It is named this way because it seems that years ago it was frequented by cows that lazed here peacefully in the sun. Today, it continues to be a small, restful corner of paradise on earth, set between granite rocks with soft lines shaped by the wind and surrounded by Mediterranean scrub. The ‘spiaggia delle vacche’ (beach of the cows) is located in the territory of San Teodoro, in the locality of Monte Petrosu, and is part of the marine protected area of Tavolara – Capo Coda Cavallo. It is a small thirty-metre strip of fine cream-coloured sand, rocky outcrops and a crystal clear sea, reflecting shades varying from blue to emerald green depending on the light. The water is shallow with a sandy seabed and is sheltered from the winds. From the beach, you can admire a captivating panorama, with the islands of Tavolara and Molara in front of theIsolotto Rosso (Red Islet) with the promontories of Porto San Paolo on the left. At sunset, the rocks are coloured with various pink and reddish shades.
