The small fishing village of Arbatax is situated on the Tyrrhenian Sea in the Ogliastra provence of Sardinia, 5km west of the nearest town, Tortoli, and home to a small but busy port. Arbatax is a territory rich in green Mediterranean scrub and the characteristic red rocks and masses of porphyritic granite.
Arbatax is a stunning place to be in the spring, when you can see an explosion of colours with the contrast of the rocks of the headland and the reef, the white sandy beaches and the limpid waters. A natural frame to this panorama are the surrounding mountains, the highest on the island.
Trenino Verde is a famous tourist train which takes you up the mountainous hinterland. From the light house which sits above the village you can see a breathtaking view of the village. All these beautiful surroundings and the choice of activities make Arbatax a particularly pleasant seaside resort for holiday makers.
More than 3 million passengers and 5 million tons of freight cargo pass through Olbia Ferry Port every year. Olbia port is divided into three areas the Cocciani Port, the Internal Port used for small cruise ships, the Isola Bianca Port for Ro-Ro ships and the new area being built for the larger cruise ships.
31 May 2012Arbatax to Olbia (Tirrenia) with Tirrenia di Navigazione
It was our fault not printing the boarding pass. But, we thought there might be a machine (kiosk) or office at the port. The office was closed on afternoon break and no passenger area for a ticket machine. We walked all the way to the auto loading zone only to find out we needed to walk back. No signs reading "Passenger Loading"...please have boarding pass ready. We were almost not able to board due to no boarding pass. Although we presented phone and confirmation numbers, we almost were not allowed on board. We understand that your site does read "print boarding pass"...but, we did not know that the office would be closed on break! Maybe, you could have in red text all upper case..."You must Print Boarding Pass"! It was raining and no clear where passengers should line up. Even locals asked us where to go. Nobody knew if we were in the right place. The ferry was 2 hours late...in the rain.
