An out-of-this-world oasis in Sardinia (Italy)
The shining white of the sand will suddenly open up before you after a long road framed by junipers, pines and holm oaks. The feeling is of a place out of this world, in reality it exists, and how very much, it is the oasis of Bidderosa (Sardinia - Italy): five dreamy coves guarded in a park of 860 hectares, largely formed by woods and Mediterranean scrub, protected by the Forestry Authority and entrusted to the municipality of Orosei, from which it is 13 kilometers north

Enchanting landscapes to explore

You will swim and snorkel in waters with a constant depth even tens of meters from the shore. The oasis is also includes Mount Tuttavista, cloaked in cork and holm oaks, Fuile 'e Mare and Senna 'e Sachita, covered with Aleppo and domestic pines, where you'll find tables for picnics and relaxation during sultry hours.

Magical places to discover
Eucalyptus trees, junipers and Mediterranean essences will welcome you at the end of the dirt access path to the creeks, which winds through the pine forest and skirts the sa Curcurica lagoon (the moorhen in Orosei dialect), populated by resident and migratory birds, which you will observe from birdwatching stations. Next door is Mount Urcatu: from the summit you'll see miles of neat trails and clean beaches. Bidderosa is the pearl of Orosei, a renowned tourist center that can boast Cala Liberotto, Cala Ginepro, Marina di Orosei and Cala Osalla, on the border with Dorgali, among other dream beaches.

There are birdwatching spots
Along the way you are enthralled by this picture-postcard paradise, so be careful not to get too distracted while driving, although the required speed is that of 20 km/h, to avoid hazards and ground dust. Rushing does no good and makes you miss the moment on exciting floristic details. Along the dirt stretch you will come across the huge pond of Sa Curcurica and the smaller pond of Bidderosa. On this drive to the beaches you will observe signs pointing out Birdwatching, which are strategic spots where you can admire bird species such as pink flamingos, grey herons and egrets. There are also various signs for trekking routes
