The sea is so beautiful, we'd rather stay here and have a fun in the Emerald beach next time. We met a couple of guys from Abignon and Spain and enjoyed chatterring together. Spanish guy said...

A landscape of boulders, low-lying Mediterranean plants and roiling azure waves, Capo Testa is an adventurous day hikers paradise. While spending five fantastic June days in northeastern Sardinia, we explored the Gallura region with a hike every morning and a swim at a new beach every afternoon. Driving approximately four kilometers west of Santa Theresa di Gallura, we parked the... More

Breathtaking rock formations and beaches near the lighthouses. Be sure to visit Santa Teresa afterwards for an ice-cream or a meal.

This was much nicer than the busy beaches around the island. You can swim from cove to cove and jump off the rocks. The water is beautiful. I also liked that you can hike if you don't want to lay on the beach all day. We went to the area near the lighthouse. There are 2 places to get food.... More

If you have time, take 20 minutes to drive -carefully- there. The environment is beautiful with bushes, rocks and a pleasant Mediterranean atmosphere. The beaches are rocky and quite picturesque: an unforgettable experience.

Lovely sandy beach with beautiful clear water. Easily reached by car or bus from Santa Teresa. Take a walk around the lighthouse where there is a small cove where you can swim.

Spent an hour or so here, interesting rock formations and good views. Wear sturdy shoes! Lovely clear green seas. Interesting to see the different rock types side by side, would like to know how it formed.

I have been shocked by first look at this place, The hills spreaded of huge and stange shaped rocks, the sea paratically cut in two by a stretch road . It is impossible to describe the beauty of this breathtaking place if you do not see it in real . Quite far out from normal touristic places ( unless you... More

Beautiful location to take a stroll and enjoy spectacular views of the surroundings, including alien-like rock formations and a gorge down to the sea.

Simply breathtaking and stunning and well worth a drive there. Go prepared with good footwear to climb the rocks and a camera. The scene looks like something out of a Jurassic park film but all natural.
