Gallura is the historical region of Sardinia that includes the entire north-eastern sector of the island. Characterized by a very jagged coastline, with narrow and long inlets of granite rocks, fronted by numerous islands, including Tavolara and those of the Maddalena Archipelago, is Gallura, one of the island's most popular tourist destinations.
If the coast is famous for the beauty of its beaches, the charm of granite rocks and the clarity of the sea, the interior of Gallura is no less striking, marked by hilly and mountainous landscapes where the granite peaks, the curious rock formations, they emerge from a vegetation composed mainly of large cork oaks and dense maquis.
Gallura includes Olbia, Tempio Pausania, Arzachena, Santa Teresa di Gallura, Palau, Golfo Aranci, Badesi, San Teodoro, Budoni, and many other small towns, and offers a wide range of luxury hotels and residences, boutique hotels, restaurants and valuable attractions. The main tourist area of Gallura is the Costa Smeralda, glamorous area famous for its beaches and its stretches of coast that overlook a clear emerald sea, where the most prestigious villas of the island frame the landscape, while the hinterland is famous for the surprising archaeological sites scattered among woods and Mediterranean maquis, far from the tourist destinations, such as the nuraghe Albucciu, the tomb of the giants of Li Lolghi and the necropolis of Li Muri. The Gallura region differs from the rest of the island also for the dialect and the type of settlement consisting of the ‘stazzi’ (typical rural house) agricultural pastoral family.
The archipelago of La Maddalena which is part of Gallura, is a group of islands located northeast of Sardinia, off the coast of Palau and the Costa Smeralda. It consists of 7 major islands, La Maddalena, Caprera, Santo Stefano, Budelli, Santa Maria, Razzoli, Spargi, and several smaller islets. In the complex coastal configuration lies much of its beauty: inlets and enchanting coves from which it is possible to admire formidable views. The white sand beaches and the emerald water, together with the majesty of its cliff and the shapes of its rocks, similar to sculptures, constitute the spectacularity of this archipelago that conquers every visitor. Among these, Cala Corsara is considered one of the most beautiful: it is located on the Island of Spargi and is characterized by a fine white beach and a crystal clear sea. The Pink Beach, on the island of Budelli, is certainly the most fascinating and famous: it takes its name from the characteristic pink color of the sand, due to the crumbling of the shells of small marine animals.
The Archipelago is one of the last Italian ecological paradises. Established a National Park in 1996, it is strictly protected by laws that protect the environmental heritage.
The Gallura coast of the island is still the driving force of a consistent recovery, inevitably linked to national and international tourism, data that emerge from the study carried out by real estate scenarios, made up of research that analyzes the markets and in general the economy of territory.
