This wonder is worthy of a film and, in fact, appears on the set of ‘Swept Away’ (1974) with Mariangela Melato and Giancarlo Giannini. It is the last cove that can be reached by car or by bike from the renowned tourist location of Cala Gonone, because the road ends at the point in which a descent towards the beach begins. The small, unspoilt, panoramic Cala Fuili, in the territory of Dorgali, not far from the Grotte del Bue Marino, will amaze you with its shallow, incredibly transparent waters and sea with colours ranging from green to turquoise.
Once you have gone down the steps carved out of the rock and crossed a dense wood of shrubs of Mediterranean scrub, the beach, with its white sand mixed with pebbles and rocks emerging from the sea, appears before you.
Your walk will be rewarded by the scenery: the contrast between the green vegetation and the blue sea contributes to the fairy-tale setting of this little cove, along with the rock faces that attract numerous climbing enthusiasts every year. It is very popular with trekking and canyoning lovers –it can also be reached via the evocative internal trail of Codula Fuili - as well as with diving and snorkelling enthusiasts.
Further south, along the Gulf of Orosei, you will find other havens with unspoilt nature and crystal clear waters: Cala Luna and, in the territory of Baunei, Cala Biriola, Cala Sisine, Cala Mariolu and Cala Goloritzè, which will offer you landscapes that warm the heart.
If you are interested in the civilizations of the past, in this area you will be able to go on a journey back in time and visit nuraghi, menhir, dolmen and domus de Janas, or you can delve into the evocative atmosphere of the Nuragic villageof Tiscali. You can also visit the Grotta di Ispinigoli, featuring a 38-metre stalagmitic column, the highest in Europe.
