Golfo Aranci Holidays

A Sardinian coastal paradise

The Golfo Aranci, or ‘Orange Gulf’, stretches out into the sea like a crooked finger, with a beautiful coastline lapped by aquamarine waters. Just south of Sardinia’s famous Costa Smeralda, charming Golfo Aranci is a more under-the-radar spot, great for families and couples looking for a chilled-out break.

Once a sleepy fishing village, it has grown slowly into a laid-back resort town. While many come on Golfo Aranci holidays to explore the spectacular beaches, there are plenty of adventures to be had offshore, too. It’s one of the best places in Sardinia to spot bottlenose dolphins, which frolic in the waves close to the island of Figarolo – an emerald green, rocky outcrop, just off the coast – and is also excellent for scuba diving, snorkelling and spear-gun fishing. With plentiful opportunities to explore the ocean, as well as some of Sardinia’s loveliest beaches, holidays to Golfo Aranci have a remarkable amount to offer.
