SURROUNDINGS AND WHAT TO SEE
San Teodoro is known for being a fun sea town, particularly appreciated by young people and with a remarkable amount of accommodation. But it has a lot to offer in its surroundings.
- San Teodoro pond, located behind Spiaggia della Cinta beach, is a reserve that is home to many amphibians and birds - a paradise for birdwatching. Local service companies organise boat trips, for complete relaxation.
- Tavolara Island, the long and blue spur that you see in front of it is Tavolara Island, which together with Molara forms a little archipelago. There are wrecks of sunken ships and fishing boats, and the area is a protected marine reserve, perfect for snorkelers. The island is reachable by raft and is a must-see.
- Posada. For those who can travel by car, it is a pretty village overlooking the delta of a torrent that bears the same name in one of the most fascinating areas of Sardinia. An ancient restored tower belonging to Castello della Fava fortress, of the Aragon period, can be visited and allows you to admire a breath-taking panorama of the coast.
boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in Sardinia:
La Cinta (perimeter) - as the name suggests, it forms a large sandstone perimeter. A white beach by definition, with a perfect sea bottom for families where children can play in a giant natural swimming pool. A recommended experience: the sunrise on the horizon.
Cala Brandinchi. Considered the little Tahiti of the Mediterranean, probably the most beautiful beach in North-East Sardinia, better than those on the Emerald Coast.
Isuledda - behind there is the pond, and it is surrounded by cliffs, reserved and very intimate, in the direction of Ottiolu.
