Cala Biriola

Overview

The soul of Sardinia

It is said that reaching this cove on foot, along the path that skirts the limestone cliffs until you get lost in the Mediterranean scrub, amidst the scent of juniper and that of salt, is one of the most exciting and powerful experiences Sardinia has to offer. Seeing is believing. Cala Biriola is truly a natural beauty, where every word pales in comparison with the reality of a landscape of wild, unspoilt beauty.

You are in the Baunei area, right in the middle of other wonders such as Cala Goloritzè and Cala Luna. The beach of rounded white pebbles, protected by the cliff, opens up at the end of a grove of centuries-old holm oaks, rock-hugging junipers and Mediterranean scrub as far as the eye can see. Framed by a rock arch that emerges from the waters with colours ranging from blue to emerald green. Clear waters teeming with fauna make it ideal for diving and snorkelling.

Cala Biriola can be reached by sea from the ports of Arbatax, Cala Gonone and Santa Maria Navarrese. More challenging and recommended only for the most experienced trekkers, the route by land, which starts from theGolgo di Baunei and includes, before descending along the cliff, some sections of climbing.
