Golfo Aranci lies on a narrow peninsula surrounded by about 20 smaller beaches and a beautiful hilly landscape of pine trees and limestone cliffs.

Beaches and swimming

Expect smaller beaches with fine light sand and typically Sardinian clear sea water. All beaches provide basic facilities in the form of sunbed and umbrella hire or bars.
