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, we will arrive at the first stop in Cala Mariolu.
After that, you will have the opportunity to admire the Cala Biriala forest, which gives its name to the beautiful cove that rises at the foot of the cliff.
