Holiday in San Teodoro
Easy to reach from the main ports of the north of the island, San Teodoro is the ideal destination for a fun and relaxing break, thanks to its beautiful beaches and its wild and unspoiled nature. San Teodoro is part of the sub-region of Gallura, completely surrounded by a series of charming bays and spectacular coastline, in an area so beautiful it is now protected from development. Holidays in San Teodoro are a guarantee of peace and relaxation: just what you need to disconnect from the routine and hectic pace of daily life.
Although primarily known for its crystal clear sea, the area boasts a wide variety of natural landscapes. From the coastal wetlands, including a vast lagoon that is home to migratory birds, to the mountains of the hinterland, with the main peak of Monte Nieddu. Travelling just a few kilometres in any direction you’ll notice visible changes in the surrounding scenery. Stunning views, natural waterfalls and ancient buildings bear witness to the history and rural life of Sardinia in times gone by, which now live on in its traditions and typical cuisine based on the simplest ingredients. But San Teodoro is so much more: It is also outdoor sports, adventure and the fascination of discovery, entertainment, night-life and popular traditions coming back into fashion thanks to the festivals that take place especially in summer. San Teodoro has preserved almost all its most important historical features intact, many of them shaped by the traditional rural life of Gallura. The old town, in fact, is not so different from the original, with the church, buildings and other structures still retaining the appearance and typical architectural features of the past.
Undisputed environmental heritage of both Sardinia and Italy, the beaches of San Teodoro extend for a stunning 37 km, flanked by granite cliffs of rare beauty and soft sandy beaches of fine white sand. Three of the twelve main beaches of San Teodoro: La Cinta, Cala D’Ambra and Isuledda, are easily accessible from the city centre. San Teodoro's beaches are part of the Tavolara - Punta Coda Cavallo Protected Marine Area, where investments have been made to enhance the environment and guarantee the quality of the sea and facilities.
If you want to spend a different and alternative day in San Teodoro, that doesn't involve the sea, you can always head for the mountains. The Nieddu Mountain range, with the highest peak being Punta Magghjóri, is 970 metres above sea level. Monte Nieddu dominates the plain of San Teodoro and provides an extraordinary opportunity for quality eco-tourism, ideal for hikers, walkers and mountain bikers.
