Close to the promontory of Capo Bellavista, where the lighthouse is located, we find Arbatax, an ancient fishing village near the port it is named after. Arbatax is also the red cliff that is known all over the world for its “red rocks:” overlooking the contrasting blue of the sea, Arbatrax is other worldly in its beauty.
Arbatax is also the Belvedere that overlooks the small Cala Moresca, a strip of very fine sand set in a coastal stretch of alternating granite and red porphyry rock.
