Not just wonderful beaches
The name Golfo Aranci derives from a misinterpretation of the cartographers of the mid-twentieth century: Gulfu di li Ranci, in Gallura, 'gulf of the crab', was translated with Golfo Aranci.
The village of Golfo Aranci extends on a tongue of land in the middle of the sea, overlooking the Gulf of Olbia.
The area was inhabited during the Nuragic Age, around the VII century BC, then it was a Roman port. The inhabited center, originally a fishing village, is today a lively village of colorful houses.
The territory of Golfo Aranci has over twenty beaches, some wild, others comfortable and equipped, but all characterized by breathtaking colors.
But it is not only the beaches that deserve a visit to Golfo Aranci.
The feast of the Assumption is not to be missed in mid-August. It is very popular in the village and during which the fish festival is held.
