As trekking lover I couldn't miss the opportunity to visit Cala Goloritze on my Sardinian holidays. We were there in mid-September and our trip started in Santa Maria Navaresse. We got to the parking lot located about 750 m away from Su Porteddu by car. The road from Baunei is very winding, narrow and steep so people who are afraid... More

Beautiful beach. Make sure you take the right road to the starting point. If you turn onto a road with no signs for Cala Goloritze, it is not the right road. (Learnt this the hard way, taking an Audi A3 convertible off road for a long distance was pretty hilarious). The journey down is very scenic. Make sure you wear... More

This is not an easy hike! We were pretty much running down and It took an hour over uneven rocks. The uphill is very steep so leave extra time for this. Best done in the morning so you get there with sun on the beach. We got there in the afternoon and it was all shady. A good activity if... More

My wife and I recently visited il Golgo and had a wonderful day. We took the hike from the mountaintop to the seaside. The trail was well maintained and moderately challenging. Wear sturdy shoes suitable for rocky paths. The trail included incredible views, some historical structure and wildlife. A wild mountain goat even crossed our path. Well worth the 6... More

We followed the Lonely Planet's guide to get here, as did another couple that we met, and it doesn't get you there! Don't go to the Co-operative! If you're coming from Baunei then follow the signs to Golgo. This leads you up a windy road up the mountain and eventually you reach the Golgo plain. Continue on the road for... More

We visited a week ago and we loved it. This place is magic and it has an amazing energy. I would recommend to go early in the morning, the path opens at 7:30am and closes at 4pm. Bring water and some food and enjoy it as much as we did.

For the nature lovers and beach lovers one of the few hop on and off boat rides between Cala Gonone, Arbatax and Santa Maria Navarrese, but please be aware, respect this paradise as those who do not respect it will be prosecuted as it is protected. A must see in Sardinia. Motor boats restrictions apply !!!!!

It took me and my partner an hour to walk down to this beach, and only an hour and ten minute to get back up. We passed many people also doing this walk with proper kit and hiking boots and massive ruck sacks. You do not need all this, I wore a dress and trainers and only took a sandwich,... More

If you are going to be like us and decide to trek to this beach just hours before you are due to go to the airport - please don't. We debated that morning whether we should hire a boat and see all the beaches along the shore, or just trek to Cala Goloritze and unfortunately our sense of adventure and... More
