Cala Mariolu opens out onto the Golfo di Orosei in Sardinia, in the locality of Punta Ispuligi. The name is connected with the monk seal, nicknamed by the fishermen "mariolu" (thief) because it took fish out of their nets.
IDYLLIC ITALIA L'azzaro di Cala Mariolu (Blue Mariolu) is one of the best secluded beaches of the eastern coast of Sardinia. You can reach it only by boat, from Arbatax or Cala Gonone. The color of the sea speaks for itself. // photo by Sergio Canobbio
