Cala Luna beach
The second reason to visit our territory is the famous Cala Luna beach. The shoreline has a river origin and every year you will find it a little different thanks to the winter storms and the material brought back by the Ilune stream, the river that flows behind Cala Luna, which, by retreating in spring, cleans and regenerates the beach. On the north side of the beach there are 5 caves that can be accessed on foot. These are a destination for climbing enthusiasts or a refuge for those looking for some shade during the hottest hours of the day. In the southern part is located the promontory of “Su Masongiu” at whose base there is a pier for mooring boats.
The bottom of Cala Luna is a mixture of sand and pebbles and slopes gently in the southern half while in the northern half it is moderately sloping. The deep Codula di Ilune (the canyon that ends near the beach) is a naturalistic destination of intense beauty due to the presence of lush vegetation on the overhanging walls of the canyon where numerous caves are located. The beach can be reached on foot starting from Cala Fuili in two hours and from “Buchiarta” sheepfolds in one hour of walking.
