Hiking, Canyoning and Excursions

For lovers of excursions and walks at the fresh air, Sardinia offers many trails of different length and difficulty level that are accessible all year round.

Among the itineraries that can be covered on foot, in the vicinity you can for example stroll along the lagoon of San Teodoro and the beach La Cinta, you can climb the island of Tavolara or there are hiking trails in the woods of the Monte Nieddu.

For young people and the sportier ones, Canyonings represent a sporting, adrenaline and amusing experience, allowing you to spend an exciting and unusual day, exploring the gorges hollowed out by watercourses and visiting places otherwise hard to reach.

If on the other hand you want to dedicate your entire day to particular tours, very interesting and fascinating are the excursions to Cala Luna and the beaches of the Golfo di Orosei, or the trails in the Supramonte, where sports can also be combined with the tasting of typical food and wine products.

Enological itineraries

Wine certainly represents one of the most well-known and appreciated food products of Sardinia, where the winemaking tradition has ancient origins and still today represents the main cultivation of the island. Thanks to its exposure to the sun, the wind and to its salty taste and the particular composition of the soil, the cultivation of many autochthon vines has been developed, that brought about red and white wines of great quality.
Among the white wines in the Gallura, the production that stands out the most is the one of the Vermentino of Gallura, DOCG wine that goes excellently with the great seafood cuisine, while as for the red wines, typical for the Sardinian territory are the Cannonau and the Carignano, that produce wines of great strength and often of high alcoholic content.

For enology enthusiasts and for all lovers of good wine, there are many wine cellars in the Gallura that can be visited and that offer tastings and direct sale of their products. In the vicinity of the Costa Corallina there are for example the wine cellars of Surrau (35 km), Masone Mannu (25 km), the wine cellar of the Vermentino Monti (35 km) and Unmaredivino (45 km). Packages with tours and tastings including transfer service are available on request at the Reception or by e-mail

Water sports

In the small towns of Porto S. Paolo and Marina Maria, just 1 km away from the Hotel, there are several activities for sea and sports lovers in the summer season.

Diving: guided diving to discover the wonders of the Protected Area, from sunken shipwrecks to the under water reefs of Tavolara, from archaeological sites to the fascinating sea bottom of the “secca del Papa”, one of the most beautiful dives of the Mediterranean.

Windsurf: at the beach of Marina Maria, located on the other side of Capo Ceraso, there is the nearest windsurfing school of the area. The particular conformation of the gulf of Olbia, that the beach overlooks, and its orientation in favour of the wind, make this location ideal both for beginners and the more experienced fans of this sport.

Biking

Very scenic and interesting are the itineraries recommended for mountain-bike fans that run along the coast and allow admiring many beaches and coastal landscapes along the way.

The Hotel Ollastu provides its Guests bicycles at no charge, in order to reach the nearby beaches, whereas, on request, the more athletic ones can rent professional bikes.
