Heading north from Portisco and leaving the La Maddalena National Park behind, you reach Santa Teresa di Gallura, the town lying in front of Corsica, opposite the Strait of Bonifacio. This is the starting point for a wonderful tour through northeastern Sardinia.
Santa Teresa di Gallura – Porto Liscia / Isola dei Gabbiani 41°11’39.96”N - 9°17’19.46”E
Off the Northeastern coast of Sardinia lies Isola dei Gabbiani (Seagulls’ island), about 6 kilometers away from Palau. With an approximately 180,000 square meter area, it is connected to the mainland via a sandy isthmus. The Liscia beach – eight kilometers long with an area of about 87-hectares – is the largest sandy expanse in the northeastern coast. The coarse-grained granite sand is golden coloured and is washed by crystal-clear waters and has a sandy shallow seabed. It looks onto the La Maddalena Archipelago, Caprera and Spargi, Spargiotto, Santo Stefano and Budelli islets. The beach is equipped with facilities and offers numerous beach and catering services. It is the perfect destination for windsurfers, being visited by the Tramontane, Mistral and Ponente winds (from north, northwest and west).
