San Teodoro, Sardinia: a Tropical Paradise
San Teodoro is one of Sardinia’s top holiday destinations for its beautiful beaches and the spectacular colours of its waters. San Teodoro (Sardinia) is a tourist city with the classical Mediterranean spirit: it’s a place with charming sandy beaches of fine quartz and a vibrant seaside town for its nightlife.
The coastline here is home to a variety of stunning beaches: Cala Ginepro, with its air fragrant of the aromas of the native Mediterranean brush, Coda Cavallo beach, which will amaze you with views of the grand Tavolara and its protected marine area, Cala Ghjlgolu, where the wind and the sea moulded a boulder into the shape of a turtle, an attraction very popular with visitors, especially children.
My favourite beach and the symbol of San Teodoro (Sardinia) is La Cinta: a 5-km arch of dunes of fine white sand that gently fade into a clear azure sea, scented with juniper.
Its bottom is shallow and clear: this beach is perfect for families with children and nature lovers. It’s a wonderful place for a nice walk and a spot of bird watching.
Indeed, here you can also admire pink flamingos from up close! You will be amazed: countless of these birds inhabit the salty waters near the dunes. The beach has all necessary amenities: parking area, beach bar, beach equipment rental, canoe and paddleboat rental, excursions by dinghy boat, fishing excursions, water sports, sailing and kite surf lessons.
San Teodoro(Sardinia) is also famous for its nightlife, one of the best in Sardinia.
How about an aperitif while the sun sets or perhaps dinner in an elegant, poolside restaurant? San Teodoro (Sardinia) certainly has a lot to offer – hip clubs like Ambra Night, Ripping and Buddha del Mar promise to keep the typical Sardinian energy alive all through the night.
If you love hiking: Monte Nieddu reaches 970 meters and is the highest mountain near San Teodoro. You can therefore hike in the mountains or mountain bike to explore the forests of holm oaks, junipers and yew that cover the sides of the mountain.
Don’t miss: One the island’s oldest festivals, in honour of Saint Anthony, is celebrated on 16-17 January in numerous towns of Sardinia, with the lighting of fires to mark the start of Carnival in Sardinia.
The bonfires of Sant’Antonio Abate during the Lu Fuculoni festival are especially spectacular, when the faithful gather around the raging flames in honour of their saint.
