The secret of the seal - Cala Gonone

Tottoi e "The Secret of the seal"

The book “Tottoi” was written by Gianni Padoan in 1980 and Nippon Animation made it a cartoon in 1990.

The story of Tottoi is set in Cala Gonone and Dorgali in 1970s, when the monk seal still lived in the grottoes.

The japanese cartoon reproduce accurately the landscape of the Gulf of Orosei, the traditions and the local food. It has been translated in English and Spanish and broadcasted worldwide. In the nineties it has been turned into a playstation game too. Unfortunately it has never been translated in italian. In 2013 the student of the Dorgali secondary school coordinated by their teacher Francesco Ticca have dubbed the cartoon in the local dialect of Dorgali. On youtube you can find the English version of the cartoon “The secret of the seal” .


The Cala Gonone weather, mitigated by the seaproximity, is characterized by mild winters and warm dry summers.

As a result, also because of the shape of the area, it lends itself to various activities related to the sport, the main attraction that captures thousands of tourists each year, followed by crafts and local cuisine.

The characteristic wind of the area is the Mistral, which is manifested by irregular and variable winds gusts, conditioned by the gorges of the mountains in which is channeled and then reflected from the south-east.
