Punta Caroddi is set in the beautiful context of the Goloritzè coast, the part of the gulf near Capo di Monte Santo, in the territory of Baunei. It is famous for the 128-meter-high pinnacle that overlooks the beach, also known to climbers for its sport climbing routes, the most famous of which is Sinfonia dei Mulini a Vento, a route opened by Manolo and Alessandro Gogna in the seventies. In 1997, the procedure for recognition as a UNESCO natural heritage site of Aguglia was initiated but was never completed. Although formally it is not, the entire Gulf of Orosei fully deserves to be a World Heritage Site.
In 1990, the Italian state defined Punta Caroddi as a natural national monument. Punta Caroddi can be visited via trekking from Baunei thanks to a medium-easy path with some excursion services on land that include a return to Cala Gonone by rubber dinghy or the wonderful heels can be admired during a sea excursion.
