The most emblematic beach, La Cinta, closes itself up north with Puntaldìa. Right after the promontory, you will find two other San Teodoro jewels, with such beautiful sand and sea that it is hard to pick a favourite. One is called Lu Impostu (“place of shipping”), a name whose origins are unknown – perhaps it was once a trade post and shipping place. What we do know is that it is a natural work of art, one of the main attractions in the Gallura. One kilometre long and very wide, this beach is made of dunes of very fine and soft sand, white and glittery, dotted with juniper trees and mimosas, thistles and sea lilies. The clear water reflects sunbeams, looking anything from azure to green. The shallow bottom is perfect for children; it is mostly sandy and gently deepens as you move away from the shoreline.
