The Golfo Aranci is an enchanting seaside town, near Capo Figari, on the Tyrrhenian sea. With few fishermen’s houses, it is reflected in the crystal clear waters of Sardinia, where the sunbeams cover the surface with golden sparks, and then seep into the deep blue. On the beach, shining pink granite rocks make even more unreal the landscape, enclosed to the West by the dark and stony mountains of Gallura.
The Golfo Aranci, “gulf of oranges”, was once known as Figari, but, according to a legend, ships carrying oranges coming from the South of Sardinia, sunk near Figari and then, due to the large quantity of oranges floating, the colour of the sea turned from blue to an unusual orange. The town takes its present name after this episode and our resort overlooking this charming gulf will be the ideal accommodation for an unforgettable holiday in Sardinia.
