Nice panoramic walk

Beautiful views, good for 1 hour walk if you are nearby. Propably not worth driving there only to see it. Remember about comfortable shoes.

The Capo Testa is a beautiful place to walk around and experience some of the most dramatic scenery in Sardinia. It is well worth the drive. Spend an hour or so on your walk - we went in late afternoon when it wasn't too hot.

We explored the rocks around the light house and after that went to the secluded beach, loving both adventures! Nice view of the coast of Corsica.

Short drive from ST di Gallura stunning rock formations, fabulous rock beach ... you can hike. Beautiful lighthouse at the end of it. Sea Lounge bar located just above the rock beach with not so easy access.

We were on our way along the North cast of Sardinia and had read about the cape. We got a clear view of the coast of Corsica and could see the cliffs of Boniface. The rock formations are bizarre, one looking just like the head of ET.

Great views and good place to go hiking. Unfortunately we were hit by bad weather before we could go longer. But this is one of the few one places on Sardinia I would come back for!

A really stunning place that impresses with stunning rocks and coves, shaped by the nature. If you're in Northern Sardinia, it's a must-see. But you'de better take Good shoes with you.

We were a group of 4 adults and 6 kids who thoroughly enjoyed a gorgeous day hiking the giant boulders!! After a long hike we stopped for lunch and then took the hidden path down to the beach. We ended up swimming and snorkeling and having the beach to ourselves for the afternoon! It was amazing!

You can drive to the end of the road and get close to the stunning views of the coastline and across to Corsica.
