You’ll set sail across an emerald sea, surrounded by white sandy coves of various sizes. The island will amaze you with its natural contrasts, colours, and pristine natural surroundings.
The Sardinian coast has nearly 200 km of beaches. There is something for everyone: windy beaches with tall dunes covered in Mediterranean scrub, or more sheltered beaches with calm and crystal-clear waters.
THERE’S MORE TO SARDINIA THAN THE JUST THE BEACH
There are towns and villages to be seen, and parks and hiking trails to explore. The Barbagia, for example, is one of the island’s most pristine regions, and consists of an enormous and picturesque nature area extending around the slopes of the Gennargentu mountain massif at the centre of the island itself.
Among its various wonders, Sardinia offers visitors the opportunity to discover the Nuragic complexes scattered throughout its territory: unique monuments that bear witness to an ancient culture that still remains somewhat mysterious. The island offers a wide range of attractions for visitors, from spectacular beaches akin to the tropics, to archaeological and artistic treasures. The rugged and isolated interior is perfect for more adventurous travellers, who will also find the locals to be warm and extremely hospitable.
THE CUISINE – PLEASING TO EVEN THE MOST REFINED PALATES
The most widely used ingredient is processed wheat, which is used to make carasau bread, and serves as a base for the famous malloreddus, culurgiones and fregola pasta varieties. No visitor can leave the island without taking the opportunity to try the famous porceddu (grilled suckling pig). For those who prefer seafood, there’s Alghero-style lobster, the bottarga di Cabras, and spaghetti with sea urchins. These tasty Sardinian dishes are best accompanied by high quality local wines, like Vermentino di Gallura or Cannonau. The myrtle liqueur is also exceptional.
