Hire a car in Sardinia

Sardinia can feel amazingly exotic and rather un-Italian.

Closer to North Africa than the Italian mainland, it is the second largest island in the Mediterranean sea – roughly the size of Wales.

While most people come for the white sand and emerald waters, which line the island’s edges, its mountainous interior is well worth a visit. Exploring the inland likely means escaping some of the resort crowds too and discovering the island’s unique heritage.

Coastal heaven

Sardinian beaches

With so many beautiful beaches, it can be difficult to decide which ones to visit. Beaches in the north are often made up of smaller coves with particularly turquoise water. The northeast amazes with rock formations and the south beaches share the horizon with mountains and seaside cliffs.

Hiring a car is the easiest way to discover your favourite escape, as public transport doesn’t cover routes to many of the best beaches. Here are a couple exceptional sandy stretches to add to your route:

La Pelosa – one of, if not the most popular destination, it can can get very crowded in the summer but for good reason.

Costa Smeralda – with 80 bays and coves, and waters that are more of a glistening green than blue, the “Emerald Coast” is captivating place to explore.
