and Tavolara Island there’s a family of bottle nose dolphins leaving there.

We are going to inaugurate our Sardinia journal talking about the fishermen’s village of Golfo Aranci. Our base is located in its municipality, more or less half an hour of navigation from and 10 min by car.

 Golfo Aranci is a splendid location where to make the first or last stop-over of your sailing journey (depending on the wind conditions of course). The picture you appreciate below is the green mile that goes from the town to Cala Moresca, a quite cove where you can anchor the boat between the emerald sea beach and the islet of Figarolo.

The fishermen’s village has plenty of activities to do. You can have a nice walk in the brand new seafront, bring your kids to the play park or taste great fresh “frittura mista di pesce”, mixed fried fish and admire some of the most incredible artworks such as Pinuccio Sciola’s “Pietre sonore”.

This is the third of the five beaches the town has, and it is well known for its shallow water. 
And below you can have a photo tour of the stunning Cala Moresca surroundings, where the Little Marmaid movie has been filmed last summer.
