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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Spiaggia La Cinta and Lu Impostu Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Cala Goloritzè and Cala Brandinchi. Get out of town with these interesting San Teodoro side-trips: Parco Museo S'Abba Frisca (in Dorgali), Prima Sardegna (in Cala Gonone) and Baunei (Grotta del Fico & Cala Mariolu). Next up on the itinerary: look for all kinds of wild species at Oasi Biderosa and step into the grandiose world of Castello della Fava.

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.
