Swimming and snorkeling are the main activities to discover the beautiful seabed. Among the great offer of amazing accommodation facilities, we give you some tips on which beach resort to choose from that better suits the needs of you and your family
Be careful because after seeing these wonderful resorts your desire of Sardinia will be irrepressible …
Before continuing your journey among the best beach resorts in Sardinia, keep these little tips in mind
1. Know the location
It is important to know if the Resort is located a short distance from the city centre and services or outside the urban areas
2. Need of a rental car
In case you are outside the city centre it is advisable to rent a car because public transport in Sardinia does not reach all the most hidden areas and beaches
3. Type of beaches nearby
Sandy or rocky beaches. The latter generally preferred by adults perfect for exploring the seabed. Rocky beaches are obviously not suitable for families with children who like to have fun playing and building sand castles. It is important to inquire according to your family needs.

What part of Sardinia?
Most of the tourist areas – thanks to the large choice of accommodation – offer both economic and high-budget solutions.
In the northern part of Sardinia, around Alghero you can mainly find hotels or holiday homes for rent. Lots of choices between rural houses with garden or modern city apartments for every kind of budgets
Costa Smeralda and Olbia are highly developed holiday areas with a high standard and luxury resorts renowned all over the world such as the luxurious Porto Cervo Resorts
In southern Sardinia around Villasimius and Chia you can find family beach resorts with splendid private beaches.
The Costa Verde – still little developed from the tourism point of view – offers mostly small hotels and several family owned B&Bs besides the typical farms: b&b and farms for a digital detox
When is the best time to visit Sardinia?
The best time for a beach holiday is obviously summer when the weather is reliably hot with a lively breeze that blows from the sea. Be aware that July and August tends to be very crowded everywhere you go! If you are looking for quiet places you can enjoy swim in smaller bays where you have no services or facilities but just the sand and the sea.
From late May to the end of October, or even later it’s possible to enjoy more the beaches in Sardinia. Sea temperatures average over 20°C well into November while spring is very good time for sunny days and fresh chilly swims
