Destination Guide: Sardinia
The second-largest island in the Mediterranean, Sardinia offers a peaceful holiday experience but with lots to do for everyone.
With more than a thousand miles of coastline, from sandy beaches, to pretty coves and inlets, to white undulating cliffs, there is so much here for lovers of sun, sand and sea. You’ll be spoilt for choice for nice beaches but some of the best are: Rena Bianca with its sparkling white sand and Piccolo Pevero in Porto Cervo; Poetto Beach, just south of Cagliari, with its beach flamingos in the lagoon nearby; Ira Beach and Blue Beach in Porto Rotondo; and – at the opposite end of the scale – the natural, wild and often-deserted beaches of the Costa Verde.
There are also two fabulous beach clubs – Il Reef Beach and Restaurant, which has a wide balneary and relaxation area as well as gourmet restaurant and bar, and then the Cala di Volpe Hotel, which also has its own private beach and top-class restaurants.
Sardinia is teeming with history, both ancient and modern. Make a day trip to Arzachena, to explore the island’s fascinating Nuragic civilisation, its ‘Giants’ Tombs’ and the nuraghi themselves, the island’s mysterious stone dwellings found dotted all over the prehistoric villages. Or visit the pretty medieval city of Oristano and nearby ancient ruins of Tharros. Olbia also has plenty to see – from the Pisan-style church of San Simplicio to its wonderful Museo Archeologico, where you can lose yourself for hours in the island’s fascinating past.
Inland, rugged landscapes make for great hiking and opportunities to immerse yourself in nature, while over on the Costa Smerelda, playground of the super-rich, you can happily sit and celeb-watch all afternoon over drinks.
Sardinia’s main airport is at Cagliari. There are also two smaller airports at Alghero and Olbia.
Best places to eat and drink in Sardinia
Food fans will find plenty to indulge in here, from tender pork and other slow-cooked meats, to crisp flat breads, fresh seafood, fragrant herbs, wonderful cheeses and full-bodied wines. There’s a good mix of restaurants from the high-end to the very reasonable and local but the lovely thing about Sardinia is that even an average trattoria is often a fabulous experience here.
Gianni Pedrinelli offers a wonderful meal in a beautiful indoor-outdoor setting. Or for something a little different, tuck into Brazilian cuisine at Aruana – both are in Porto Cervo.
Elegant but understated and great for seafood is Da Giovannino in Porto Rotondo.
When lobster is in season, La Lepanto, which specialises in lobster done every way you can imagine, is well worth a visit
If you’re in Cagliari try Su Cumbidu in the old town hall, where the suckling pig is an experience you’ll never forget.
Finally, a trip to San Benedetto market is a must while you’re here to sample and buy fresh breads, seafoods, fresh pasta and a hundred other local specialities in a bustling, convivial atmosphere.
Best time to visit Sardinia
August can be incredibly busy with most of Italy seeming to descend upon the island to enjoy the festivals, and it’s hot, too, but otherwise there’s something to enjoy here at almost any time of year. January through to March can be wet and a little chilly but from April to October the weather is generally good.
If you visit in late May, you might see the Cavalcata Sarda, a folk festival that has been running in Sassari for more than a century, with people coming together from all over the island in traditional dress to parade on foot and on horseback.
What we love about Sardinia
We love visiting the Parco Arcipelago di Maddelena, a geomarine national park where you can see hundreds of rare plants as well as watch dolphins play.
