If you have never visited to Sardinia before, you might well believe that this pretty island will be simply Italy in miniature. However, this is not the case at all. Sardinia has a unique and delightful character that is very much its own.

Distinctive Architecture

Sardinia’s architecture is in direct contrast to mainland Italy. This is due to the fact that the island was once used as a stop-off for the travellers of long ago as they navigated the Mediterranean Sea. In turn the mighty Phoenicians, the stoic Vandals and the creative Byzantines all left their calling cards, creating a delightful melting pot of different architectural styles.

Sandy Beaches

Another aspect of this gorgeous island that sets it apart form the competition is its huge number of beaches. To put this in perspective, the north coast alone boasts more than eighty pretty coves. One of the best beaches on the island is located just by the traditional fishing village of Isola Rossa. With the clearest turquoise waters, this is also an ideal place to go snorkelling.

Food and Drink

Sardinia does share one important face with its neighbour Italy - and that is its fantastic reputation for the finest food and drink. Whether you choose to eat at a small family run cafe or a top end fashionable restaurant you are guaranteed an unforgettable culinary experience.

Resorts

Alghero, in the north west, is one of the most attractive towns on the island. It was Spanish-ruled between the 15th and 18th centuries, and this key part of its history is visible in every part of the town - particularly in the atmospheric old quarter - 'Little Barcelona'. Here the cobbled streets and ancient walls will transport you back to a time long ago, and this traditional charm runs right through this part of Sardinia. There are lots of lovely beaches located nearby - this is a resort which really does tick all the boxes.

Isola Rossa (the 'red island') takes its name from the huge granite rock that rests just off-shore. Whilst it isn't actually an island, it most certainly is a lovely fishing community on the attractive north west edge of the island, with great views over the tranquil Bay of Asinara. Fishing is still key to the economy here, but there are an increasing number of lovely places to stay, plus a wide range of water sports and a huge water park within a stone's throw that will delight children of all ages.
