The port-town of Golfo Aranci, literally translated as The Orange Gulf, sits upon the jagged coastline of a peninsula to the north-east of Sardinia. This beautiful, Italian commune is built in a curve along a bay of the crystalline Tyrrhenian Sea. Once a thriving fishing village, the area has mellowed into an idyllic summer retreat where visitors can relax on the beach and bask in the sultry glow of the Mediterranean sun.
The port is located at the western end of town at a point where the narrow network of downtown streets, their edges adorned by a vibrant blaze of shrubs, trees and flowers across the entire spectrum of colours, open up into the industrial district. The ferry terminal is found on the most central of the three piers that shape the harbour. It is a relatively small facility with a few passenger amenities including a car-park with designated disabled spaces, a toilet, a check-in terminal and a neat system of lanes to help organise the traffic arriving at the port. A cafe with an outdoor seating area can be found near to the harbour too.
Golfo Aranci is supplied by a host of transport links that make travelling to and from the port a straightforward affair. A public transport terminal located just a 5-minute walk from the harbour hosts both bus and train routes to various locations across Sardinia including one train service that heads towards the historic city of Olbia. Only one road, the Via G. Marconi, leads in and out of the town, heading west over the inland hills towards the motorways that cut all the way across the large island.
A number of ferry routes leave from the port a few times throughout the week. Corsica Sardinia Ferries offer a northbound service to the town of Porto Vecchio on the nearby island of Corsica and a longer journey to the city of Livorno on the Italian mainland. Another route takes passengers along the western edge of Corsica before sailing to Nice on the coast of France.
