What to see in the Gulf of Marinella, the ideal place in Sardinia for sports and nature enthusiasts, thanks to the presence of magnificent coves and beaches, including La Marinella.
Located in Gallura, in the north-eastern part of Sardinia, the Gulf of Marinella is not far from Porto Rotondo and Olbia.
It is a bay in Sardinia very suitable for pleasure boats, thanks to the Marana and Palumbalza ports.
The inlet is sheltered from the mistral wind, which predominates in other areas of Sardinia, and from the winds classified in the third and fourth sector according to the conventions of the wind rose.
Marinella, the main village of the gulf, is surrounded by a beautiful natural landscape and includes some of the best tourist facilities in the area.
The church of Punta Marana and the smaller church of the Madonna del Monte are the two churches included in the Gulf of Marinella.
The first, which is located in the town of the same name and dedicated to the Madonna Regina della Pace, is furnished with sobriety and used to say masses only in summer, the second, placed on a hill, has ancient origins, a legend tells that it was consecrated to the Madonna by a sailor in recognition of having escaped a shipwreck.
The main beach is La Marinella from which the gulf takes its name.
La Marinella beach, over 1 km long, is characterized by the fine white sand and being a quiet place but at the same time very equipped for practicing many water sports.
The panorama that can be enjoyed from here is splendid looking at the islands of Soffi and Mortorio.
On the Gulf of Marinella there are also many coves of different sizes that expand the offer for those who love the sea and want to immerse themselves in an almost still unspoiled nature.
