Rough nature, and an impressive light tower. A dinner in the open air restaurant just down is a must

Capo Testa is a wonderful little peninsula about 3 km far from Santa Teresa di Gallura. The area is full of picturesque rocks, smoothly carved by the power of the Mistral wind. You can find two main beaches (Rena di Levante and Rena di Ponente) one opposite to the other. One of the two coasts is always calm, depending upon... More

The beach in capo testa was a great discovery. After walking from Santa Teresa we reached the long beach with clear water.

IF YOU WANT AN EASY, LOVELY BEACH... What makes it special is the combination of some brilliant beaches and interesting rock formations. The most obvious classic beach for families is the... More

Great views from this rocky point, see across to Corsica. Nice walk around the headland, worth the trip out to see it.

This is has fantastic beaches with some cafes and has great walks along the lighthouse. This is a small area so I would advise that you get there early (both lighthouse or beach) If you are staying in Santa Teresa do not miss this area as it is only 5 minutes drive away.

It's a good time to spent the afternoons after the beach. We walked by foot from Santa Teressa throw national park and found many interesting plants we never saw before. Walking in the parke we felt like there is no any human beeing in this land. It was so quiet
