About the location
Palau is a Sardinian gem: a picturesque harbour town set alongside several splendid north coast beaches. First established by shepherds little more than 100 years ago, the town is now a chic beach resort packed with popular restaurants and surrounded by natural splendour. The heart of the town is partially surrounded by water and features terracotta-coloured lanes overlooked by pretty wrought-iron balconies, with tantalising glimpses of the sea around each corner. Wander past local boutiques and craft workshops, take part in a variety of watersports, and enjoy al fresco dining.

One of the must-do attractions in Palau is the Trenino Verde (Little Green Train) which takes riders high into the otherwise inaccessible hills. This quaint vintage locomotive is straight out of the 1930s, with wooden bench seating and a narrow gauge that makes each journey a true adventure, passing through some of the region’s most spectacular scenery. Other local sights include the dramatic Fortezza di Monte Altura, a 19th-century fortress set high above the town, and the peculiar Roccia dell’Orso rock formations which decorate the natural landscape with intriguing animal-shaped boulders, just a few miles from Palau’s centre. 
Transfer time
The hotel is 40 minutes from Olbia airport. We recommend hiring a car in your destination. Simply call us once you’ve completed your booking and we will talk you through the options.
