Tourist information

Palau is a small town in the Province of Olbia-Tempio located at the very northern tip of Sardinia, roughly 140 miles to the north of Cagliari and around 20 miles north-west of Olbia. Palau is clearly one of the most magnificent and exceptional beachfront cities in Gallura and bordering the Emerald Coast. It's as well a major landing place for ferryboats arriving from Corsica and the archipelago of La Maddalena. Palau is most important for its stony shoreline, with Capo d’Orso – a large rock that looks unmistakeably like a bear. Tourist facilities in Palau are of a top standard and private accommodation and hotels here are good value for money.
