Golfo Aranci Guide

Located on the island of Sardinia, the Italian town of Golfo Aranci is in the Province of Olbia-Tempio and is around 200 km to the north of Cagliari and 13 km to the north east of Olbia. It also lies on the gulf that is located on the north eastern coast of Sardinia. There are two possible meanings for the name Golfo Aranci. The first centres around a shipwreck that was carrying oranges and the second is linked to the Sardinian term "granci' which are crabs that can be found in the area. Of the two, the second is perhaps the most plausible. Many visitors to the town visit the beaches found on the gulf itself, however, the town's beaches are also beautiful and include Cala Moresca, Cala Greca, Cala Sabina and the spiaggia Bianca. Also located nearby is the island of Tavolara, which is a marine reserve, and the beautiful Capo Coda Cavallo. Finally, the islands crystal clear, warm waters make it a haven for visitors who want to engage in water sports, especially scuba diving.

From the port connections are made to Italy via daily ferries to the ports of Civitavecchia, Livorno and Fiumicino. Facilities at this small port are limited to a departure lounge, café and a small convenience store.
