Stunning and magnificent landscape, where rocks meet at the same time wind, sea and skies, mixed together in a hard rock opera, to visit in a windy day when big black waves slam strongly into bizarre windsculpted rocks.

Yesterday, we visited capo Testa. It was very windy and this gave an extra dimension to our visit. The waves were magnificent and the salty air made our visit to the rock formations magical.

Amazing headland with beautiful beaches dotted around it alongside awesome granite formations. Some granite was mined here to build the Pantheon in Rome. If you're in the area, do not miss Capo Testa!

I've gone to Capo Testa by feet from Santa Teresa di Gallura; it's a 2 hours walk, and you can see the archaelogical site of Lu Brandali (Bronze Age Village) in the meantime. You find the Santa Reparata Bay, on the right of the bridge,...More

A beautiful place to see the sunset. The views are absolutely stunning and there are a lot of really nice hiking trails to enjoy.

By car, you cross an isthmus towards Capo Testa. There are caves from the Roman times and, they say, a hippie community. Hike at your ease, good for family trekking. It is believed that the Pantheon was built with these rocks.

We cycled up to this coast from inland to enjoy the views and sea breeze. It did not disappoint. We were also able to enjoy a welcome lunch.

At the end of the road, a lighthouse (can't enter, it's private, but you can walk around) in the middle of a moltitudine of rocks with funny shapes and heartbreaking views of the sea.

The place is very nice. Wonderful views from every place. The rocks looks like hand made statue. It is possible to walk and climb between the rocks. If you are around, don't miss this place

Catch it on a calm day and it would be blissful! A very clean, tidy beach with an extremely helpful and attentive lifeguard on duty.
