Holidays in Sardinia are a unique experience. Because this exquisite island off southern Italy is a complete one-off: a magical mixture of culture, beaches and scenery that beguiles every visitor.
From white sand beaches and turquoise-and-emerald seas to charismatic towns, forested valleys and storybook harbours, one of the beauties of holidays in Sardinia is the sheer variety they offer. Layered on top is a kaleidoscope of cultural and culinary delights. Occupied by the Romans, Genoans and Catalonians in turn, Sardinia's main towns are sprinkled with Italian, Spanish and Baroque treasures. The same variety characterises the food, with trattoria menus bulging with everything from fish and seafood to home-made pizzas, mouth-watering pastries and fruity wines.
So where to stay? For seaside chic, the glamorous resorts of the Costa Smeralda region, like Porto Cervo and Porto Rafael, are ideal. For sightseeing and sands combined, cosmopolitan Alghero obliges with medieval walls, atmospheric streets and nearby beaches. Then there's the rural charm of the artisans' town of Oliena nestled beneath soaring mountains. And if you want Sardinia holidays to be all about the beach, the watersports and sands of Baia de Sardinia and Cannigione are heaven sent.
