Why take an excursion to Tavolara and Molara
Tavolara is a majestic mass of limestone and granite that rises from the sea almost vertically. It is 560 meters high and four kilometers long. The island of Tavolara is characterized by its inaccessible rocks that make it an excellent destination for trekking and climbing and for the fantastic shades that nature makes local plants take on according to the season, which then combine with those of the crystalline sea that surrounds it
The island of Tavolara is then the prominent emerged part of the marine protected area of Tavolara-Punta Coda Cavallo.
This spectacular sea area into Sardinian coast and islands extends for 76 kilometers that overlook the Gallura coast in the municipalities of Olbia, Loiri Porto San Paolo and San Teodoro. It consists of 15,000 hectares of crystal clear waters, inlets and coves that extend from Capo Ceraso to Punta s’Isuledda.
Your trip to Tavolara and Molara moves to the latter island
Less known, however, molara has its own peculiar traits. For example, although the island is rocky and rather inaccessible, there are several perennial freshwater springs. And it is thanks to the abundance of water that it has been inhabited since ancient times. The Flora of Molara is also made up of a very rich Mediterranean scrub vegetation, with centuries-old olive trees and very dense mastic trees.
A further curiosity of our boat trip to Tavolara and Molara is the visit to the wreck of the Chrisso ship.
This merchant ran aground on the rocks of Punta La Greca on New Year’s Eve 1974. A storm from the north made her unanchor and despite no damage to her crew, her fate was sealed from the first moment.
Her wreck is now a den for many fish that can be easily seen in the crystalline seabed where it lies.
