CAPO CODA CAVALLO

“Get there by driving north up highway 125 towards San Teodoro – Olbia, then turn right at the fork in the road at Lutturai. Skillfully carved by the Ostro and the Scirocco, this extreme offshoot of land stretches towards the Tyrrhenian Sea and overlooks the islands of Proratora, Molara and Tavolara. The beach of Capo Coda Cavallo as well as the beautiful scenery offered by the profile of the islands, boasts clear water and fine sand immersed in Mediterranean bushes. A few minutes’ walk leads to the vantage point overlooking the whole expanse of water bordered by the Protected Marine Area of Tavolara – Punta Coda Cavallo. That same vantage point is home to well-preserved military structures dating back to World War II, strategically important for the sighting of the Allied air forces using equipment such as the famous aerophone (a rudimentary radar-based amplification of the sounds produced by aircraft engines).” – San Teodoro Tourism Office

These are some photos I took from inside the car as we were driving from Olbia.

This is our village – Porto Coda Cavallo. It has a piazzetta with a bar, boutique, pharmacy, market, salons, and a diving center.

We drive straight when we are going home but on this day, we passed by because we were going to Punta Est. On the way is the vantage point:

A few minutes walk is Punta Est. Lia has a “scooter” at the entrance and she always makes it a point to “ride” on it before going down the steps.

One of the bars, Blue Bar, we go to for aperitivo, pizza, and wi-fi. There is also a great view but really, we go here for the… wi-fi.

On this day, there was a nice sunset going on so we stopped again after a couple of drinks at Blue Bar and on the way back home to take more photos.

She kept asking me if I was photos of her. I kept on saying no and that I was taking photos of the sunset.
