cala luna

Cala Luna is the most beautiful Bay Beach in the Mediterranean

Cala Luna

Cala Luna is located 7 Km south of Cala Gonone after Cala Fuili and the Caves of Bue Marino. The best way to get there is by boat from Cala Gonone. By road is a bit difficult but possible.

According to many people and some travel publications it is the most beautiful bay beach in the Mediterranean. It is by far the best of the Italian Beaches. If you arrive by sea be prepared to be surprised by the amazing scenery.

Out of nowhere you see suddenly the high calcareous rocks and the green valley. There are 6 “grottoni” or large caves in the rock that open to the beach.

Spiaggia della Pelosa

It has been nominated as one of Sardinia’s best beaches. It is located on the northwest coast of the island about one hour drive from the city of Alghero.

It is in the form of a crescent with white sands and crystal transparent blue waters. It is very popular during summers. The tiny port of Stintino nearby is a nice stop for lunch.
