Club Esse Palmasera


Situated between the mountains and the sea, the Club Esse Palmasera has all the Sardinian geography beauty. Behind it, there is an evergreen ridge from which the myrtle, the helichrysum and the lentisk make the Mediterranean scrub scents explode. In front of it, there is the sea, emerald green and blue, full of marine life: a paradise for diving. The hotel’s equipped beach is just 200m away, while to reach the Cala Gonone Central Beach or the Aquarium is just a short walk, and only 2.9km to reach the famous Bue Marino Caves.

The resort Club Esse Palmasera is located in the Cala Gonone area of Dorgali, in Sardinia

Continuing the walk you arrive at the Central Beach of Cala Gonone, but remember that Cala Goloritze and Cala Mariolu are also nearby.


The indomitable beauty of Barbagia

On this coast the mountain looks solemn towards the Tyrrhenian Sea. Under these hills the beaches seem to be the gentle and soft palm of a friendly giant that stretches towards the sea. The water is turquoise, the sand is white: Cala Goloritzé, Cala Mariolu, Cala Sisine, Cala Luna. But don’t stop at the beaches! The Bue Marino Coves, the Gola su Gorropu and Tiscali Mount will amaze you.
