The area and getting around
Sardinia is an Italian island located in the Tyrrhenian Sea off Italy’s west coast. There are frequent flights into the airport at Sardinia’s capital, Cagliari, which is only four miles from the city centre. The slower paced option is a ferry from Naples which takes around 14 hours. Once you’re there, the sky’s the limit in terms of your options. Adventure sports inland, sunbathing on the 2,000 (!) kilometres of beaches, city shopping, or just hanging around the pool under the sun – the choices are infinite! Don’t miss Porto Cervo in the north east for the most upmarket and fancy shopping outlets, or the antiques market in Bastioni di San Remy, only on Sundays.Exciting adventures await you!
Sardinia has something for every adventure seeker. The mountainous inland region is overlaid with hiking routes for all experience levels, and Biking Sardinia in the north west will provide you with everything you need for a mountain bike tour. But if your idea of an exciting time is a fabulous and beautiful beach, you’ll adore Cala Luna on the east coast, a secluded beach with – if you want to – caves to explore – or soft sand to snooze on if that’s more your thing!
Travellers and activities
Sardinia is famous for its crafts, not least its woven fabrics. Artisan Maurizio Savoldo, based right in Sardinia’s centre, hand dyes fabrics using traditional techniques to create one of a kind scarves and home furnishings. Basket weaving – done by both men and women – is a strong cultural link to the old times in Sardinia. Local plant materials provide the supplies for these attractive and practical products. Using a rather less common material, filigree gold jewellery is also a skill that is dear to the Sardinians. Combining the expertise of basket weaving with the deftness of the jeweller, fine pieces of wearable art are created, ready for you to love and to buy.Sardinia for beach lovers
Sardinia’s coastline is extensive and beautiful. From tiny, private coves to wide, well serviced beaches there is something to suit everyone’s needs. Particular delights include Cala Mariolu to the east, home to some of the best snorkelling in Sardinia, and Spiaggia di Liscia Ruja, where the finest soft, blonde sand on the island is to be found, together with exceptional restaurants and the most gorgeous, clear blue sea. For cosy, private beaches you can’t do better than the truly lovely Quinta Spiaggia on the north east coast – Small and perfectly formed!
Sardinia has its very own protected language, Sardo. But bring your Italian phrasebook as it is widely spoken!
