The town's beach is just outside the centre in the direction of Porto Raphael, where you will find an exclusive and urban environment. In Palau municipality will find Capo d'Orso, which is a rock that has been shaped by the wind into a bear-shaped sculpture. It's quite commonly photographed for publicity material for Sardinia. It is worthwhile here to make an excursion to Santa Teresa di Gallura and a trip across the sea to Bonifacio in Corsica. In the hills behind the coast you can run or bike many miles without encountering a town and will find a particularly beautiful landscape in the Valle della Luna (Moon Valley).
