It lies at the foot of the promontory that stretches to the northernmost point of Sardinia, facing a turquoise sea reflecting shades of emerald green, with the splendid northern islands of the Park of the Maddalena Archipelago in front of it. The beach of Marmorata occupies a stretch of coast at the base of Capo Falcone, in the territory of Santa Teresa Gallura, five kilometres from the residential area of the little Gallura town. In reality, the long stretch of soft, white sand - with some hints of pink near the shoreline - is divided into two parts by a stretch of reef, so there are really two beaches. The smaller beach, to the north, is known as Marmoratina or La Laurina. The sea and the landscape, however, share the same beauty: you can admire waters with spectacular shades of emerald green and a few granite rocks appearing on the surface. On the horizon, you can see the most distant islands of the Maddalena archipelago: Budelli, Razzoli and Santa Maria. Then, towards the promontory, you’ll notice the islet of La Marmorata: it can be reached aboard a pedalo and, on it, you can see what remains of a granite quarry from the Roman era.
