The beauty of the Sardinian sea is out of the question. You can find Caribbean beaches with spectacular colors of waters (… it really is that blue color of the water? I am often asked and the answer is YES, absolutely YES!)

1850km of coastline (indented) with characteristics that change significantly from north to south and from east to west. Typical granite coast of Gallura, perhaps one of the most spectacular places in the world – where the granite rocks shaped by wind and water creates real sculptures of the strangest form

The best way to visit Sardinia is the car. Either you come with your machine, or that you hire on the spot, the car is undoubtedly the best way to move from one place to another in the island.

For daredevils who trust in the public service, Sardinia is served by a network of regional buses that connect the main towns. For more information on local transport please visit this page: local bus connections

Travel by train instead is a little trickier. The Sardinian railway line is very dated and the means not just modern. However you can get from Sassari to Olbia, or from Olbia to Cagliari by train.
