About the location

Considered the most likely location of the ancient city of Tibula, Santa Teresa Gallura is a place steeped in history and surrounded by some of the most spectacular Sardinian scenery. The beachfront setting provides a beautiful outlook over the sea and lends the town a laid-back atmosphere, as well as supplying a whole host of water-based activities, including snorkelling and boat trips.

One of the city’s most recognisable attractions is the round tower known as Torre di Longonssardo, which dates from the 16th century and overlooks the popular Rena Bianca beach. Closer to the town’s heart, the main piazza is a traditional affair, complete with pretty terracotta buildings and peaceful pavements cafes. Gelaterie and bustling cafes are among the most popular dining options but there are also a handful of quaint, family-run trattorie serving up richly flavoured pasta dishes alongside the locally produced Cannonau di Sardegna wine. 

Just along from the town, the beautiful rock outcrops of the Capo Testa provide great photo opportunities, as well as the chance to visit a Bronze Age ruin. With the Maddalena Archipelago close by too, it’s easy to book boat tours that showcase some of the coastline’s most scenic spots.
