Top 10 Things to do in Sardinia, Italy

March 17, 2018 Rosalyn Ihle

The second-largest island in Mediterranean after Sicily, Sardinia serves up a lovely blend of sea, sand and history. Thousands of nuraghe (stone buildings) dot the landscape, proof that people have been enjoying the lovely climate here for millennia. From posh Costa Smerelda in the north to medieval Alghero in the northwest to the lively capital of Cagliari in the south, and with many picturesque towns and unspoiled sandy beaches in between, Sardinia’s got a little something for everyone.

Had a stop at the beach for two hours during a boat trip. Beautiful beach, white sand and crystal clear water. Not so big but luckily not all boat trips stops at the beach. One can only reach the beach by boat.

Isola di Spargi

We visited this island when talking one of the many boats out of Palau to visit the archipelago. Therefore, one is always dealing with a beach and space that is suddenly full of people when the boat/s arrive. Nevertheless, we still a pleasant hour or two swimming in beautiful clear water and relaxing on the beach.

Parco Nazionale dell'Arcipelago di La Maddalena

La Maddalena Archipelago National Park is a geomarine protected area consisting of a group of Islands situated in the north-east of the coast of Gallura, in the stretch of sea between Sardinia and Corsica known as Bocche di Bonifacio. These Islands – except for La Maddalena Island housing the homonymous town and characterized by a significant human presence – are entirely deserted or scattered with small human settlements, like in Caprera and Santa Maria Islands.

Took a boat excursion to this parc. Stopped at 3 Islands and the tranquility was wonderful. Lunch was served by some turquoise sea admiring the views. Wonderful day which I will remember forever.

Splendid large park with mature trees. Well tended pathways and marked trails up to 17 km. Lovely moss and fern covered Waterfalls. A Lebanese cedar several hundred years old—do smell the cut end that sticks out. Castle ruins to explore. A lovely green place worth visiting the appealing town of Laconi for.

The family we stayed with arranged for us to meet our guide Roberto at the main road in Tuili. From there he led us by car up the Giara.
Once up there he took us on a wonderful, light, hour and a half walk to a lake and back. At the lake we saw plenty of the famous horses from quiet close. On our walk we did see many other things, both natural and cultural, and Roberto explained a lot about it all - in English(!).
Afterwards we had some local wine, cheese and meat at the guide's office in the village.

Cala Corsara

Reviewed By chocdikrab - Frankfurt, Germany

cala corsara, located on the southside of the island spargi, is one of the unreached jewels of the archipelago di maddalena. the huge bay, which has four fine sandy beachsections inside the bay is only reachable by boat.. a fifth beachsection...also beautiful...is located nearby the natural harbour on the other side of the small cape which is located at the East End. sometimes it is a little bit noisy at this beachsection because bigger boats arrive and stop there.
we arrived on a early afternoon during a hot and sunny day and a lot of yachts, sailingboats, catamarans and smaller speedboats lay at anchor before the bay.
in the moment we arrived on the beach we thought we were teleported into paradise.
the four beachsection of cala corsara were distributed beautiful in the bay with high Mountains in the back. lush maccia and a lot of bushes grow between the rocks. the beachsections are interrupt from cliffs different styles and big rocks are spreaded in the sand and in the water.
we choosed the beachsection in the middle of the bay, which offers a great view over the whole inner area and the boats infront of the bay. a very interssting granite rock is located there. the huge rock is hollow and a perfect place during hot and sunny days. all beachsections slope gently to the sea and they have sandy ground mostly. between the Beaches a lot of rocks are located under the water surface and watershoes should be used, because sea urchins are habitated there.
the water was crsytalclear and present every shade of grenn and blue till milky white.
it is unbelieveble what nature created on this enchanting place. at the West End of the beach are cliffs located also...there two mysic rocks are located...one is called the witch rock ...the other one the bulldog...also a stoney map of Italy made by the wind and the waves is there to explore.
cala corsara was without question one of the unforgettable highlights during our stay in the archipelago di maddalena...we had one of our nicests stays since we travel in sardegna at cala corsara. when we are back we will be there again without question.
