Spiaggia di Cala Ginepro


A small jewel of Ogliastra

In the centre of the east coast of Sardinia, at the northern end of the Gulf of Orosei, the Cala Ginepro beach spans an impressive 436 metres. This small jewel of Ogliastra, adjacent to the extensive Lido di Orrì, lies at the base of the Punta Muxi promontory in the coastal area of Tortolì. It is nicknamed “il golfetto” (the little gulf) because it is enclosed by two cliffs to the north and south.

The fine white-sand beach is washed by crystal-clear, turquoise waters, with a shallow seabed, and surrounded by Mediterranean scrubland. The dense vegetation around the dunes includes juniper, pine, eucalyptus, broom and myrtle, which provide shelter during the hottest hours of the day.

Cala Ginepro beach boasts an enchanting palette of colours chosen by nature, from the bright green of the pine forest to the pure white of the grains of sand, from the blue of the sea to the reddish colour of the granite rocks.

The seabed is perfect for snorkelling, diving and underwater fishing, while the windswept Cala Ginepro beach is also popular among surfers.
