Cala Mariolu beach, Baunei, Italy
Between the flat rock that marks “Cala dei Gabbiani” and the sheer cliff that closes the “Ispuligidenie forest” in the north, it spreads one of today’s most famous beaches and the most popular of the Baunei coast. This beach, about 300 meters long, divided into two parts by a big rock used as a dock by boats carrying tourists, is now known by the double name of “Ispuligidenie – Cala Mariolu”. The two names are explained by the particular history of this stretch of coast, and in a sense admirably summarize a past in which intertwine the stories of shepherds with those of the fishermen.
