The contrast between the brilliant colours of the sea, the warm granite rocks and the golden sand instils a sense of contemplation in the presence of the beauty and power of nature. Small and pristine, secluded and peaceful, the marvellous Cala Spinosa occupies the northern part of the rugged promontory of Capo Testa, not far from the legendary lighthouse that stands guard over of the Bocche di Bonifacio, four kilometres (along provincial road SP90) from the town of Santa Teresa Gallura, a popular tourist destination.
