The town of Orosei is located in the hinterland of the Gulf of Orosei, in the North, while on the opposite side we find the beautiful beach of Marina di Orosei. All around the numerous Nuragic villages and as many nuraghi attest to thousands-of-years-old history and settlements.
This town holds in total 58 four, three, and two star hotels, apartments, holiday rentals, farmhouses and B&Bs.
All of the Orosei coast is full of charming beaches and places, many of which are only reachable via sea - one of the main reasons why these places have preserved their great beauty, because for many months of the year they are totally devoid of human presence. Among the cliffs of the Gulf of Orosei, one of the beaches that is considered one of the most beautiful beaches of all of the Mediterranean arose: the Cala Luna Beach. Whoever knows it and has had the chance to visit it, will remember it for its immeasurable beauty, and because of the fact that on one side the sea is emerald green, and has many reflections created from the shallows (bear in mind that you can perfectly see the fish that swim in the water even when it?s 25m deep) and on the other side, this beach, as if it were part of a scene created by the most brilliant naturalist designer, dips into a freshwater lake completely surrounded by a small forest of tall rose-bay trees, at the end of which and toward the hinterland, you will reach the ?cleft? called Codula di Luna, a totally pristine and wild environment as many other places of these parts are, generally in other areas of Sardinia.
Not too far from Cala Luna you can find the Bue Marino Cave, also only reachable via sea. The name of this cave comes from the fact that for a long time the presence of the Monk Seal was noted, and there are occasionally reported sightings of them, although not necessarily proven. The special feature of this nature masterpiece is that it is divided into two sections and is about 900m long. It can be visited through well-lit and well-equipped paths, from which graceful freshwater ponds with small sandy beaches can be seen. The entire route is extraordinarily rich in stalactites and stalagmites lit by beams of light coming from the inside that make up a spectacular iridescence whose presence is further enhanced by a salt lake with a surface area of more than 1km. Notice a dozen figures carved on the walls and immortalised in the dance that testify once again the secularity of this place.The coves on this part of the coast are formed by a series of small and large beaches that reserve wonders of nature such as the Cala Sisine beach, whose walls that overlook the sea, as high as 600 metres, are completely covered with dense Mediterranean vegetation. Then follows the Cala Biriola beach - small, charming and completely inaccessible via land where a little to the side there is a dense forest of Holm oak trees. Further south there is Cala Mariolu, which is also inaccessible via land. It is beautiful enough to compete with Cala Luna, but here, the sandy shore consists of particularly white sand and of colourful grains smoothened by centuries of the sea and the waves? movement. The inhabitants of the area and the shepherds call them ?the snow fleas? as together they give the whole cove incredible variations of colour, ranging from pale pink to turquoise for a spectacle like no other, perhaps, in the whole world.
