General description: Capo Testa BeachCapo Testa
Capo Testa is the northern most point of Sardinia. It is 2 kilometers west of Santa Teresa di Gallura and is probably one of the prettiest sites in all of Sardinia.
Getting to Capo Testa
You can reach Capo Testa with a car but parking is very limited. From there you will need to walk through a gate. To the right of this gate you will see a romantic cove which can be reached via a short climb down. Make sure you are wearing walking shoes as the area is covered in rocks.
Apart from the Lighthouse there are many interesting Granite cliffs which the wind and the Mediterranean water have shaped into strange shapes. Many of these formations have been named after animals, due to their similarities.
On the peninsula you will find the Valle di Luna, which was the home of many hippies in the 1970s. Soon after, camping was forbidden in the area, however, today it is allowed during the high season.
Of course there are beaches as well. However, you can only access these beaches by hiking down a steep path. You will be rewarded by stunning waves crashing onto the cliffs.
The climate of Sardinia is Mediterranean with hot, long summers. Temperatures average 28 Celsius in July and August. The summer usually lasts 6 months, meaning that you can swim from May to October.
