Nibani is Sardinian and means sea gulls. In fact, many of them do often circle the small group of islands offshore. From Pevero beach, you drive to this bay over a dirt road.
This small, sandy beach can be found at the western end of the Golfo del Pevero facing the Isole di Li Nibani and surrounded by gorse and rocks. The shallow depth of the water also makes it ideal for children. How to get there from the centre of Porto Cervo: drive in a southerly direction for some 1.5 km. You should walk the last 50 metres to the beach, down a dirt road.
This is a wide beach with fine, very bright sand and bright clear water - just breathtaking. For nature lovers, the dunes covered with broom, juniper and lilies are a real pleasure. The beach is ideal for children. On-site facilities include a bar and sun loungers and beach umbrellas. You can reach the beach via the SS 125 towards Siniscola. At kilometre 295 turn left to Marina di Lu Impostu. You can also reach the beach on foot from the Cala Brandinchi beach car park.

Beach umbrellas, sun loungers, pedal boats are for hire.
La Cinta is the most famous beach in San Teodoro. A path through the broom and Mediterranean wildlife leads to the white beach. La Cinta is ideal for families with small children, but also for sun worshipers and bird lovers. You can reach the beach of Olbia on the SS 125 traveling southwards.

Do not miss an excursion to the islands of Tavolara and Molara. The island of Tavolara has the shape of a triangle, at the corner of which are Punta Timone, Punta del Papa (the cave once served as a hiding place for the Pope), Punta la Mandria and Coda di Terra. The nature reserve can be approached from Porto S. Paolo, depending on your preference, with large excursion boats or small motorboats (with or without a skipper). You can also go as part of an organised fishing boat excursion or as part of a diving excursion.
A further example of the Costa Smeralda's architectural style is the famous Cala di Volpe 5-star hotel, which was finished in 1963. Here the architect Jacques Couëlle managed to recreate an oasis from "Thousand and One Nights', which is particularly impressive for the design and special layout of the hotel bedrooms - they all have a panoramic view of the sea, yet they are barely visible from outside. The hotel lies on a bay of the same name, Cala di Volpe, at the southern end of the Pevero Golf Club golf course.
The small church above the Porto Cervo marina was designed in 1969 by the architect Michele Busiri Vici. With its dazzling white plaster and conically shaped bell tower, it is a prime example of the architectural style of the Costa Smeralda. This style is a reinterpretation of Mediterranean architecture specially designed for the Costa Smeralda in perfect harmony with the coastal landscape. The access road is located above the harbour and is signposted.
This Bronze Age holy temple site is situated inside an extensive archaeological site. Here one can also see several burial sites, as well as the Albucciu nuraghe. Nuraghi are stone towers that are thousands of years old, built out of boulders weighing many tons, and found exclusively on Sardinia. Drive from Arzachena towards Olbia on the SS 125. After about 600m, drive into the car park on the left hand side at "Nuraghe Albucciu" and then follow the signs on foot.
The giant tombs are the largest pre-Nuragic cult sites in Sardinia. Like the great rock tombs, they are monuments of the ancient culture of the Nuragic civilization, the Bonnanaro culture. Coddu Vecchiu is one of the most impressive giant tombs from the Nuraghi period (1800-1600 BC). The actual tomb is almost 11 metres long. The central trench plate, which is over 4 metres high, is the largest one found in Sardinia. From Arzachena take the SS 427 towards Sant'Antonio di Gallura-Calangianus. After about 3 km turn right towards Luogosanto, continue for 1.8 km and then turn left towards Capichera. After a few hundred metres, park the car and walk on the right hand side of the road to the excavation site.
The overall structure of this almost 27 metre long mass grave is especially well preserved. Fifteen granite slabs were driven into the ground here several thousand years ago to form the boundary of this site to venerate the dead. Drive from Arzachena towards Bassacutena on the SP 115. After 4.5 km, turn left at the junction and drive some 2 km until you reach the excavations.

The church of Madonna del Monte is a small rural church on the hill of Santa Maria di Figari.

The church now sits high up with a unique view over the Golfo di Marinella. From there you can reach the coastal road of Golfo Aranci, which leads in the direction of Golfo di Marinella.

Here Giuseppe Marconi experimented with success the broadcast of radio-telegraphic signals. From the top, you have a wonderful view over the islands Tavolara Figarolo, Mortorio and Golfo Aranci and with a little bit of luck, you will get to see some mouflons who pass through the Mediterranean shrubs.
