Little Barcelona

Built surrounding a 16th-century fortified port, Alghero remains one of Sardinia's most visited sites, rich in cultural and historical heritage.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Alghero: Bagella Abbigliamento Sardo (in Sassari) and Stintino (Boat Tours & Water Sports, La Pelosa Beach, &more). Next up on the itinerary: Head underground at Frecce delle Grotte di Antonio Piccinnu, tour the pleasant surroundings at Spiaggia Mugoni, and enjoy the sand and surf at Spiaggia di Maria Pia.

For photos, traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Alghero journey builder app.

Barcelona, Spain to Alghero is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of ferry and bus. Plan for a bit cooler nights when traveling from Barcelona in July since evenings lows in Alghero dip to 21°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Sun) to allow time to drive to Baunei.

San Teodoro

A chance to sip cocktails at swanky beach bars by day and experience the vibrant club scene by night makes San Tedoro vacations extremely popular.

Sardinia travel guide

Beaches · Landmarks · Caves
Sardinia, with its Mediterranean atmosphere and charm, is loved by visitors looking for things to do outdoors on their holiday, like swimming, boating, windsurfing, hiking, climbing, and camping. Taking advantage of the island's near-perfect summer weather, visitors tend to overcrowd Sardinia's coastal areas. The inner life of the island, away from the most popular vacation spots, remains largely unblemished by mass tourism and commercialization. Sardinia is steeped in history and has a colorful character quite different from the rest of Italy. This is where the ancient Nuragic society, whose stone monuments still litter the land, flourished more than three millennia ago--predating the Etruscan civilization in mainland Italy by several hundred years. Sardinia's seaside resorts may be among the best in the world, but its quieter and more interesting countryside offers a greater array of attractions, including a patchwork of forests, citrus groves, and medieval villages.
