Kal’e Moru…a beautiful bay for you to discover:
Kal’e Moru beach is about 600 meters from the hotel and is easily accessible on foot. 3 Km of public beach with white sand and crystal clear waters.

The bay is an excellent surfing spot. Ideal for kite surfing and wave surfing. As for kite surfing, this is quite a challenging spot, of medium difficulty, with three different winds, the Libeccio, Mistral and Ponente.
Mari Pintau… the painted sea:
Mari Pintau means ‘painted sea’, and the waters of this small beach offer a truly spectacular hue of colors, thanks to the crystal clear waters encased in the Mediterranean maquis.
The water is emerald green and it reflects the granite cobble stones that form the small inlet sheltered by junipers, mastic and strawberry trees typical of the Sardinian maquis.
The sea here is quite shallow and the bottom is covered in fantastic thin sand.
On the right side, there is a popular spot for gays, LGBT and nudists. The beach is equipped with a kiosk-bar and a small restaurant, and you can rent beach umbrellas and loungers. Perfect for families with children. The beach can be reached by car in 3 minutes, or 15 minutes on foot.
The Villasimius Marine Park:
Only 20 Km away you can find the town of Villasimius, with its white beaches and Marine Park. Crystal clear waters and fascinating landscapes: these are the characteristics of the Capo Carbonara Marine Protected Area, in Villasimius.
A strip of land that stretches from Villasimius all the way to the sea, and includes Capo Boi and Punta Porceddus, the coastline in front of the Serpentara Island and Cavoli Island.
Created in 1998, the Protected Marine Area features granite rocks, green pine forests and a thick Mediterranean maquis. Here is one of Sardinia’s most fascinating natural attraction: Notteri Pond, separated from the sea by a thin stretch of land, natural habitat of flamingos, seagulls, manx shearwaters and gray partridges.
The beaches around the Capo Carbonara promontory feature very bright sand: this is due to the quartz crystals, which can be found also in the coves between Capo Boi and Campu Longu.
The sea bottom is rich in greater amberjack, tuna and barracudas: this tropical specie has chosen to settle in these Southern waters. Around Serpentara you can find dolphins, while in the waters of the Secca di Santa Caterina, 10 meters below the surface, is the statue of the Madonna del Naufragio, by the Sardinian sculptor Pinuccio Sciola.
The Il Monastero Hotel organizes boat tours of the Protected Marine area, or in the beaches along the coast, starting from Kala e Moru beach, just outside the Hotel.
