Capo Testa, Santa Teresa Gallura

4.8
#1 of 157 in Wildlife in Sardinia
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.

  • Walk around the entire cape and enjoy unbeatable views. My son called it “an open air stone museum”. Fantastic!!!
  • Beautiful granite natural sculpture! Beautiful view of the open sea and Corsica! Crystal clear water!
  • One of the most suggestive places in north Sardinia. Don't miss it when the "Maestrale" wind blows strong and the high waves show all their power crashing against the rocks... It's a must see show of Nature ;)
  • Lovely place to go for walks on a sunny day
  • Despite being busy, this is a beautiful place. Especially recommended: walk around the granite rocks at Capo Testa.
