At a glance

Distance

85 kilometres

Difficulty/​terrain

Moderate. The climb to the Genna Silana is a little over 1000 metres of altitude gain. However the gradient is pretty gentle.

Traffic

The road between Baunei and Dorgali is relat­ively quiet as most local traffic takes the inland roads. However, the road is popular with motor­cyc­lists who seemed to outnumber all of the other road users put together.

Surfaces

Entirely on surfaced roads in good condition.

Overview

This section takes you into the Gennargentu mountains. It's a pretty gentle climb and the scenery defin­itely makes the effort worthwhile.

Beaches

The Golfo di Orosei is one of the most spectacular sections of the Sardinian coast, with some of the island's most famous, and photo­graphed, beaches such as the Cala Luna and the Cala Goloritzè . These are accessible only by boat, or on foot, from Cala Gonone.
