Isolotti La Vacca ed il Vitello - S. Antioco (Sardegna)

Isolotti La Vacca ed il Vitello - S. Antioco (Sardegna)



La Vacca islet, flat top and steep banks, houses the home of an old lighthouse.

It is extended to N and SW by shoals.

Beside it is the small del Vitello islet, devoid of vegetation and pierced big shots, still visible in the rock, fired from ships in exercises.

It is not possible to anchor near the islets because the founds are high.

L'îlot de La Vacca, au sommet plat et aux rives escarpées, porte la maison de l'ancien phare.

Il est prolongé au N et au SW par des hauts-fonds.

A côté se trouve la petite île del Vitello, dépourvue de végétation et percée de gros projectiles, encore bien visibles dans la roche, tirés depuis des navires en exercices.

On ne peut pas mouiller près de ces îlots à cause des basses profondeurs.

Isolotti La Vacca
La Vacca island and Vitello islet
L'isolotto della Vacca, alla cima piatta e alla riva ripide, ha la casa del vecchio faro.

Si è esteso a N e SW da banchi.

Vicino ad essa si trova la piccola isola del Vitello, poco più che uno scoglio, privo di vegetazione e traforato da grossi proiettili ancora ben visibili nella roccia, sparati dalle navi nelle esercitazioni.

Non si puo dar fondo vicino le isolotti perchè i fondali sono bassi.
