Activities/Attractions: The small town of Arzachena in the north of Sardinia has approx. 13.000 inhabitants and is part of the province of Olbia-Tempio. Olbia with its airport and harbour is about 25 km away. The sea can be reached in some minutes by car. Situated in northeastern Sardinia, in the Gallura region and near the island of La Maddalena, Arzachena is accessible via the island's main road (S.S 125) and from the ports of Olbia and Palau. Its territory includes about 80 km. of coastline and offers impressive views.
Arzachena is one of the most well-known and popular tourist destinations today, offering visitors plenty of attractions, services and comforts. The sea's water is astonishingly transparent and clean with an array of astounding colours. You'll find both white, fine sand beaches and small bays accessible only from the sea. The underwater environment is also inviting and includes big groupers, dentex, amberjacks, red gorgonians, sponges and cnidarians.
Arzachena is not only sea, but also wonderful woodlands and Mediterranean underbrush with its typical aromas of myrtle and juniper. The "stazzo" is a typical building in this region. It's an old, rural dwelling and its roof is made of reeds, juniper's branches and trunks. Nowadays many of them have been restored and transformed into holiday farm residences.
Arzachena also has a very interesting history. In the south-western area called Capichera, you'll find the monumental Tomba dei Giganti Coddu Vecchju near the Nuraghe "La Prisciona". Other attractions include the Li Muri Necropolis and the Tomba dei Giganti di Li Lolghi. Also to be mentioned is the Little Temple of Malchittu dating back to 1600 B.C. It's unique in that it is one of the only four examples of a megaron-shaped nuraghic temple (an elongated rectangle) in Sardinia.
