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.

  • Beautiful, there is a heaven... the morning early is the best! Especially if you make the crossing in the company of Sergio!

  • What to say, it is not enough to describe this wealth of nature. Beautiful beach, the Cove, the sea, the colors. Go out of season, to appreciate this beautiful slice of heaven.

  • Beautiful is the least we can say of this paradise of Sardinia. To visit possibly in days with little influx of tourists to enjoy the beauty of this beach. The crystal clear sea are unique and the stunning coastline is wild and priceless. Must see for those who come on holiday in Sardinia. .

  • 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.
