Quick Look at Sardinia

Quick Look at Sardinia

I’ve just got back from Sardinia where I spent more than two weeks. There is a lot of stories to tell and hundreds of pictures to share but I can tell you one sure thing: a variety of landscapes and attractions in Sardinia is amazing! It is a wonderful beach destination and all sand & sea fans will find themselves in a paradise. Even within beach business you will find an extreme variety. From white sand and pristine water, through stones and rocks up to the beaches surrounded by high peaks with monuments on top of them.

Further, if you are a fan of industrial historical sites you will find yourself in Sardinia like a fish in the water. A widespread mining industry that collapsed more than 50 years ago left here its marks.

Sardinia is also a wonderful playground for long and short trekkings with spectacular views.

Sardinia means also culture and tradition and what I found delightful the sort of tradition still kept alive by the locals. Through the folklore groups, music bands, and religious feasts’ celebration the culture in Sardinia is easy to trace.

I was lucky to participating in one of the biggest feasts in Sardinia organized August 15th and devoted to Virgin Mary.

And above all Sardinia surprised me to be just a perfect site to watch the stars.

About the author

I get easily fascinated with people and places. I am passionately curious. I get often seduced with the beauty of nature. Blue sky, pure water, white snow and endless horizon seams to be enough to make me happy.

    Sardinia along with Corsica has always been on my wish list for a bike trip. Love the drama of the coastlines and hope I see it for myself one day.

If you google images of Sardegna it looks stunning. Actually quite close for us so you made me rethink our upcoming travel plans…

  • Love Sardinia! I’ve been there 3 years ago and I was really impressed by their culture and beautiful beaches. We rented a zodiac to spend a whole day at Maddalena Island and it was an amazing experience! Surrounded by pristine waters!!
