Capo Testa, Santa Teresa Gallura

4.8
#1 of 184 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.

  • We spent a few hours one late afternoon hiking at Capo Testa - it was a fantastic experience. The paths are broad and well-marked and the views are fabulous. The rock formations are fascinating...  more »
  • First day in Sardinia and we opted for a road trip. About 1 hrs 20 min from our base in Porto Cervo, this was a treat. A rocky outcrop great to explore. Great views from the faro (lighthouse).  more »

  • Lovely scenic place
  • Capo Testa is definitely a must visit in north Sardinia. Amazing landscape, awesome views (especially for the sunset), unbelievable small beaches -although you better skip peak summer season-.
