Cala Luna

Is there anyone who hasn't dreamt of visiting the wonderful beaches that we see sometimes in films at the cinema or on television and where fantastic landscapes are portrayed? I believe almost everyone! Cala Luna, as other beaches of Sardinia, has been the stage of a film shot in 1974 by Lina Wertmuller and interpreted by Mariangela Melato and Giancarlo Giannini, under the title of "Overwhelmed by an unusual destiny in August's blue sea."

For those who haven't seen it yet, the comedy shows the still uncontaminated landscapes of the cove. Wild nature and Crystal Sea became the background of a film. The plot was about a rich Milanese woman and a Sicilian sailor who are shipwrecked on a desert Island in the Mediterranean Sea. The Island is Sardinia and the beach is Cala Luna.

The remake with Madonna took place in the following years. Cala Luna is without doubt one of the most wonderful, famous and fascinating coves, along the gulf of Orosei and in the Mediterranean in general. Tourists from all parts of the world, come to visit it every year attracted by: wild nature; blue water with crystal reflections; calcareous rocks that dominate the cove; Mediterranean maquis; the caves and the distinctive lake behind the beach which is a nice option with the sea and adds even more value to the cove.

The beach is characterized by thick sand mixed to white stones. The extension of the beach for about 800 meters, the pound in the back that closes the beach and colored oleanders that surround the area, make this landscape one of the most envied in the world. The cove can be reached by foot through a long but not particularly difficult path that starts from Baunei and ends in the renowned beach after a 3 hour walk. Along the path you can admire nature's effort to create these fantastic places.

We suggest relying on expert guides in order to avoid getting lost and also in order to receive an answer to all questions regarding the names and history of the places that you'll go through. All efforts spent during the walk, will be repaid once you reach the beach. The cove can be reached also by sea and in fact, easy docking, is the reason why nearly 80% of people prefer taking boats from the near ports of Santa Maria Navarrese, Arbatax and Cala Gonone and enjoy sightseeing during the voyage. Once you reach the beach, enjoy an unforgettable day and feel like a protagonist just like in a film.
