Cala Mariolu is one of the most beautiful beaches in Sardinia and is part of the Gulf of Orosei. It's located in the municipality of Baunei in the Ogliastra region which also boasts the amazing Cala Luna and Cala Goloritzè beaches. In Sardinian, the cove is known as "Ispuligi de Nie" ("snow beach") thanks to the pink and white pebbles found there. The first thing that you notice is the clarity of the waters, a phenomenon throughout this part of Sardinia. The palette of blues and emerald greens create an amazing seascape that just beckons you to go diving. The beach is accessible via a private boat or a ferry from the ports of Arbatax and Santa Maria Navarrese.
