Capo Testa will be one of the most unexpected discoveries on your trip though northern Sardinia: This unique headland overlooking the crystal clear sea of the Strait of Bonifacio is connected to the Sardinian Mainland only by a narrow sandy isthmus, with two twin beaches side by side: Rena di Ponente and Rena di Levante that offers water lovers a choice between a calm and a windy beach.
Just 4 km from Santa Teresa, Capo Testa can also be reached through the pleasant and charming nature trail Sentiero Natura, a footpath which leads through the rocky granite monuments and the Mediterranean wild of the coastline.
Once you across the strip of sand that separates Capo Testa from the mainland, you can admire one of the most majestic natural wonders of Sardinia: Simply follow the giant granite rocks shaped by the wind that will guide you along a picturesque and timeless walk, accompanied by the scents and colours of the Mediterranean. A network of paths leads to a lighthouse, some hidden coves and to watchtowers and ruins of old military buildings.
The ever- familiar presence of the blue sea of Sardinia completes the sense of striking grandeur that dominates this scenery.
Capo Testa is a paradise for friends of hiking and climbing, but also for lovers of the sea. You will find one of the most famous and fascinating postcard pictures of Northern Sardinia: Cala Grande, better known as the Valley of the Moon, an indescribable spectacle of outstanding natural beauty that opens to the sea, flanked by wind-sculptured rocks.
