Club Esse Palmasera


Situated between the mountains and the sea

Between the mountains and the sea, the Palmasera enjoys all the beauties of Sardinia. Behind it has a ridge that is always green and perfumed by the Mediterranean scrub. In front of it is the sea, emerald green and cobalt blue: a diving paradise. The equipped beach is 200m away, the Central Beach and the Aquarium of Cala Gonone just a stroll away, and only 2.9km to the Bue Marino Caves. The Palmasera Resort consists of three different areas: the Hotel, the Village and the exclusive Borgo.
