5. Golfo di Orosei: Baunei Coast Cruise with Swim Stops
Armed with a camera or your smartphone, you'll have the chance to capture in beautiful shots the extraordinary Baus waterfalls, the Grotta dei Colombi (Cave of the Pigeons) and the striking beach of Goloritzé, characterized by crystal-clear waters. You will visit the beaches of Cala Mariolu, Cala Biriala and Cala Luna, characterized by a unique panorama dominated by caves and forest.
The rendezvous is at 8:15 am at the port of Santa Maria Navarrese, hamlet of Baunei. We will be welcomed by the skipper and, after the usual introductions, we will board the dinghy and depart at 8:30 am.
Navigation will include several stops to capture the landscape in superb shots. In particular, we will stop at the Pedralonga Spire, the enchanting Baus waterfalls falling into the sea, the Cave of the Pigeons, and Goloritzé Beach, which boasts the most beautiful waters on the entire coast.
We will then also descend to the beach of Cala Mariolu, voted the most beautiful beach in Italy in 2016, and to that of Cala Biriala, dominated by a forest of holm oaks and junipers, and with the perfect seabed for snorkeling. We will also stop at Cala Luna, an 800-meter-long tongue of sand bordered by an oleander forest preceded by a freshwater pond. On our way, we will pass through Piscine di Venere, one of the most coveted coves for travelers.
We will then see the Grotta del Fico and on the way back the inlets of Portu Cuau and Portu Pedrosu, striking fjords developed between the walls of Capo Monte Santo. Finally, a scenic tour of the Islet of Ogliastra will await us before returning to port, around 5:00/17:30 pm. The tour lasts a total of 8 hours.
