Where to go in Sardinia?
I traveled for two weeks through Sardinia by a rented car. Arriving in Olbia, explore the Costa Smeralda, cruising the Arcipelago di La Magdalena, walking and relaxing in Arzachena and sunbathing in Cala Brandinchi. You will enjoy this beautiful area of Sardinia. Driving to the Eastern part of Sardinia where the nature is overwhelming. The limestone mountains drop into the ocean in the nearby Golfo di Orosei. The cliffs are robust and melt down into the aquamarine waters. The mountain range is one of the deepest valleys in Europe.
Longer drive to the Northwest of Sardinia. Wander through the streets of the old town of Alghero, climb down and up to the fairy-tale Grotta di Nettuno, relax at Mugoni Beach close to Alghero and drive the stunning scenery coastal route called SP105 all the way to Bosa. Going south to West Sardinia where you can surf in Putzu Idu, sleep, shop and eat in Oristano, spot dozens of flamingo’s at Stagno di Cabras, chill at Is Aruttas, enjoy the amazing view at Roman Tharros.
Heading to Southwest Sardinia and discover the Costa Verde including the excluded Spiaggia di Piscinas, cruise via Spiaggia Portixeddu, Buggerru, Cala Domestica to Porto Flavia and enjoy the nice town of Iglesias. Last region in Sardinia South where you can spot the dunes and blue water in Porto Pino, drive the amazing Strada Panoramica del la Costa del Sud, get a tan at the most beautiful spots Cala Teuradda and Chia and have dinner in the best restaurants in Pula. Then depart from Cagliari where you go back in time in and get out of the city to Poetto Beach. Check my Instagram for more travel inspirations!
