Costa Smeralda & Sardinia's Best Beach
My husband rewarded me for having put up with him for the past ten years with a seven night stay at the deluxe and ever so luxurious Capo D'Orso Hotel and Spa in Palau on the Costa Smeralda.
We flew into Olbia and half an hour later we entered another world, a haven indeed.
To all of you still seeking paradise you can stop looking... I have found it. The Maddalena archipelago is that paradise and from the hotel's own little harbour boats leave to discover the best beaches of the Maddalena islands.
Hubby was happy as can be on the golf course overlooking the sea and I let him go golf to his hearts content while I took off ten years in the beauty spa.
You actually don't need to go anywhere except on the boat to the island because the hotel has everything you need including the spa, beach, lovely park areas around the hotel, golf course and three restaurants, two of which were very good and the pizza served at the outside restaurant was awesome.
This was my first ever trip to Sardinia and I have gotten my husband to agree that next year we are definitely going back again. To tell the truth it was very easy to twist his arm - he now loves the place as much as I do.
We intend to adventure further afield discovering more of those best beaches in Sardinia
you wrote about down the East Coast.
It's going to need a longer holiday because I am definitely going to be back at the Capo D'Orso Hotel
for a another week too. Andrew's reply:
The trouble with Sardinia is that once you visit you tend to get addicted and keep needing to come back! Not a bad addiction to have in my opinion but it can become quite expensive.
I know the hotel you stayed at, it is a very good one and rated as one of the most romantic hotels in Sardinia.
One last thing, please do feel free to ask if you need any tips or advice before your next trip, I am always really very happy to help. I'm sure you will find the beaches around Cala Gonone even more beautiful than those beaches you visited on the Costa Smeralda.
