Sardinia

Sip limoncello on beaches of snow-white sand, see hillsides dotted with rainbows of colourful houses and sit down to the freshest seafood you’ve ever sampled.

Overview

Sardinia has been centuries in the making. Waves of ancient cultures have left their mark on its rugged shores, polishing them until they glisten pure white in the bright Mediterranean sun. The result is diverse history and distinctive cuisine in every corner.

The capital, Cagliari, is a buzzing city. Days here are busy, filled with sights like the Roman amphitheatre and nuraghi spotting. You’ll see thousands of these beehive-shaped Bronze Age burial sites scattered across the island – the best one is Su Nuraxi in Barumini.

Cagliari nights are equally vibrant, all late-night street coffees and restaurants alive with conversation, free-flowing wine and plates piled high with seafood. We’re especially fond of the food and drink around the marina.

Set aside some time to visit the ancient city of Nora – you’ll find it in the far south of the island. It has some excellent examples of Carthaginian and Roman ruins. To see all of them, you’ll need to pull on your wetsuit: Nora’s remains continue deep beneath the waves.

Then there are the beaches. Sardinia’s beaches drape around its coast like a string of pearls, they really are that white. Arutas, in the west, is possibly the most beautiful, with warm turquoise waters that lap gently at your feet. Chia in the south is a family-friendly option and not too far away from Cagliari.

When to go

Sardinia is best between May – October.
