One word: beaches. As the second largest island in the Mediterranean, Sardinia is surrounded by gorgeous blue waters and sandy-white beaches. And since Sardinian towns are often further inland, many beaches have been left unspoilt and are perfect for sunbathing or scuba diving in amazing underwater caves.

Port of Call

The One Thing You Don't Want to Miss

Cagliari is one of the island's liveliest cities, and it just so happens to be your port of call. This city offers the best of everything: colourful festivals, architectural wonders, historic monuments, tranquil lagoons and one of the longest beaches in the Mediterranean.

Other Fun Things to Do

  • There are more than 700 mysterious cone-shaped buildings dotting the Sardinian countryside. Called 'nuraghi', these monuments are a memorable part of the island's landscape and culture.
  • Ghost towns in Italy? Of course! From ancient times to around 1960 the southwest coast of Sardinia was used for mining. Now called 'the silent coast', this area features deserted villages and peaceful sand dunes.
  • Although winemaking has been a part of Sardinian culture for millennia, only recently have these wines gained popularity outside Italy. Sardinia's wine country is not only beautiful, it offers an array of distinct reds and whites.

A landscape of exceptional beaches, rocky cliffs and numerous underwater caves makes Sardinia perfect for rock climbing, snorkelling, scuba diving and more.
