The first stage is a continuous up and down along the coast but the climbs / descents almost never exceed one kilometer in length and the road along is dotted with “attractions” of all kinds.
The controlled speed stretch begins at the 75th km, is hilly with many stretches of plain and ends just before entering Santa Teresa Gallura; the final stage is located in Via Nazionale, right in front of the town hall of the tourist town.
The things to see and / or do are essentially in the initial part of the route: among the major ones, the initial Olbia-Golfo Aranci road stands out (a beautiful view of the gulf with the Island of Tavolara in the background); the Costa Smeralda with its endless beaches and Porto Cervo and its famous gems (the Pevero Golf, the Capriccioli and Pevero beaches, the Piazzetta, the Porto, the Night Billionaire, etc.); the coastal road Cannigione-Palau and the panoramic point of Palau from which you can see the entire archipelago of La Maddalena. It is a constant delight for the eyes!
Then, after Palau, the road enters the interior and begins the timed stretch that reaches S. Teresa among the rocks of Gallura.
