The town has excellent sea connections with the rest of Italy thanks to its important port. It is only a few km from Porto Rotondo and 15 km from Olbia. The name Golfo Aranci has two different explanations; the first concerns the distant shipwreck of a ship full of oranges, the second and more credible is linked to the Sardinian term "granci" in other words crabs that can be easily found in this area.
In addition to the stunning beaches in the gulf , one mustn't forget the other equally beautiful beaches in the immediate vicinities, like, for example, Cala Moresca, Cala Greca, Cala Sabina and the spiaggia Bianca. The marine reserve of the island of Tavolara is very near, alongside the beautiful Capo Coda Cavallo. The sea, famous for its transparency and beauty offers wonderful water sports opportunities, in particular scuba diving.
