This is perhaps the most spectacular gulf on the whole island. Framed by towering cliffs, indented with countless coves, clear, emerald green waters lap long, sandy beaches. In the north, Orosei lies among lush citrus and olive groves. The central Piazza del Popolo is ringed with splendid buildings, including the white-stuccoed church of San Giacomo. Marina di Orosei beach is a long crescent of golden sands fringed by fragrant pines.
