Villa Arancio apartments are about 250m from the main beach which is at the end of the avenue that leads from Sos Alinos to Cala Liberotto and then to the sea. This road ends with a round open space often used as a parking.
The shoreline of Cala Liberotto beach is divided into two parts by a characteristic
rock formation that develops towards the sea creating two creeks, a smaller protected one and a larger one with the characteristic pond besides sand dunes, rich in wildlife (many species of birds and fishes); this shape makes it one of the most beautiful beaches of Sardinia.
This pond is a nursery for fishes. As a result of winter rains, the natural barrier of sand towards the sea is shot down by the river current; young fishes, grown in the pond, take the opportunity to go offshore. At the same time the females from the sea come inside the pond to spawn.
During the spring, with his strength and perseverance, the sea overcomes the force of the river and settles back the sand blocking the exit of th fishes to the sea; fresh water filter into the sandy ground but the fries will stay inside the pond protected by numerous marine predators.
The dangers, however, are not entirely disappeared for the fries because the groups of canes along the pond are the ideal habitat for many birds and some harmless water snakes (there are no poisonous snakes in Sardinia).
To achieve these two fantastic and comfortable beaches you have to walk along an easy road or a little seasonal trail (open on summer) through the reeds; both paths are 250 meters long.
Cala Liberotto is characterized by a lot of bays and coves with sandy beaches, set among the rocks of a particular color, sometimes fading to pink and sometimes to pale yellow. On some beaches, the depth of the backdrop degrades in a gradual but steady way; and on other beaches degrades in a very soft way allowing children’s bathing enjoying the long waves. Beaches are all free and it is not admitted to leave umbrellas planted in the sand during the night (you risk a penalty and a kidnapping). The beach in front of Tirreno Hotel has an equipped area with chairs, beach umbrellas, beach volley and there you have the opportunity to rent pedal boats and windsurf (you can take private lessons).The cliffs of Cala Liberotto are low and accessible, and they represent a good place for rod fishing (surf casting); since the water is particularly clean it is rare to find mussels but it is easy to find sea urchins, although recently their presence has greatly declined because of their catching. Fishes below the surface are the classic Mediterranean fishes and it is easy to see bream, mullet, sarpi, bream, sparla, sole, weaver, stingrays, mullet, octopus, many shrimps, and much more; there are, although it is hard to see them, bass, a kind of barracuda. This one is absolutely not dangerous for humans and has a smaller size than the tropical species of the same family. In short, a lot of beautiful and .... tasty fishes.
Cala Liberotto is a fraction of the town of Orosei in Nuoro province; it is a place known for the beauty of the coast and the wonderful sea.
During 70s of last century many villas arose here; some of them, thanks to the absence of an urban planning, were built directly on cliffs. Fortunately, there are few houses in these conditions; most of the villas develop instead discreetly along the coast, hidden by beautiful pine forest.

In a few years Cala Liberotto has become one of the most popular location of Nuoro province and beyond.
