The Italian island of Sardinia is a place of contrasts. From the rugged, beach dotted coastline to the mountains topped with snow, it is a place of variety and activity. Whether you’re looking for a quiet beach side holiday or you’re heading out to the island with activity on your mind, you will find something here to suit you and your tastes. Ranging from both summer and winter, there are always things going on and things you’re able to take part in, regardless of the season!
Cruises, Beach side and Relaxation
Sardinia boasts thousands of miles of fantastic coastline, absolutely ideal for those looking to enjoy the water or beaches. If you’re looking to get out and around on the water, there is the opportunity to rent or join cruises going up and down the coast from north to south, passing terracotta roof lined cities at the waters edge as you go. For those looking to just soak up the sun, sea and sand, the myriad of beaches accessible on all sides of the island offer some excellent choices for whiling the days away at the water’s edge. The best string of beaches is along the Emerald Coast, which is 55 kilometres of pristine white sand, bright blue seas and features multiple coves and bays such as Spiaggia di Principe and Capriccioli beach – both idyllic for those looking to just relax and enjoy the seaside.
Skiing the Sardinian Slopes
Skiing is another big activity in Sardinia, attracting loads of people each year to hit its famous mountains for some fun in the powder. You can get to a ski resort via Paramount Business Jets. Despite the small number of ski resorts on the island, they are well equipped and offer fair prices ranging from 10 to 20 euros for day passes and feature elevations from 1300 to 1820 metres, which is perfect for all levels of experience. The proximity of the slopes to one another also means that you can visit all four slopes on your ski holiday and get the most out of your time on the hill. You can additionally combine a skiing holiday to Sardinia with skiing holidays in other parts of northern Italy by taking advantage of the great ferry services offered in Olbia to Naples, and then head north to a few of the well known areas in the Alps such as Turin for more challenging slopes, not to mention the cultural delights to be had, including delicious coffees and wines. Ensure you take adequate winter gear though as despite it being a Mediterranean climate, it does get quite snowy!
So as you can see, Sardinia is a fantastic place to go to get in a variety of activities, spanning both summer and winter, alongside the unique cultural variations there are on offer in the form of food, music, and wine. Any trip to Sardinia is an exciting one, with lots of opportunities to take life at your own pace and really get into the island life. Pack your bags – next stop, Sardinia!
