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.

  • Bella is the beach of dx (coming from Santa Teresa, right after the bridge) and the sx. The beach of dx is much smaller, less crowded and with Infinity on shore rocks (rock shoes, especially recommended for Hedgehog pathway); the beach is very wide, sandy and also left much more crowded. It has two access points, through a paid parking, including one suitable for disabled guests. The cliff that extends on the right hand side of the beach is almost entirely practicable, (always with ballet slippers rock) and offers many points from which to dive. Council the mask to see many fish that live there. Difficult to find parking, go early or late morning.

  • CAPO Testa is a place where you never stop exploring, it's been years that I go and maybe I'll be able to explore a tenth ... Not to be missed is the sunset from the lighthouse!

  • Head Chief, site later from the town of Santa Teresa di Gallura, offers a stunning backdrop, Emerald bays on the right coming near the lighthouse. The granite rocks are spectacular, a colorful game truly not to be missed. An area much frequented in summer.

  • 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.
