Just off Italy’s west coast, Sardinia is a haven for sun-and-sand lovers. The island’s Mediterranean legacy – limestone towns, neolithic artefacts and hearty cuisine – ensures there’s a lot more to explore beyond glitzy Costa Smeralda’s picturesque coves.

When to go

Summers tend to be sizzling, so those sensitive to heat should opt for balmy Spring or still-warm Autumn, which both have the added benefit of fewer crowds.

Food & Drink

With North African and Italian influences, the island’s cuisine is unlike its Italian sisters. Suckling pig is a favourite here, as are fragrant couscous dishes and tasty cheeses. Our Sardinian favourites include Al Tuguri for good, simple local dishes made using Sardinian herbs. For something a little more elegant, try Dal Corsaro for standout Sardinian cuisine in a refined setting.

Not to miss

Wonder at the magnificent stalactites and intricate rock formations in Grotta di Nettuno: Sardinia’s awe-inspiring underground caves.

Nightlife

Sardinia’s evening scene is all glitz and glamour, with plenty of ritzy clubs and swanky bars in which to while away an evening. People watch in Porto Cervo while sipping on a fruity cocktail from lively hub, Il Portico. Alternatively, try the Caffè Libarium Nostrum, where you can enjoy incredible city views with a glass of wine.

Where to stay in Sardinia

For secluded coves, crystalline waters and rugged bays, stay along Sardinia’s north coast. Alternatively, bunk near Foresta di Montes for plunging valleys, lush mountainsides and glittering rock pools.

How to get there

Sardinia’s main airports are Olbia, Alghero and Cagliari, which serve flight to domestic and European destinations.
