San Teodoro is a popular tourist resort in the southern part of Costa Smeralda. Its La Cinta beach is Sardinia’s longest and widest and boasts the silkiest sand on the island. Behind the dunes lie Stagno di San Teodoro, a marshland area with a lake that is the habitat for many species of wildlife. La Cinta’s three-kilometre long stretch of sand between the lagoon and the sea offers what seems like an infinity of space. Sand everywhere you look and the best in the world. And the water: as clear as glass. You can see right to the bottom from far away, and the fine, glistening white sand makes the sea seem all the lighter in colour. The bay is a popular gathering place for teenagers and is much beloved by children for its flatness. Surfers can rent surfboards or sign up for a surfing course. And the bay offers some of the world’s best scuba diving. Although, during the high season, La Cinta is not ideally suited for visitors in search of peace, quiet and solitude, the beach is a perfect setting for solitary pursuits in the off season.
Turning in the direction of Capo Coda Cavallo, you will find the wonderful and famous beach of Lu Impostu - Brandinchi, from which you can see Isola di Tavolara and the surrounding water protection area. Turning to the south, on the other hand, you will also see lovely bays and beaches which guarantee tranquillity and lonesomeness. One example for a more southern beach is the beach of L'Isuledda.
