According to a widespread etymology, the name Arbatax comes from the Arabic arba’at’ashar (dialect: arba’?ash) that means “fourteen” and probably indicated the fourteenth watchtower, very common on Sardinian coasts; a well-preserved “Spanish tower” can actually be found in this city to confirm this theory. Thanks to its strategic position, Arbatax is the door to the Ogliastra region, and those who arrive by ferry can admire the beauty of the port, located below this picturesque coastal town.
The fascinating Rocce Rosse (Red Rocks) are one of Abatrax’s most famous attractions: gigantic cliffs of red porphyry create a scenery of incomparable beauty in this area, located within the town centre, at the port entrance and below the Bellavista hill. The beach is made up by granite pebbles and red porphyry.
Another breathtaking seaside location is Cala Moresca, where the beach is made up mainly by granite pebbles. Cala Moresca is considered by the locals “their personal unspoilt paradise”.
