Santa Teresa Gallura displays one of Sardinia's most interesting landscapes.
Along its coasts, white-sand beaches are interspersed with magnificent granite cliffs, the shape of which often resembles that of fantastic human - or animal - like creatures, as in the case of the eagle in Capo Testa.
Flora is typically Mediterranean, and it includes the myrtle, cistus, broom and helichrysum shrubs, as well as the knotty juniper and cork trees.
Fauna is distinctly Sardinian: while the weasel is generally more elusive, it is not unusual to spot a shy turtle. The Bedriaga lizard, the "ephedroid" broom shrub, and - along sand dunes - the Silene Rosulata S. Theresiae are noteworthy endemisms.
