Coasteering Cala Gonone
JOIN OUR COASTEERING TOURS TO EXPLORE THE MOST FASCINATING FEATURES OF THE ROCKY COASTLINE
The Coasteering of Cala Gonone is an exciting adventure on the rocky coastline, including passages through natural caves, tunnels and lots of jumps into deep water. This route develops along the massive cliffs between Cala Gonone and Orosei, between immense boulders and crystal-clear water, mixing walking and swimming. Be ready to explore the most thrilling features of the coast. We will crawl through secret tunnels, scramble over the boulders and jump into the deep sea to overcome the most challenging passages. The Coasteering of Cala Gonone is suitable for beginners and families too. We often guide groups with active children who have a great time at exploring and swimming. It is fundamental to ve able to swim.
Forget laying on the beach, come to Coasteering, and turn your holiday into a real adventure!
From our meeting point, we will take a short boat ride to reach the start point of the Coasteering tour. From the Grotta dei Colombi, we will walk along the rocky coast among caves, enormous boulders, sneaky passages, and many jumps into the Sardinian crystal-clear sea.
Massive rocks stacked along with the coastline range vastly in dimensions, offering countless options for jumping. While many love diving into the sea and enjoy the highest jump at over 8 meters of height, those who do not feel confident do not have to jump at all, simply walking down to the water.
We will end our Coasteering route at Grotta di Biddiriscottai (aka Millennium), where we will have a little break and get ready for the way back. There are some rocks where it is possible to lay down and an interesting seafloor to explore.
From the end of the Coasteering to the Port of Orosei, it takes about 15 minutes on a dinghy boat.
