Red line – the itinerary

It takes about an hour of navigation to reach the first beach, during which you will get to admire a breathtaking view of the coast of Baunei. Approximately 15 minutes after the departure with the red line, Pedra Longa appears, a 128-meters high limestone natural monument (it is the only locality reachable by car in these forty kilometers of uncontaminated nature). Immediately after, there is the bay of Forrola and the Baus waterfalls. Just before the natural border between the Gulf of Arbatax and the Gulf of Orosei, marked by the head of Monte Santo, the Colombi Cave appears.
After crossing the cape, you’ll see the two “fjords” of Portu Quau and Portu Pedrosu. After fifteen more minutes of navigation, in which it will be possible to admire the Montes Insanes and the famous Cala Goloritzé, it’s time for the first stop at Cala Mariolu.
After Cala Mariolu, you will have the opportunity to admire the forest of Cala Biriala, which gives its name to the beautiful cove that rises at the foot of the cliff.
Between Cala Sisine and Cala Luna, about six to seven meters above sea level, you can spot the “Furrow Fossil Groove”, and, before Cala Luna, the beautiful Cala Ginepro.

The Caves
