Conca Verde is a residential hamlet peacefully located on the north east coast of Sardinia, with a delightful sandy cove, crystal clear water and awe-inspiring views across the Archipelago of La Maddalena.
Conca Verde is just 12km away from Santa Teresa di Gallura – a small town, rated as one of the most attractive on the island due to its breathtaking views over the Straits of Bonifacio as well as the surrounding stretches of beautiful sand.
South of Conca Verde lies Palau – a lively town with a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants as well as boat trip opportunities to the islands of La Maddalena.
Cala Capra beach just beyond Golfo delle Saline is a pretty sandy bay tucked beneath the impressive Capo D’Orso headland with its distinctive bear shaped weathered rock.
On the outskirts of Santa Teresa, Rena Bianca is a beautiful stretch of beach with stunning views of the straits of Bonifacio over the transparent turquoise sea. In the summer months the beach can get very popular particularly with locals. There are also sun loungers and parasols to hire.
Tanca Manna sits approximately 250 metres from the road behind a saltwater lake. It has a great stretch of sand and plenty of facilities for families. A kilometre beyond Tanca Manna is Barca Bruciata, a small sandy beach which is quiet with no facilities.

THINGS TO SEE & DO
La Maddalena Islands
Spend a day cruising around and swimming from these stunning islands - a favourite with those seeking tranquillity, natural beauty and unspoilt surroundings.
Take the ferry from Santa Teresa Gallura across to the neighbouring island of Corsica and visit the fortress town of Bonifacio.
Discover the exquisite coastline from the sea and enjoy the excellent conditions of the north east coast for wind-surfing, sailing, diving, snorkelling, etc.
Prehistoric Sites at Arzachena
Visit the prehistoric remains including the Albucciu Nuraghe – a bronze age tower, the Tomba dei Giganti Coddu Vecchiu and the Li Muri Necropolis, scattered around the town.
An up-market town and centre of indulgence, it is located around two yacht harbours on the north side of this dazzling stretch of coastline, and being the main resort of the area and a paradise for the jet-set, it’s definitely worth a visit.
Explore by car or on foot the dramatic mountains of the interior, the rugged countryside and the small character towns and villages. Alternatively, leave your car in Palau and take the stream train to Tempio Pausania, a spectacular journey across the Galluran countryside.
Sample traditional Sardinian cuisine in a farm restaurant. Amongst others, we recommend the Agriturismi Tenuta Pilastru, la Sasima or la Somara, all located near Arzachena.
