Ansa San Gemiliano (Arbatax Sardegna)

Ansa San Gemiliano (Arbatax Sardegna)



San Gemiliano cove opens at the most northern end of a long beach, sheltered by the promontory of Bellavista cape and a small tip that comes off, at the top of which stands the ruined tower `San Gemiliano.

The western side of the tip is bordered by emerging rocks and shoals and therefore we must anchor leaving at least 300 m without too close to the N of the beach.

The anchorage, in 3/6 m, is more quiet and less crowded than neighboring Porto Frailis.

L'anse S. Gemiliano s'ouvre à l'extrémité la plus septentrionale d'une longue plage à l'abri du promontoire du cap Bellavista et d'une petite pointe qui s'en détache, au sommet de laquelle se dresse la tour en ruine `San Gemiliano.

Le côté ouest de la pointe est bordé par des affleurements rocheux et des bas-fonds et, par conséquent, il faut ancrer en laissant au moins 300 m sans trop s'approcher du N de la plage.

Le mouillage, par 3/6 m, est plus calme et moins fréquenté que celui de PortoFrailis.
Ansa San Gemiliano (Arbatax Sardegna)
L’ansa San Gemiliano si apre nella parte piu` settentrionale di una lunga spiaggia, a ridosso del promontorio di capo Bellavista e di una piccola punta che da questo si stacca, alla cui sommita` sorge la torre diroccata di San Gemiliano.

La sponda occidentale della punta e`bordata da rocce affioranti e bassifondi e pertanto ci si deve ancorare lasciandola ad almeno 300 m e senza troppo avvicinarsi alla parte N della spiaggia.

L’ancoraggio, in 3/6 m, e` piu` tranquillo e meno frequentato di quello contiguo di Porto Frailis.
