Golfo degli Aranci (Sardegna)

Golfo degli Aranci (Sardegna)



Degli Aranci gulf is is bounded, on the N, by the peninsula of which Capo Figari is the E extremity.

This gulf is sheltered from NE and NW winds. Strong SE winds send in a heavy sea and storms from the N and E cause a considerable swell in the gulf. During offshore winds, which are prevalent in winter, the water level in the gulf may be lowered.

The bottom is mostly mud and weed with good holding ground.

The Aranci Gulf harbour is very busy due to its geographical position (it is closer to the peninsula).

The Gulf has another shelter for yachts with its  bay Caddinas marina.

Le golfe degli Aranci est délimité, au N, par la presqu'île du cap Figari, situé à son extrémité E.

Ce golfe est protégé des vents du NE et du NW. Les forts vents de SE génèrent une mer forte et les tempêtes venant du N et de l'E provoquent une houle considérable dans le golfe. Pendant la période des vents du large, qui sont dominants en hiver, le niveau de l'eau dans le golfe peut baisser.

Le fond, mélange de boue et d'algues, est de bonne tenue.

Le port du golfe Aranci est très fréquenté grâce à sa position géographique (c'est le plus proche de la presqu'île).

Le golfe offre un autre abri aux plaisanciers avec son port de plaisance de la baie de Caddinas.

Golfo degli Aranci (Sardegna)
Golfo degli Aranci è delimitata a N dalla penisola di Capo Figari, che si trova alla fine E.

Questo golfo è protetto dai venti da NE e NW. I forti venti SE generano mari agitati e le tempeste del N e E causano un rigonfiamento notevole nel Golfo. Durante il periodo di venti di largo, che sono dominanti in inverno, il livello dell'acqua nel Golfo può diminuire.

Il fondo del mare, fango e alghe, è di buona condotta.

Il porto di Golfo Aranci è uno dei più trafficati scali marittimi grazie alla particolare esposizione geografica (è il più vicino alla penisola).

Il Golfo offre un altro rifugio per i naviganti con il suo porto turistico di baia Caddinas.
