Things to do in Sardinia

The beautiful island of Sardinia, pride of Italy, still retains the mystical air of the past, of the times long before it was finally opened to tourism, which wasn’t too long ago either.

The coast is indisputably the center of a type of elite tourism, where you can enjoy a pleasant stay, surrounded by the sea, in excellent Sardinian beaches with marinas nearby, such as Porto Cervo and Porto Rodtondo, both in the town of Olbia , Costa Esmeralda. A less exclusive tourism is found in Alghero and Santa Teresa de Gallura, while the agency tourism is more focused in Porto Conte or Santa Margherita. Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean, with a coastline of 1849 kilometers; a long, straight seacoast with high and rocky cliffs. It has many capes, estuaries and wide, deep bays where you can anchor. In this aspect, it is possible to anchor safely in gulfs such as Asinara (north), Orosei (east), Oristano (west) and Cagliari (south) without separating much from the coast; navigate among the islets, such as the volcanic island of Saint Pietro, in front of the peninsula the Sulcis (and connected by ferry Portoscuso and Calasetta); or the Maddalena Archipelago. The latter, a National Park, is in front of the northeast coast, in the Tyrrhenian Sea, and consist of seven islands and several islets. It has become a popular tourist destination especially among sailors.

In Sardinia, the Mediterranean climate prevails; with some fortunate areas that enjoy 300 days a year without rainfall, mild winters and dry summers, thanks to the wind that makes the summer heat bearable. On the other hand, captains will find out that sailing is ideal around the island, as the Mistral (in the northwest) predominates throughout most of the year, so strong but fresh at the same time, as well as the Sirocco. One of the main industries is shipbuilding, especially in Olbia, Porto towers and Arbatx, but, above all others is tourism.

The Costa Smeralda, or Emerald Coast, is an affluent, highly developed, tourist area situated in the north east of Sardinia, covering an area of 30 sq km of spectacular white sand beaches, luxury villas, 5 star hotels and lavish marinas full of super-yachts and in September -the Sardinia Cup sailing regatta is held on the coast. Many luxury hotels enjoy private moorings. The island also enjoys natural parks, Sa Spendula waterfall and Gennargentu massif, where only ski resorts of the island are located.
