The archaeological area sprawls across basalt hill overlooking the gulf of Orosei. Its main feature is the single-tower nuraghe, about 12 m tall and made of basalt and volcanic rock. The entrance is surmounted by a lintel and leads into the central chamber, almost completely obstructed by the collapsed structure. In the outer wall open four niches, presumably guard shelters originally accessible from a corridor with stairs later incorporated into the wall. Around the nuraghe sprawls a stone hut village encircled by a defence wall made of large stone blocks and natural boulders.
Leave Dorgali and take SS 125 'Orientale Sarda' heading south. When you reach the tunnel, turn left towards Cala Gonone. After about 4 km after the turnoff, take a dirt road on the right that leads to the archaeological site.
