Cala Gonone oggi è una frazione del comune di Dorgali in provincia di Nuoro (Sardegna), da cui dista 9 Chilometri. Località abitata già in epoca nuragica, poi romana ed infine bizantina (X secolo). Infatti sulla costa due chilometri più a Sud di Gonone era ubicata fino al primo millennio d.C. la realtà urbana portuale (Sulcalis) più importante dal punto di vista demografico ed economico del territorio dorgalese e del Golfo di Orosei. Il litorale di Gonone dopo lo spopolamento dell'anno mille fu utilizzato come approdo in periodo medioevale. Il centro attuale nasce con la costruzione della Chiesa nel 1878. Poi il villaggio fu interessato dal popolamento di una colonia di pescatori ponzesi all'inizio del XX secolo e si sviluppa soprattutto nella seconda metà del Novecento come importante centro turistico e balneare. I locali chiamano questo paese semplicemente Gonone.

In questo comprensorio si può trovare insieme un mare di smeraldo, foreste fitte ed incontaminate che ricoprono solenni montagne e lande silenziose sulle quali vegliano i nuraghi, misteriose architetture della storia di questa terra. Cala Gonone domina una costa fra le più belle e suggestive del Mediterraneo, sicuramente la più lunga senza insediamenti umani, conservatasi intatta forse perché accessibile solo dal mare

Una bella spiaggia con acqua cristallina, un ambiente tranquillo adatto agli adulti e ai bambini. Il mare che tutti sognano per le vacanze.
