Cala Biriola, Baunei

(4.8/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Lounge on the white sands of Cala Biriola, a small beach nestled between high hills and a forest of oaks and junipers. The clear water and rich wildlife create a perfect setting for snorkeling and scuba diving, while the surrounding hills offer ideal areas for hiking. Admire the view of the forest, the natural sandstone arch that plunges into the water, and the sunlight reflecting off the white pebbles. Don't forget to bring an umbrella--or a wide-brimmed hat--and shoes suitable for walking on pebbly terrain.

  • To visit in the off-season, because being very small d summer is really too crowded ... accessible by sea, by land, I would not recommend, is one of the most beautiful bays of Sardinia ... water as crystal clear and fine Pebble Beach ...

  • Bay can also be reached by a trek in which about half way, if part of the afternoon, you can stay in a cuile (= covile) abandoned. The trail is very impressive and scenic, not good at all for both the difficulties of orientation is because there are two passes "planes" which, however, are armed with fixed ropes. Near the arrival the Cove opens to the view in all its splendor and a steep descent brings you to the beach in a few minutes.

  • With Cala Mariolu and Goloritzè is at the top of the beaches of the coast of Baunei. water always chilly even in summer but crystal clear as never before. Unfortunately you can get there only with boats or rafts because the walk on the trail by hikers is quite busy (the difference in altitude is about 900 metres) and not recommendable if not stronger, also not to do in summer. Unfortunately in the warm season you have to deal with the influx of tourists who sometimes is really excessive. Still remains a wonderful place to visit.

  • Outstanding! Feels like swimming in an aquarium. Fish of all kinds and spectacular rocks on the seabed. One of the nicest snorkelate ever!

  • I think that anyone who goes to the Caribbean, he doesn't know what he's missing if first does not make a detour around here. I was there, and he went swimming with mask and snorkel, having also visited other cale and I totally agree with the other reviews.

  • In second place after Mrs. Mariolu. Round stones and white beach. Clear water .... go yourself!

  • Beautiful cala visited with one of the many mini-cruises that sail from Cala Gonone. Maybe not famous like the other creeks of the Gulf of Orosei but it sure has nothing to envy and is a feast for the eyes and soul. It has a beautiful beach made of white pebbles that plunge into waters. The halt allowed from our cruise was just 1:00 but surely would have stayed all day.

  • Gorgeous Cove accessible only by sea with the rafts. Not as crowded as it is not accessible by barges, who prefer Cala Luna and Mariolu. Highly recommended!
