The area of northern Sardinia, and in particular the north-east, have a pleasant blend of beauty between the characteristic Gallura granite mountain and the beautiful sandy beaches mixed with large and small rocky coves. An area rich in flora and fauna thanks to an ideal environment characterized by numerous waterways. An area that, contrary to what one might think, has the largest number of historical-archaeological sites in Sardinia, especially from the Nuragic era. The most important Nuragic village of La Prisciona is located in the Arzachena archaeological area, recently subject of excavations and restorations at the hands of Dr. Angela Antona of the Superintendence for Archaeological Heritage for the provinces of Sassari and Nuoro.
Porto Cervo and the Costa Smeralda are certainly places that drive tourism in the north of Sardinia, and probably the whole island, but the north-western coast is particularly rich in tourist attractions. The Gallura coast has the romantic Isola Rossa, the breathtaking views of Costa Paradiso, the beautiful white beach of Vignola, the cliffs overlooking the sea of Capo Testa and the famous resorts of Santa Teresa Gallura and Palau.
