The beach is unique for its caves and the scenery in general. Even crowded is an unmissable spot. Turquoise crystal clear waters.

Stunning beach - small stony sand - with crystal clear water. Caves, a valley with some wandering cows at one end and huge rocks to get some shade. This was April so very uncrowded. Either a very long hike or a boat from cala gonone to get there.

I mean, for the beautiful scenery pictures speak thousand words.

I just cannot fathom how is it possible that one of the two only beaches with services on a route were thousand of people pass by each day can have such horrible toilets. You either can go there or to cala sisine. It should not be rocket science to have paid toilets there with someone monitoring and cleaning up once in a while. I will spare you the graphic details, but the only working toilet was a humiliating experience.

Anyway, 4 stars as it would be unfair to ruin the rating because of the services, but they should seriously consider offering a decent service for a fee rather than a free toilet nightmare.

To preface: I do not like rocky beaches. I do not like crowded beaches. I do not like odd stenches. This beach marked off all three… immediately red flags….

Alas, here is my absolute humble opinion on Cala Luna Beach in Sardinia:

To start off, this beach is very rocky. The sand
was burning my feet as if it came directly from the
pits of hell. The rocks are slimy and sharp to walk
on, SO BRING WATERSHOES... While i was trying to
enjoy the water, i had various crabs or fish trying to
chomp down on my feet. There are nice caves to
see, except i saw very used toilet paper behind the rocks… i’m not even joking which is the scary part…. It would make sense though since there aren’t any bathrooms nearby, unless you plan on taking the ferry back or hiking 3 hours back to society.

Next, the bathing suits are quite uncontrolled here, from seeing naked people to naked babies, it wasn't what i wanted to see, and i don't care if it's "the european way", they need to take a lesson on class. As i tried to eat some snacks and relax, i turned my head slightly to the right to catch a glimpse of the ocean, when all of a sudden i was startled by a man’s very tight speedo. I get why this bothered me, I am an American- and it’s not accepted to go nude… or close to it in public places there.

The water is probably polluted here from all of the
boats. It does have water if you walk far down the beach. If i came again i wouldn't sit in the caves- it smelt like prosciutto.

Avoid at all costs.

The scenery was pretty but i don’t personally think it was worth the stench of the nearby people.

The water is clear but rocky-bring some shoes. Also the boats leave every three hours… When came time to leave the beach, the boat back to the origin had a limited number of people to fit. Everyone was packed like sardines to give the poor man their tickets. I witnessed a big man slap someone’s hand out of the way so he and his wife could fit on the boat.

Although i have enjoyed my weeks long vacation here in Sardinia, i was utterly disappointed and saddened to have this beach be my last day here. I had to starve my churning stomach for lunch, i felt light headed in the heat… i just wanted a clean, non crowded, sandy, blue watered beach. I’m not a picky person, i just wanted the bare minimum.

I would give this beach a 3.5 if i could, however i think it is best to round to a 3 star for humbling purposes. Venture here if you please, but you were warned.

Let’s start from some facts: about 2 hours to go there on feet with no rush and some photo breaks. About 5,5 km from the end of a road to Cala Fuili. Most of route is not difficult, but especially on the final segment there are some rocks with which you should help yourselves with hands. Recommend some trek shoes or at least sneakers with no slippery soles. It’s definitely worth to do and see spectacular views both during a trek and being on a beach. There is also nice bar/restaurant close to the beach where you can eat or drink. Toilets as well.

I would be absolutely amazed with Cala Luna if I hadnt seen the other beaches in the Golfo. The beach is beautiful (really !!!) but also most crowded. Therefore I'd prioritize the other less crowded beaches but it is really a nice one also.

We did a boat trip along the coast line which included a visit to Cala Luna. It is such a unique stunning beach and the caves are so cool. The water was also cystal clear and beautiful. It was great in the afternoon because all though the sun sets on the otherside of the cliffs, there was still sunlight.

Visited this beach after reading some many nice reviews on TA. It is a lovely beach but getting there is not as easy as some put it.
We're a 32 yo couple who enjoyed hikig every now and then and we did struggle in some parts, especially because some areas are really narrow, the rocks are sharp and there isn't anywhere to hold onto,other than a few branches and more rocks.
We hoped we could get a boat back but there was no boats(maybe due to being the end of September). It took us around 2.5h hours to get there and more or less the same to go back. We did take a wrong turn kn the way back but we realised soon enough!
There's no real signage so look out for small marks of paint along the way. We did come across a few people so that's helpful.
Once on the beach the bar was closed but luckily it wasn't too busy either. Spent just under 2 hours there because wanted to leave on time. It can get rrally windy so beware of sandstorm ruining your lunch as it happened to us 😂
Overall nice experience and would recommend only if:
- you wear appropriate boots/trainers(I wore my nike trainers amd was fine)
- take water (a big bottle per person) and food/snacks
-start earlyish so you don't have to rush to get back
- Are slightly fit and used to go on long walks, hikes etc

One of the best beaches in Sardinia!
Emerald water, white sand, wild bush, and huge caves.
The beach can only be reached, by boat, from the Cala Gonone harbour (20 minutes, 20 Euros two ways ticket) or, if you're enough brave, by a long walk (approximately 3 hours)
The big caves are good, to have a fresh rest on the hottest hours of the day.
Behind the beach there's a small restaurant, with a large covered terrace, and some tables outside the facility.
Usually the place is very busy on August.
I absolutely recommend to visit.
Must see!!!
