Located between the Tyrrhenian Sea, the Cedrino river and the western slopes of Monte Tuttavista, the town of Orosei is the ideal place for a peaceful stay: full of traditional shops selling local art, crafts and cuisine, it is just 12 km from the natural reserve of Bidderrosa which includes 5 km of intact beaches and 500 acres of pine and wild juniper.
The beach of Marina di Orosei
Located about 3 km from the center of Orosei, it is bordered to the north by the beach of Santa Maria and to the south by the beach of Osalla; it develops for about 2 km in length and 30 meters in width: the emerald-colored water, the white sand and the large spaces are its most characteristic features.
Bordered to the west by a natural canal on whose shore a dirt cycle path develops, it is the ideal location for pleasant walks and bicycle rides, for lovers of footing and jogging.
There are many services available: kiosks, rubber dinghy rental, water bikes; being also located near the pond at the mouth of the Cedrino river, it enjoys a unique flora and fauna throughout the area.
The Hotel Baia Marina is the ideal starting point for many excursions by sea or by land, on foot or by bicycle, on horseback or with quads.
Explore the beautiful coves and beaches of the Gulf of Orosei with a boat or a dinghy, from Cala Fuili to Cala Luna, Cala Biriola, Cala Mariolu, Cala Sisine and Cala Goloritzè, the caves of Bue Marino, the naturalistic oasis of Bidderrosa and the Berchida beach, considered by many to be the most beautiful in Sardinia.
In the hinterland, a visit to the ancient village of Tiscali, an archaeological site whose origins are still mysterious, is a must; for lovers of extreme excursions it is unthinkable, instead, not to venture among the impressive vertical walls of the largest canyon in Europe, the Gola di Gorroppu; for the virtuous of the bicycle, it is possible to be guided inside the forest of Usinavà in Torpè where, covering comfortable carts, you will be able to discover the most characteristic and panoramic points, in the midst of reforestations, rocks shaped by the wind, pastoral villages immersed in a pristine nature.
