Sardinia Road Trip

I've just come back from my holiday on the road in Sardinia. What a wonderful trip! 

Our journey started in Olbia and ended in Cagliari. We had such a great time in all the cities and beaches we visited. 

Budoni: a little gem of the Baronie Area on the north eastern coast of Sardinia.
We spent the first two days of our trip in the amazing Hotel Pedra Ruja. The residence is situated in a stunning panoramic position. From the window of our room we could admire Agrustos, Porto Ottiolu and the island of Tavolara.

Dorgali and Cala Gonone. Dorgali is a very small village in the province of Nuoro. In Dorgali we stayed at the lovely Sa Corte Antica that we found on AirBnB. We literally felt in love with this b&b. The rooms open onto an old courtyard and have been recently refurbished keeping a certain rustic charm.

From Cala Gonone it is possible to go for a boat excursion that allows you to admire the magnificent coast of the Gulf of Orosei. It makes three stops of about two hours each in the most beautiful beaches Cala Luna, Biriola and Mariolu or Cala dei Gabbiani. Our boat also stopped at the Grotta del Bue Marino, which I really recommend you to see. 

We then travelled towards Villasimius/San Vito, stopping at Arbatax, the largest hamlet of Tortolì. Arbatax is famous for being one of the most beautiful beaches of Ogliastra and for the characteristic red rocks, a cliff of red porphyry, which is located near the harbor, behind the east pier.

We also had a delicious dinner in Tortolì at Ittiturismo Arbatax where we had what seemed like an endless supply of fresh seafood. If I could have returned to this place again during my stay, I surely would have!

We then arrived at San Vito, where we stayed at Simona's House found on Airbnb as well. During our stay in San Vito we went to Costa Rei and Punta Molentis. Two beautiful beaches with white sand and crystal clear water.

What a wonderful holiday! If you are planning to go on holiday in Sardinia and you need more information, feel free to contact me. :)
