Very, very beautiful beach. Not that easy to get to, especially on a cloudy/rainy day, but it's totally worth the effort. The beach itself it's small, quiet and the rock formations around the beach and the trees that grow on it make Cala Mariolu a fairy tale destination. This is a must-see in Sardinia!

Not joking around here. Crystal clear water with friendly fish swimming nearby. Pretty rock formations and enough space to relax. Small food/drink shack. Must be reached... More

Sardinia has overall beautiful beaches. The clear water over white sand reflects the light in a stunning way.. a great island to spend a holiday,, late June, to end of July is the best time. The water is warming, August being the hottest month, but the crowds are manageable.. August is hot and very crowded, because all the mainland Italians... More

Cala Mariolu is reachable via organized one-day cruises for Golfo di Orosei. In one day you can land in two beaches and usually only see the spectacular bluest water ever in the famous Cala Goloritzè, where the sweet water of rivers mixes with the salty water in the sea and makes the color appears incredible to believe! Cala Mariolu is... More
