When to visit Sardegna
The right answer would be "immediately" or "as soon as possible"! Obviously the best time to enjoy Sardinia is during the summer. The counterargument is that in the high season, late July / early August, the island is flooded with tourists and rental prices rise. The luck is that on average the summer in Sardinia is longer than on the continent, with average temperatures around 20 degrees in May as well as in October. In these two periods of low season, where you can swim without problems, you can find holiday apartments in Sardinia from € 30 per night. Sardinia is not just sea, however: if what interests you is a cultural visit of the Island, visiting its archaeological beauty with the many possibilities of excursions that it offers, then the 'early spring could be a good time to visit the island, where you will be saving compared to the summer.

Points of interest in Sardinia
Famous all over the world for its crystal clear sea and its white beaches that are almost tropical, Sardinia offers some of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean. There really is something for everyone: from the Caribbean beaches of the Costa Smeralda, to rocky beaches for those who love snorkelling, such as La Maddalena. All immersed in the green and fragrant Mediterranean vegetation, with its nature reserves and breathtaking views. A holiday home near the beach in Sardinia will take you directly to paradise. Here are some, but only some, of the beaches to be seen during your holiday in Sardinia.
- La Pelosa: A house by the sea near Pelosa is probably the most perfect thing there is to fully experience the crystalline sea of this island. White sand, soft, crystal clear waters and the Tower of Pelosa as a backdrop make this beach in the province of Sassari one of the most beautiful in Sardinia. In front you can see the islands of Asinara and Piana.
- Isuledda: More and more tourists every year come to visit San Teodoro and this part of the island. S'Isuledda is certainly the most beautiful beach of this town, located in the homonymous point. Perfect even for those on holiday in Sardinia with children, it has a sandy bottom and isn’t too deep. All around, the nature of the Mediterranean scrub surrounds what is a true earthly paradise.
- Punta Molentis: Villasimius is instead a resort that offers a large number of seaside villas for rent, making it ideal for holidays with family or with friends. Among its most beautiful beaches is Punta Molentis, which is part of the Marine Protected Area of Capo Carbonara. Behind it is a hill with ancient nuragic remains that make it an area where beauty and history merge, in a quiet and relaxing atmosphere.
- Ampurias: Considered to be the pearl of the Sardinian west coast, near Sassari, in the Castelsardo area. In 2012 it won for the second time the prize for the beach with the highest environmental quality.
- Cala Bradinchi: This is part of the Capo Cavallo area. A beach of light sand, with dunes that are almost desert-like, in the frame formed by two pine forests. A very touristy area, but that still maintains its wild beauty.
- Punta Tegge: This is located on the island of La Maddalena, in the homonymous archipelago. Its beaches are mixed: white sand that alternates with pinkish rocks. A mix that creates a truly striking colour effect.
- Cala Mariolu: if you choose to look for a holiday home on the central-eastern coast of the island, then we suggest you to stay near this pearl of the Gulf of Orosei. With white and pink pebbles, it is reachable only after a trek in nature or by the sea. But the beauty of this place is worth every effort it takes to get there. The name derives from the monk seal which, it is said, stole the fish from the nets of the fishermen and was therefore called "mariolu", i.e. thief.
- Cala Spinosa: We are in Santa Teresa di Gallura, Capo Testa. A small beach with cliffs of granite rock overlooking the sea. Diving enthusiasts will be fascinated by the beauty of these seabeds.
- Cala Coticcio: Here we are on the island of Caprera which has a white beach with very thin sand. According to many this is the most beautiful and clean sea of Sardinia and its colors are fantastic. Close to the sea, juniper, cistus and lentisk plants grow on the rocks. It is really spectacular. An interesting fact: this island is also famous for being the place where Garibaldi spent the last 26 years of his life: the Compendio Garibaldino and his residence are now open to visitors and is very interesting to visit.
- Tuerredda: A spectacular islet between Capo Malfatano and Capo Spartivento, made even more fabulous by the homonymous islet in front, which is only accessible by swimming.
