Sardinia, a unique experience

Golfo di Marinella

The Gulf of Marinella, located about 15 kilometers from Olbia, is located between Golfo Aranci and Porto Rotondo. The popular Marinella beach is known and loved for its wonderfully crystal clear waters, golden sand and lively beach life. The wide sandy beach, very popular in summer, is surrounded by houses, villas and scrubland. The Spiaggia di Marinella is ideal at Mistral-Wind and perfect for families with children and for water sports.

Very different is the rugged east side of the bay, which is called Marana and belongs to the community of Golfo Aranci. At the small marina Porto Marana Yachting Club you can watch the incoming and outgoing ships from the harbor restaurant and take a walk to the small church Chiesa di Marana "Regina della Pace". The style of the modern place of worship is modeled after medieval Spanish country churches and around the chic church square of Borgo Marana are a few small shops and a supermarket.
The small peninsula of Punta Marana stands out for its granite rocks that have been shaped and polished by wind and weather for millions of years.
On the Marana peninsula lies that small dreamlike sandy bay, which is largely occupied by a chic beach bar with lounge chairs and a restaurant. The Lido company of "Oasi Beach Marana" even has its own jetty, so that guests of yachts and sailing boats can enter the beach bar with dry feet.
It can only be a bit uncomfortable here when the mistral wind is blowing over the north of Sardinia. Numerous reefs and rocks protect against strong waves and snorkelling is a real pleasure here. The next bay is a stone's throw away: The Baja di Bahas with its shallow, crystal clear waters is primarily reserved for the residents of the surrounding, exclusive holiday complexes.
