Costa Paradiso

Overview

A strip of coastline among hidden coves and thousand-year-old olive trees 

In northern Sardinia, between Santa Teresa Gallura and Castelsardo, Costa Paradiso lies in the municipality of Trinità D’Agultu e Vignola. It is a strip of coastline characterised by pink granite, dense Mediterranean scrubland, coves, fjords and natural pools. For outstanding beauty, you can visit the cove of Porto Leccio, sheltered from the easterly winds, along with the beaches of Li Cossi, Le sorgenti, Li Tamerici and Le Baiette. Lu Litarroni, Rena Majore and Cala Sarraina are also nearby. 

Thanks to its geographical position, it is the ideal starting point for numerous excursions, from cultural trips, including to the medieval village of Aggius, and nature hikes, like to the nearby Valle della Luna, the Capo Testa promontory and the wild inlet of Monti Russu. We also recommend exploring the thousand-year-old olive trees of Carana, in Luras: the oldest tree is thought to be the one named S’Ozzastru, with a circumference of 12 metres, a height of 8 metres and an age of between 3,000 and 4,000 years. 

An hour’s drive from the coast is the Giants’ Tomb of Coddu Vecchju, a mass Nuragic tomb in the locality of the same name near Arzachena.
