Testimonial of the coast of Baunei and of the entire Gulf of Orosei, Cala Goloritzé is a place where time stands still: there is only the melody of the waves that break on the beach to mark the hours. The typical Mediterranean scrub reigns supreme on the cliff that surrounds the beach, not leaving to chance even the perfumes of the earthly paradise.
Cala Goloritzé is like a painting born out of a dream, or like a dream from which one would never want to wake up. This is the first thought that comes to mind in its view, the first time like all those after. The cliff, more than 10 miles after the port of Santa Maria Navarrese, gently recedes inside the coast, leaving room for endless white pebbles. Here is Cala Goloritzé, one of the stretches of the Gulf of Orosei where the sea and the mountains meet in perfect harmony. By the east side, a crystalline sea that fades from an intense blue to an incredible turquoise will leave you surely enchanted. By the south, a stone arch plunges into its crystalline waters and further enriches this scenic Baunei’s inlet. Always towards south, but this time towards the promontory behind, Punta Caroddi rises. It is a 147 meters high, above sea level, spire, which stands out on Cala Goloritzè with its fascinating form of an eagle.
Besides being a dream place, Cala Goloritzé is also a very important place of interest in terms of flora and fauna. After becoming a natural monument since 1993, it has been protected from pollution and human presence since 1989. It is possible to reach it only by land, and navigation is prohibited in the surrounding water surface with any type of boat. Nature, once again, has nevertheless done its duty and protects it from man, making any landing by motor vehicles impossible. By land, there is only one way to get there: more than an hour’s walk, with a drop of over 400 meters, through the path of Bacu Goloritzé. In ancient times, this gully was one of the few access routes through which the Saracens managed to penetrate the impervious and wild Supramonte Baunese (which was, precisely for this reason, excluded from the defensive system of towers built by the Spaniards to defend the island).
