The Costa Smeralda has been made famous not only for the attendance of international VIPs but also for the Rally which has grown in importance, becoming the Italian stage of the WRC and the only race entirely on dirt roads. These same Gallura roads are now recognized as one of the mountain bike paradises.
It is possible to travel tens of km on excellent dirt roads and reach practically any place both inland and towards the sea. It is no coincidence that the best known beach, Liscia Ruja can still be reached today through a dirt road, and so many others so that they can be connected without ever putting the wheels on the asphalt.
The mountain bike trails are practically everywhere and the practitioners are numerous as are the events involving this sport. Villa Anastasia is an ideal starting point for medium to long-haul routes around the most renowned coastal areas.
