What you will visit with boat trips in the Gulf of Orosei
The boat trips, carried out by motorships Imperatrice, Davide, Galana and others, depart from the port of La Caletta and stop at the spectacular beaches of the gulf, including Cala Luna, Cala Sisine and Cala Mariolu. During the navigation it will be possible to admire and take pictures of the coves, such as Cala Goloritzè, the cliffs and the wonderful inlets. On request it is possible to visit the suggestive “Grotta del Fico” caves.
The wonderful Cala Luna beach, considered one of the most beautiful in the Mediterranean, is framed by steep rock walls and characterized by shady and large natural caves that provide sun shelter during the warmest months. The beach plunges into a blue and crystalline sea and a shallow seabed, which is perfect for children. The stop in Cala Luna lasts 1/1.5 hours and is included in the Davide motorship schedule. Because of navigation safety, often determined by the changing conditions of the seabed at the landing points on Cala Luna beach, the captain reserves the right to replace the Cala Luna stop with Cala Sisine or another cala of the Gulf.
Overlooking the cliffs of the Serra Ovra which descend steeply into the sea, is just as spectacular as Cala Luna and is about 200 meters wide. It is flanked by rocky ridges, while the gorge is covered by the greenery of centuries-old carob and holm oak trees. The waters are turquoise and transparent, the seabed is made of sand with clear limestone grains and rounded stones, which is ideal for those who love diving and snorkeling. The stop on the beach, which usually lasts 1/1.5 hours, is included in the schedule of the motorships Davide, Imperatrice and Galana.
Located in Baunei area, strikes visitors eyes for its infinite shades of blue, emerald green and light blue waters. The cliff that surrounds the beach reaches 500 meters in height and falls steeply into the water, creating a dreamy scenario. The stop on the beach, which usually lasts 1.5/2 hours, is included in the schedule of the motorships Davide, Imperatrice and Galana.
The immaculate and wild Cala Goloritzé, Baunei’s testimonial, is one of the coastal stretches of the Gulf of Orosei where sea and mountains meet in perfect harmony. This beach is a national monument and has been protected since 1995, being the most photographed beach in Ogliastra. All motorships include a photo stop here.
Grotta del Fico (optional visit)
The suggestive Grotta del Fico, the last refuge of the now extinct Mediterranean monk seal, is formed by a magnificent set of stalactites, stalagmites, columns of different sizes and colors that surround each wall of the cave. A system of tunnels and easy passages penetrates deep into the cave, which is located inside steep cliffs overlooking the sea of the Gulf of Orosei. The guided tour of the cave lasts about an hour (800 meters walking trail along easy passages) and could replace the stop at one of the beaches.
