Cala Mariolu, Baunei
(4.9/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
Accessible by sea, Cala Mariolu gets its white color from the tiny stones that make up the beach. If you prefer to journey to the beach by land, a hiking trail with recently added safety railing leads to the cove. A local guide will take you on the safest route. Diving, snorkeling, and trekking are popular activities. The difficulty of the terrain means there are few facilities, so bring enough water and food for the day. Cap off your active day with some downtime on the beach between the epic rocks of the white cove. A visit to Cala Mariolu represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Baunei itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • A Caribbean corner at our House. Transparent sea, once you are amazed by its beauty, along the way you can see the entire boat me high above this is many other coves.

  • During the one-day tours of the Gulf of Orosei also visited this beach. And just my luck. Incomparable to any other of the Golfo di Orosei. Beautiful. On the site of a small bar with coffee and ice cream. If I could go there again I would choose the option to spend your time only to Cala Mariolu.

  • If you are in the Gulf of Orosei is a must for a boat trip in the coves ... is the third time we go and Cala Mariolu for me is the most beautiful ... bring water and something to eat, the only stage where you can buy at the bar is Cala Luna.

  • Sometimes I do not have words to describe the Nature. Cala Mariolu is one of the famous and beautiful beaches at the Gulf of Orosei. The water is crystal clear. The presence of white rocks near to the beach give its unique beauty. The best way to visit Cala Mariolu is by boat. Boats are available at the Cala Gonone.
  • Beautiful beach. Four stars only because it got really crowded with large tour boats dumping hundreds of beach goers.
  • Incredible blue water, lovely rock formations, and a kiosk with some food & drinks. Great place to relax for a day.
  • One if the best beaches in Sardinia. Don't miss it
  • I'm Sardinian, I'm used to beautiful coastline and clear waters, so trust me if i say that this beach is the best we have. I strongly recommend to visit it in the early hours of the morning, as it fills up with hundreds of people later on.
