Help with Sardegna itinerary!

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone! I’m traveling to Sardegna with two girlfriends for about 10 days in early July. Unfourtunately, we wont be renting a car (I know it would be better if we could, but sadly none of us have our licenses!)
We are taking a ferry from Genova to Porto Torres and heading straight over to Alghero (still haven’t decided whether to stay in a campsite or hostel). We’ll stay in Alghero for three nights, with day trips to La Pelosa, l’Asinara island and le Grotte del Nettuno. Then we’ll head over east, stopping one night in Santa Teresa de Gallura so that we can visit valle della luna (still not exactly sure how to get to the valle though, though I heard that from Capo Testa/Cala Spinosa you can walk). Next stop: Palau or Cannigione and a day boat/kayak trip of the islands Maddalena. On our way to Olbia/San Teodoro (not sure which of the two), maybe swing by Porto Cervo for a couple of hours just to see what it’s like. We then want to head in land for a day, maybe to Orgosolo or Mammaoiada...we were thinking of doing the Gorrupu trek but that might be too much, since we want to spend ½ days exploring the gulf of Orosei (we were thinking of kayaking instead of renting a boat…would it still be possble to see Cala Goloritze, Cala Mariolu, Cala Luna). Is it better to stay in Orosei or Arabtax (advantage there being we can then take the trenino verde/little green train south). FInal stop, Villasimius/Cagliari for 2 nights.

Any advice or suggestions would be very much appreciated!!

    That is a huge amount a travel and activity for ten days. We have visited Sardinia many times but always with a car and have never used public transport and so could not comment on whether the timings of your routes is sensible in ten days.

    In terms of the route I would not cut back to Alghero but stay near Porto Torres for one night on arrival. The town itself is very industrial but around 10 miles north there is a huge beach and many, many campsites next to the beaches. From there Castelsardo is worth a visit.

    I would base yourself in Santa Teresa for 4 nights and from there you could take the ferry to Corsica, Bonifacio is stunning and well worth a visit.

    It is fairly easy to get to the Maddalena islands and again they are beautiful.

    Avoid staying in Olbia, again it is industrial and yes, pop into Porto Cervo to see the other living. It will not be that busy as August is the only really busy time. There are some stunning beaches south of here on Cala di Volpe.

    From here I would spend a couple of days in the Golfo Orosei, boat trips here are easy to find and there is plenty of sealife.

    I wold not worry to much about finding accommodation as early July is still not too busy. August is just ridiculously busy but the time you are visiting is just before Italy closes for its holiday.
