Holidays in Santa Teresa di Gallura: what to do
Santa Teresa Gallura is located at the northern far end of Sardinia, just in front of Corsica and the Bocche di Bonifacio.
Surrounded by the sea, the historic center is perfect for strolling in the evening, discovering artisan shops and typical restaurants where you can enjoy dishes based on fresh fish.
Capo Testa and Valle della Luna
In the surroundings of Santa Teresa Gallura, the most fascinating attraction is the promontory of Capo Testa distant 5 Km from the town center. From the lighthouse of Capo Testa you can enjoy a privileged view of the cliffs of Bonifacio.
This promontory is made up of granite rocks of different shapes, surrounded by the sea and beaten by the wind. Inside it is the Valle della Luna (Valley of the Moon), so called because of the rocks that with their shapes recall a lunar landscape. This area, where a small Hippie community still survives, is suitable for trekking and hikers looking for breathtaking views.
Trekking, horse riding and archaeological sites.
In the territory of Santa Terega Gallura it is also possible to take horseback rides, on the paths that lead from the village to Baia Santa Reparata or trekking on the paths that start from the Church of Buon Cammino or on the promontory of Capo Testa.
Bonifacio and Corsica
About an hour's ferry from Santa Teresa Gallura is Bonifacio, a small town on the Corsican sea. A must is a stop to browse through the artisan shops and visit this medieval village perched on the white cliffs overlooking the sea.
