Holidays in Santa Teresa di Gallura: what to do
Santa Teresa Gallura is located in northern Sardinia, just in front of the island Corsica and the Strait of Bonifacio.
Surrounded by the sea, the historic center is perfect for an evening stroll, while discovering the charming artisan shops and the typical restaurants where you can enjoy a variety of Sardinian dishes based on fresh fish or meat.
Capo Testa and the Valle della Luna
The most fascinating attraction in the surroundings of Santa Teresa Gallura is the promontory of Capo Testa, set at about 5 Km from the town center. From the lighthouse of Capo Testa you can enjoy the breathtaking view of the cliffs of Bonifacio.
This promontory is made of granite rocks of different shapes, surrounded by the sea and sculpted by the wind. Amidst its rocks the Valle della Luna (Moon Valley), a stretch of beach dotted with granite rocks and caves that make the landscape look like a lunar landscape, is certainly worth a visit. This area, where a small Hippie community still lives, is suitable for hikers looking for stunning views.
Trekking, horse riding and archaeological sites.
The area of Santa Teresa Gallura offers the possibility to horseride on the paths that lead from the town to the bay of Santa Reparata or hiking following the track that starts from the Church of Buon Cammino or the promontory of Capo Testa.
Bonifacio and Corsica
Visitors can easily take a ferry boat from Santa Teresa Gallura to reach Bonifacio, a small town on the Corsican sea. Bonifacio is a medieval village perched on the white cliffs overlooking the sea that will welcome you with its pictoresque streets full of handicraft shops.
