Along the Capo Malfatano stretch of coast, there is a combination of beaches with greyish sand, impervious cliffs and coves with amber-coloured sand, mixed with pebbles and rocks. The waters are shallow and transparent everywhere, with colours ranging from emerald green to turquoise. Of the beaches on the promontory, one very spectacular one that stands out is called Capo Malfatano, like the promontory, and it is situated between Tuerredda and Piscinnì. Along with Tuerredda, the beach that symbolizes the whole of Sardinia, and the splendid Porto Tramatzu, Cala Zafferano and the Dunes (or Is Arenas Biancas) in Porto Pino, it makes up the coastal treasure of Teulada.
