Sardinia is one of the most stunning and diverse places in Italy to visit. Nestled in the Mediterranean, to the west of the mainland, it’s a relatively big island (as European islands go) and there are so many of the best things to do in Sardina dotted all across its coast and inland valleys.
That being said, what they end up doing is leaving you wanting to go back and explore more of Italy. This is exactly where the island of Sardinia comes in.
Honestly, Sardinia feels like the kind of place you visit for more of a sun-soaked holiday, and, being the second-largest island in the Mediterranean (it’s even bigger than Cyprus), it’s got a heap of stunning bays and quaint little villages to explore.
With that in mind, I wanted to share some of my favourite and the best things to do in Sardinia when you visit. It’s a gorgeous island, so make sure you spend some time exploring! Have the best time.
1.) Cala Goloritze
Perched in the Gulf of Orosei, Cala Goloritze is one stunning beach and coastline to explore when you’re in Baunei.
Now, the beach itself is actually quite new! It was only (naturally) formed in the 1960s when a massive landslide caused this stunning little area to explore. It’s totally stunning.
Also, close by, you’ll find the stunning landscapes of Le Figlie Della Aguglia. It’s such a unique spot on the island and easily one of the best things to do in Sardinia when you’re driving the coastal routes.
Being the capital city of Sardinia, Cagliari is the perfect Italian city to visit if you fancy lots of little restaurants, mounds of history and quaint little streets.
Once here, make sure to explore Bastione Saint Remy, and see the Cathedral of Saint Mary and Poetto if you fancy a city beach with plenty of bars.
It’s a great place to start (or end) your trip in Sardinia and well worth staying for a few days.
It’s such a gorgeous city.
3.) Pelosa Beach
For me, visiting Pelosa Beach is a must when exploring the northern routes of Sardinia. It’s totally stunning and one of the best beach areas (and coastal regions in all of Italy).
Trust me, you’ll see why once you arrive!
Now, the only thing to remember…
