Create an itinerary including Capo Testa
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. Put Capo Testa into our Santa Teresa Gallura trip maker website to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Santa Teresa Gallura.

  • Parking at Capo testa can be very busy so to be there early it is quite important. The Martini Beach club was quite good!

  • Fantastic place to trek and enjoy beaches. The granite natural sculpture and the abandoned lighthouse make this place surreal. Plenty of option and also you could spot some of the locals ( 🐐) climbing 😁. I would say is difficult with small kids due to access to the beach is quite rocky
  • Really impressing rocks & worth a visit! Parking not so easy and the trails need some hints where to go. The beach directly at Capo Testa is a unique place, but extremely crowded - and hard to reach (some „climbing“).
  • This is the most beautiful and interesting coast in Sardegna. Crystal clear water, some fish, strange rock formations and several path around. Be careful with the parking! If you manage to find a place, where the whole car is beyond the white line, you are lucky, you can park for free. If a part of your car crosses the white line, you will pay a nice fine,so better choice to find a blue line slot and pay at a machine...
  • The view is amazing. You can see Bonifacio city in Corsica. If you have time go for a walk you will enjoy.
  • Very unique rock formations, breathtaking views, good hiking, nice little beaches. Best experience in Sardinia
