  1. Kia ora Clelia,
    You’ve made my day by taking the hard work out of planning our trip to Sardinia in May next year. As keen hikers from New Zealand we’ll definitely be basing ourselves in the Golfo di Orosei, Cala Gonone, and Baunei and taking in the major hikes and sight you have recommended. We have 9 full days in Sardinia and fly into and out of Cagliari where we plan on hiring a car. My question is: should we head directly up the Golfo di Orosei and spend the 9 days in that region or take in a few days driving up and back visiting towns and sites. If so what and where would you recommend? We both enjoy hiking food and wine and the local culture.
    Again many thanks for all your hard work on your site.
    Kind Regards Yvonne

      Hi Yvonne! I’m glad I could help you with your trip! As per your question, given that you love hiking, food and wine and also visiting local villages, Orosei is PERFECT as it really has it all! So since you have 9 days I would go straight there, set a base and explore the surrounding areas. Not sure whether you have already read it but I have an interesting article on things to do in the area (it says Cala Gonone but everything is relatively close in there). You can check it out in here.

      Hope this helps and have a great time in my beautiful island!! 🙂

  2. Hi Clelia!
    I just stumbled upon your webpage a couple of days ago and I must say that I truly find it to be inspirational! 🙂 I need some of your Sardinia expertise to plan my trip. My sister and I were thinking of traveling to Alghero for 1 week in mid-September and and follow some of your travel tips. However, I have a concern regarding traveling from Alghero to La Bombarde beach, La Pelosa beach, Stintino and Bosa/Bosa Marina without car, since neither one of us have a driver’s license (we live in a city where the need for it isn’t essential).
    Is it even possible to visit some of these places without a car?
    Are taxi fares high in Sardinia?
    Is the sea water still warm in mid-September?
    Is Grotto di Nettuno worth a visit?
    And lastly, how are the vegetarian food options in Sardinia? 🙂
    I’m very grateful for advice from you. Thanks in advance!

  3. Clelia hello again!
    Do you have any idea of a place to rent a car in Cagliari without the need for any deposit? All the places I have found request a deposit around 1000€!!
    Thank you very much.

      Hi Leonor,

      It really depends where are you booking your properties, if it’s through privates they might ask that much, but always be careful! What I can suggest is that you book via Booking.com as they have very good deals also for Villas and apartments in Cagliari, or AirBnb even if I’ve never used it so I am not sure on how reliable it is.
      I hope it helped!

      Clelia

      1. Clelia thank you for your answer. However, I was asking about renting a car, not properties!
        Many thanks,
        Leonor

          Hi Leonor, sorry! I saw the 1000 euros deposit and my mind must have gone to the properties. Where did they ask you that much?! It’s not usually that amount… very weird. All the people who booked their cars via my website paid a small amount, depending on how many days they needed the car. If you want, you can rent a car directly at the airport with the usual car companies. In my opinion, besides the small difference of prices they are almost the same. Being August I’d recommend you book the car beforehand as you might find out that the one you need might not be available and they will let you rent a pricier option.

          If it were off season I would have suggested renting directly in here, but not in peak season. Did you check out how much would you pay using rental car? (I have the banner on the side of the page), I know for sure that the deposit is never as high as 1000 euros!

  4. Hi Clelia,

    thank you for this great blog, lots of useful information! 🙂

    I was wondering whether you could help me find out if it’s allowed to set up a private barbecue on a beach in Sardinia? We are going there in August and we’ll spent 2 nights in Alghero and then drive south to Cagliari. I tried to find some information online but didn’t succeed (either there is no information or it might be in Italian which I unfortunately don’t speak).

    I would be grateful for any information.

    Thank you,
    Martina

      Hi Martina, Honestly i don’t think it’s possible to set up barbeques on the beach anymore in Sardinia. Itìs against the law. This is not something we use to do, and the rules are pretty strict to preserve the beauty and integrity of the beaches.

      Cheers
      Clelia

  5. Hey

    Just randomly came across your page!! love it 🙂

    We are travelling to Sardinia (Olbia Airport) in August for 3 days. Any ideas where we could go to? Someone close to beaches, relax, good food and chill. Not sure if I need to hire a car for 3days? but open to that option also. Budget not an issue either. Was recommended Purto Cervo, but not so sure now..

    Please advice, what do you recommend.

    thank you

      Hi Michael, Thanks for your nice words 🙂
      Please consider that if you want to relax in August… your only option is to stay in a resort/hotel with a private beach! If you really just want to relax and have only 3 days, the Costa Smeralda Area is a good place to be if the budget is not an issue. Maybe rent a car for 1 day and go to Palau for the amazing boat trip to Arcipelago della Maddalena. I can’t recommend that boat trip enough!

