North of the town of Cala Gonone, a short distance from the port, the limestone cliff typical of the gulf of Orosei is interspersed with basaltic rock of volcanic origin. This particular area is called "S'abba durche" (Sweet Water) due to the presence of a large aquifer that flows from the wall into the sea.
There is a water pumping cabin, which is put into operation in times of drought, from which the young people of Dorgali perform their "initiation" to reckless diving. Close by, a small beach of medium-sized dark pebbles.
Continuing along the coast to the north there are no other beaches until Cala Cartoe. Despite this, it is possible to take characteristic baths in some areas with low limestone rock that juts out into the sea.
The marine flora in this stretch of coast is particularly luxuriant, due to the absence of boat traffic. For this reason, the entire cliff that can be traveled on foot is a popular destination for climbers and those seeking silence and intimacy.
