Cala di Volpe (Sardegna)

Cala di Volpe (Sardegna)



Cala di Volpe is a natural harbor, NE Sardinia.

Within this bay are installed mooring buoys that can be used to anchor ships same large size.

The entrance, flanked by two towers with red stripes and black, offers beautiful flat sandy bottom with no head rock under 4-5 meters of water.

Boats stand for most of this anchorage where only the SE winds raise a little choppy.
Towards the bottom of the creek, there is a channel marked by small red and white buoys along a long wooden pier. The depth does not exceed 1m at its end.

This channel joins a small harbor built below of a luxury hotel.
The basin is private, but you can dock the dock on the left as you enter for a visit to the hotel bar.

All the E coast of Cala di Volpe is unhealthy.

A long pontoon 1,50 m to 2m, moves toward the center of cala to the bottom.
You must tread move carefully to avoid the risk of running aground.

Cala di Volpe (Sardegna)
No mooring buoys off-season, beware of underwater mooring lines running between the entrance markers when anchoring between the red and green beacons at the mouth. (04/17)
Cala di Volpe est un port naturel, au NE de la Sardaigne.

A l'intérieur de cette baie sont installés des bouées de mouillage qui peuvent servir de mouillage même aux navires de grosse dimension.

L'entrée, encadrée par deux tourelles à bandes rouges et noires, présente de beaux fonds de sable plat sans aucune tête de roche sous 4 à 5 m d'eau.

Les bateaux se tiennent pour la plupart sur ce mouillage où seuls les vents du SE lèvent un peu de clapot.

Vers le fond de la calanque, on trouve un chenal balisé par des petites bouées rouges et blanches qui longent une longue estacade en bois. La profondeur ne dépasse pas 1m à son extrémité.

Ce chenal rejoint un petit port aménagé au pied d'un hôtel de grand luxe. Le bassin est privé, mais on peut accoster le quai sur la gauche en entrant pour une visite au bar de l'hôtel.

Toute la côte E de la cala di Volpe est malsaine.

Un long ponton de 1,50m à 2m, s'avance vers le centre de la cala jusqu'au fond.
Il faut avancer très prudemment pour ne pas risquer de s'échouer.
