San Teodoro

Overview

With 18 beaches, you're spoilt for choice

Located in Gallura, in the north-eastern part of Sardinia, San Teodoro is a very popular tourist destination. Its history dates back to the time of Roman domination, as reported in the 3rd-century text Itinerarium Antoninianum, when it was known as 'Coclearia'. In the 17th century, shepherds and fishermen also populated the hinterland east of Mount Nieddu, creating what is now the famous urban agglomeration.

San Teodoro is now one of the most popular and beloved locations in Sardinia, thanks to no fewer than 18 white sandy beaches, lapped by a crystal-clear sea. Among the most famous are La Cinta, Cala Brandinchi and Lu Impostu. Apart from the seaside, San Teodoro offers a host of other attractions, such as the pine forest of Punta Molara, the Tavolara Nature Park and the historic centre of the town, with its churches and granite houses.

San Teodoro is also the ideal starting point for nature walks to beautiful locations such as the nearby Tavolara Island and the Capo Coda Cavallo headland. The local municipality also organises numerous cultural and sporting events every year, such as the International Music Festival, the Festival of Fitness and many more.
