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.

Cala Biriola

Not far from Cala Sisine appears Cala Biriola with its distinctive natural rock arch.

This earthly paradise is situated under a dense wood which hides the charcoal burners’ old paths and tracks. Still today, you can find the traces of that hard business. In fact, scanning the cliff with attention, you can still notice the remains of the rails which were used to transport the coal to the beach where it was loaded on sailing ships.

Cala Mariolu

The colours of the sea and the transparency of the waters are unique in the Gulf; it’s a shade of azure that makes you think of a swimming-pool. The sand of the beach is fine and white.

Cala dei Gabbiani

Snow-white rocks rise up from crystal-clear water to create an attractive natural scene in this cove a short distance away from Mariolu.

Cala Goloritzé

Due to its beauty and the integrity of its environment, this extraordinary bay has been declared a Natural Monument of the Region of Sardegna by a regional decree. It is famous for its wonderful limestone arch rising straight from the sea and for its needle or sugarloaf – a 100 metres high limestone monolith of extraordinary beauty towering above the little bay.
