Location: North-East of Sardinia
The forest of Bolostiu is located in the district of Alà dei Sardi, in the Province of Olbia and Tempio, and covers a surface area of 2609 acres. The forest gets its name from the holly (bolostiu, in Sardinian): a mesophytic species ( that is a species that grows in areas that are neither too humid or too dry) that once used to dominate the scrub of this area. At present the forest is very rich in young broad-leaves and conifers, the result of a careful work of reforestation. In a not so distant past, this area was probably covered by a dense forest of evergreen oaks, as confirmed by the inhabitants' statements and the presence, now less numerous, of these trees.
In the forest, after a quite inaccessible path, you reach Cazza Noa, where you can admire an impressive waterfall.
