Cala Luna

Cala Luna is a stunning beach located on an island. The beach is known for its natural beauty and is considered one of the most beautiful spots on the island. However, it can get quite crowded, especially during the high season in August, with large groups of people arriving and departing by ferry every 15 minutes. The beach features interesting but not deep grottos and is a habitat for a variety of birds. Despite its beauty, the underwater scenery when snorkelling is quite plain, consisting mainly of sand and rounded rocks. Getting to Cala Luna can be a bit of a challenge. The most convenient way is by boat, with ferries departing from Cala Gonnone and stopping at multiple beaches along the way. Alternatively, visitors can choose to hike to the beach, a trek that takes about two hours each way. Visiting in June is recommended as the crowds are more manageable during this time. For those seeking a quieter experience and a chance to capture stunning photos, it's best to be there after all the boats have returned, around 17:30. This allows visitors to enjoy the beach almost to themselves and witness a spectacular sunset on the hike back.
