We came to this beach with privat boat and was overwhelmed over the beautiful beach. Not white sand but white gravel beach with turquoise clear water. Very family friendly.

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
