Out and About

Sardinia is rich in history and culture, boasts a wonderful scenic coastline and is famous for it's fantastic sandy beaches and beautifully clear, turquoise water. There are many idyllic coves and unspoilt beaches which means there are plenty of opportunities for watersports. The island on a whole is a great place for surfing, kite surfing, canoeing and windsurfing but Porto Pollo, near Palau offers some of the best conditions for windsurfing in Europe.

The clear waters around the coast makes for perfect conditions for divers who want to explore the Roman galleys and wrecks, underwater caves, shoals of fish, dolphins and turtles. There are lots of dive centres around the coast and the waters are perfect for beginners and experienced divers.

Another outdoor activity is walking among the hills and mountains. There are many great routes for the keen hiker and there is some great scenery and a chance to see local wildlife from the Marmilla table-top mountain.

If you want to escape the beach for the day but still want to keep cool, why not visit the waterpark. There are many pools and slides to keep the whole family entertained for hours. Another trip the children may enjoy is a ride on the Little Green Train which puffs along twice a day between Arbatax and Mandas along the coast, past lakes and forests and into the mountains.

There are many National Parks in Sardina, with each area being as beautiful as the next. These protected areas include the high mountains of the Gennargentu National Park, where eagles and falcons soar above, the wild rock and white and pink sands of the Maddalena National Park, the island National Park of Asinara which is populated by small white donkeys and the Molentargius Park with it's pretty pink flamingos.

Out for Lunch!

Sardinia is the perfect place for those that love food. Fresh bread, skewered meats, seafood and Sardinian Pecorino cheese are all a big hit in Sardinia. Fresh fruit and vegetables are all grown locally and used in most of the cuisine available. Buttariga is smoked mullet caviar and is usually served as an appetizer and many Sardinians eat it with spaghetti.

You can dine in a wide choice of restaurants, cafes and snack bars. Out of the touristy areas you will find more of the traditional restaurants serving local cuisine and traditional delights. If its a more International menu you require, stay in the tourist area of Sardinia.
