Capo Testa, Santa Teresa Gallura
(4.8/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Arrived by bike to admire a spectacular sunset in late October, including a beautiful bathroom in a Bay below (5 minutes footpath). It was worth it!

  • The place is very beautiful for the panoramic view facing the Strait of Bonifacio. The water is crystal clear with shades of blue and green. The white rock formations rounded by erosion make a place a little lunar and mysterious.

  • Clear, flip flops are also, but: you bring sneakers and climbs wild away! The stones around CAPO Testa are strangely easy to grip and makes it a lot of fun, wild and off duck rustic to clamber through the area easy. Admission does not cost the terrain, is running something over but sometimes. In the summer it is one - water and a bite to eat to have latest actions, climbing - really hot, enough so I absolutely recommend. Depending on the season and time of day there :) is a food cart at the entrance and a restaurant within walking distance, but... just FYI And then cometh the magnificent view and the magnificent sea, but... This is so nearly goes without saying! So: purely in the sneakers and CAPO Testas stone desert!

  • 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.
