Cala Goloritze is a very famous beach on the Italian Island of Sardinia. It is famous for being beautiful, secluded and the 143 m high Aguglia de Goloritze right on the water. There are numerous other climbs from single pitch to longer more involved climbs, but the real treat and most peoples goal is one of the routes on the Aguglia.

Routes are east, north, and west facing and depending on season and time of day the beach can very secluded or extremely crowded. The limestone is fantastic, featured and can be sharp.

Getting There 

Best way to the island is either flying into Cagliari in the South or Olbia in the north and renting a car, if you already have a car ferries are available from Livorno and Civitavecchia on mainland Italy.

Once on the island of Sardinia folloe SS131 towards Nuoro and Siniscola exit at Lula. Take the SP 38 towards and past Dorgali. Continue of the beautiful SS125, named ”Orientale Sarda”, leading to the little town of Baunei. From Baunei, just before entering the village, turn to left following the road to the Church of San Pietro in Golgo (signpost Ristorante del Golgo); follow the road for about 10 km. Look for signs to Goloritze. Park at the end of the road at the equipped camping (“Su Porteddu”). Paying parking inside the camping area.

From here follow the path towards the beach. About 4 miles, hour and a half on the way down longer on the way out, 600-700 feet of elevation.

Sole Incantatore "Sun Charmer" 5.11a/b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c PG13  Europe : Italy : Cala Goloritze
A stunning route to the summit of the spire. Mostly less than vertical, with a few bulges the route is sustained and tricky to onsite. A good mix of crimps, tricky footwork and even a bit of lay backing, steep limestone slab baby! Pitches go at 5+, 6b+, 6c, 6b, 6c. First two pitches can be linked. Some of the crux moves can be aided but don't rely on it. Pitches 2, 3, and 4 had many different bolts and picking the right line to follow can be tricky....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
