cala mariolu
The Orosei stretch of coast is marked by a wild scenery and some hidden gems.
Travel along the coast by boat is the best way to discover some of the most beautiful and inaccessible beaches in Sardinia, such as Cala Mariolu, a charming retried of turquoise waters and rugged cliffs.
One of the options for this trip is provided by the Ogliastra Nuovo Consorzio Marittimo. This one-day boat excursion departures from Arbatax. The trip has several stops along the coast in beautiful beaches (Cala Mariolu, Cala Sisine and Cala Luna) and caves (Grotta del Fico and Grotte del bue Marino). The journey is fun, the crew and diving instructors barely speak english, we all communicate with gestures, like italians in general, but everybody is very friendly!
Of course the best and more adventurous option would be to rent your own motorised dinghy (no experience is required!).
Here the mediterranean mountain and sea collided to impress!
