This is the busiest week of the summer in Italy. On 15 August we celebrate Ferragosto, and literally everyone is on holidays. Beaches are crowded, and traffic to get there busy. But once you get there, this is what you get to enjoy - at least in Sardinia. One more reason to love my island ๐Ÿ˜

Marching on the beach

As any proper island, Sardinia is quite windy. That means it's perfect for water sports like surfing, windsurfing and kite surfing.

When a heatwave makes it impossible to do anything, we in Sardinia go to the beach!

There's a few common misconceptions about Sardinia that I'd like to break. The first is that it's expensive to travel here. It isn't, it's as expensive as the rest of Italy and cheaper than many other places in Europe. A bit of smart and advanced planning, i.e. booking flights or ferries in advance, helps. Just as avoiding travel in the super peak month (August). The other is that Sardinia is all about beaches. Yes, beaches here as the best one may find in the world. And I've been posting mostly beach pictures because it's summer. But there's so much more here - the nature, cities and villages, archeological sites, food, wine (top quality wine) and beer, cultural events and festivals and the glorious hikes. If you decide to visit, you know who to ask!

This heat wave has me melting. I'd better jump in the water. How's your weekend going?

Villasimius is at one hour drive from Cagliari and has some of the best beaches in Sardinia.

When the beach is way better than a pool, you're probably in Sardinia!

I absolutely love walking on the beach, especially when I can also jump in the clearest waters! I took this photo at Oasi Biderosa, on the east coast of Sardinia

Calamosca is the second most important beach in Cagliari, Sardinia. Right behind the beach, there's an easy trail that offers splendid views over Poetto beach and the salt ponds.

Cagliari has a great urban beach that is easily reached with public transportation. It's where we love to hang out in the summer, and any time the weather is nice. There's a great waterfront too for running and biking.

Not far from Chia, at one hour drive from Cagliari, this tiny beach can only be reached on a short hike. It's simply gorgeous!
  • ๐Ÿ˜ 6
Right after sunset at Chia, in Sardinia. When most of the people leave, kiosks turn the music on and prepare cocktails. What's better than having a drink with a beautiful sunset view?

I love hanging at the beach just when the sun is about to set. The light is special! I took this in Chia, at about one hour drive from Cagliari

Today I visited the beautiful Basilica di Saccargia, in the north of Sardinia. It's a gorgeous small church totally immersed in the countryside, just a small detour on the way from Sassari to Cagliari

Ghandruk is a lovely village in the mountains of Nepal. I visited as part of my hike of the Poon Hill Circuit. It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. If you haven't been to Nepal yet, go!!

One thing I love about Cagliari is that it's by the sea and on the hills. That means there's many view point from where there's a fantastic panorama. Photographed here, a view of the harbor and Largo Carlo Felice from the terrace of Libarium, in Castello

Some of the best beaches in Sardinia can only be reached by boat or via a hike. That's how I discovered the splendid Cala Antoniareddu. It's about 45 minutes drive from Cagliari to Cala Cipolla (another lovely beach) and then a two hours hike on an incredibly scenic trail

Perdalonga is another beautiful beach at about 1 hr drive from Cagliari, Sardinia main city. Clear water, gone sand and Mediterranean vegetation around. What else could I possibly need?

Cala Pira is a lovely small beach at about one hour drive from Cagliari, Sardinia capital. Clear waters, a Spanish watch tower for stunning views... can it get better than that?

Did you know that Cagliari has an incredible urban beach? Well now you do! It is called Poetto. It's possible to get breathtaking views of it on a short and easy urban hike that starts in Calamosca.

This seagull lives in the Castello quarter of Cagliari. He enjoys stealing food from people sitting at tables and having drinks and snacks. We're pretty sure he wants to run for elections as the new mayor ๐Ÿ˜‚

The harbor in Cagliari always offers amazing photo opportunities. Took this yesterday while on a stroll in the city. Have you been to Sardinia?
