From Santa Teresa di Gallura, a sign- posted road on the left takes you in just a few minutes to Capo Testa. This isn’t a beach but a headland joined by an isthmus, with a cliff and sea suitable for bathing.
You reach the cape by crossing a landscape of maquis. Down below, the headland suddenly appears,
a staggering world of rock and wind
with a thousand shapes. In Roman times ships loaded with slabs of granite
for great building works in the capital sailed from here.
