4.7
#2 of 11 in Things to do in Baunei
You'll need to make a trek to reach the turquoise water of gorgeous Cala Goloritzè. The picture-perfect beach is surrounded by Mediterranean plants and oak trees, which house wild goats and small pigs. Picnic tables and fireplaces are available. Bring an umbrella if you need it, as shade is limited here. Wear comfortable shoes for the hike, as the return trip is entirely uphill and rocky.

    A must go in Sardinia, an amazing little beach with such clear water. Be prepared for the trekking trail as it is not that easy, bring a lot of water with you. Since this year you have to pay 6 euros ...  more »

    We decided to get to the beach of Cala Goloritze walk with my little girl of 10 years. Left drive from Santa Maria Navarrese, at 6.00 am on 18/08/2017 arrived On Porteddu, trailhead, at approximately 6.30. Parked the car (free parking near the Bar) we walked the trail well marked. I would recommend to be On Porteddu already at 6.00 (at 5.30 would be ideal) to enjoy the colours and rumorii. The cost to get to the beach is €6 for adults and €3 for children: absolutely reasonable cost because finances who strives daily to maintain the site. The Office at the beginning of the path opens at 7.30 but staff will come to the beach at 8 to pay for the ticket. We passed many wild goats along the way; interesting the couches of the shepherds that you may encounter along the trail. After about 75 minutes we were at the beach; one word: "spectacular", one of the most beautiful beaches in Italy and a sea with the presence of many fish that'll tickle your legs. Even more impressive to be there in the early morning when the beach is deserted and are not yet on the rafts and boats that are the views of the coves that are beginning to arrive in the area by 9 am. The ideal time is from 16.30 back on, when the Sun begins to set and the path remains in the shade. The climb is much harder but still sustainable even for the less experienced, suitably equipped. Absolutely necessary the sneakers or better, bring many bottles of water (there is possibility to buy them during the journey or at the Cove), optional but useful shoes to go on the rocks. The umbrella as the first Cove you meet there is the shadow of the rock face. Experience a living for those who are in the area and loves nature.

    We went hiking with friends in 2012 and by boat this year. Clear water and spectacular Cove.

  • White pebbles (limestone) beach with crazy turquoise water. Definitely one of the most beautiful beaches in Sardinia, worth a visit although its a very short isolated strip that can get vert busy with tourist boats and people during the high season. Worth taking the hiking trail and get there by foot so that the beach opens up through the Mediterranean vegetation. Don't forget to bring everything with you as there is no food, water and facilities in the beach (as said before, its an isolated beach)
  • The most beautiful beach I've ever seen (maybe I haven't seen too many beaches?)
  • DON'T TRUST GOOGLE MAPS. FOLLOW THE SIGNS. we got lost in the woods and we were lucky we met with other people that were going the other way. One of them got stuck with the car and was lucky someone with a 4x4 pulled them out.
  • comfy shoes+food+lots of water and you are equiped to discover one of the most beautifull places ever. Also if you want to dive from that arch in the cliff, just before going down the beach, turn right and after some kinda scary monutain climbing that doesnt require any equipment you will get there.
  • Very nice beach but rocky. I recommend to visit, when weather is very sunny as sun hides quickly behind rocks.
