At a glance
Moderate. The climb to the Genna Silana is a little over 1000 metres of altitude gain. However the gradient is pretty gentle.
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.
Entirely on surfaced roads in good condition.
This section takes you into the Gennargentu mountains. It's a pretty gentle climb and the scenery definitely makes the effort worthwhile.
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.
