palau is a completely mountainous coastal municipality of 4.207 inhabitants, located at 5 meters above sea level Province of Sassari, Its territory covers an area of 44,40 sq. km.
boarding obligatory point for the islands of La Maddalena, the country owes its success also to the narrow-gauge railway Sassari-Tempio-Palau.
Life revolves around the piers and moorings to the marina.
From Palau it is worth visiting the most famous and fascinating places on the coast: the promontory of Capo d'Orso, which culminates in a huge rock sculpted by the wind which recalls the shape of a bear's.
The Punta Sardegna is reached along the road leading up to Mount Altura and then down to the beach of Cala Trana, end of the tip.
The view from here is great, although the continuous expansion of built-up areas is ruining the beauty of the area.
The battery of Monte Altura, in a panoramic position, is just across the road that leads to Porto Raphael.
