With a hotel in Sardinia you can chill on dreamy white-sand beaches, explore old-fashioned fishing villages and trek along scenic trails on this sunny Mediterranean island.
The Italian island of Sardinia is an enchanting place to book a hotel in, away from the hustle and bustle of life on the mainland. Explore the sparkling blue waters with a bit of snorkelling, zip about on a Vespa around narrow village streets and feast on freshly caught seafood on sunny waterside restaurant terraces.
Sardinia’s fascinating history dates back to Roman times and you can still find ruins from the empire dotted around the island. Prepare to be amazed by medieval buildings and Gothic cathedrals in the capital city of Cagliari. Trek on up to Il Castello, a walled hilltop fortress overlooking the Gulf of Cagliari and view the Basilica of Our Lady of Bonaria, which contains a treasured local icon of the Virgin Mary.
Discover the history of Catalan in the seaside city of Alghero. Alghero was founded by Catalan conquerors, which explains why a Catalan dialect prevails here. In the Costa Smeralda area, marvel at luxury yachts and expensive real estate occupied by celebrities and global business leaders. Dance all night at an exclusive club in Olbia, one of Costa Smeralda’s most popular towns for nightlife. South of Olbia is San Teodoro, known for its beautiful beach and lagoon where pink flamingos gather. There’s so much to do when you book a hotel in Alghero.
Spot wildlife in the Gola Su Gorropu gorge, where rugged limestone landscapes are crisscrossed by hiking trails. Look for golden eagles soaring above the ravines. To visit the mountains of the Gennargentu, head to the Parco Nazionale del Golfo di Orosei del Gennargentu, Sardinia’s largest national park.
The Sardinian coast is fringed with white-sand beaches. Among the best swimming spots is Santa Teresa di Gallura, which features clear, shallow waters and fine pale sand. Head to the dunes of Spiaggia di Piscinas on Sardinia’s wild coast for remote hiking trails.
Start your holiday by flying into Cagliari, Costa Smeralda or Alghero. Seasonal flights serve departure cities across Europe, while more frequent flights operate between mainland Italy and Sardinia. Hire a car to reach remote areas or stick to the major cities and towns, which are served by buses and walking paths.
With a hotel in Sardinia you get an enticing mix of natural beauty, sun-dappled beaches and historic ruins.
