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
