San Teodoro has reinvented itself. Once a simple fishing village a half hour’s drive south of Olbia, it is now a popular resort town. This is mainly attributable to the nearby beaches, particularly three kilometre-long La Cinta with its superlative white sand. Also contributing to San Teodoro’s popularity are the almost unreal clarity of the water and the play of turquoise tints upon it, as well as the numerous worthwhile sights and excursions in close proximity to the village. The panorama is also greatly enhanced by the islands visible from shore, the largest and highest being Isola Tavolara who''s weird and wonderful granite formations are a joy to behold. Behind the dunes lie Stagno di San Teodoro, a marshland area with a lake that is the habitat for many species of wildlife.
Visitors have a wide range of activities to choose from: For active vacationers, surf boards and sailboats are for rent. There is also a scuba diving centre, a riding stable, a bicycle rental place, as well as tennis courts and a golf course. The sidewalks are not rolled up at night in San Teodoro, which is well supplied with restaurants, bars and discos. Before dinner, we recommend an appetizer in Ambra Day, which offers a beautiful ambiance with its tasteful interior, very good drinks and a rich buffet. During high season live music is offered. Afterwards, the evening can be finished at Ripping, Ambra Night (great night club for teenagers in Cala D'Ambra) or at Luna (nice ambiance, very suitable for adults). A certainly very exclusive venue to have dinner or a drink is Bal Harbour. Another venue for the young and the young at heart is Budda del Mar and, in Agrustos, Smaila's. Fortunately, the hustle and bustle that characterizes San Teodoro today has left the village’s charm completely intact. You can easily withdraw from the hubbub by sitting under a palm tree on the Piazza Mediterraneo and enjoying some Sardinian ice cream. Nearby are some of the more typical mass tourism restaurants such as Li Scopi and Casteddu.
