Sardinia is a place where you can still have an idyllic vacation and discover wonderful places that lie off the beaten track. The island, which is elongated in shape, extends from north to south. The vegetation of Sardinia’s northern and southern regions varies quite a bit as do the island’s cultural traditions, and Sardinians have adapted to these differences in their natural environment. The best known area in Sardinia is Costa Smeralda with its unique small sandy beaches nestled among many different types of cliffs that border the coast’s numerous bays. Portobello, a cluster of lovely villas containing rental apartments, is typical of the accommodations available in the north of sardinia.
Located on Sardinia’s east coast a half hour south of Olbia, San Teodoro has reinvented itself. Once a simple fishing village, it is now a popular resort town. This is mainly attributable to the nearby beaches, particularly La Cinta with its superlative three kilometer-long stretch of white sand. Not far to the south on the SS125 you come upon Nuoro, the capital city of the eponymous province that extends across the center of Sardinia from the east to the west coasts. This is the region people head directly to when they’re interested in discovering Sardinia at its most genuine. Perdasdefogu is another place where visitors can discover the real Sardinia. Surrounded by ancient holm-oak trees, this village is nestled in the Sardinian mountains between the historic Oligastra and Salto de Quirra regions.

In contrast to Torresalinas, Costa Rei, which is located further to the south, has become a magnet for tourism but has lost none of its charm. Located about 50 km south of the island’s capital city of Cagliari, Costa Rei (“King’s coast”) offers visitors crystal clear waters that are almost surrealistically aquamarine in color, and long white sandy beaches. Villagio Rocca Sant' Elmo, which is nestled in an unspoiled natural area at the tip of Costa Rei, was built in the 1990s.
