“A beautiful hike will get you to one of the most beautiful bays of the Gulf. You can jump in the crystal clear water and do some snorkeling and enjoy swimming all the way to the fantastic arch. If you like climbing you'd probably like the Aguglia di Goloritzè !”

Sublocality
“Santa Maria Navarrese, is part of the town council of Baunei, it is situated on the east coast of Sardinia. The port and airport of Arbatax are only a 10 minute drive away. Marvelous green trees form the principal characteristics of this town. Olive trees, hundreds and even thousands of years old, adorn and tinge the town square and slopes which rise up from the sea and are interrupted only by the white stones of the antique church. This church was built in 1050 by the Princess of Navarra (hence the name of the town). The impressive grey Spanish Tower guards the bay with its sandy beaches. The town offers all kinds of amenities that tourists require. The modern Tourist Port of Baunei and Santa Maria Navarrese, inaugurated in 1998, is a welcoming and safe harbour on the east coast of Sardinia which can accommodate up to 340 vessels of up to 30m in length. Each year the port has attracted more visitors thanks to both the quality of its services and the magical setting in which its located, a little bay with its view of Santa Maria Navarrese's Saracen tower and its beach.”

If you go there you can enjoy a spectacular sunset drinking a prosecco and tasting oysters or sushi laying down in comfortable white sofas in the garden.. it's so relaxing! There is also the restaurant but I recommend you to reserve a table..it is quite busy”
