Sardinia

Sardinia holidays

Nowhere defines la bella vita quite like this Mediterranean gem. A dreamy island escape with a distinct Italian feel, Sardinia is beach heaven. Snow-white sand sloping into glimmering turquoise waters is its signature style. Go north to the Costa Smeralda for a glamorous seaside experience or stick to the area south of Olbia if you prefer a holiday with an authentic slant. When you’re not exploring the coast, take your taste buds on a culinary adventure. Sardinia’s charm is mirrored in its cooking, so expect a warm welcome at the island’s agriturismos (traditional farms) and family-run trattorias. 

Baia Sardinia

Just north of the famous Costa Smeralda, Baia Sardinia takes a more relaxed approach to life than its glitzier neighbours.

Budoni

Snuggled on the northeast of Sardinia, Budoni’s a seaside stunner with an authentic vibe.

Cannigione

Spread along an inlet on the north coast, Cannigione is a charming spot where you can experience authentic Sardinia.

Golfo Aranci

Set along the northern tip of the Golfo di Olbia, this swish port town is a picturesque part of the island.

Orosei

Charming Orosei’s a dinky east-coast gem, set inland just a few kilometres from the water. It’s something of an under-the-radar resort, with a breathtaking Spanish-style historic centre.

Pittulongu

After a chilled-out getaway? Take a look at the dinky village of Pittulongu, just down the coast from Olbia.

Life’s a beach

You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to Sardinia’s beaches. There are hundreds of them, taking on various guises. Hidden coves, sweeping bays, enormous dunes, flamingo-dotted lagoons – it’s got the lot. Many are wild, unspoilt numbers where you can pitch up for the day, others come with canopied sunbeds and glitzy beach clubs. To tick off as many as you can, make use of the island’s water taxis and go cove hopping.

Foodie paradise  

Italy’s outstanding reputation for food and drink isn’t just saved for the mainland – Sardinia’s cuisine is just as superb. Whether you’re dining on a sea view terrace or vine-wrapped veranda, expect to tuck into island classics like roast suckling pig and seafood pasta, paired with vermentino, a homegrown aromatic white wine. After something light? Look out for woodfired bread topped with tangy pecorino cheese.

All about the outdoors 

Tear yourself away from the beach for a moment and you’ll find this island’s blessed with more epic natural beauty. Sardinia counts dramatic canyons, captivating caves, rocky outcrops and secret islands among its prized sights. The breathtaking La Maddalena Archipelago National Park is a must for snorkelling, while Baia Sardinia’s the place for water sports fans. Love hiking? Boulder-strewn Capo Testa promises swoonworthy sea views.

Beaches

Showstopping, sandy, serene – it’s hard to do Sardinia’s spectacular beaches justice. If you’re craving a piece of paradise just a few hours from the UK, this is where you’ll find it. Each one flaunts the island’s naturally beautiful features (soft white sands and cobalt-blue waters) but vary from secret coves and teeny patches to dreamy bays and mile-long sweeps.
