The most beautiful beach of Capo Testa
Just 4 kilometres from Santa Teresa Gallura, a small, secluded and therefore pristine and wild beach surprises and enchants visitors. Welcome to Cala Spinosa, one of the brightest pearls of Capo Testa, a small promontory in northern Sardinia.
Its name (which translates as “spiny beach”) befits its geography, rugged and inhospitable, enclosed by sheer cliffs overlooking the sea. These high cliffs shelter the beach from the wind and ensure that the sea at Cala Spinosa is always calm, with clear waters and turquoise and emerald reflections. The seabed is shallow but rocky, perfect for snorkelling enthusiasts who can observe the animal and plant species that inhabit this natural paradise. All you have to do is don mask and snorkel and dive in.
Capo Testa is full of beaches and coves waiting to be discovered, including Cala Grande that can be reached through a suggestive path in the Valle della Luna (Moon Valley), so called because of the gigantic white granite boulders, shaped by millenary wind erosion. Moreover, along the isthmus that joins the peninsula-promontory to the mainland lie two other beautiful beaches: Rena di Ponente and Rena di Levante.
