Sardinia itinerary 7 days
DAY 1/2: Alghero and surroundings
Starting from Alghero, it is of absolute importance to visit not only the Catalan town, a beautiful historic center , but also the outline present in that area from Capo Caccia to Bosa. The itinerary we recommend is a route that goes from the north up to Bosa (about 45 km from Alghero), you will have the opportunity to see some of the most beautiful beaches like in the area hospital , some natural pools present in the coastal road to the south, small beaches along the road and also admire one of the most authentic villages in Sardinia, precisely Bosa. It will take you a couple of days, even having time, possibly, to do some activities in case of favorable weather conditions such as surfing, kite surfing, wind surfing since the west and north west are the most exposed to the wind that dominates the island, the mistral. Not only that, if you rely on us, you will have the opportunity to have local contacts for other spectacular activities such as horseback riding , trekking , boat tours and much more.
DAY 3: Stintino and surroundings
The third day is dedicated to a first visit to Stintino , with the beautiful Pelosa in relief. Remember one very important thing, book your place through the dedicated website, for a couple of years the entrance to the beach has been reserved for a maximum of 1500 people per day (cost € 3.50 per person). You can spend the night there in the area or move towards Castelsardo , another beautiful village in Sardinia and absolutely worth seeing.
DAY 4/5: Capo Testa and surroundings
From the central area, move north-east and visit Capo Testa . The main town in the area is Santa Teresa di Gallura and it will be fantastic to discover an incredible number of small coves and extraordinary valleys, one above all Valle Della Luna (valley of the hippies). Discovering the coast up to Palau , there are remote areas still unknown to most Sardinians, such as a small cove that was closed and militarized until 15 years ago. After a couple of days discovering this coastal part, our itinerary suggestion continues in the Olbia area.
DAY 6/7: Olbia and surroundings
There are many locations to visit but it is clear that you cannot do everything. The first day I would dedicate to discovering the Maddalena archipelago or at least part of it. We absolutely recommend a boat tour, you will go to admire coves with crystal clear sea where it will be a pleasure to dive and cool off during a hot day. The last day instead to be dedicated to a particular area, is located near Cala Girgolu and represents an authentic pearl of the north east part of the island.
