Must do & Must see – our suggestions

Must-do

  • Book an excursion or take a ferry from Port of Palau to discover the archipelago of La Maddalena, where the scenery could have come straight out of a postcard.
  • Discover the Costa Smeralda, where billionaires come to show off their yachts and luxury vessels.
  • Rent a car and follow the winding roads through the scrubland to explore the authentic little villages.
  • Alternatively, take a walk on the white sand while listening to the soft lapping of the waves. You'll feel as though you've found a piece of heaven on earth…
  • And to finish, don't forget to buy a little bottle of mirto to round off your meals perfectly.
     

 

Must-see

  • You can't leave Sardinia without seeing a nuraghe! These stone towers, whose origins date back to the bronze age, are dotted across the island. The Su Nuraxi Nuraghe has even been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  • Cagliari, whose Sardinian name ‘Casteddu’, means castle, looks out over the salt marshes and is home to several architectural gems. Make sure to visit the cathedral and the Bastion of Saint Remy too.
  • Browse the luxury boutiques of Porto Cervo. Who knows, you might even bump into Sting or Harrison Ford…
  • Try some culurgiones, traditional Sardinian ravioli whose shape indicates which region of Sardinia they come from. But, of course, you won’t want to limit yourself to just looking at them…
