Where to go on Sardinia
Sardinia is the island that has everything from history to fabulous beaches. With a car, getting around the island is smooth and easy, and there’s a lot to see and do along the way. Below we’ll mention some of our favourite spots.
The fishing village of Stintino, on Sardinia’s northern coast, has one of the most beautiful and famous beaches on the island: La Pelosa. Here you’ll find completely clear water and a beach with white sand. There are also several other beautiful beaches that are perfect for swimming and sunbathing.
On the West coast of Sardinia, you’ll find the cosy town of Bosa, located on a small hill. This town has a long and interesting history. Here you’ll find the ruins of the Malaspina castle as well as many beautiful buildings. Furthermore, the houses in the city are stacked on top of each other and painted in many different colouts, giving the city a very unique look.
The capital of Sardinia is Cagliari and it’s located on the southern part of the island. Here you’ll find almost everything collected in one place: metropolis, shopping, history and beaches. For example, you can visit the preserved ruins of medieval Cagliari, but also see tall modern buildings in the town centre. The city also has an eight-kilometre stretch of beach where you can sunbathe and swim.
