Cannigione is a pretty beach resort, situated on Sardinia’s northern tip. With an atmospheric town centre and a prime location close to many of the island’s top beaches, this classic seaside resort is a great choice for a Sardinian escape.
Many prefer the laid-back charms of Cannigione over other nearby towns, plus the location provides easy access around the island, as well as to the beautiful Maddalena Archipelago. We highly recommend joining a boat tour around this picturesque chain of islands in order to see the best of Sardinia’s natural beauty. Back in the town, you'll find the sun-drenched harbour and pier area – a bustling part of the town that offers refreshing sea breezes and easy access to the beach. Many of the best local restaurants can be found close by, serving an array of options including smoked meats and fresh fish dishes.
Those wanting to see more of the island will love Cannigione's location, just a short drive from many of the island’s top towns and attractions. Pretty Baia Sardinia is less than 10 miles away, while the popular island town of Olbia can be reached by car in 40 minutes. Even better, there are plenty of great watersports to enjoy in the local area, including diving and snorkelling.

When to go
Sardinia is a summer destination, with the season generally running from May to early October. Temperatures are at their hottest in July and August and this is when the towns and beaches are at their busiest. However, Sardinia also enjoys a mild climate in spring and autumn with temperatures rarely going beneath 20 degrees which makes it perfect for visiting at the beginning or end of season too. May, June and September are ideal months to visit for those wanting to avoid the busiest crowds and still enjoy warm weather.
At the current time, British citizens do not require a visa to visit Italy.
