If you are looking for the best beaches in the Mediterranean, look no further! They are located here, in Costa Esmeralda. This paradise brings together more than 50 beaches of white sand and transparent water that would be featured in the Top 10 of any country. Yet here they are, in the same area! There are beaches specialised in water sports, such as those in Palau, where you can practice the best windsurfing and the best kitesurfing in the Mediterranean, and other suitable for family tourism, such as La Cinta, in San Teodoro.

Of special mention is Porto Cervo, the epicenter of Mediterranean luxury. In recent years it has become the meeting point for rich and famous people who enjoy their summer holidays in an exclusive enclave. The yachts multiply in the port and a stroll through the pontoons can become an oneiric experience, as well as visiting the boutiques of the first firms, which are all present in Porto Cervo.

The nightlife is also one of the strong points of Costa Esmeralda. Lately, dozens of shops have been opened focused on enjoying the magnificent sunsets and nightlife near the beach. There are bars and clubs where the latest musical trends are played and where having a drink or a few is a real pleasure.

Some key spots not to miss out if you visit this area are Arzachena, Baja Sardinia, Olbia and Palau, Porto Cervo, Porto Rotondo and San Teodoro.

Costa Esmeralda has an airport that guarantees easy access by air and also several tourist ports that have countless connections with the peninsula of Italy and also with a large number of islands. Finally, the road network is very well preserved and the area is perfectly connected to each other and to the rest of the island.

This is one of the mandatory stops you have to make if you visit Sardinia. Nuraxi di Barumini is the most important archaeological site on the island. Not in vain, its antiquity, its good state of conservation and its uniqueness have earned it recognition as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Here are the best preserved nuraghi of Sardinia, a set of defense towers made of rocks, with different huts forming the village around them. The beauty of this place is full of history. Already in the age of the bronze it was inhabited and later dominated by Punic and Roman. The imprint of all these civilizations can still be glimpsed in every corner. We can’t forget that each of its monuments was made in different stages of Italian history.

To get there, it is best to take the car, since it is only an hour away from the capital, Cagliari. It’s located in the village of Barumini, in Medio Campidano. If you want to avoid large crowds, it is best to get up and arrive early, so you can take the best photographs of this site and enjoy it with more calm and tranquility.

    When to go?

    Sardinia has an insular Mediterranean climate and therefore becomes a perfect island to discover any time of the year. It is also one of the regions with the lowest cloud index, which guarantees approximately three hundred days of sunshine per year. If your purpose is to enjoy its endless and idyllic beaches and make sure you get good weather and sun, it is best to travel in the summer. The temperature is around 30 degrees and, on the hottest days, can reach up to 40 in the interior villages of the island. But if you prefer to enjoy its beaches in a cooler and calmer surroundings, a good option is to take advantage of the Easter holidays, a perfect choice to avoid crowds and get to know the island in a much milder yet warm temperature. The best times to visit the island are spring and autumn. Two seasons in which the temperatures are very pleasant both to enjoy its beaches, calmer and less agglomerated than in summer, as well as to visit its villages, its history and its traditions, without feeling the heat of the strongest months. In winter the temperatures are not very low, although you have to keep in mind that Sardinia is an island and therefore you’ll get humid weather. And we must be aware that although it is not usual, it sometimes snows during the winter months in mountainous areas. The coldest months oscillate between December and February with minimums of 17º.

    DOCUMENTATION

    Since Sardinia is an Italian island and belongs to the European Union, the only documentation you will need is your ID Card or passport updated. You don’t need a visa. But if you want to visit the island hiring a car, one of the best options to make the most of your trip and reach all its corners, we recommend you take the driver’s license. In case you bring your own car to Sardinia, don’t forget to bring all the documentation: the car license, the vehicle inspection sheet, the MOT, the last receipt of the circulation tax and the current insurance receipt. In case of accident, it is important to carry the European social security card. With it, you will have no problem receiving health care on the island.

This is the best option, if what you are thinking about is visiting the island and bring your own car or motorcycle, since there is a car park in the ferry and its prices are not too expensive. But if you do not go to Sardinia from Spain, we have other shorter alternatives are to take the ferry that leaves from Marseille, in France, or the one that leaves from Genoa, already in Italy .. Although they are not the only routes, since ships also leave from other ports located on the Italian coast such as Rome, Naples or Civitavecchia.

In the main cities you will not have problems to pay by credit card, but bear in mind that in some small places you will have to pay by cash, so make sure you always keep euros in your wallet.

    If I book Flight + Hotel, when will I receive my travel documents?

    Once the booking is confirmed you will receive a confirmation e-mail. The voucher for the hotel will be also sent by email plus the vouchers for any other services (car hire, transfer, travel insurance) if booked.

    Please note that no flight tickets are sent due to most airlines using e-tickets. You only need to print our confirmation email where the Airline`s booking reference appears and take it with you to the airport with your ID/Passport documents.

    Important: Some Low Cost Airlines (Ryanair, Easyjet, Wizzair, Blueair and others) now request all passengers to check-in online and print the Boarding Cards before departure through their corresponding websites. Failure to do so, these airlines will charge you a supplement at the airport.
