For the clued-up traveller, Sardinia’s southern shore is a great option, dotted with breathtaking beaches and quiet fishing towns. South Sardinia may be a little less polished than North Sardinia, but its extra-long beachfronts and charming towns more than make up for it.

South Sardinia is popular with holidaying Italians. This keeps things traditional, with authentic restaurants and beach resorts without the glitz and celebrity gloss of the Costa Smeralda. Take Chia, a tiny but beautiful hamlet surrounded by five different beaches, or Villasimius, blessed with Caribbean-level beaches and a laid-back atmosphere.

South Sardinia isn’t just about the beaches – it’s home to the island’s capital, Cagliari, which boasts sandstone architecture and thriving markets. There’s history here, too, with the ancient archaeological site of Nora close by and numerous nuraghe (ancient megalithic monuments) scattered across the landscape.

Things to do in South Sardinia

South Sardinia, like its northern counterpart, is best known for mile upon mile of soft-sand beaches. It’s quieter down at this end of the island, with the beaches generally less crowded and more rugged than up north. Chia is a perfect example of this, boasting five pristine beaches and just a few locals to enjoy them. Away from the sands, Sardinia’s capital, Cagliari, is an eclectic mix of historical monuments and bustling streets, packed with charming restaurants and shops. Continuing the history vibe, nearby Nora is also well worth a visit – it’s one of the island’s most impressive archaeological sites, complete with informative tour guides and a beautiful coastal setting.

Top Tips from our Destination Experts

Romina Locci

Italy Expert
My pick for a family holiday in Italy would be the south of Sardinia. I grew up in Sardinia, so can say with confidence that it’s a fantastic place to visit with children! I’d recommend visiting in May, when the prices are a little lower and the temperatures are warm but not too hot.

Flight Information

The closest airport to the resorts in South Sardinia is Cagliari (CAG). Direct flights to Cagliari are available from London Gatwick, London Heathrow, Southend and London Stansted and take approximately 2 hours.
