Dorgali (Sardinian: Durgali) is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Nuoro in the Italian region Sardinia, located about 230 kilometres (140 mi) northeast of Cagliari and about 38 kilometres (24 mi) east of Nuoro in the Seaside Supramonte mountain area.

Economy is mostly based on the vine and wine production and, in summertime, on tourism.

In one of the caves, Ispinigoli, the only known specimen of the extinct giant otter Megalenhydris was found.
