The sea of ​​Sardinia is famous all over the world for its clear and crystalline waters, ideal for any type of diving and those who do diving know it well. Every corner of the Sardinian coast is in fact a unique place, where immersing yourself becomes an unmissable and incredible experience. All you need, in addition to the passion for underwater activities, is a diving suit and a camera to capture the wonderful backdrops, the colorful fish and crustaceans and even the red corals with their inlays illuminated by the sun's rays that penetrate in the water in depth.
With a staggering 2000 kilometers of coastline, Sardinia is one of the windier regions of Italy and a true mecca for windsurfing and kitesurfing enthusiasts, both beginner and advanced. As Sardinia has four main winds depending on the time of year, the best kitesurfing beaches are scattered around the island. Here’s our overview of some of the best kitesurfing beaches of Sardinia.

After a few hours in Sardinia it’s not hard to see why it is becoming increasingly popular with British birders. This Italian island – the second largest in the Mediterranean, has an abundance of species you just don’t see in the UK and they’re not difficult to find. We flew into Alghero, on the west coast, and set up base in the Bosa area, only 40 minutes from the airport and home to Sardinia’s two remaining colonies of Griffon Vultures. Finding the vulture colony is as easy as falling off a log, as just outside Bosa on the coast road is a pizzeria conveniently called the Grifone, even more conveniently there is a large layby just opposite where you can park up and scan the cliffs behind. We managed to get four birds soaring above as we pulled up.

Three Sardinian courses are well worth their national ranking. The first two, Pevero in Porto Cervo and Is Molas (Championship) in Santa Margherita du Pula are 1970s designs from Robert Trent Jones Snr. and Piero Mancinelli, respectively. The third course, Is Arenas, is of more recent vintage, having had its fairways literally carved out of a pine forest close to Narbolia by Robert von Hagge in 2000.
Picture the Aga Khan, anchored between Corsica and Sardinia in his luxury yacht. He stands on deck, beguiled by the emerald waters that would give the Costa Smeralda its name and thinks: “Here is where I will build my resort.” Thusly; tourism to Sardinia was born. Prince Karim Al Husseini, Imam of the world’s Ismailiti Muslims and a descendant of the prophet Mohammed, led an investment consortium here in the late 1950s, bringing luxury to the northerly tip of the island. Successive generations of celebrities followed – the haves and have-yachts – equally charmed by its pink granite coast and clear turquoise waters.
I nuovi trend nell’ambito del turismo, secondo un’indagine effettuata da Booking.com, prevedono un incremento dei viaggi a lungo raggio e un incremento dei viaggi verso mete meno ‘battute’, quali l’Iran, lo Sri Lanka o il Myanmar alla ricerca di esperienze sempre più ‘vere’ e sempre meno ‘confezionate’.

The ships dock at the Isola Bianca, 5 minutes walk from the seafront and Corso Umberto I which takes you to the center of Olbia. Do not miss the opportunity for a stopover in the tourist town, full of restaurants and shops of local handicrafts and typical products, main gateway to the North east of Sardinia

Con un clima piacevole anche in inverno, la Sardegna è una destinazione turistica ideale 365 giorni l’anno. Se potete evitate di andare in Sardegna nei mesi di luglio e agosto quando le città, le località balneari e le spiagge sono prese letteralmente d’assalto dalla maggior parte dei vacanzieri. L’inverno è sicuramente da depennare se siete interessati ai magnifici litorali sardi ma è il periodo ideale per visitare i musei e conoscere a fondo le tradizioni, la cucina sarda e le feste. Le estati sarde sono generalmente più lunghe di quelle continentali e ciò fa sì che i periodi migliori per visitare l’isola siano la primavera e l’inizio dell’autunno quando le temperature sono amabilmente calde e la maggior parte dell’isola è vuota. Se non amate la folla e voletevi godervi pienamente la vostra vacanza in Sardegna scegliere il periodo che va da aprile a giugno e da metà settembre a metà ottobre: le acque non saranno caldissime ma, al contrario, le spiagge vi appariranno come veri e propri paradisi terrestri e i prezzi saranno più contenuti. I mesi di gennaio, febbraio e marzo sono i più freddi e ventosi e perciò ideali solo per veri temerari.
