Cala Gonone, Dorgali, Orgosolo

The area of Dorgali is among the wildest on the island. Canyons, mountains and the woods of Supramonte are among Europe’s most spectacular. Rebecca in Sardinia clients are guided by experts on treks to the gorge of Su Gorropu and archaeological site of Tiscali. A short tunnel in Dorgali creates a gateway between the mountains and the sea, with spectacular views over the gulf of Orosei. A panoramic road leads down to the beach resort of Cala Gonone. From here, the coast can be explored by boat, or on foot. The beach of Cala Luna, caves of Grotte del Bue Marino, underground lakes and chambers, are among many places of great beauty.

The hill town of Orgosolo, in the Barbagia region, is famous for its anti-authoritarian streak, inspired by shepherds and immortalised in its street art. Huge, cubist graphics recount global social injustices, from Vietnam to Gaza, or call for Sardinian independence. Others simply depict scenes from everyday rural life. Land of the Canto a Tenore (polyphonic male voice choirs), it is a UNESCO world heritage site.
