Santa Teresa Gallura is situated on the on the northernmost tip of the island. This is the closest point of Sardinia to Corsica and surrounded by one of the most beautiful seas in the world. However, the small town in the Gallura region has many more reasons worth visiting.
Not only does Santa Teresa offer seaside vacation, but also its clever location makes it the perfect starting point for various day trips to the most popular places and sights in central and northern Sardinia and the nearby Corsica.
The town is built around two bays: Porto Longone and Rena Bianca, two of the most beautiful beaches of Sardinia with great fine white sands.
The Romans appreciated this highly strategic position at short distance from its second colony in the western Mediterranean, the island of Corsica.
The legacy of the Romans can still be seen in the grid of streets that spans over the historic centre and the two high streets that join in the two main squares. Piazza Vittorio Emanuele offers a good selection of local shops and is crowded with tourists in the summer months. At the end of the Via XX Settembre avenue you will find the sixteenth century Aragonese tower of Santa Teresa. Come here to enjoy the breathtaking panorama on the Strait of Bonifacio and the coastline of Corsica.
Just a few steps from the centre, you can reach the marina, nestled in a picturesque fjord. From the ferry terminal, regular services depart for Bonifacio and pleasure boats offer day trips to the archipelago of La Maddalena, Asinara and the archipelago of Corsica.
The old town centre and the marina of Santa Teresa are just some of the stopovers on your journey that begins as you stroll past the town in company of a windy mistral breeze, and continues with the discovery of Northern Sardinia and the nearby Corsica.
