    • Meditazione e Yoga
    • Meditation

      Any attempt to find inner peace here is facilitated by the beauty of Sardinia, and in particular of our peninsula, which thanks to its shape, appears suspended between the earth, the sea and the sky by a sandy strip that ties it like a thread to terra firma. Time, too, seems to be frozen, and every passing moment is to be savoured
      Relax
    • Risveglio Muscolare
    • Muscle warm-up

      Here, when you wake up, you will be surrounded by the chirping of happy birds and the lapping of the waves. For a very soft start to the day, the entertainment staff hold pilates classes and half-hour aquagym sessions to warm up your muscles and get your circulation going, ready for the day ahead.
      Relax
    • spiaggia-new.jpg
    • Sun, sea and sand

      Choose to visit our small but perfectly formed (and fully equipped) beach, and have us prepare a mixture of fresh fruit for you. Or choose one of the various natural coves and lie back on the sun-kissed sand. You will be spellbound as you stare at the horizon, where the clouds dive into the water, and you may even catch sight of a couple of dolphins chasing after each other for fun.
      Relax
    • sotto_lorso.jpg
    • Photography

      Let yourself be tempted by our photo workshops, where you will learn how to look at the landscape, the starry sky and the creature-laden sea bed with a new perspective. Break out of your routine by taking a walk in search of the perfect place or the ideal light to immortalise your best shots.
      Relax
    • experience-pesca.jpg
    • Fishing

      First off, you will have fun venturing through the maquis in search of the ideal place out of all those on offer at the Isola dei Gabbiani. Preferably at dusk, when the bathers make way for diplodus, sea bream, sand steenbras and sea bass, you will settle down to enjoy the natural spectacle. Whether you’re interested in having a new experience with your adolescent son or a fishing competition with your friends, we can organise dedicated boat trips to take you to the places that are teeming with fish.
      Relax
    • Paradiso dei Cetacei
    • Paradise of the Cetaceans

      Imagine a day of total relaxation spent marvelling at the islands of the archipelago that we overlook. The wonderful section of sea encompassed by our panorama begins with that renowned slice of marine paradise where dolphins and whales swim about searching for plankton, giving those lucky enough to witness them a show that will never be forgotten. You can take out one of our little dinghies and become captain for a day, or plump for the simpler option of being a passenger on larger boats skippered by old sea dogs who’ll do all the hard work while you sit back and admire the beauty of nature. Another alternative is to take a sail boat and let yourself be pushed along by the wind.
      Relax
    • Le Dune all'Isola dei Gabbiani
    • Walking through the dunes

      Take advantage of the morning, when the fresh northwest wind fills the air with the fragrance of Mediterranean maquis, to enjoy a long walk through the untainted dunes that guard the island and extend all the way to the azure lake. You can also make your way to the mouth of the River Liscia, in the nearby bay of the same name. Here, you can observe the impressive dune system that reaches as far as Porto Pollo by walking on the small mountains of golden sand, protected by dedicated wooden walkways. The experience is sure to revitalise both body and soul.
      Relax

      This stretch of land, lapped by the sea, will surprise you day after day. Exploring the coastline in a canoe or on an SUP, you will stumble across little hidden coves, with natural swimming pools awaiting discovery by those who follow the reflections of the light as they swim.

    • Diving, snorkeling

      The sea bed is a constant source of amazement for those who go sub-aqua diving in this beautiful part of the Sardinian coast. The nearby Park of the Archipelago of La Maddalena plays host to multi-coloured fish set against breathtaking backdrops, and within just a few miles you can dive at some of the very best sites to be found anywhere in the Mediterranean, such as the famous Secca delle Cernie at Lavezzi and the Secca del Papa at Tavolara. Even if you’re not experts, these places will amaze you with every dive.

    • Sailing, Windsurfing and Kitesurfing

      Everyone can experience the emotions of the ever-changing wind and sea.

