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.

  • Reaching the CAPO Testa Santa Teresa coming over a narrow Causeway, on both sides of the Spiagge di due Mari is decorated and is totally parked in August. Therefore it is not surprising that the road of the 15.6.-15.9. is blocked for all larger vehicles (caravans and camper). Has it reached the parking lot before the Cape iron gates remind that the terrain was formerly military area. Meandering trails through the wilderness. With good shoes (hiking or trekking sandals), Cape with occasional games of clambering over rocks can be climbed. Scenic highlight for us was the "Valle della Luna" (see separate review).

  • Beautiful views, good for 1 hour walk if you are nearby. Propably not worth driving there only to see it. Remember about comfortable shoes.

  • 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.
