SARDINIA BY CAR: The Ultimate Guide On How To Get Around The Island!



Do you want to get around Sardinia by Car?


Thanks for stopping by! I’m currently working (very hard) on the Sardinia section and this page will be completed soon. For now, I’m working on the Sardinia Maps to show you how to get to the main attractions, beaches, and cities, and I will fill out all the details you need to discover Sardinia by hiring a car.

 

In this article I will talk about:


  • Sardinia main Roads conditions, useful info, and maps
  • The distance between the main Sardinia Airports and how to get there.
  • How to get From Cagliari, Olbia and Alghero airports to the main attractions in Sardinia.

 

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: 

I’m still working on the article  so the info you’ll  find are referred to another article (not related to Sardinia), I need to change the info once I’m done with the maps that are a lot of work 🙂 If you want to know when the article is ready, please subscribe here and I will inform you via email.

Thanks for your patience!

Hello Clelia,
Im travelling with all my family (6 of us) in June , we are going from Peru, so there is not many information around here about travelling around Sardinia. We are flying to Olbia´s airport on June 30th arriving around 3 pm and we stay there until July 1st. We just want to have a week full of beach, relax and drinks around the isle. Can you recommend wich itinerary will be best for us considering this? Also good hotels front beach.

Thanks a lot!!

Mahmoud

Hi,
We are spending 4 days in Cala ganone, we are staying in hotel villa gustui Maris.

Please me know how to move around without a car.

Thanks,

Jakob

Hi Clelia, My wife and I are traveling to Sardinia in August (yes, I know: worst time, but that’s when we could do it.) We only have Sunday-Friday, and we land in Cagliari Friday night. I was thinking of driving up to Oristano, then across to the Orosei area, and then down again to Cagliari and fly home Friday around noon. Does that sound too ambitious to you? Would you focus on a smaller area? What we’re hoping to get out of the trip is: a) great beaches and vistas, b) quaint, beautiful villages, and c) nice food and relaxation.… Read more »

Hi Clelia. Your blog has inspired us to come to Sardinia on holiday, unfortunately due to work restrictions we have to travel during the peak season (August). We are looking to spend our first 4 nights in Cala Gonone and the last 3 up near Palau, we will hire a car to travel between the 2 areas, and also to explore during our week on the island.
Please can you advise any must-see beaches which are less likely up be absolutely rammed in peak season, we would particularly like to try snorkelling.
Thank you

Mark

I’m travelling to cagliari at the end of September and looking to rent a car for a couple of days, I’m wondering where is cheapest and best, I don’t want it straight away and wondered if travelling from the city centre back to the airport is to much hassle? Any feedback would be great thanks

Mojca Babič, Slovenia

Ciao! Ti scrivo dalla Slovenia. Prego cortesamente di aiutarmi. Io con i miei amici saremmo in Sardegna nella terza settimana di ottobre. Dal 14-16 ottobre dovremmo eserci per tre giorni fissi in Olbia per lavoro. Per il resto vorremo passare ancora tre/quatro giorni prima o dopo a visitare Sardegna. Pensavamo di prendere un rent a car. Possiamo combinare il volo per Cagliari o Alghero. Cosa consigli di visitarci? Ci piace buon cibo, vedere qualcosa di interessante, se e possibile (per via della stagione/ottobre) farci un bel bagno in mare sardo. Dove pernottare? Siamo 2 coppie. Grazie e scusami per l’italiano:)… Read more »

Ciao! Dal 21 al 27 Giugno io e il mio compagno verremo in Sardegna, arrivo a P.Torres e partenza da Olbia. Abbiamo l’auto e quindi possiamo spostarci, ma nonostante l’imbarazzo della scelta e la voglia di vedere quanti più posti possibili, vorremmo evitare di farci una vacanza “in macchina”.
Premesso che vorremmo passare mesi in ogni singola caletta, abbiamo bisogno di relax, buon cibo e bel mare dove fare snoorkeling. Dove ci consigli di fare tappa? Due o tre notti a Stintino? E le altre? Grazie in anticipo e complimenti per il sito! Francesca
