A bay with turquoise waters and fine white sand, surrounded by Mediterranean scrub bushes. Halfway between Palau and Santa Teresa Gallura, near the mouth of the Liscia, Porto Pollo (Portu Puddu in Gallura dialect) unites mainland and the beautiful Isola dei Gabbiani (or Isuledda) through a thin strip of sand. The two isthmus beaches (the second is called dell’Arenaria) fan out with dunes covered in lavender, mastics and juniper trees, and are a natural gym for water sports. The area is constantly hit by winds, sometimes strong ones, which is why it is a particularly popular destination among sailors and practitioners of windsurfing and kite surfing. Somewhere along the bay, there will always be perfect surfing conditions, alternating with flat sea somewhere else.
