Isola Rossa – or Red Island – is a traditional fishing village and one of Sardinia’s hottest new destinations. Great for an authentic Italian escape, this picturesque commune is perhaps best known for its beautiful surroundings, gaining its name from the unique red-rock outcrop that emerges from the sea a little way out.
Isola Rossa has a great laid-back vibe, with a vibrant little harbour right at the centre that offers easy mooring and boat hire. Crowned by a dramatic ancient tower, the village features a beautiful sandy beach with crystal-clear water that’s fantastic for snorkelling, as well as a handful of great restaurants.
What’s more, the village is situated within easy driving distance of many of the island’s best locations. The dramatic plateau of Castelsardo is only 30 minutes away, while the characterful seaside town of Santa Teresa di Gallura can be reached in 45 minutes.
