The Marine Protected Area develops along one of the most beautiful stretches of coast in the Mediterranean. Not far from the Costa Smeralda, the area is characterized by the presence of pink granites, belonging to the Gallura granite pluto, from quartz-feldspathic coastal beaches and from the limestone-dolomitic reliefs of the island of Tavolara, from Capo Ceraso (south of Olbia), to Punta l'Isuledda (south of San Teodoro). Tavolara is defended on all sides by ramparts that make it difficult to access; this has favored the conservation of a wild nature, which has remnants of olive wood and juniper spots. On the cliffs the only seaweed that manages to form fairly large turf is the Halimeda tuna. Great is the fauna importance of the area, in particular for the presence of a rich birdlife (at least 152 bird species, 69 of which nesting). Among the mammals present, we remember the Sardinian hare, the fox, the wild cat, the marten and the weasel.
