Sardinia

Surrounded by turquoise seas, equidistent from Tunis, Rome and Monaco, lies the Mediterranean's second largest island. Sardinia's magnificent coastline is its best asset, from cosy rocky inlets to vast strands; the golden beaches are caressed by azure waters. Sardinia is an Italian island of untold delights and amazing natural beauty plus plenty of celebrity appeal.

Food & Drink

Sardinian fare has similarities to Italian cuisine, though there are dishes that even visitors from Rome wouldn't recognise, Sardinia has some amazing seafood restaurants but traditionally the preference is for heartier dishes sourced from the mountains; look out for tender young lamb, roast suckling pig and goat.

Shopping

Shopping in Sardinia is a delightful experience, Sardinians are rightly proud of their fine, flowery honey, which is often sold in the many souvenir shops around the island.

INSIDERS TIP

If your going to Sardinia in August, expect to see many firework displays on the beaches as the Italians celebrate their national holiday, Ferragosto.
