Cala Goloritze'A window on the coves of the Gulf of Orosei
One of the most suggestive beaches of Sardinia, born from a landslide in 1962, is famous for its 143 meter high pinnacle that overlooks the creek, also known to climbers for its climbing routes; the most famous is the Symphony of the Windmills, opened by Manolo and Alessandro Gogna in the late seventies. Another characteristic element of the beach is the natural arch that opens on the right side of the bay. In a ravine among the rocks inside the beach there is also a spring of fresh water that flows into the sea from the subsoil. The beach is composed of small white pebbles and sand. Goloritzé can be reached by sea, or by a path that goes from the Golgo plateau to the cove, with a vertical drop of 470 meters and about an hour and a half walk. Currently (since the summer of 2007) the coast near the beach (200 m from the shore) is completely closed to the traffic of motor boats to preserve the beach from pollution and the assault of tourists. Cala Goloritzè was declared a "Natural Monument" of the Sardinia Region in 1993, and later named "Italian National Monument" in 1995.
