Great Places to Visit
Sophisticated and diverse, Sardinia is popular with holidaymakers who want to enjoy peace, tranquillity and excursions as part of their Med break.
Check Out the Giants Tombs
About 20 miles north of Olbia is Arzachena, where prehistoric monuments including ‘giants tombs’ and nuraghe (excellent examples of Sardinian ancient towers) await. These megalithic and archaeological wonders are great if you’re a history buff and wish to delve into the island’s Nuragic civilisation and Arzachena culture.
Nip Across to the Maddalena Archipelago
A UNESCO-listed archipelago just off the Costa Smeralda, the Maddalena islands are an idyllic spot if you’re a sea-lover, with crystal clear waters offering diving, snorkelling and swimming opportunities galore. Enjoy a boat trip to these remote and unspoilt islands, and discover secluded coves and hidden bays for the day.
Head Underground in Alghero
If you’d prefer to delve a little deeper than Sardinia’s scenic surface, head to Alghero, where the Grotta di Nettuno will welcome you with an array of stunning rock and cave formations, discreetly illuminated so that visitors can see every crevice. Take a boat ride through the cave and marvel at how beautiful geology can be.
As the island’s capital city, Cagliari is a must-see if you want to appreciate as much of Sardinia’s culture as you can. The Sunday flea market is a popular attraction, while the modern atmosphere and traditional architecture complement its medieval centre, providing you with plenty to see and enjoy during your visit.
