This family-run hotel enjoys a truly privileged position within the seaside town of Golfo Aranci. 

Nestled in a corner between two fine sandy beaches, Gabbiano Azzuro hotel is surrounded by crystal clear, shallow waters with stunning views out over the bay and across the coastline on one side, while having direct access to a narrow stretch of gently shelving beach on the other. One of the region’s first hotels, its long standing staff members offer a genuine warmth and friendliness which adds to Gabbiano Azzuro’s relaxed and welcoming feel.

Modern white furnishings and shades of pale blue provide a light and airy seaside ambience within the spacious reception areas which open out onto sunny terraces and a pool area from which there is ample seating to admire the sea view. All the bedrooms are comfortably furnished and each has a balcony overlooking the sea, beach or village. High quality and beautifully presented cuisine is available from the hotel’s main restaurant which has an indoor and an outdoor area with views across the beach. Menu options include local specialities and freshly caught fish which are highly recommended, along with a sumptuous choice of international cuisine. Snacks and drinks are also available from the hotel’s adjacent beach bar.

A short pathway leads to a private area of the beach, equipped with sunbeds and parasols and for the active there’s a number of water sports and boat excursions close to hand. The town is just a few minutes stroll away making this hotel an excellent base for both couples and families seeking accommodation right by the beach with a range of facilities on the doorstep and within walking distance of bars, shops and restaurants.

THINGS TO SEE & DO

Porto Cervo
An up-market town and centre of indulgence, it is located around two yacht harbours on the north side of this dazzling stretch of coastline, and being the main resort of the area and a paradise for the jet-set, it’s definitely worth a visit.

Prehistoric Sites at Arzachena
Visit the prehistoric remains including the Albucciu Nuraghe – a bronze age tower, the Tomba dei Giganti Coddu Vecchiu and the Li Muri Necropolis, scattered around the town.

Inland Gallura
Explore by car or on foot the dramatic mountains of the interior, the rugged countryside and the small character towns and villages. Alternatively, leave your car in Palau and take the stream train to Tempio Pausania, a spectacular journey across the Galluran countryside.

Agriturismo
Sample traditional Sardinian cuisine in a farm restaurant. Amongst others, we recommend the Agriturismi Tenuta Pilastru, la Sasima or la Somara, all located near Arzachena.

Watersports
Discover the exquisite coastline from the sea and enjoy the excellent conditions of the north east coast for wind-surfing, sailing, diving, snorkelling, etc.
