Cala Dragunara 

General Data


Dock Services


Situated in the south-western part of the gulf of Porto Conte, along the so-called Riviera del Corallo in the territory of Alghero and in the province of Sassari, Cala Dragunara is famous because its small port is the starting point to reach the popular Neptune's grottos.

The whole area is rich of underwater grottos, always crowded with scuba divers and snorkeling enthusiasts coming from all around the world. Many diving centres organize boat trips in the whole gulf. Consequently, it is not hard to image how difficult is to find a peaceful place where to stay at anchor in summer. Cala Dragunara is quite small and characterized by a 10-metre seabed made of sand and seaweeds.

The small beach is equipped with a dock generally used by tourist boats for boarding and disembarkation maneuvers, an access for disabled people, toilets, rest stops, a car park and bathing establishments.

Easily reachable through a narrow path, the beach is very crowded with tourists in summer. Overlooked by the promontory of Capo Caccia and a beautiful lighthouse, the beach is nestled into a small cove covered with golden sand and little pebbles. The sea is simpy wonderful, with nuances ranging from blue to emerald.

The Dragunara's Grotto is a very interesting location from a geological point of view. It has a 40-metre-deep inner side where fresch water becomes salty when reaching the surface.

At the top of the promontory, the weather station of Capo Caccia is an important reference point for the Italian air force in the area around the city of Alghero. The mountain offers breath-taking views of the gulf.
