Beaches in Sardinia
Boasting numerous white sandy beaches and azure waters you can find the perfect spot to relax and swim. Sunning yourselves on the sand and dipping yourself in an out of the warm sea is the ideal scenario for you and your partner to unwind, and enjoy each other’s company. You will be spoilt for choice with so many glorious beaches in both the north and south of the island. There is the quiet beach of Capo Spartivento in the south or, the national Sardinian monument of Cala Goloritzè, a beautiful bay that is only accessible via the sea.

For those who are more active, watersports are in abundance with prominent winds and the warm temperatures of the Mediterranean Sea. Sardinia is known as one of the top watersports destinations in the Mediterranean with many of the activities wind-based including, surfing, windsurfing, sailing and most recently, kite surfing. For both beach-lovers and watersports enthusiasts we recommend heading to the resorts near Porto Cervo such as, Golfo Aranci and Cannigione in northern Sardinia.
Treat yourselves in Porto Cervo
The coastal area of Costa Smeralda is sure to impress with its sophisticated and exclusive atmosphere and the impressive town of Porto Cervo. There is a plethora of fine dining options with elegant restaurants and cafes offering spectacular views of the coast. Why not treat yourselves to some delicious Sardinian cuisine, such as the local speciality of porchetto otherwise known as suckling pig, over a glass of Mirto followed by Limoncello.
Find love in the Sardinian countryside
If you are one for a little adventure I suggest edging away from the coast to hike, walk or stroll around the delightful countryside, traditional towns and villages. Or aboard the little green train (Trenino Verde) which will take you from from Palau to Tempio, Bosa to Macomer and Arbatax to Mandas showing you the best of Sardinia’s beautiful landscape. Equally why not hop onto a ferry across to Corisca to spend time on this exquisite French island. If you are after somewhere a bit quieter and more secluded, then catch a boat to one of the islands of archipelago La Maddalena.
