The second biggest island in the Mediterranean (the first one is Sicily), Sardinia is a paradise for beach lovers! Whether you want to enjoy the life of the glitterati in the famous resorts of Costa Smeralda, or explore the more authentic southern coast, you will marvel at the beautiful beaches of the island, the combination of white sand and emerald water particularly appreciated by surfers. As beautiful as the coastline can be, some of the most memorable sights are found underwater so snorkeling and scuba diving are a must do! For golf lovers, three beautiful 18-hole golf courses are located on the island, the Pevero Golf Club on the north coast, Is Arenas Golf Club on the west coast, and Is Molas Golf Club on the south coast. Thanks to the proximity of the sea the golf courses enjoy unique water views and a mild climate, particularly favorable for golf all year round.
Cagliari is the capital of Sardinia and the island's largest city. In Cagliari, visit the Castle, the Archeological Museum, the Marina district near the port, with its arcaded street with cafes and shops, the town hall, and several churches. Do not miss Cagliari botanic gardens and the Roman amphitheater, built in the second century, where outdoor concerts are held during the summer.
In the southern area, we suggest a visit to Baia Chia beaches, with a forest of Juniper trees and sand dunes as a backdrop. You should also explore Capo Malfatano, Cala Cipolla, Tuarredda and the beautiful beach of Cala Zafferano. This area offers a wide range of activities including sightseeing of the ancient Phoenician, Punic, and Roman remains at Nora, including those of an ancient Roman outdoor theater where performances are still held in summer. Animal lovers should check the natural marine shelter and sea turtle rescue center at Nora Lagoon.

WHERE TO SHOP
Sardinia is a hub for handicrafts, making it a souvenir shopper’s paradise. Look for wooden carnival masks, handmade lace, filigree jewelry, cork, and world famous handmade knives. Do not forget to try the smoked ricotta, the Pecorino Cheese (sheep’s milk cheese), our favorite is Fiore Sardo, or notable wines and the head-splitting firewater, filu e ferru, the local semolina pasta called "fregole", a close relative to couscous. To make sure you are buying local, look for signs advertising “Prodotti Tipici Sardi”, or the island-sponsored I.S.O.L.A. co-op stores.
