It’s important to organize your trip to Sardinia carefully so you don’t miss anything about this ancient island. To plan a trip, we must first consider the time of year (if you don’t like crowded locations very much, avoid August), the destination, what to expect, and the must-do activities.

Popular tourist sites for holiday in Sardinia include –

  • Cagliari
  • Alghero
  • Olbia
  • Bosa
  • Coast of Smeralda
  • Teodoro
  • Villasimius
  • The Cala Gonone
  • Stintino
  • Baunei
  • Orgosolo

These spots are undoubtedly among the most visited, but there are also many more places to visit that are ideal for those who enjoy the outdoors, the sea, the mountains, or old-fashioned towns.

5 Things You Should Know Before Vacationing In Sardinia

  1. The Sea And Beaches.

There is no denying the Sardinian Sea’s beauty. There are beaches in the Caribbean with remarkably clear water.

There is at least 1850 km of (jagged) coastline with terrain variations from east to west and north to south. A prime example of this northeast holiday is the granite coastline of Gallura, among the most stunning sites on earth. The waves and wind have sculpted granite boulders into some of the strangest-looking sculptures.

The distinctive limestone cliffs of Ogliastra are home to the well-known sea ox cave.

The coastline geologically softens in the central-western region around Oristano, where one may see huge inlets, vast swaths of dunes, and a sea characterized by the wind and many hues of blue.

  1. The Nature 

This country is fortunate to have mostly escaped human anthropogenization by preserving pristine and unaltered natural settings. Geographically, Sardinia is a mostly hilly region devoid of significant mountain ranges. Nevertheless, there are some massive massifs, with the Gennargentu in the Nuoro province having the highest peak at 1834 meters. Kilometers of untouched wilderness, including woodlands, forests, waterfalls, and natural parks, where you may unwind and replenish your batteries.

Three recognized national parks, totaling over 25,000 hectares, are well worth visiting.

  • The Asinara Island Park;
  • The National Parks of the Gulf of Orosei and Gennargentu

Don’t miss the tour of the islands in the La Maddalena Archipelago at the Maddalena Archipelago Park.

  1. Departure For Sardinia

The links by air and water make traveling to Sardinia quite simple. If you plan to visit Sardinia during the warmest months of July and August, buy your tickets well in advance because airline and boat prices skyrocket.

Olbia-Costa Smeralda, Alghero-Fertilia, and Cagliari-Elmas are the three airports on the island.

Olbia, Porto Torres, and Golfo Aranci are home to the major ports. The ports of Arbatax in the province of Nuoro and Cagliari in the south.

  1. Local Transportation

The entire region is served by regional buses run by the ARST Corporation. Every rural Sardinian community has a bus bearing the ARST logo. However, it is not suggested only to utilize public transportation because the lines are infrequent and frequently have no connecting connections. Visit our page on bus links for additional details about local transportation.

Having a car is the best method to go to Sardinia. The best method to go around on the island is by automobile, whether you bring your own or hire one locally.

Car renting should be done well, ideally many months in advance, to take advantage of good rates. The fees rise more rapidly the closer you are to your departure date.

Sardinia still has to make many improvements in train connections, but new trains are on the way, and an upgrade to the railway line is imminent. You may still take the railway to go along the Olbia-Sassari, Cagliari-Oristano, or Cagliari-Olbia lines.

  1. Arriving In San Diego

Booking amazing lodging for your vacation in Sardinia won’t be difficult. There is a wide variety of visitor accommodations, including hotels, resorts, bed and breakfasts, agritourism, vacation rentals, hostels, campsites, houses, and campervan parking lots.

It’s fairly simple to find lodging that meets your demands, and rates cater to all price ranges. They range from Costa Smeralda’s ultra-luxurious hotels to the more reasonably priced B&Bs, apartments, and hostels.

Due to extremely strong demand in July and August, the availability is considerably decreased. To secure the greatest deals, at the very least, you must make your reservations in March and April if you intend to visit Sardinia in August.
