Heavenly beach vacation on Sardinia
The most important criteria for holiday makers on Sardinia are sun, beach and recreation. Numerous beautiful natural beaches shape the 1,800 kilometre long coastline of Sardinia and the azure blue sea provides a heavenly backdrop. The most beautiful beaches include those of the Costa Smeralda in the province Olbia-Tempio towards the north east of the island. Between Palau and Olbia many small bays with white sandy beaches are hidden between long stretched granite rocks. Here the villages Porto Cervo und Porto Rotondo are regarded as Europe’s best holiday domiciles. As each year national and international celebrities gather here for their summer holiday it is clear that properties will come at a price. Considerably less pricy and equally attractive is the Costa Rei along the eastern coast of Sardinia. The small bays and the long sandy beaches of the coastal area north of Sant'Elmo guarantee relaxing sun baths as well as entertainment including a wide range of water sports. Costa Paradiso is situated in the north of Sardinia lies and the name says it all. Many small bays are hidden between the red cliffs.
