A true gem of Ogliastra. Within theLido of Orrì, in the coastal territory of Tortolì, you will find Cala Ginepro, which gets its name from the small juniper forest situated by the coast. The cove is famous for its transparent waters and its beach with fine sand and pebbles, smoothed by the erosive action of the sea. The green vegetation, the pure white sand, the deep blue sea and the pink granite rocks are the colours that nature has chosen for its palette, painting this wonderful scenario: you can lose yourself in this natural beauty while relaxing completely.
The low, rounded rocks act as a border to several areas of the beach, making it look like an outdoor swimming pool. The shallow waters also makes it suitable for children's games. Long walks and sunsets filled with poetry make the cove one of the most poetic on the eastern coast, accompanied by the intense evening fragrance of the junipers.
The beach is equipped with ample parking, places for dining/refreshments and beach umbrella, sunbed and pedalo rentals. This windswept area is the ideal destination for surfers and it is very popular with those who like to do some underwater fishing or snorkelling. It is easy to get to along scenic trunk road no. 125. While on holiday in Tortolì, you will have a chance to visit the Orrì coastline, 16 kilometres of wonderful, hidden little coves.A little further south, don't miss your chance to stretch out on the soft white sand of Cea, another gem situated along the Ogliastra coast. While in the village of Arbatax, protected by the Rocce Rosse(Red Rocks), you will find an 'urban' paradise called CalaMoresca.
