San Teodoro, Sardinia, with the Sirocco (South East), is a spot with a high fun factor. An immense bay of white and fine sand, emerald water, side on constant wind, and regular chop conditions.
Windsurfing, spot reviews: San Teodoro, La Cinta (Sardinia, Italy)
Conditions for windsurfing are so beautiful with the South east wind, that there are riders who come here from the peninsular Italy also just for a weekend ....
Cinta Beach (where the spot is really positioned) in San Teodoro is located 30/40 minutes by car, south of Olbia (see map at the end of the article). The bay is immense and very scenic: the contrast between the white sand and the color of the Caribbean water, and the Tavolara island in the background, strike immediately, both people who get there for the first time and even the returning visitors. The beach is directly reachable, accessing the parking areas for cars/campers, only in the southern part. In the Northern part of the beach, infact, the large coastal pond of San Teodoro prevents car access (and therefore the northern part of the beach is only accessible by walking on sand for a while). If you want, though, you could access the bay in the far North (Puntaldia Beach), but here the South east wind (which is the main wind the spot works with) comes quite completely onshore.
Central part omitted. The reading of the main part of this article is reserved to Waterwind Supporters. To become a Supporter, click here.
Regarding the logistics, near the windsurf exit point, there are some bars, where refreshments are available (e.g. Blù Bistrò La Cinta).
Just south of the beach, there is the village of San Teodoro, where you can find the main shops you can need.
In the Village, there is also a windsurfing shop, Wet Dreams, actually more oriented to Kitesurfing. Surfstar windsurf school also operates at the spot.
We did not have the chance to stay for the night at San Teodoro, because we always came here from Palau day (which is also convenient to reach the spots in Santa Teresa di Gallura area, in the case of Mistral). However, being a popular sea side resort, it should be easy to find accommodations for all budgets with the usual websites (e.g. Booking.com). We also give evidence of the presence of Camping San Teodoro, quite near the spot of the spot.
Finally, it should be noted, that shortly to the North (about 15-20 minutes by car), there are the freestyle spot of Murta Maria (or Marina Maria) and Saline, who also work with Sirocco (SE), Grecale (NE), and Mistral (NW).
If you have suggestions or tips, post them in the comments at the end of the article.
