Golf of Orosei, Sardinia July 9 to 16
Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean, and is mostly known for its impressive coastline. We set our course from Filicudi to Arbatax, in the hope that we could enjoy sailing the imperious coastline of the Golfo di Orosei with Don and Nancy before their departure at Olbia on July 13. Miraculously, wind speed and direction were on our side and we arrived at the Arbatax Marina exactly on schedule.
The town of Arbatax is known for the rocce rosse (red rocks), a series of weather-beaten rocks rising from the sea, with a white sandy beach nearby. There’s no shortage of accommodation along the streets leading to the beach, and surprisingly, they’re all very well-kept and some private homes even have the “Architectural Digest“ style. We were further surprised by the meal we had at the Ristorante Arbatasar, which was beautifully set inside the Arbatasar Hotel. We had a “Michelin”grade meal, and with staff attended to all details, it was one of the most memorable dinners we’d had.
