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.

Hiring a boat in Cala Gonone and sailing around was one of the best days of my entire life, and Mariolu was an absolute highlight of it. Stunning water, rock formations, and we could dock to enjoy the picnic we'd packed and actually capture the beauty of the beach. There's a little stall where you could buy drinks, ice cream... More

The beach was beautiful. Cristal clear waters, beauty everywhere. Only reachable by boat. The beach is not sandy, like all of them in this part of Sardinia, it was full of pebbles, and that, after whole day, might be a bit disturbing, nevertheless, a must see in Sardinia. BEWARE of the wasps!!!! At least when we went, there were millions!!!!

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.
