Cala Sisine

Beyond Cala Luna you will find Cala Sisine between two large, rocky stretches of coastline, decorated with a thick, rich wood of age-old hollies. The beach has got intensely white limestone sand that is composed of small pebbles smoothed by the action of the sea waves over thousands of years. They give transparency, reflections and incredible shades from azure to green to the sea.

Cala Luna

It is probably the most famous and celebrated cove of the Gulf of Orosei (and perhaps in the whole of Sardinia) and - according to many visitors - one of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean. The beach is 700 metres long and the sea has got wonderful azure-blue reflections that stand out against the green of the vegetation ( a wood of oleander trees lines the beach) and of the freshwater lake behind it.

Cala Fuili

It is the last beach reachable by car from the village centre taking the bue marino road.

the alluring transparency and tranquillity of its waters are famous and can be appreciated from the road above. a staircase leads down to the sandy pebble beach.

before reaching the shore, you pass through the cooling shade of a wood which is rich in the typical mediterranean shrub vegetation. cala fuili is well known by climbing enthusiasts, for whom the steep, panoramic cliff-faces form an ideal setting.

How to get there

you can reach cala fuili by car or by bike and walk down to the beach that is situated just below the road.

Ziu Martine

The beach is divided into three parts: a small area of fine sand, embraced on either side by stretches of white pebbles and volcanic rocks.

It can be reached via the enchanting panoramic road “Bue Marino” (“Sea Ox”) , which winds around the whole Gulf of Orosei.

On the high part of the road, there is a large car park from which a dirt track, steeped in the perfumes of the Mediterranean macchia shrubland, leads down to the beach.

How to get there

Take the scenic coastal road southwards and proceed for 3 kilometres, go past Cala Fuili and proceed up to Ziu Martine, where you can find a stairway near the car park that leads down to the beach.

Sos Dorroles

After a some-minutes walk, starting from the Palmasera Beach, you can reach the “Sos Dorroles” Beach south of Cala Gonone. Behind it you can admire the spectacular, characteristic face of limestone detritus. It is unique in Sardinia - and probably in the whole world – because of its intense orange colour. In fact, there was only a similar one behind the Central Beach of Cala Gonone, a bit further north, near the boat harbour.

Bars, hotels, restaurants, shops and various services are within easy reach.

This is the greatest and longest beach of Cala Gonone. Despite recent reconstruction work, its natural balance has remained unchanged.

A few hundred metres away from Cala Gonone’s promenade, it is an ideal beach for young people and families who love typical beach life.

It is surrounded by a number of bars, cafés and restaurants, so that sunbathing can be interrupted by a refreshing break.

Palmasera is a free beach and can be easily accessed by children and old people and there are driveways at the disposal of handicapped persons.

The Palmasera Beach stretches out southwards, beyond the last houses of the village of Cala Gonone, at the final stretch of the Viale Palmasera , where you can park your car.

Central Beach

This is the original beach of Cala Gonone. In the Twenties it was frequented by the bourgeoisie and the aristocracy during the summer holidays.

High above dominates the Art Nouveau Villa Ticca, a smart house from the same period, which is surrounded by a splendid garden.

S'abba Durche

This is a tiny beach (around 100m) of basalt, volcanic pebbles to the north of Cala Gonone. Its outstanding feature is the intense green colour of the sea, caused by the freshwater spring which mixes with the salt-water (hence the name). From the beach a small path leads to a series of white, limestone cliffs, ideal for those who enjoy suntanning on rocks. Proceeding a little further, one reaches the large caves of Bidiriscottai and “dei Colombi” - “of the doves” - both very impressive. A real paradise for free climbing and bungee jumping enthusiasts.

Cala Cartoe

Not far from, but of greater size than osala, is the bay of cala cartoe, which is enclosed on both sides by headlands. the landscape around the cove remains unspoilt by houses or other buildings. the cove is crossed by a stream to form a beautiful little pond.

the beach can be reached from dorgali (9 km) and cala gonone (10 km) proceeding along narrow , tarmac roads, both of them very scenic (later merging). only the last stretch is a dirt track. imposing oaks near the beach provide shadow and are the perfect spot for alfresco snacks and picnics.