- Budelli pink beach: if you have taken a lodging somewhere in the Maddalena archipelago, in the North-East of Sardinia, the pink beach of Budelli is an absolutely must in your itinerary. The name derives from a high percentage of bioclasts in the composition of the sand, which gives this beach a unique pink colour. Without a doubt, and you will realise it, that you are facing one of the most colourful and original beaches in the world.
- Solanas: Golden sand, crystalline water, and breathtaking colours. Beautiful, of course, but nothing new in regards to Sardinia. But there is one thing that makes this beach really unique, which is located just a few kilometres from Cagliari. It has a particular scent caused by the presence of the wind and the surrounding vegetation.
- Su Giudeu: A very long coastline, which is characterised by dunes on which scented and secular junipers climb. Ideal for children, this beach overlooks the bay of Chia. The name derives from the islet of Su Giudeu, located 150m from the shore.
- Cala Luna: Located in the province of Nuoro, Gulf of Orisei. This is one of the most unique beaches in the world, located at the mouth of a stream that marks the border of the territories of Dorgali and Baunei. The stream is called Codula di Luna, hence the name. It is so beautiful and unique that it has been chosen several times as a film set. We suggest finding self catering villas in Sardinia near to this beach.
- Scoglio di Peppino: Sardinia is the place where natural beauty is mixed with culture, history and anecdotes. This Costa Rei beach owes its name to the Scoglio Peppino, located just a few metres from the beach. Peppino was the name of a fisherman who, after his working hours, used to sit on that rock to relax and meditate, observing the sea. Now Peppino is gone but the rock, easily reachable by foot thanks to a strip of sand, bears his name.
- Rena Majori: This is one of the most beautiful beaches of Gallura, in the north of the island. Emblemetic of this beach are the "natural pools" that are formed between the rocks, a few steps from the shore. This corner of paradise is ideal if you have rented an apartment in Santa Teresa Gallura, which is only eight kilometres away.
- La Rena Bianca: We are still in Gallura, but in this case we are talking about what is actually the town beach of Santa Teresa. This is a cove about 700m long, with shallow water and white sand, hence the name. How do you get there? You can reach it from the hill where the main square of the village stands you will be able to see it and, from there, there is a stairway of 300 m which will take you directly to the shore. Without a doubt among the most beautiful beaches of the Costa Smeralda and we have some wonderful Sardinia holiday villas with pools nearby.
- Cala Domestica: An inlet framed between white limestone cliffs, has a bottom of thin sand mixed with gravel. This pearl of the southwest coast is located in a former mining area, with ruins still present. A position that makes the landscape truly unique and evocative. Around, the area offers many services, including a parking area suitable for campers and a kiosk. Characteristic that, together with the low and safe depth, makes this perfect cove for those who are on holiday in Sardinia with children.
- Is Arutas: A unique beach, for its size and above all for its composition which is rich in quartz grains with chromatic scales ranging from pink to green. It is very interesting for those who practice snorkelling, but also coveted by surf-lovers.
- Su Tiriarzu di Posada: This is one of the most beautiful beaches of Posada, and is only a short distance from the town. The particular name derives from the "tiria", a type of plant that grows between the vegetation. Clear water that stands out on the white sand that covers this stretch of very long shoreline.
- Cala Sisine: Although it is less famous than the nearby pink beach, this cove of the municipality of Baunei is just as beautiful. It is striking in colour, thanks to the presence of very white pebbles that make its waters even clearer and more transparent. If you have chosen this area as your holiday destination for your self catering in Sardinia, Italy, you should visit all the beaches of the Gulf of Orosei which is full of small boats that leave every day from La Caletta and stop in all the coves of this beautiful gulf.
- Punta Cardinalino: Located in Palau, at the suggestive north-eastern promontory of Capo D'Orso. This is a cove surrounded by rock and is wedged between the most green and wild Mediterranean vegetation.
