About Location

Why it is Famous ?

Useful information and facilities The beach has a host of facilities: it has a large car park, hotel, campsite, café, refreshment point and nearby there are pubs and clubs in general which offer a particularly vibrant nightlife. Porto Frailis has shallow waters which allow children to play safely. It is possible to rent beach umbrellas, sun loungers and pedal boats. Being windy, it is an ideal spot for surfers and is loved by scuba fishing enthusiasts and by those simply wishing to dive in its waters, perhaps with a mask and flippers to do some snorkelling in the underwater world rich in pleasant surprises Porto Frailis is placed on the headland of Bellavista, and is surrounded by a natural scenery of bays and inlets which make it completely unique and fascinating. Starting from the Rocce Rosse (Red Rocks), famous throughout the world for their particular colour of porphyry, then the splendid Cala Moresca, on the eastern side of the town, and continuing towards the Telis, the Bay of Portofrailis and San Gemiliano - now residential areas built up using some interesting architecture - it is possible to admire different colours and landscapes, all both striking and enchanting is a small harbour in the Ogliastra region.

Facts About Destination

Porto Frailis - Arbatax, this is the best well known town of the Ogliastra area, thanks partly to the presence of the commercial and tourist port and thanks also to its rather intriguing name: it derives from an Arabic word meaning \"fourteenth tower\", for the Saracen tower which overlooks the seafront. Ogliastra, with the beauty of its coastline and mountainous interior, is Sardinia\'s most recently-discovered tourist destination. This corner of the island, bounded by the mountains and the sea, offers an unlimited number of unique attractions for visitors. A paradise of remarkable beauty situated on the east coast of Sardinia: here Nature offers the best of itself. The name Ogliastra is said to come from the Olivastri, olive trees, found all over this area, though others say it\'s derived from the Agugliastra (or Pedra Longa), the limestone monolith on the coastline of Baunei. Ogliastra\'s coastline contains beautiful oases of sand wedged between the sea and the surrounding cliffs, and is one of the Mediterranean\'s most charming marine landscapes. Starting from the north, we come to sandy bays (cale) reachable only by boat or on foot, such as the famous Cala Luna, Cala Sisine, Cala Mariolu and Cala Goloritzé; further south we find interesting beaches such as those at Tancau, Orrì, Cea, the Marinas di Barisardo and Cardedu, Coccorrocci and the Golfo di Sarrala.

Area Information

The centre of this small town rises at the bottom of Cape Bellavista - territory enriched with the green-coloured Mediterranean scrub and famous for the characteristic red rocks and the masses of porphyritic granite located close to the harbour. A true explosion of colours takes place in the spring with the contrast of the rocks of the headland and reef, the beach\'s white sand and the limpid waters. A natural frame to this is the panorama of the surrounding mountains, the highest on the island. Beside the harbour rises a tower from the seventeenth-century while to the right is a prophyry quarry. On the sea, the silhouette of the famous porphyritic reef known as \"red rocks\" from Arbatax. In addition, there is a passageway dug into the rock through which access to a small beach at the feet of the rocky walcan be had. Off in the distance, on a point in the southern part of the headland and 3 km away, is the S. Gemiliano Tower. All of this together with the ample choice of excursions in the inland areas make Arbatax a particularly pleasant seaside area and place to stay. Sardiniaâs underwater world is just as diverse and varied as its island scenery. Every year diving fans are lured to Sardinia by its striking coastlines, translucent water, abundant sunshine, sunken Roman galleys, rugged rocks and rare shells.

An excellent website offering information on all routes and timetable for buses and trains thoughout Sardinia, is the Sardinia Airport Guide. Its website can be found on our Links page together with other sources of information. Car hire is really essential for those visitors wishing to explore beyond their hotel or resort. The main car hire companies operate there and the roads are very good and relatively quiet outside the main towns.

Sardinia has a very low criminal rate even kidnapping, which targeted wealthy individuals until the mid 1980s, has completely disappeared. Some areas of Sardinia have a longstanding reputation of family feuds apart from the fact that foreigners were almost never involved in such disputes, these belong now mostly to the past. Beware that some urban areas are unsafe. Be wary of game hunters during the September-February period check with locals, hotel employees, & the website of the Sardinian Region for legal hunting dates. Do not hike in the wilderness during these days! There are protected areas but even these are regularly raided by poachers, especially during the night. From April/May to September, fires plague Sardinia as the rest of the Mediterranean area some are spontaneous wildfires, but most are criminal. Observe the usual precautions. Sardinia is generally forbidden to start domestic fires in forests. Check with local authorities Sardinia is an autonomous region & Italian laws might be superseded by local provisions. Sardinia, with its quintessential Mediterranean beauty, is mainly loved for swimming, boating, windsurfing, hiking, climbing, and camping, with coastal areas tending to become over touristed especially in the warmest month, August. The inner life of the island away from the tourist spots takes longer to appreciate and requires you to peel away the layers of apparent Italianization.


Sardinia is one of five locations identified by the editors of InternationalLiving.com in a recent article on the healthiest places on earth to live. Sardinia, an island of 1.3 million people off Italyâs Mediterranean coast, is a Blue Zone. Blue Zones are areas in the world that have been determined by scientists as places where the people live the longest. Sardinia has some of the oldest people on earth, and Sardinian food may be the reason for their health and longevity. The Mediterranean Diet is no doubt good for you, and Sardinians actually live the Mediterranean lifestyle, too. This could be the key to their incredible health and longevity. Sardinian wine, cheese, and bread have something extra going for them. Sardinians produce a number of wines, but a local variety called Cannonau, a dark red wine, contains the worldâs highest levels of antioxidants. Experts have also found that, while the Sardinian diet isnât heavy on fish, which is the usual dietary source of essential Omega-3 fatty acids, Sardinians get heaps of this dietary boon from a local cheese called pecorino sardo, made from the milk of grass-feed sheep. Sardinians also commonly eat simply, homemade breads that contain vitamins and lactic acids that fight harmful bacterial in the digestive tract. Experts suspect that these three pillars of the Sardinian dietâ¦dark red wine, fresh country cheese, and homemade breadâ¦combined with other lifestyle and dietary factors, could be the keys to living a longer, healthier life no matter where you live. âFor 30 years weâve been providing information on places where people can live better for less,â says Jackie Flynn, publisher of InternationalLiving.com. âThere are places on earth where people live simple, healthy lives without the financial and social worries that weigh so heavily on people in modern, industrialized countries. We asked our editors and contributors around the world to come up with their top five, and Sardinia made the cut, as did New Zealand, Panama, Costa Rica, and Ecuador
