A seaside little town rich with charm, night life, history and traditions, Budoni, a Gallura commune in the border with Baronìa, could not but boast among its pearls a string of dreamlike beaches. Cala di Budoni is, without a doubt, a shining example. About four kilometres long, it goes from Li Cucutti to Porto Ainu, and overlooks a crystalline, shallow sea, perfect for children, with fine and light sand. Along its long and sinuous extension, the coast of Cala di Budoni changes name a few times: Li Salineddi, Salamaghe, Lido del Sole and sa Capannizza.
The beach offers plenty of comforts and services: it is accessible to disabled people and has plenty of parking space. The whole area has many hotels and camping sites, as well as cafés and restaurants. You can also rent beach equipment. The cala is loved by windsurfers, scuba divers and snorkelers.
Nearby, the natural habitat is very varied. The Mediterranean scrub, growing in the midst of the sand, follows the shore and enriches it with green hues. This spectacular scenario also has small dunes, ponds and pine groves, the home of many different species of birds. In the Budoni territory, you will also get to know other pearls of these shores: Li Cucutti, “hills” in Gallura dialect, like those covered in lush green pine groves around the wide beach that meets the turquoise sea; the beautiful yet never crowded beach of Baia Sant’Anna, made of thick golden sand and lapped by crystalline green seawater that becomes deep after only a few steps away from the shore, and cala Ottiolu, near the small Porto Ottiolu neighbourhood, a fantastic beach of white sand that enters the crystalline sea, much beloved and very popular.
