This beach is a great place to be in Gulf of Orosei. It is only accessible by boat, and is large enough to welcome its visitors. There are rocks in the sea, some fish to observe, and you can take your small fridge with chilled wine when you unload on the shore using narrow passage for boats. This was one... More

We rented a RHIB from Dolmen in Cala Gonone, and this was one of our favorite stops. Crystal clear water, no crowds. Wonderful!

For me its the best beach in whole Sardegna. Ofcourse this is a matter of taste but the waters are the lightest blue i have seen due to the white pebbles in the water giving it this pool like natural light blue... Awww stunning to be completely honest... !! thats what the absence of road access and human intereference on... More

I've never seen such beautiful clear blue water in my life. It is simply stunning. August is very crowded as the Italians also take their vacation in this month. There is a great little snack bar with delicious panini, pizza and gelato. You can explore and find a cave...amazing! and also jump off rocks. We had and incredible time.

One of the most beautifull beaches in Sardinia on the Gulf of Orosei. Very blue and trasparent water with Stones and rocks surrounded by cliffs. Enjoyable with families including kids, as well as for people that like to lye on the beach or to swim and dive.Only remark Too crowded during High season peak.Ideally arrive early in the morning.

absolutely stunning water and views. great with the small kiosk/bar at the beach. we sailed from Arbatax and spend a couple of hours before we headed on to Cala Luna. In hindsight, we should have stayed here as this spot is so much more spectacular than Cala Luna

While my Girlfriend sat in the sun, i spent most if my time in the beautiful water. It was crystal clear when i got there, however when more people arrived it clouded up a bit. So with snorkel in tow there's alot to see. Beware there is jellyfish, I saw 1.
