Golfo Aranci Guide

Located on the island of Sardinia, the Italian town of Golfo Aranci is in the Province of Olbia-Tempio and is around 200 km to the north of Cagliari and 13 km to the north east of Olbia. It also lies on the gulf that is located on the north eastern coast of Sardinia. There are two possible meanings for the name Golfo Aranci.

The first centres around a shipwreck that was carrying oranges and the second is linked to the Sardinian term "granci' which are crabs that can be found in the area. Of the two, the second is perhaps the most plausible. Many visitors to the town visit the beaches found on the gulf itself, however, the town's beaches are also beautiful and include Cala Moresca, Cala Greca, Cala Sabina and the spiaggia Bianca. Also located nearby is the island of Tavolara, which is a marine reserve, and the beautiful Capo Coda Cavallo. Finally, the islands crystal clear, warm waters make it a haven for visitors who want to engage in water sports, especially scuba diving.

From the port connections are made to Italy via daily ferries to the ports of Civitavecchia, Livorno and Fiumicino. Facilities at this small port are limited to a departure lounge, café and a small convenience store.


Nice Guide

Thecity of Nice in France is the capital of the Cote d'Azur and is a world famous cosmopolitan tourist destination and is perfect for sun lovers. The coastline around the city is spectacular and is popular all year round with its warm and sunny summer months, and mild winters. Many visitors to the resort choose to simply relax on one of the many beaches or to swim in the azure waters off the coast. There are many free stretches of public beach in the city but there are also around 15 private beaches, called 'plages concedees', where sun loungers can be hired.

Another popular pastime whilst in the city is to take a stroll along the Promenade des Anglais (the Promenade of the English) which dates back nearly 200 years and borders the city's Mediterranean Sea coast and runs for about 6 km. There are many beautiful spots along the promenade where visitors like to sit and take in the spectacular views. The coastline of Nice is full of tourist attractions, and nearby there are also a number of appealing Côte d'Azur towns and cities. Also close to Nice are many traditional Provençal villages, which are full of character.
