Aquarium-clear waters, white talc-soft sand, impossibly pink sunsets and smoky lobster BBQ. You don’t need to travel to the other side of the world for an island experience. Sardinia has the dreamy beaches, the gorgeously friendly people, the laid-back island vibe, delicious cuisine and more...
Teetering on the edge of a craggy hill overlooking the enchanting Mediterranean Sea, the town of Lu Bagnu feels like the Sardinia of old – a place where time floats by in a haze of sun, cocktails and pasta. As you stroll along the steep streets, you suddenly come to a lavender-topped ridge, where a path stretches down to golden creamy sands washed by Bombay Sapphire waters. Here, local boys leap from sun-warmed rocky slaps into unruffled waters, so blissful for snorkelling the colourful reefs.
You’ll be introduced to island hospitality from the moment you arrive at the family-friendly PH hotel. Whether it’s drinking cocktails at the much-loved little bar in the private pool, island hopping on the fully crewed boats or taking a short stroll to the hotel’s Smart Beach to catch the sunset (WiFi available for each umbrella), you’re free to explore your new home at your own pace.
Culture lovers will be in their element in the nearby medieval town of Castelsardo – from the hilltop castle to the cathedral, on the island of Sardinia you’re discover a unique history.
