Considered the size of the island and the great variety of beauties to be known, a single trip to Sardinia is certainly not enough. It is necessary to split it into stages and do not worry, after the first time, you will always want to come back! 

The island is certainly one of the most loved for its seaside: the beaches of Sardinia are known all over the world and already by the names, they evoke paradisiacal scenarios. Almost 2000 km of coastline where fine sand or pebble beaches, cliffs and hidden coves alternate. But it is not only this, on the island there is much more to liveluxury experiencescultural visitstrekkingextreme sports and of course, enjoying the quality of its gastronomyLet’s try to better understand the geography of the island, thinking of 4 hypothetical itineraries. 

Usually, those who go to Sardinia for the first time, start from the north coast, the best known and equipped with high-level services: here there is no lack of luxury resorts by the sea and the possibility of living exclusive experiences, such as sailing tripsyachtsgolf days. It is the Costa Smeralda, frequented for decades by Italian and international VIPs, especially in the town of Porto Cervo. But here, as throughout the island, the protagonist is nature, offering beautiful beaches. Just go around the islands of Maddalena Archipelago to visit those of Spargi and Budelli and then Capo d’Orso with its pretty coves. From Santa Teresa di Gallura, however, an excursion to Capo Testa and the hippie Moon Valley is not to be missed. 

But that’s not all! Proceeding west, you come across the wilder Costa Paradiso, with the rocky Cala Li Cossi and Li Tinnari. Here you are near Castelsardo, an ancient village perched on the sea, where you can breathe an authentic and timeless atmosphere. From here, proceeding towards Stintino, you come across one of the most beautiful beaches of SardiniaLa Pelosa, in front of which rises Asinara: a unique and authentic National Park, on the island of the ancient prison. 

We now enter the west coast: a different Sardinia, all to be discovered proceeding from north to south. The first stop is Alghero: a city full of charm, witness of the cultural influence of many populations, especially the Spanish. Here, a must is the boat trip to Capo Caccia. Going southwards we come to the historic town of Bosa, dominated by the Castello di Serravalle. The beaches of Is ArenasPutzu Idu and the characteristic rock arch S’Archittu, make this area one of the most interesting of the island. Here the sea is more open and powerful and stretches out in wonderful beaches, like the one of Is Arutas made of small quartz grains. Nearby you can also visit the archaeological site of Tharros, wonderful and a stone’s throw from the sea. 

From here we soon enter the Costa Verde, a unicum in the Italian bathing reality: very high dunes and sandy deserts descend to the sea alternating with the Mediterranean scrub, as in the Piscinas beach. Ideal for those who want to enjoy relaxation, nature and for water sports enthusiasts: very high waves and wind make it a surfing paradise. 

We now arrive at the south coast. Until some time ago perhaps penalized by the beauty of other places, in recent years it has finally been revalued, because it is certainly not for less! This is the coast of the Sardinian capital, Cagliari, a city to be known, of the whitest beaches and the crystal clear waters of VillasimiusPorto GiuncoPula and Chia. Here, there is also the fantastic Archipelago of Sulcis, with the islands of Sant’Antioco and San Pietro, known for the village of Carloforte. 

Closing the circle, we go back up from the east coast. The density of beautiful beaches in Sardinia is perhaps at its best in this area. From the Costa Rei, with its wide white beaches, we go up towards the wild Feraxi, then Su Sirboni, the Bay of Gairo. Places perhaps less known but that are worth seeing once in a lifetime! We arrive in Arbatax, a city with high-level services and excellent resorts for couples or family hotels. 

Here we are in the Gulf of Orosei and prepare to mention enchanting places, among the most famous beaches of SardiniaSanta Maria NavarreseCala MarioluCala GoloritzéCala LunaCala GononeCala Liberotto. Proceeding north, after the fantastic Budoni, we arrive at the coast of San Teodoro, a town known for its nightlife, perfect for young people and music lovers. Here Cala BrandinchiCapo Coda CavalloLa Cinta and Isuledda enchant each year tourists from all over the world. 

All this and much more. Sardinia, as we said at the beginning, offers much more than a classic beach holiday in Italy. Why not, wine tour around the cellars where the excellent Sardinian wines are produced like the Cannonau, a guided tour in the numerous archaeological sites of ancient cultures or a trek in the Barbagia!? We will be back on this issue, but in the meantime, do not hesitate to contact us to organize your beach holiday in Sardinia!
