About the location

The Hotel Capo D’Orso boasts a stunning beach of soft white sand just moments away on foot, perfectly sheltered from the wind. The Cala Selvaggia, famed for its romantic atmosphere, is only a few steps away and through a short passing is the phenomenal sparkling Sardinian sea, dotted with hammocks. Santa Teresa Gallura, another dazzling white sand beach with hidden coves and creeks, is also nearby.

The hotel is within easy reach of the gateway to the charming Maddalena Archipelago, a National Park island with white beaches and bright blue waters. For a view more rustic and unbeknown to tourism, remote and rugged landscapes can be found a short walk away. Still, there is more to discover in the magical North Sardinia - the famed Costa Smeralda, a glamorous side of the east coast, is home to coffee sipping yachters, a stunning marina and spotless bays.
