Located on the splendid southern coast, Teulada in Sardinia is famous for its fabulous beaches (such as Tuerredda and Portu Tramatzu) and its crystal clear waters. Surrounded by a landscape that is still wild and unpolluted, it is filled with scenery that constantly astounds and amazes. The coast is an alternation of long sandy beaches and rugged, jagged coastlines that are characterized by the splendid Capo Malfatano that extends along a good portion of the coast up to Capo Teulada, the most extreme point. Teulada offers its visitors evocative panoramas even at a high altitude: the forest of Gutturu Mannu (pleasant excursions can be arranged) and Mount Punta Sebera. The mountainous area is dotted with many suggestive caverns that can be visited when accompanied by an expert tour guide from the Teulada Speleology Club.

The tourist port can host up to 133 watercrafts that can measure up to 30 metres in length. The small ports of Budello (with its typical fishing boats) and Capo Malfatano are very picturesque.

Traditions are genuinely respected: handcrafts range from textiles (tapestries and rugs) to works made from cork, leather and ceramic.

People actively participate in religious festivals here. Saint John the Baptist is celebrated in late June with a ritual called is goppais e is gommais de froris (the ladies and gentlemen of the flowers) followed by the lighting of the bonfire. The patron saint – Our Lady of Mount Carmel – is honoured in August and Saint Isidore, the patron saint of farmers, is honoured in August. The town festival dedicated to bread and cheese is also celebrated in August. The older ladies are dressed in traditional costumes and knead the dough for the bread that is later baked in wood ovens and offered to the tourists.

Another event that has become known on an international level is the "Sculpture and Stone" meet that hosts artists from all over the world.
