Golfo di Cagliari (Sardegna)

Golfo di Cagliari (Sardegna)



Cagliari Gulf is entered between Capo Carbonara and Capo di Pula. The two sides of the gulf are mountainous, but a long stretch of sandy shore lies at the head and is broken only by Capo Sant’Elia.

Several extensive saltwater lagoons and areas of marshes lie behind the sandy shore.

The prevailing winds in the gulf are from the W and ENE, and these may increase suddenly to violent storm which can last for 3 days. The W winds gain in velocity as the barometer falls, while the ENE winds increase as the barometer rises.
