Characteristics

Description

S Comino cape, the coast is high, rocky and unhealthy until point Ginepro (Cinepro) point and then lowered. It is advisable to keep more than 1 NM from the shore.

Golfo di Orosei entered close S of Punta Nera, is bordered by a shorebank which extends 4 miles SW of the N entrance point. This stretch of the coast should not be approached closer than 1 mile due to the alluvial deposits brought down by Fiume Cedrino.

The land behind the shorebank is low and marshy, but the rest of the coast of the gulf is mostly high, steep, and inaccessible.

A wreck, with a depth of 8m, lies about 1.2 miles offshore, 1.7 miles SSW of Punta Nera.

Au S du cap Comino, la côte est élevée, rocheuse et malsaine jusqu'à la pointe Ginepro (Cinepro) et s'abaisse ensuite. Il est conseillé de se tenir à plus de 1 M du rivage.

Le golfe de Orosei s'ouvre entre la pointe Nera, qui est basse et allongée, et le cap de Monte Santu, à 18 M au S. La pointe Noire est débordée par un banc qui s'étend sur 4 MN au SW de l'entrée N de la pointe.

La côte derrière le banc est basse et marécageuse mais le reste de la côte du golfe est haut, aride et inaccessible.

Une épave, à 8 m de fond, se trouve à 1/2 MN au large, à 1,7 MN au SSW de Punta Nera.
