The rock formations of valley of the moon... More

This is a MUST when you visit the north of sardinia, one of my favourites! I would recommend to go there in the evening, as there are less tourists, and the light of the sundown on the stones is fantastic. Have a drink in the nice open air lounge as a final (even if it is a bit expensive, but... More

Beautiful. But don't limit yourself to the main paths, take the trails to the left of the road through the brush and explore over the hill and down to the ocean. Get there early for parking and cooler temps.

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

Main beach is very overcrowded in summer months. Otherwise there is nothing else to dislike about this area.

All in all a remarkable place, - feels more like a small island, even though it's connected by a narrow isthmus to the Sardinian mainland near Santa Teresa Gallura. 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
