Longest northern route

If you don’t have many days to visit Sardinia, the best thing you can do is follow an itinerary where you can see the best places on the island. What we recommend is that you make the most of the northern area, which is the most beautiful. One of the best ways to do it is by taking a route that runs through Alghero, Porto Torres, Castelsardo, Santa Teresa di Gallura and Olbia.

Alghero

Alghero

One of the obligatory stops on the route is Alghero and its surroundings. In addition to finding beautiful beaches located in the same city, here you will enjoy a beautiful old town. You can visit the Catholic Church of San Francisco, the Sulis tower and the shops, and you should not miss the Neptune Caves , which you can reach by boat. A 50-minute drive away is Bosa, a small town that in addition to offering a beautiful wide beach, has an old town that is worth visiting. In addition, here you will find the ruins of the Serravalle castle, located at the top of the mountain.

Castelsardo, Capo Testa and Costa Paradiso

Another essential visit is that of Castelsardo, a small town founded in the year 1,100 that preserves its medieval castle. Nearby is the Valledoria village, where you will find San Pietro beach, a sandy area of ​​immense beauty. On the other hand, you should know that just 5 kilometers from Santa Teresa di Gallura , is Capo Testa, where you will find huge granite structures. And before reaching the town you can enjoy a beautiful beach: Rena Mojore. Also from Santa Teresa di Gallura you can visit Monica Island. In fact, boat trips are highly recommended, especially those that go through the Magdalena Archipelago and the Tavolara Island Marine Reserve.

Santa Teresa di Gallura

Shortest northern route

If the route that we mentioned before seems too long, it is also a good idea that from Alghero you go directly to Sassari and, from here, you go to Oschiri. The last stop will be Olbia , from where you can enjoy the beautiful beaches and villages of the Costa Smeralda and the southern beaches of Olbia, one of the most important cities on the island, which is also famous for its exclusive spas. Also in the north you will find the beautiful Costa Paradiso, which stretches for 8 kilometers.

Other excursions

If you still have time and you want to rest from the beach one day, we also recommend that you visit the interior of the northeast of the island, where you will find spectacular granite landscapes and a valuable Neolithic heritage. A good idea is to start the tour from Sassari. Thus, you can rest on the beach from one day to another. Other places on the island that are worth a visit are the Golfo Aranci, the coastal path to the south, Dorgali, Cala Ganone, Cala Goloritze, Cala Luna, Arbatax, Santa María Navarrese, the archaeological site Sa Pedralonga, Cagliari, Villasimiuis and the towns Nora and Pula.
