The coast of Baunei
A real natural paradise, a pearl of rare beauty. Anyone who reaches this famous beach is amazed by the combination of unspoilt nature, that can be admired in the mountains above and the crystal clear sea highlighted by the sandy bottom. The characteristic rock arch and the needle that overlooks it (Punta Caroddi 160 m.) are the backdrop to this beautiful cove. Cala Goloritzè can be reached from the Golgo plateau after about 1 hour and 30 minutes of walking.
Ispuligidenie (Cala Mariolu)
This inlet is completely immersed in the green of the typical dense and fragrant Mediterranean scrub. On the high overhanging rocks various species of seabirds nest, such seagulls, the peregrine falcon, golden and Bonelli’s eagles, the Eleonora’s falcon and some specimens of vulture griffon. The water is very clear and the seabed is of a light green colour. The sand of the beach is thin and white.
Cala dei Gabbiani
The “Spiaggia dei Gabbiani”, is located between the most renowned Cala Mariolu and Cala Biriala. Its crystalline water with green and blue notes and the characteristic white pebbles, makes it equally attractive even if less frequented.
It owes its name to a colony of seagulls that populate it from sunset to morning.
The beach of Cala Biriala opens into the Gulf of Orosei under the Biriala forest, rich in vegetation and in particular with junipers that grow on the rocks.
The original natural rock arch that embraces the small beach and the extremely clear water rich in fish fauna, make this location particularly attractive, suitable for scuba diving or snorkelling.
A white sand beach well as high and wooded slopes are the setting for another wonder of this territory: Cala Sisine. A deep canyon that opens the doors to the wild Supramonte of Baunei, a realm of unspoiled nature, climbs up from the beach. Starting with a suitable car from Golgo plateau, in an hour’s drive between hairpin bends, and “jumps” in the river bed. At the road’s end it’s only 20 min. of walking to the beach, through the “codula” (which is a gully) and on really fascinating narrow paths.
Probably the best known of the beaches on the coast of Baunei, it’s also the northernmost on the border with the municipality of Dorgali. An almost 700 meters long beach and a clear sea, the beautiful freshwater lake behind the beach on which the blooming oleanders are reflected. The mouth of the “Codula ‘e Lune” blends in to the hinterland of one of the wildest and most unspoiled environments of all Sardinia.
