Somebody commented, that Cala Gonone has only pebbly beaches. Well here is something for those with gentle feet and bottoms, who particularly enjoys feeling of sand in the their eyes, hair and bikini bottoms. My selection of the sandy beaches around Cala Gonone and Orosei.

I personally would not call them sandy beaches, as the sand is pretty rough but as official classification for sand (oh yes, there is one for sand as well), you can call it sand if the particles are in the size of  0.0625 mm to 2 mm, then I just can’t argue with science.

Just 30 minutes away from Cala Gonone you can get the longest, quietest and in my opinion nicest  sandy beaches in the area. Orosei beaches. First stop is place we were 4 years ago, and it was the same – the steep shore of the sandy beach, waves to get some afternoon fun and some great pizza on the beach.

If you take the road parallel to the beach for next couple of kilometers and stop at any point, you will get to endless  sandy beach with or without the beach bar on the back. But if you are ready for some proper wild staff  drive further to the Su Barone beach, which is in a nature reservoir. You have to pay 5 Eur to enter (and park the car), but it’s a magic white sand beach backed with a pine wood and view to the closest mountains, there are almost no people. Small trailer gathers locals for a beer, and some sandwiches. And you don’t really need much more to get your batteries refilled.

Cala Ganone city beach

Absolutely amazing pinky beach, in the heart of the city, you literally walk out side from your apartment and you are on the beach. Zero effort, 100% comfort – you need anything… shops, bars, cash machine (the only one in the town!!) restaurants, you name it, it’s there!

Palmasera & Sos Doralles beach

On the other side of the town is sandy Palmassera beach, which normally is exclusive to holiday village guests , and you won’t be able to get an umbrella and chairs even if you want to pay for them. But if you have some basic trading skills, you might be able to exchange umbrella and chairs for two cold beers (which we thoughtfully had in our cool box). If you want to get away from the “all-inclusive” thing, walk as far as you can from the entrance on the beach and you will get on Sos Doralles, peaceful orange beach with clean blue waters. There is a paid parking at the entrance of the beach (4 Eur a day).

Cala Cartoe

Only if you are crazy desperate and can’t go anywhere else come to this dirty strip of sandy beach, with the water in the color of the pee. Plus, it’s a crazy narrow road to actually get there. On the positive side, there is free parking and a trailer with fresh goodies available at any time.
