Spiaggia Zia Culumba
Just steps in front of the small village of Capo Testa you’ll find Zia Culumba (Spiaggia Zia Culumba). An almost supernatural appearance accompanies this beautiful beach which is also known as Tibula Beach. Named after the Roman colony which settled in the area for granite extraction, it’s amazing to think this stretch of shoreline was also the origin of the material used to construct the Pantheon in Rome. For a similar reason, Tibula is also called Beach of Granite after the beautiful granite formations that surround the beach. Spiaggia Zia Culumba is one of the finest beaches in Capo Testa and next to the village in Santa Reparata Bay to the north of Sardinia.
