This article presents a morpho-sedimentological map of a Mediterranean embayed microtidal wave-dominated beach system and related inner shelf. The study area is located between Capo Boi and the Torre de su Fenugu sector, and focuses on Solanas beach in SE Sardinia. All of the collected data were processed to draw a main 1:7,000 scale map, which shows the general characteristics of the entire area, including its hydrodynamic, morphological, and sedimentological features (distribution of siliciclastic and biogenic/bioclastic sediments), rocky outcrops, beach rocks, and marine phanerogam meadow coverage (mainly Posidonia oceanica). Several secondary maps such as routes and paths, side-scan sonar photomosaic interpretations, and sedimentary facies have also been included. In addition to its scientific value, the map can be an important tool for beach management purposes.
