Sardegna North West

Sardegna North West



The Gulf of Asinara has no particular difficulty outside the Mistral blows particularly hard.
The Asinara was declared National Park and homes a penitentiary. The Fornelli pass, located between Asinara island and Piana island, can be very dangerous in rough seas and at night. Piana Island is lined with dangerous rocks and Pelosa pass is shallow.

Pelosa bay is beautiful and worth at seen.

Porto Torres, large commercial and industrial port is a major port which connects with a summer line, the French mainland to Sardinia. Castelsardo harbour below the pretty village of the same name, is not protected from the winds of N / NW that generate high, cross-swell at the entrance of the harbor.

Isola Rossa and small harbor close this area of NW Sardinia.
Le Golfe de l'Asinara ne présente pas de difficulté particulière en dehors du Mistral qui y souffle particulièrement violemment. 

L'île Asinara a été déclarée parc National et abrite un pénitencier. La passe des Fornelli, située entre l'île Asinara et l'île Piana, peut être très dangereuse par mer agitée et la nuit. L'île Piana, est bordée de rochers dangereux et la passe de la Pelosa est peu profonde.

La rade de La Pelosa est de toute beauté et vaut le détour.

Porto Torres, grand port commercial et industriel, est l'un des principaux ports qui relie, avec une ligne d'été, la Sardaigne au continent français. Le port de Castelsardo, aux pieds du joli village du même nom, n'est pas abrité des vents de N/NW qui génèrent une forte et dangereuse houle traversière à l'entréè du port.

L'Isola Rossa et son petit port clôture cette zone NW de la Sardaigne.

Il golfo dell'Asinara  non presenta particolari difficoltà, a parte il maestrale spesso violento.

L'isola Asinara è stata dichiarata parco nazionale e sede di un penitenziario. Il passo dei Fornelli, che si trova tra l'isola dell'Asinara e quella di Piana puo essere molto  pericoloso con mare mosso e durante la notte. L'isola Piana è francheggiata da rocce pericolose e il passo Pelosa è poco profondo.

Il porto di La Pelosa è magnifico e vale la pena di visitarlo.

Porto Torres, grande porto commerciale e industriale, è un importante porto che collega con una linea estiva, la Sardegna al continente francese. Porto Castelsardo ai piedi del bellissimo villaggio con lo stesso nome, non è protetta dai venti di N / NW che generano una barra pericolosa di traversia all'entrata del porto.

L'isola Rossa e il suo porticciolo chiuse questa zona NW della Sardegna.
