Sardinia Hotels & Holidays
With an abundance of stunning white sand beaches and some of the clearest waters of the Mediterranean, Sardinia holidays are perfect if you're looking for a calm and relaxing break.
Its mountainous interior gives a wealth of opportunities for finding stunning vistas and secluded corners and the unhurried pace and peaceful landscape of this beautiful island will refresh the body and soul.
Southern Sardinia features long expanses of perfect sandy beaches and probably the most translucent turquoise sea you will find anywhere in Europe. The southern coast of this wonderful island provides an ideal environment for the ultimate beach holiday on Sardinia.
Santa Margherita di Pula
On the southern tip of Sardinia, Santa Margherita di Pula has a superb sandy beach and is close to the city of Cagliari, ablaze with cafés, restaurants, shops and the interesting old quarter 'Castello'.
Chia, one of Sardinia's most scenic and uncluttered coastlines, where rocky promontories separate reclusive sandy coves. A 16th century campanile stands guard over the Punic settlement of Bithia.
Founded during the 8th and 9th century BC, Nora houses the remains of Punic and Phoenician sanctuaries, a magnificent Roman villa, amphitheatre and stately forum.
Sardinia's sophisticated northern shores, such as the Costa Smeralda and Baia Sardinia, are interspersed with near-deserted sandy coves and rocky inlets. This stunning stretch of coastline contrasts with the remote, rugged landscape inland, where the beauty is of a wilder nature.
Costa Smeralda, Porto Cervo
Stretching for 30 pristine miles across the island's north east corner, Costa Smeralda has idyllic sandy beaches. Cervo boasts a luxury yacht club and marina complex and stylish boutiques.
Baia Sardinia, a small village set in a beautiful little bay with fine sand and clear water. Here, life centres around the beach and the piazza where there are a few small shops, bars and restaurants.
For those avid to discover a characteristic Sardinian town, Oliena is a perfect example, set in the Cedrine valley at the foot of Monte Corrasi. Shaded streets are lined by whitewashed houses with painterly courtyards, reposing in a languid atmosphere neighboured by gnarled olive groves, terraced vineyards and scented almond trees.
A laid back resort close to Costa Smeralda and approximately 30km northwest of the dynamic city of Olbia. Palau is the main gateway to Isola della Maddalena, the main island of an archipelago of seven islands and numerous other small islets. Isola della Maddalena shares the same crystal clear waters and wind blown granite coastline as Palau and is a haven for wildlife with a designated National Park.
Santa Teresa Gallura
Situated in the Northern tip of the island with views across to the coast of Corsica, Santa Teresa is an unspoilt old town with vernacular architecture and has a prosperous feel with its delis and shops. Santa Teresa boasts some of Sardinia's most beautiful beaches, coves and creeks including the surreal, wind sculpted granite rock-formations of the nearby Capo Testa.

Lying 120 miles west of mainland Italy, Sardinia is an island which provides the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Beach lovers will be enticed by the sun, sea and sand, but there is much more to this island than the beach. Wander leisurely around historic towns such as the capital Cagliari or take a trip to the rugged peaks of the interior which form a wild rural landscape ripe for exploring off the beaten track. The island also has a glamorous side the Costa Smeralda, or Emerald Coast is a magnet for the international jet set. Here the streets are lined with shops bearing designer names, buzzing nightclubs and stylish restaurants. Sardinia's mix of glitz, glamour and relaxation makes a perfect Italian island getaway.More Information Less Information
