Isola Foradada (Sardegna)

Characteristics

Description

Facing the cliffs of Capo Caccia, to W, Foradada island (182 m high) is a fragment of coastline that was detached from the cliff a long time ago.

It is an imposing white limestone rock which owes its name to sardinian, to being "pierced" from left to right by a giant cave formed by the sea, forming visible part Foradada and partly submerged.

The island does not have landing points, you can reach it with the schedule and enter the cave on the west side even with big boats.

The island is part of the AMP Capo Caccia / I. Piana.

En face des falaises de Capo Caccia, à l'W, l'île de Foradada (182 m de haut) est un fragment de côte qui s'est détaché de la falaise il y a très longtemps.

C'est un imposant rocher de calcaire blanchâtre qui doit son nom en sarde, au fait d'être «percé» de gauche à droite par une grotte géante formée par la mer, en partie émergée formant Foradada, et en partie submergée.

L'île ne dispose pas de points de débarquement, vous pouvez l'atteindre avec l'annexe et entrer dans la grotte sur le côté ouest même avec de gros bateaux.

L'île fait partie de l'AMP Capo Caccia/I. Piana.

Di fronte alle falesie di Capo Caccia, all'W, l’isola Foradada (182 m di alta) è un frammento di costa separatosi dall'isola madre in tempi antichissimi.
È un imponente e suggestivo scoglio di biancheggiante calcare che deve il suo nome in sardo per essere di fatto "forato" da parte a parte da una gigantesca grotta scavata dal mare, da cui Foradada, ed in parte sommersa.

L'isola non presenta punti di approdo, è possibile arrivare solo in barca e accedere alla grotta sul lato ovest anche con barche di grandi dimensioni.

L'isola fa parte dell'AMP Capo Caccia  / I. Piana.
