About the location
North Sardinia is all about contrasts. If you’re the fly-and-flop type, you’ve got some of Italy’s finest beaches on your doorstep. Santa Teresa Gallura boasts white-sand bays, hidden coves and creeks, while the laid-back town of Palau is the gateway to the stunning Maddalena archipelago – a sprinkling of National Park islands with gin-clear waters and teeny flour-white beaches. For more adventurous sorts, nose inland and you’ll discover remote, rugged landscapes, plus cute little villages and towns that tend to fly off the radar of most visitors. One spot that boasts rural charm in spades is Oliena, an artisan town nestled at the foot of Monte Corrasi that’s filled with whitewashed houses and surrounded by olive groves. Finally, you’ve got the famous Costa Smeralda, a glamorous slice of the east coast popular with the yachting crowd – sip coffee at the glitzy marina, then hire a boat of your own to discover the pristine coves nearby.
Transfer time
1 hour from Olbia airport.
