Simply the best. It gets crowded in the afternoon with big groups coming around 2pm. Otherwise it's beautiful. The most beautiful beach I've seen in Europe!

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

Cala Luna, Mariolu and Goloritze are among the cleaniest and more stunning beaches i've ever seen. Goloritze' is something else. Go in June or September, avoid the mass tourism and you will enjoy this beautiful spots. Rent a boat for all day and stay out all day.

This Beach you can reach by taking a boat from Orosei marina. It is just wunderfull - the Water is VERY clear and the colour is turqoise and blue. They are fish all over, so snorkeling is great as well. You can jump into the Water from a big Cliff - which is great fun. We have been on many... More

If you go to Sardinia and want to see an amazing sea, I always recommend to go the Golfo di Orosei where there are many beautiful beaches that you can reach by boat or on foot. Cala Mariolu si definitely one of them! It's a paradise.. P.s. It gets very busy between July and August.

I've been travelling all other the world for the past 25 years....and this beach is just one of the BEST ...I have ever seen. I was fearing it would be overcrowded, since we were in high season, but it was not. Would recommend to rent a Zodiac instead of going by foot (time consuming and not for beginners) or by... More

Beautiful beach (one of the best, with Cala Galoritze, I ever seen in my life) - the color of the water is simply unbelievable, like pure liquid transparent emerald. The beach whiter than white. Personally I find the" cale" of the golfo di Orosei number 1 attraction in Sardinia, better than Costa Smeralda. You reach it by boat. The best... More
