Sardinia

About Sardinia Resorts Our Staff Picks for Package Holidays
Sardinian legend has it that, when God had finished creating the earth, he gathered all the leftover pieces, threw them into the sea and stepped on them to make Sardinia or, as the Greeks called it Ichnusa, meaning ˜'footprint'.

Whether you like to believe this island bears the mark of a heavenly footprint, it is certainly blessed by a shimmering coastline of jaw-dropping beauty that has attracted visitors from ancient times right up to today. Long stretches of this rocky coastline and low hills give way to sandy beaches, headlands and crystal clear lakes, while shaded forests offer shelter from the Mediterranean sun.

One of the largest islands in the Mediterranean, second only to Sicily, Sardinia is a fantastic destination for a relaxing summer holiday. Its 1800km of gorgeous coastline is dotted with beautiful beaches, secluded coves and dramatic cliffs.

Enjoying a warm, balmy climate with an average of 135 days of sunshine a year, the island has lots of lovely towns and villages to explore. The most popular of these– and many would say, also the most attractive – Alghero is a picturesque resort set in the lush landscape of the Alghero-Fertilia Peninsula on the north-western corner of the island.

Sardinia has a rich cultural heritage, including a strong native music tradition that has inspired the likes of rock legends Frank Zappa and Peter Gabriel, as well as opera houses in Cagliari and the second city, Sassari.

In terms of food, the traditional Sardinian cuisine emphasises meat, dairy products, grains and vegetables, while its island status is reflected by the popularity of lobster, scampi, squid, tuna and other seafood on local menus.

Recommended Excursions

The Grotto of Neptune
Known locally as Grotto di Nettuno, this is one of the most popular excursions from Alghero. This spectacular series of sea caves below the Capo Caccia headland can be reached either by sea or by descending 656 steps. Close by is the beautiful Foradada island.
Sassari
Sassari is the second largest city on the island and has lots to see, including St. Nicholas Church, Palazzo Ducale, Piazza Italia and the Rossello Fountain.
The Emerald Coast
A 10km stretch of coast along the north-east of the island is an exclusive area favoured by the jetset. You may spot a celebrity or two as you sip coffee in one of its bars or admire its glittering yacht marina.
Garibaldi House
On a day trip to the island of Caprera you can visit the house of the fascinating revolutionary Giuseppe Garibaldi, which remains exactly as he left it.
Corsica
While in Sardinia, why not visit the French island of Corsica, a scenic bus and short ferry ride away? Excursions may be booked locally. Ask at your hotel reception for further details.
