Golfo di Orosei at sunrise seen from Cala Gonone, Sardinia Italy.<br />
For sheer stop-dead-in-your-tracks beauty, there are few places to match this gulf, forming the seaward section of the glorious Parco Nazionale del Golfo di Orosei e del Gennargentu. Here the high mountains of the Gennargentu abruptly meet the sea, forming a crescent of dramatic cliffs riven by false inlets, scattered with horseshoe-shaped bays and lapped by exquisitely aquamarine waters. Beach space is at a premium in summer, but there’s room for everyone, especially in the rugged, elemental hinterland. <br />
