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.

Visited as part of a boat tour, this remains our favourite beach. By far the bluest and most beautiful. A must see if you have the chance. Chalky whit pebbles enhance the aquamarine.

This little Bay is one of the very best in the Gulf of Orosei. The colours in the water range from turquoise to green to purple to white. Heaven has to be snorkelling here!

This is the beach to go to by boat in the Golfo di Orosei. The water is aquamarine under plunging cliffs.

We went here with a tour boat, 'David e Golia', stayed for one hour, amazing water, wonderful beach with small white oval gravel. Only beach that narrowly beats this, is Cala Goloritzè ♡. You can dive from rocks with various altitudes, up to ~5m. You can choose to have natural shadow during the afternoon around 15.00. Bring your snorkling equipment!... More

A day on a motorboat, starting in Santa Maria Navarrese, gave us an incredible experience. The mountains, the rocks, the green sea, white small pebble beaches, sunny weather all sum up to a memorable day, in the top-5 of most beautiful days ever.
