cala mariolu
The Orosei stretch of coast is marked by a wild scenery and some hidden gems.
Travel along the coast by boat is the best way to discover some of the most beautiful and inaccessible beaches in Sardinia, such as Cala Mariolu, a charming retried of turquoise waters and rugged cliffs.
One of the options for this trip is provided by the Ogliastra Nuovo Consorzio Marittimo. This one-day boat excursion departures from Arbatax. The trip has several stops along the coast in beautiful beaches (Cala Mariolu, Cala Sisine and Cala Luna) and caves (Grotta del Fico and Grotte del bue Marino). The journey is fun, the crew and diving instructors barely speak english, we all communicate with gestures, like italians in general, but everybody is very friendly!
Of course the best and more adventurous option would be to rent your own motorised dinghy (no experience is required!).
Here the mediterranean mountain and sea collided to impress!

Would we survive in Italy without eating pasta? Of course not!
What about eating some large ravioli stuffed with potato purée and cheese? Simple but superb!
Just ask for the Culurgiones, one of the typical pastas from Sardinia (Ogliastra area).
The one in the picture is from a small ristorante in Tortolì – Il Piccolo.

La Pavoncella
Located in Tortolì, Sardinia, La Pavoncella is a familiar B&B runned by Anna, a true italian mama!
The family inhabits the first floor and the guests the ground floor. In total there are 3 differently decorated double rooms with bathroom ensuite, air conditioning and tv. We got the “terra” room. It was large, comfortable and fine decorated with traditional Sardinian handicrafts. All was spick and span and well maintained.
The breakfast was delicious; the fruits and cookies deserved a special attention, different every day. You are able to use the fridge of the breakfast room and there is a microwave as well if you need.
Anna, our host was caring and nice and will help you in what you need. Besides that, she has some partnerships with local touristic operators that can provide you discounts. A good value for the money.
