Secca e isolotto di Genia (San Pietro Sardegna)

Secca e isolotto di Genia (San Pietro Sardegna)

Characteristics

Description

At about 600 m from the shore, it must be very careful at a small shoal barely touches the water and that should keep well offshore. The seabed in this area are low, around 5 m, and fell rapidly to about 25 m.

Even the small island of Genia, which emerges near the center of the bay to the west of the Pillars, the residue is certainly huge operation and tireless waves. In fact the funds are as huge boulders piled providing a safe haven for bars, snapper and croaker.

À environ 600 mètres de la rive, il faut faire très attention à un petit haut-fond qui effleure à peine l'eau et dont il faut se tenir bien au large. Les fonds marins dans cette zone sont faibles, autour de 5 m, et tombent rapidement à environ 25 m.

Même la petite île de Genia, qui émerge près du centre de la grande baie à l'ouest des Colonnes, est certainement le résidu du fonctionnement énormes et inlassable des vagues. En fait les fonds se présentent comme d'énormes rochers entassés qui fournissent un abri sûr aux bars, courbines et vivaneaux.

A circa 600 metri dalla riva bisogna fare molta attenzione a una piccola secca che riaffiora a pelo d'acqua, dalla quale bisogna tenersi bene al largo. I fondali in questa zona sono bassi, intorno a 5 metri, e scendono rapidamente a circa 25 metri.

Anche l'isolotto del Genia, che emerge quasi al centro della vasta insenatura ad ovest delle Colonne, è sicuramente il residuo del formidabile ed instancabile lavorio delle onde: infatti i fondali si presentano con enormi massi accatastati che offrono ricovero sicuro a spigole, corvine e dentici.
