On the way to San Teodoro
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.
