Where should I stay in Sardinia?
Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean, its coastline is a mix of white-sand beaches and rugged cliffs depending on where you stay.
The most famous part of Sardinia is the Costa Smeralda, this upmarket resort is the playground of the rich and famous and this is where they moor their yachts during the summer months. If you’re looking for the quieter beach resorts with lots of Mediterranean charm head to La Maddalena, Villasimius and Margherita di Pula.
Cagliari, the island’s capital, is a maze of narrow streets that cover the hillside up to the old citadel. Down by the water front is where you will find avenues filled with shops and restaurants.
Alghero is extremely popular and has a distinct Spanish feel that is evident in the architecture, food and the local dialect.
