Our 5 Tips


1. Capo Testa (Santa Teresa)

You must drive north until you reach the Capo Testa lighthouse after the village of Santa Teresa. Sit down on the rock you prefer and enjoy the most mystical sunset in Sardinia. When the Mistral wind from the north-west blows hard, the great waves break on the granite cliffs and produce high and incredible splashes. Do not stay too close to the sea.