      Sport
    • Nordic-walking.jpg
    • Nordic walking, fitwalking, cycling, fitness, horse riding

      Rather than putting their feet up while on holiday, many of those who engage in sporting activities throughout the year want to take advantage of the opportunity to try out new sports, such as Nordic walking and fitwalking. On the Isola dei Gabbiani, you can go walking with poles along a number of different trails that bring you into direct contact with the natural world and show you all manner of unexpected panoramic views. These same stunning vistas can be seen by taking a trip on a mountain bike or on horseback, surrounded by the aroma of Mediterranean maquis. For your fitness training we have set aside a small outdoor fitness corner.
      Sport

    • Beach volleyball, jogging, bowls

      Sun and salt water are the perfect combination for a holiday at the Isola dei Gabbiani, because they are synonymous with wellbeing. Here, they keep you company every day, from dawn, as you run along the water’s edge amid amber reflections, until dusk, when the sky is tinted purple and you can enjoy a game of beach volleyball with your neighbours, have a kick-about on the sand or get stuck into a beach tennis mini-tournament with friends old and new. Here, it’s so easy to socialise – a bit like the way children do while they’re building sand castles. The entertainment staff will deal with the small matter of keeping your children happy by organising fun outdoor games and intriguing creative workshops.

    • The archipelago – a UNESCO World Heritage Site

      The archipelago that links Sardinia with Corsica, with its seven main islands and 40+ islets, is certainly worth spending a day exploring. Everyone chooses their own rhythm – the slow pace of the sail boat or the speed of the dinghy. In either case, you will have access to wonderful perspectives on islands such as Spargi, Budelli and Caprera. In between dives into the most attractive waters imaginable, you will have great fun trying to identify which animals the rocks, shaped over millennia by wind and water, have ended up by pure chance resembling. The whale-watching tours are a must – they take you on the whale routes, where long-cherished dreams come true as you sit back and observe these magical creatures at play.

    • Turtle-watching and birdwatching

      If you choose to take a holiday at the Isola dei Gabbiani, you will enjoy an experience in direct contact with the pristine natural environment of northern Sardinia, in a truly evocative corner of the Gallura area. Here, you can sit back on your veranda and watch the dramatic dives of the cormorants. Alternatively, you can stroll amid myrtle and mastic awaiting a tortoise – that placid travelling companion who just might want to make his or her way along the road with you. All of the inhabitants of our natural paradise are protected. When you arrive, we will give you all of the information you require to help us safeguard their habitat.

    • Spiagge e Rocce granitiche
    • Rocky lunar landscapes

      Attractive and fascinating, Sardinia encompasses a stunning variety of landscapes. It looks for all the world like a painting that has come to life, in which the enchanting sea cradles jewelled islands watched over by rocky sentinels. Arriving in the Gallura area, you will see the lush cork-oak forests merge into undulating vineyards, while the mountains are blown with winds at once musical and silent. Once here, you can spend innumerable hours discovering the multitude of landscapes on offer: from the lunar, granite monoliths of the northern part of the island and the canyons of the River Liscia to the woodlands of Mediterranean maquis and the untainted dunes.

    • Calette nel Nord Sardegna
    • A cove for everyone

      The often isolated and wild nature of this part of the island encourages exploration with that sense of adventure that makes everyone a little giddy. Hidden coves, sandy beaches and rocky inlets are ready and waiting to welcome you as fledgling explorers. Search out these little-known jewels by jumping onto an SUP and sailing across the emerald water, or by taking a walk enveloped by the aroma of myrtle berries.

    • Giagons-51.jpg
    • Rock statues

      To fill your days with fun and amazement, you can set out to discover the numerous rock statues to be found here. It is as if time has used a chisel to sculpt the imposing rock “bear” that gives its name to Capo d’Orso, which looks out to sea just 3 miles from the town of Palau. This stone giant is very much worth a visit while you are exploring the island’s coves and beaches.

    • Archaeology and energy

      Sardinia is an ancient land, and for this reason it is scattered with monuments that link heaven and earth – places with high levels of “vibrational energy” in which you can meditate freely, surrounded by archaic symbols that restore wellbeing and harmony to the body. Around the Isola dei Gabbiani there are numerous archaeological sites to explore, such as the “giants’ tomb” at Li Mizzani, which is more than 3000 years old, not to mention the wealth of military architecture, such as the raised fort at Monte Altura, which dates from 1887.

If you want to go off the beaten track, you can explore an array of alternative, unusual routes that unite entertainment and culture and take in Domus de Janas (fairy houses), mines, caves, shepherds and panoramas the like of which you have never seen before.

The ingredients are just the start of the culinary journey. And perhaps you’ll go home and amaze your friends by preparing a typical Galluran “zuppa cuata”, the main ingredients of which are bread and pecorino cheese.

You can spend delightful evenings in pleasant company, tasting everything from cheese, meat and roast fish to bread with an ancient flavour and sweets redolent of bitter honey.
