Set between two rivers at the centre of a natural amphitheatre created by Monte Oro, Lotzorai is a farming town-tourist destination in the north-eastern part of Ogliastra and boasts more than 2,000 inhabitants. The town’s layout is typical of rural communities: large houses with spacious courtyards. The narrow streets of the old town centre crisscross over one another and offer some lovely settings. Around town are vegetable patches, olive groves, vineyards and orchards with citrus fruit, while along the seven kilometre long shoreline are hotels and restaurants frequented by sea and nature enthusiasts, by rock climbers, hikers and cyclists. The coastline starts at the little tourist resort of Tancau and leads to the peaches of Pollu, Lido delle Rose, Iscrixedda and Isula Manna.
