Lu Impostu is the third largest beach of the San Teodoro area, it has a total length of 1 kilometer. The beach faces east, offering stunning views of the Capo Coda Cavallo promontory to the north and Isola Tavolara standing tall behind it. Situated north of the promontory of Punta Aldia, Spiaggia di Lu Impostu consists of a long but rather narrow strip of white sand with a pond behind it (Stagno di San Teodoro). Its surroundings feature interesting bird life depending upon the time of year. The beach is easy to access and very friendly for families with children, as its waters remain shallow for quite a distance, and there’s plenty of fine white sand for walking and castle building until the sun sets. Besides the rental of sun umbrellas and kayaks, you won’t find too many facilities at this beach, though parking is convenient, and you’ll find a few beach huts selling delicious ice cream. On the south side of the beach, you’ll find a fish food restaurant and often a few markets and some shops. It’s a great beach to enjoy some beach tennis or frisbee. Last but not least, Lu Impostu beach is one of the best beaches of San Teodoro, so make sure you put this one on your to do list!
