    The sea, the people, the land and history and the climate all make Sardinia alluring to travelers from D.H. Lawrence to Madona. This large island was occupied by the Phoenicians, Romans, Catalans,
    and it's own indigenous iron-age cultures. You can kayak, sail, surf, hike, cycle, and motor around the island. It offers quiet lagoons, urban cultural centers.

    I spent my honeymoon in Sardinia..and it is the perfect place for that and then some! Really what a fascinating place. History buffs will revel in the battles that have been fought by this island of independantists...inland you will see graffiti from the revolutionaries from the 1980s. There is an on going battle between Corsica and Sardinia.

    Great food. Super hiking. Beautiful beaches. Crystle blue water. Fantastic for sailing.

    Stick with either the northwest - Porto Cervo/Costa Smerlada region or head down south to Cagliari or Carbonia. Avoid Alghero - it's "budget" in the bad sense of the word.

    Costa Smeralda is insanely expensive and totally over the top. The Aga Kahn funded the development of this area several decades ago and since then the super yachts have found their home here. It's definitely worth splurging to experience this scene if you have the spare cash.

    I went to Sardinia during the off-season and at first it was rather annoying searching for restaurants and activities to do. After a day, I realized it was a treat to be on the island without tons of tourists. The Sardinian coastline is amazing, but don't be afraid to venture off into the countryside. I never knew which way to turn my head as every angle was breathtaking. I'd advise you to rent a car for a few days to get to the more remote scenic spots on the island. There are an endless amount of coves, caves, beaches and colorful towns. I loved it!

    Surrounded by pristine waters, Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean and is a region of Italy. The island is breathtakingly beautiful, offers kaleidoscopic sights and its Costa Smeralda, once a favourite of the late Lady Di, is a top holiday location for celebrities.
    Top things to do:
    Visit the capital, Cagliari. It has inspired many writers and displays a rare, unusual beauty.
    A trip to The Parco Nazionale dell’Arcipelago della Maddalena, archipelago of stunning island, is a must.
    If you enjoy horse riding, you will love the organised treks in San Teodoro. The tour takes you around the lagoons and you can also see dolphins playing.
    Go sailing on the Costa Smeralda.The windy beaches of Porto Pollo are perfect for surfing enthusiasts .

    Sardinia has maybe the best sea in Italy. there are many beaches all along its coasts which are really gorgeous... a kind of Caribbean sea with Mediterranean vegetation. Typical ancient constructions are " nuraghi". food is very rich and tasty, from cheese, to meat (porceddu), pasta and fish. There is also a wide choice of local wines.

    Sardegna captured my heart! We stayed in Golfo di Orosei, which was nice and quiet, with a few beaches to explore and a variety of restaurants. We had a car, but really spent more time on the little inflatable motorboat that we rented from the port! We explored caves and inlets, went snorkeling and gawked at all the rock climbers on seemingly impossible cliff faces towering over the crystal clear water below.... it's impossibly beautiful. I also had amazing food and wine, and enjoyed exploring the local culture which is much different than the rest of Italy.

    Sigh. I know people love Sardinia. I'm also fascinated by ancient history, and Sardinia is filled with 'nuraghi,' these 3000-year-old stone structures.

    However, I have to admit: I don't love Sardinia. It's so different culturally from the rest of Italy (it had an entirely different language until recently). I was there in the off-season so I'm sure that had something to do with it, as people do say they love the beaches and island weather, but I would choose Sicily over Sardinia for an Italian island experience any day.

Description

One of Italy's five semi-autonomous regions (along with Sicily and the far northern regions), Sardinia is a wholly separate culture with a unique cuisine, language and customs. You won't find the typical architecture or history that defines so much of the rest of Italy, but you will find a stark landscape, crystal clear ice-blue water, white sandy beaches and a mysterious ancient history that ... read more
creates an almost mythic backdrop. The language itself is a historical relic of the island's past, as Etruscan, Latin, Basque and even a few Phoenician words have influenced the Sardu language. The second largest island in the Mediterranean, Sardinia has over 7,000 nuraghi (pre-historic Sardinian stone buildings) on the island, many in fields open to passersby. The coastline, however, is what brings in the most visitors. In the Costa Smeralda, you could be forgiven for thinking you were in the Caribbean, with miles of golden sand dunes and aquamarine bays.
