From the moment we arrived we instantly felt a connection! The water was warm, crystal clear, a swimmer and snorkeler's dream come true! As the Cala Mariolu is only accessible by boat, tourists are relatively few and at times we felt this piece of paradise...More

crystal clear water of an astonishing colour, white stones which are flat and smooth and just beautiful. You can jump from an cliff into the sea, which is 6 m deep.

Beach with taste of Caribean. White stone, crystal clear water, accessible only on boat. In August little bit overcrowded. For sure worthy to visit.

This was by far my favourite beach in Sardegna. It's better to access the beach by boat with many companies operating full day excursions from either Cala Gonone or Arbatax. I went scuba diving on this beach for the first time - it's supposed to...More

We took out a RIB [rigid inflatable boat] with a 40 hp outboard on it - a great way to see all the beaches & rock formations along the bay. All for EUR 150 including fuel from Lino Fancello at Dolmen - Servizi Turistici. He...More

White sand, ok, white little stones that make the water seem incredibly blue. It is the type of beach you meet in the Caraibeans. It is included in all boat trips so there are a lot of people on it, and it is not very...More

We accessed this beach by boat as we hired a boat for the day. This beach was definitely the prettiest of the one's we saw. The water is crystal clear and the rocks make it look pretty. However, it is such a busy beach. I...More

Considering the beaches we visited that day, this is really one of the best! It's a pity you could easily reach it only by boat, but this is probably also the reason why it is still so beautiful!

I think there is no closer place. And I think it is the best option to stay in cala Gonone and go with the boat to the Cala Mariolu because it is not far away. If you know how to drive a boat it is perfect.
