Beautiful scenery, but parking is a pain

Definitely worth a visit. The rock formations are beautiful, the wind is strong and the views are endless. There is also a beach - though we did not visit so I cannot comment. One challenge is parking; there is no car park, so everyone parks on the sides

This beach is quite nice, of course, with pebbles, but the clear water from the area makes it a wonderful stop. I visited it while staying at the Resort next door.

Torre di Longonsardo

The Tower of Longonsardo was built between the 1577 and 1599. Made of granite blocks, the tower is 19 metres in diameter and it's 11 metres high. There were no stairs in the tower (a rope ladder was used for a long time instead). In the middle of the main area, originally divided into three rooms, stands a big column that supports the vaulted ceiling. Moreover, there is still a basin dug into the rock, next to the south-eastern internal wall, that supplied the garrison with rainwater. In 1802 the captain Magnon took the leadership and solicited the King to create a new town. In fact the 12th August 1808 he founded the little town of Santa Teresa Gallura. Opening hours from 10:00 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 4p.m. to 8 p.m. (from april to october)
