Tavolara, an island of legends
Tavolara is an island located in north- east Sardinia, in the Marine Protected Area of Tavolara - Punta Coda Cavallo. You can easily reach it from Porto San Paolo harbour. The island is a huge limestone massif 550 m high, with cliff faces overlooking the sea. On the west side of the island, you will find a long sandy strip of land, Spalmatore di Terra, which houses few dwellings and two typical restaurants. Its troubled story, made of pirates, kings and conquests, together with its rare beauty make the island one of the most stunning and evocative attractions of Sardinia.
