Beautiful Sardinia

With pristine beaches, turquoise water, colourful reefs, wild countryside and medieval towns, Sardinia - the second largest Island in the Mediterranean - pretty much has it all.


Inhabitants on the Island can be traced back as far as 6000 BC, while around 7,000 nuraghi – round tower fortresses built by tribes around 1500 BC – can still be seen today.

But apart from ancient monuments and other man-made architecture stretching from ancient times via the Romans to modern day, Sardina’s natural beauty also makes it an ideal destination.

It has a plethora of sandy beaches to relax on, underwater caves and grottoes suitable for scuba diving as well as a thriving sailing industry.

Inland for those who like to get active the wild countryside offers hikers of all levels opportunities to stretch their legs.

While not the highest in the world Sadrinia also has plenty of steep mountains criss-crossing the Island from the Monte Limbara Range in the Northeast to the Iglesiente area in the Southwest. Caves and vertical limestone cliffs are also prevalent for the more adventurous.

This is before I even get to the food which, like much of Italy, is taken very seriously.
Outside of the most touristy of areas food will not be served until 7pm, with evening meals an all-night activity and one to be savoured. Fish features prominently on the menu as well as the Island’s rich source of organic fruit and vegetables. Watch out for Cannonau – a very strong red wine!

Accommodation – which can be booked through Booking.com – is varied according to budget but all of high quality. Check out the ‘agriturismo' accommodation on farms and other rural houses. It will be a trip you won’t forget.
