To arrive at Cala Gonone exit at Km 69.300 at the crossroads Lula / Dorgali and take the slip road station (SS 131 DCN). Continue for 20 km towards Dorgali, until you reach the SS 125 and follow the remaining 10 km towards Cala Gonone.
Otherwise, if you prefer a more panoramic route for landscapes offered along the way, you can take the eastern road (SS 125) that crosses the East Coast of the island connecting Cagliari to Olbia.
NOTE:Coming from the north, once you have arrived at Dorgali, we suggest that you ignore the instruction of the navigator because usually they are set to calculate the shortest, but difficult path. Instead, follow the road signs that will lead you more easily to Cala Gonone through the tunnel on Mount “ Tului”, once you have passed the exit of Dorgali.
