Excursion to Cala Goloritzè
Necessary equipment*: trekking boots, water, snack for lunch, swimsuit
Departure by car from Ghenn’e Silana heading towards Baunei along the s.s 125 Orientale Sarda road, arriving in town centre we take a small road that goes to the upper plateau of the “Golgo” and to the area named “Su Porteddu”. Here there’s a large car park where walkers can leave their cars. Then we set off on foot along the footpath that twists and turns through Baccu Goloritzè.
It takes about an hour and a half to reach the beach, with a steep descent.
Cala Goloritzè is one of the most beautiful landscapes of the Orosei bay, recognisable for its picturesque natural stone arch on the edge of the sea and for the Aguglia, listed as a Natural Monument by UNESCO and a favourite with climbers.
One of the special things about it is the presence of underwater freshwater springs, testifying to deep karstic activity.
To get back we take the same path in reverse and takes walkers back to their cars on the upper plateau of the Golgo.
*Packed lunches available, and hire of trekking equipment such as boots, backpacks,
and Nordic walking poles.
