By the time you get to Santa Maria Navarrese, you will have been enchanted by the romantic streets near the coast bordered by turquoise water, with benches that invite contemplation and white sails silhouetted out in the sea.
The church of Santa Maria of Navarra, dating from the eleventh century, and the Spanish tower, built in the seventeenth century to guard the coast, represent the historical memory of the town. Under the shade of pine trees and dominated by the tower, the terrace overlooking the gulf offers a view of the marina to be enchanted by. The legend attributes the name of the ancient church to the princess of Navarra who ordered its construction to express her gratitude to the Virgin Mary.
As for the most beautiful places in the vicinity, we recommend Cala Sisine Beach, the pearl of the Gulf of Orosei, with large grains of sand and two imposing rocky outcrops on either side, and also the shallow waters of Cala Mariolu, Cala Follo, Cala Goloritzè, with turquoise waters and super white sand, and Cala Luna, considered to be one of the most beautiful Mediterranean beaches.
The Mediterranean brush, gathered in a thick wood of oak, juniper and pine tree, looks over the cliffs to the bold brushstrokes of the sea. Mouflons, Eleonora's falcons, golden eagles and seagulls chose this place that is still wild and rugged to breed.
Nearby is the incomparable beauty of the wild Baunei landscape: limestone ramparts rising steeply from the sea, sea expanses of indescribable splendor and waters as green as fresh sprouts and as blue as the sky make of this resort a must see destination.
