Highlights of Sardinia


My luck has it that I was born and raised in Sardinia, and this is what I call home. I have the chance to explore it one bit at a time, and I am not done exploring yet! I have a few favourite places of course. My hometown, Cagliari; Costa Rei, my favourite vacation spot, and all its surroundings; the area of Golfo di Orosei and Isola dell’Asinara – these are only a few of the amazing places Sardinia has to offer to those who visit.

Sardinia is a great place to travel to in all seasons. Most people enjoy it in the summer, as we have amazing beaches with crystal clear water. I think it is incredible even in spring, fall and winter, despite the rain may be abundant. During spring time, the countryside is blooming, the weather is good for going on amazing hikes (like those to Su Gorropu) and we enjoy long walks on the beach. Spring is when Sant’Efisio, in Cagliari, takes place. A great free event. Fall is mild, and if we are lucky enough we get to go to the beach well into October. This is when the various village festivals are held. I love Cortes Apertas, and Autunno in Barbagia – food sampling, wine tasting, lots of great traditions. My favourite? Su Prugadoriu in Seui – our own very traditional version of Halloween. Finally, did you know that we even have a ski resort in Sardinia? Ok, it is not really a ski destination… but it is nice nonetheless.

One more reason to love Sardinia? The music festivals – jazz lovers will have a huge choice of places and events. And even the book festivals.

We call Sardinia paradise, and for a good reason!

      It actually is a world apart – completely different. Surely worth a visit!

    Wow such pretty photos! I definitely want to go. I had no idea that it was a great spot to go in all seasons, so that’s super helpful!

    I have heard so many things about Sardinia but have yet to visit even though I have been many times to Italy. I am a lover of all things jazz so it sounds like this is my kind of place after all.

    Sardinia looks like a great place and the beaches are so nice. You are lucky to be calling it home!
