Encased by the majestic Tavolara Island on one side and the exotic paradise of Corsica on the other, there’s little wonder why Olbia is Sardinia’s top destination! It’s the go-to port when it comes to natural beauty. There are so many beaches and pristine white lagoons popping up all along the Gulf of Cannigione, making a holiday to the emerald coast your very own Sardinian idyll!
Move beyond the town and you’ll encounter sand so white it shimmers and the sea surging with green Mediterranean waves. The views are only interrupted by the looming islet of Tavolara, with its jagged spine trailing over a huge lump of rock. At first sight, it looks like a lone dinosaur curled up on a calm sea of toy boats and houses, ending with an immaculate strip of white sand.
Sardinia is an island of spectacular impressions. The Greeks called it “Ichnusa” or “footprint” – when Zeus created the earth, he threw the remaining pieces into the sea and stepped down on them: voilà, Sardinia! The Sacred Well of Sa Testa is an awesome example of past treasures: empty courtyards and enchanting stones lay underneath the sun as the land’s eternal mystery.
