MOTOR SHIP DON VINCENZO

WHAT WILL YOU DO :

The Don Vincenzo is a comfortable motorboat that departs daily and at all hours from the port of Cala Gonone for a beautiful and inexpensive excursion to Cala Luna and the Grotte del Bue Marino (optional visit), two of the most beautiful pearls of the Gulf of Orosei. You can choose to stay in Cala Luna for the whole day, returning to Cala Gonone every hour, or leave around 12.30 p.m. to continue with the mini-cruise to discover the most beautiful beaches of the Gulf.

The Grotta del Bue Marino (Sea Ox Cave) is part of a karst system that extends for over 70 km inland; its name derives from the name that shepherds used to call the monk seal, "Su Oe 'e Mare", who used the cave to wean their pups. The cave is divided into two branches, north and south, where the encounter of fresh water with sea water is clearly visible and the resurgences create spectacular reflections, even near the mouths. The southern branch of the cave can be visited in the company of expert guides who will take you along a path of about 800 metres, artificially lit and crossed by a wide wooden footbridge.

Cala Luna is one of Sardinia's best-known beaches. In the 1970s it was chosen as the main set for the famous film written and directed by Lina Wertmüller, 'Travolti da un insolito destino nell'azzurro mare d'agosto'. The beach has a mixed seabed of sand and pebbles and 5 caves within walking distance, often visited by climbers or those seeking shade during the hot hours of the day. The beach can be reached on foot starting from Cala Fuili, the last beach of Cala Gonone that can be reached by car: trekking lovers can take advantage of the Taxi service, walking along the path and returning by boat after spending the whole day on the beach.

TRIP DETAILS

DEPARTURES FROM CALA GONONE : 9:00 - 10:00 - 11:00 - 12:00
RETURN : 17:30


Leaving Cala Luna we will head for Cala Mariolu, the pearl of the Gulf of Orosei, where our guests can enjoy a two-hour stopover.
During the trip, our crew will offer our guests a fresh aperitif, included in the price, to brighten your stay on board.

Before the stop on the beach, you will be able to use the beach umbrella, which is included in the ticket price. An audio guide, in four languages, will explain in detail the wonders of the Gulf of Orosei that you will see during the navigation.
The beach, made up of small white pebbles, is a natural aquarium where you can dive in and enjoy a unique experience. In some places the freshwater springs from the heart of the marine Supramonte meet the sea water, lowering the temperature considerably and forming the turquoise colours typical of the waters of the gulf.

The next stop will be Cala Gabbiani, divided from Cala Mariolu by the promontory of Punta Ispuligi. The white seabed is made up of a limestone grit constantly worked by the sea, and the turquoise colour of the water is also due to the karstic resurgence of fresh water that flows into the sea, a frequent feature of this stretch of coastline.
We then reach Cala Goloritzè, a beach with a unique setting due to the imposing Aguglia and the natural arch of the same name. This little corner of paradise is a Unesco World Heritage site, so it can only be reached on foot or by approaching the arch by sea.

During navigation we will make short stops in front of the Grotta dei Cormorani and Cala Biriola, to give you time to admire and photograph the beauty of our coastline. On request, the boat can also be booked exclusively for mini-cruises for groups along the Gulf of Orosei, to visit the most beautiful bays of the Selvaggio Blu such as Cala Sisine, Cala Biriola, Le Piscine di Venere, Cala Mariolu, Cala dei Gabbiani and Cala Goloritzè.
