Capo Testa, Santa Teresa Gallura

(1,100+ reviews on the web)
Wildlife Area
The protected beaches of Capo Testa are a magnet for swimmers. The rocky, granite peninsula, which is attached to Sardinia's mainland by an isthmus, is only about ten kilometers (6.2 miles) across. The Romans once used the small peninsula to mine the granite for their magnificent cities. The caves where the stone was quarried were last used as a source of building materials in the early 20th century. Pull on a pair of shoes with a strong grip and hike around the eroded rocks to admire the formations smoothed and shaped by the wind. Capo Testa is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Santa Teresa Gallura Edition.

  • Great view on the coast and on the nearby Corsica. Nice to get "lost" in this rocky maze. Nice pictures to take!

  • The Cape itself is a journey worth (and only 20 minutes from our Ferienappartament in Porto Pozzo), but the most striking is the hike through the Valle della Luna, where there are still a few drop-outs and hippies in the caves have ensconced. This leads to a Delta down to the sea, then increases to snake way up the rock, comes to a second Bay, and ends up after an adventurous hike in the lighthouse. A beautiful, magical place - be it to the hiking, climbing, philosophize, dream.

  • To the North of Sardinia Capo Testa, a promontory formed by granite rocks that the wind shaped. There are numerous beaches sheltered from the wind among which the most famous is the Valley of the moon.

  • It's impressive! Those rocks looks like bones, very curious. The path is not so difficult but I recommend to use appropriated shoes.
  • Beautiful rocky playground for hippy living, slackline waterlines and parkour!
  • Great photo shoot.
  • Great place, especially in light of the sunset. Amazing rocks, a nice view of the coast of Bonifacio (Corsica). The beautiful lighthouse. Do not forget the path that leads to Cala della Luna and visit the archaeological site, on the way to Capo Testa

  • Must-visit place if you are in the area. Offers a breathtaking spectacle with its rocks smoothed by time and the arm of the sea, threatening, separating us from corsica. I visited at dusk, the warm glow of the Sun and the colours of the place made the magic moment, indelible.
