Whether you want to spend your days lounging on white sand beaches and savouring local delicacies or hiking through forests and discovering Bronze Age settlements, a holiday in Sardinia will not disappoint. The bay of Costa Smeralda, home to blue waters and chic bars, is perhaps the island’s most famous spot, but you should also make time for the more rugged Costa Verde and the islands of La Maddalena.

A holiday in Sardinia offers a wealth of opportunities for outdoor pursuits, from rambles along shoreline paths and through canyons to diving and windsurfing off the coast of Cagliari. But it is equally possible to live a gentle life here, with visits to the historic sites of Tiscali and Nuraghe Su Nuraxi followed by a few hours spent enjoying pasta, cheese and Sardinian wine.