      Not sure whether you have already checked out my other article “Sardinia for couples” (it is actually a massive guide for everyone, not just couples) and I have an entire section dedicated to Porto Cervo, what do do, where to stay and where to eat.

      I hope this helps!
      Cheers

      Clelia

      1. Hi Clelia

        We start our trip in Sardegna this saturday 6th in Alghero with your friend Gabriella. We’ll be 3 days and the on wednesday we have already booked a place in orosei. What do you suggest us for tuesday? any place between alghero and orosei? we are not sure if we are going to fancy too much porto Cervo..Any other place with a bit of nightlife and good food for example? thanks in advance

        1. Post
          Author

          Hi Andrea, glad you are going with Gabriella! If you don’t think you’d like Porto Cervo too much, why don’t you make a stop in Santa Teresa di Gallura? The village is super nice and lively and the beaches nearby are also super beautiful. I had another reader who recently came back from a 2 week holiday in that area and they had a great time in there! From Santa Teresa to Orosei you will pass via Olbia and then the usual route so it’s not a huge detour. Another option is San Teodoro, fantastic beaches and nightlife/restaurants and on the way to Orosei. I think these 2 options will be the best for you!

          I hope you’ll have a great time in Sardinia

          Cheers
          Clelia

  6. Ciao Clelia!!!I love your blog. I contacted you last year but finally we couldn’t manage to go to Sardegna, but..2016 will be our year for that!! I know you are really busy, but I hope you can help me a bit.
    We are almost sure that will be arriving in Cagliari Friday 5th august 10.00 pm and go back home from Alghero monday 15th 6.35 am (ahh). We could also return from Cagliari but we think the north of Sardegna worths so much!!!

    What would you suggest us to do: Cagliari – Golfo di Orisei – Stintino – Alghero??? Is it to much? We don’t mind if you change fully our itinerary. As we like also sports and hikking, I have contacted also Break to Sardinia; they are great and also found them in your website. Thanks for that reference, but I don’t know if we could do something with them this year or maybe we have to leave it for the near future

    Grazie mile!!
    Andrea

  7. Hi Clelia!

    Amazing website. You look great, where were you when
    I was free & lonely..! Thank fa lot for your website/blogg to start with.
    We are planning to travel to Sardinien from 29/7 for a week.
    We have a direkt flight from Stockholm to Olbia.
    We are a famliy of 3, a teen of15 yrs.
    I found a room in Stintino Hotel Calla Reale via your website but
    it’s a driving distance of 2 hours I fear.
    Could you please recommend what to do if we choose in stead
    to stay in Olbia at hotel Double Tree Olbia? Other hotels around clos to sandy beaches?
    Beaches without a lots of people around Olbia?
    Other tips/tricks are also very welcomed
    & appreciated.

    By the way I saw your video clipp from Phillipines, beautiful!
    Have you been to Maldives, Bora Bora, La diegue-Seychelles.
    There are also not less than true Paradises..!

    Thanks a lot in advance.
    Warmest regards.

      Hi Ahmed! Thanks a lot for your comment, I’m so glad I was able to help you a bit 🙂 From Olbia to Stintino you have to drive a bit yes, but the Hotel you’ve chosen is great, one of the most popular in the area actually as most of the people who check out my blog posts in the end book in there! To be honest, I wouldn’t change the reservation to go to Olbia for a few reasons:
      1) Stintino is a lovely village and much more relaxing for a holiday than staying in Olbia, it is going to be a bit crowded in July but less than Olbia as you would be close to the super touristy beaches of Costa Smeralda and San Teodoro. Lovely, don’t get me wrong but in my opinion, the whole area in summer reflects less of the Sardinian vibe than Stintino.

      2) In Sardinia we are pretty used to drive for a while to reach the best beaches on a day trip, so if you are already in Stintino you could not only visit La Pelosa beach (awesome and if you wake up early you will have the advantage of finding less people in the morning, let’s say around 8am), while in Olbia the beaches will be rather crowded almost everywhere in July).

      So all in all, If you want a relaxed week with your family I’d go for Stintino! The only “downside” is the 2 hours drive from the airport but as I said, for Sardinian people driving 2 hours to get to the beach is really not a big deal, especially if you don’t do it every day 🙂

      I’m glad you liked my video about the Philippines, they are awesome!! And I actually went to the Seychelles recently (I posted a few pictures of my experience in there on my Instagram account here) as you can see…It’s a real Paradise, and coming from Sardinia I’m super picky with beaches! Never been to Bora Bora or the Maldives, but I’ll get there one day!!)

      Thanks again for your super nice comment!! I hope you’ll have a great time in Sardinia 🙂 These days is a bit windy in here but today is a very sunny and pleasant day!!

      Cheers
      Clelia
