Golfo di Palmas (Sardegna)



Golfo di Palmas is entered between Teulada cape to SEand Sperone cape to SW. It is bounded to W by the E coast of San Antioco island.
The head of Golfo di Palmas consists of a low and sandy isthmus which connects Isola di Sant’ Antioco to the mainland.

The gulf is open to the S, the seas raised by winds from that direction are considerably decreased by the time they reach the inner roadstead anchorages.

Le Golfe de Palmas s'étend entre le Cap Teulada au SE et le cap Sperone, au SW. Il est délimité à l'W par la côte E de l'île San Antioco.
Le fond du golfe de Palmas se compose d'un isthme bas et sablonneux qui connecte l'île de Sant'Antioco au continent sarde.

Le golfe est ouvert aux vents du S, mais la mer soulevée par le vent du S diminue considérablement à l'approche des points de mouillage à l'intérieur du golfe.
