Santa Teresa di Gallura
Capo Testa is a small peninsula overlooking the Strait of Bonifacio, located in Northern Sardinia, 5 km far from Santa Teresa di Gallura and connected to the mainland by a sandy isthmus formed by the beaches of Rena di Ponente and Rena di Levante. It offers a variety of beaches with waters crystal clear and shallow, ideal for holidays with children. The surrounding area is formed of luxuriant Mediterranean scrub, which frames one of the wildest and most beautiful sea area in the Mediterranean.
Among the many beaches in the area, we recommend: Capo Testa, long beach surrounded by the Mediterranean scrub; Valle della Luna or Cala Grande, fine white sand surrounded by spectacular granite boulders, and popular since the 1970s by hippies and nudists; the Liccia, also this characterized by clear and shallow water; the beautiful Cala Spinosa, known for its clear waters (one of the favorite for divers) and protected by high cliffs and that, in the extreme north of the beach along the rocky ridge on the right side, shows the remains of the ancient Roman port of Tibula; Rena Bianca Beach in Santa Teresa di Gallura with crystal clear water and white and fine sand.
The Capo Testa promontory, perched on the white cliffs, it is crossed by an endless network of trails of an ancient easement for military purpose and is dotted with watchtowers and ruins of old military buildings recently restored, and casting a glance over the Strait, it is possible to admire the village of Bonifacio.
In this area the most known typical recipe is the Zuppa Gallurese (see post), or “Suppa cuata“, once offered only in marriages, and prepared with slices of bread and cheese(see post) soaked in mutton broth, paired with a good Vermentino di Gallura (see post), DOCG wine with an intense and enjoyable scent.
