Golfo Malfatano (Teulada Sardegna)

Characteristics

Description

The small Malfatano gulf, appearance desert, ends at W Malfatano Cape.

Tuarredda islet, facing the beach, can be reached on foot from the latter by low tide.

Care must be taken to shallow areas that occupy a good half of the Gulf. Keep the left when entering the Gulf.
If your Draft is greater than 2 m, it is impossible to get into alignment Tuarredda-Spartivento.
At the bottom, but only for those who have a draft of 1,5 m there are buoys for local fishing boats.

Sandbars mixed with mud and weed are constantly in moving, it is necessary to be very careful!

Le petit golfe Malfatano, d'aspect désertique, se termine à l'W par le cap Malfatano.

L'îlot Tuarredda, face à la plage, peut être rejointe à pied depuis celle-ci  par marrée basse.

Il faut prendre garde aux zones peu profondes qui occupent une bonne moitié du golfe. Se tenir à gauche en entrant dans le golfe.
Si votre TE est supérieur à 2 m, il est impossible de se mettre dans l'alignement Tuarredda-Spartivento.
Au fond, mais seulement pour ceux qui ont un TE à 1,5 m au plus, il y a des bouées pour les bateaux de pêche locaux.

Les bancs de sable mélangés avec de la boue et les algues sont constamment en mouvement, il est nécessaire d'être très prudent!

Il piccolo golfo di Malfatano, di aspetto deserto si termina all'W da il capo Malfatano.

L'isolotto Tuarredda, di fronte alla spiaggia, puo essere raggiunto a piedi da questa da bassa marea.

Attenzione ai bassi fondali che occupano una buona metà del golfo. Occorre tenersi sulla sinistra in entrata nello golfo.
Per chi pesca fino a 2 m, è impossibile spingersi oltre l’allineamento Tuarredda-Spartivento.
In fondo, ma solo per chi pesca fino a 1,5 m, vi sono dei gavitelli usati da pescherecci locali.

I banchi di sabbia mista a fango e alghe si spostano continuamente, per cui è necessario prestare la massima attenzione!
