From the clearing where the paved road ends, the splendid small bay of Cala Fuili can be seen in its splendor – a renowned seaside destination for the many climbers who choose Cala Gonone for their holidays. The hike begins by going down the steps leading to the banks of Codula Fuili – the canyon of the same name giving rise to the beach by cutting the plateau above. Just opposite the site where the path reaches it – and without going uphill or towards the beach – you will find under a lentisk a ceramic plate, signposting the start of the path to Cala Luna. You will take it, and start a steep climb on a track – sometimes adjusted with steps -, then on bare rock. Almost at the top of the climb you will find on your left the detour to the caves of the Bue Marino (northern branch). You will leave that behind, continuing uphill – always on a path wich is not signposted, but is generally easy to follow. The track makes some ups and downs, in which the secondary detours are always ignored (both upwards and downwards). You will make sure to follow the more travelled path. A more signposted track on the left, in particular, leads to the beautiful cove of Ziu Santoru. At about three quarters of the route, you will leave the comfortable mule tracks, descending on steep and slippery rocks near the Oddoana cave towards the valley of the same name below. Then climb again, immediately afterwards, on a mule track. At the top of the climb you will reach a basaltic area, marked by dark stones, from which you can enjoy a splendid view of the nearby Cala Luna. You can reach it downhill through small hairpin bends (ruined by the passages) through the shores of the canyon below, passing by the bar-restaurant Su Neulagi (open from May to October) and crossing the pond at the back of the beach. The return can be made by the same route or on a boat – just make sure you check the availability and seasonality of this service, fee required.
After heavy rains, the Codula di Luna (the long gorge behind Cala Luna) could flood, making it impossible to reach the beach. From October to May there is also no wooden pier which would allow to reach the sandy shores - crossing the pond behind the dunes - without getting wet.
Public bus service to Cala Gonone
From the village of Cala Gonone follow the Viale Bue Marino on a paved road along the sea for 3.5 km, until it ends above Cala Fuili. If you are travelling by car, you can park along the road or just before the final climb, in the wide open area next to the beach of Ziu Martine.
