Sardinia is part of Italy and separated from the mainland by the Tyrrhenian Sea. Several ferry links connect the paradise-like island with Italian ports. Only a few kilometres to the north lies the French island Corsica. This is an ideal destination for a day trip. Alternatively atraveo offers a large selection of holiday homes on Corsica.
Heavenly beach vacation on Sardinia
The most important criteria for holiday makers on Sardinia are sun, beach and recreation. Numerous beautiful natural beaches shape the 1,800 kilometre long coastline of Sardinia and the azure blue sea provides a heavenly backdrop. The most beautiful beaches include those of the Costa Smeralda in the province Olbia-Tempio towards the north east of the island. Between Palau and Olbia many small bays with white sandy beaches are hidden between long stretched granite rocks. Here the villages Porto Cervo und Porto Rotondo are regarded as Europe’s best holiday domiciles. As each year national and international celebrities gather here for their summer holiday it is clear that properties will come at a price. Considerably less pricy and equally attractive is the Costa Rei along the eastern coast of Sardinia. The small bays and the long sandy beaches of the coastal area north of Sant'Elmo guarantee relaxing sun baths as well as entertainment including a wide range of water sports. Costa Paradiso is situated in the north of Sardinia lies and the name says it all. Many small bays are hidden between the red cliffs.
Discover from a holiday home the area away from the beaches
Enough of sun bathing at the beach? Then you could go and discover the sights of Sardinia. For example you could visit the many picturesque towns and villages, such as the capital Cagliari in the south or Sassari on the north side of the island. Discover the natural sights of the enchanting landscape such as the countless limestone caves and grottos or the red rocks of Arbatax. Or visit the mysterious towers of the Nuraghen culture which lived on the island in pre-Christian times. Especially worth seeing is the Su Nuraxi complex in the province Medio Campidano. Also worthwhile is a trip to the rugged Gennargenta Mountains in the heartland of the island. The island’s highest peak is the 1,834 metre high Punta la Marmona and can even be reached by ski lift so that during appropriate weather conditions you can swap the beach with the snow. Generally the island is ideal for an active vacation with discoveries and excursions possible throughout the year. Away from the main streets there are various great hiking and mountain bike tours available. You are able to explore beautiful beaches which can only be reached via farm lanes and the additional benefit is the places are secluded providing a charming ambience. Also worth a visit is the neighbouring French island Corsica which is just 12 kilometres to the north. Ferries regularly operate from Santa Teresa Gallura to Bonifacio and from Palau to Porto-Vecchio.
Travel and mobility on the ground on Sardinia
You can either travel by plane or ship to Sardinia. Those who want to travel with their own car can choose one of the ferries that operate between the Italian mainland and Porto Torres, Olbia, Arbatax and Cagliari on Sardinia. Ports on the mainland include Genoa at the Ligurian Riviera, Livorno in Tuscany and Civitavecchia near Rome. Air passengers can choose between the airports Cagliari, Olbia and Arbatax. On arrival it is possible to rent a car in order to undertake the one or other trip around the island. Alternatively Sardinia provides a quite well developed public transport system, comprising of intercity coaches and train lines. One highlight is the touristic narrow gauge railway Trenino Verde which connects Bosa and Macomer as well as Arbatax and Mandas and offers great panoramic views on the landscape of the island.
Enjoy the Mediterranean climate on Sardinia

Especially the summer months between June and September can get very hot so you should always carry enough water with you when going on an trip. During winter the temperatures are seldom below 14 degrees, however most rain falls during this time. Especially the spring months April and May promise ideal weather with 20 to 25 degrees and hardly any rainfall.
Reviews from our customers
This is how holiday rental owners described Santa Maria Navarrese
show more Aragonesi, some buildings and an ancient well demonstrate. The church, according to the legend, has been built up by the king of Navarra’s daughter (after her the name), after she escaped a shipwreck and got ashore at the place where the sanctuary was built up. Its plan consists of a nave and two side aisles covered by wooden trusses, the very plain hut front, and a bell gable on top. The original Romanesque shape has been irreparably altered for the restoration carried out through the centuries. Next to the church there are age-old wild olives that make the square coloured green blending in the crystal blue of the sea. A tree in particular, next to the church, stands out from the others for its size and history according to which it was planted along with the construction of the ancient site. Near the built-up area, overlooking the sea, there is a Spanish tower from the XVII century, called Torre dei Saraceni, built up to defend the coast from the pirates’ raids. From the bottom of the tower to south extended until the commune of Lotzorai lies the Santa Maria’s beach, while to north set in a wonderful landscape is the modern tourist port, from where boats leave for the beautiful Cala Luna, Mariolu, Sisine, Biriala and Goloritzé: more than 40 km of wild cliffs, interrupted only by the brightness of his coves. At August holiday the village celebrates Saint Mary’s feast, with a very touching procession on boat. In this tourist resort there are all the essential services to make your holidays pleasant: from the boat trips along the coast to the walking tours and the horse riding in the mountains, (Supramonte of Baunei – Plateau of Golgo), free climbing, guided tours to the caves of “Fico” and of “Miracolo”, restaurants, pizza-restaurants, drinks stalls on beaches, clubs, diving centres, sport fishing and everything you can imagine. Sardegna Holiday offers you the possibility to spend your holidays in its apartments, just 200 mt far from the sea. They consist of a living room with kitchenette, single room and double room, optional bed if required, bathroom with shower and a veranda to enjoy your meals in the open air. In the home page you will find all the additional services about the apartments.
show more in the hamlet of Santa Maria Navarrese, which, positioned in the most southern part of the territory, has become a renowned seaside location.
The territory is very rich in prehistoric evidence, like for example the cave of Su Marinaiu where there are traces of the first human presence in Sardinia. The stone of Neolithic age positioned at the bottom of the rock face overlooking the built-up area is particularly important. There is a high concentration of nuragic monuments (such as nuraghes, nuragic villages, sacred areas) in the Golgo valley.
The territory of Baunei is also rich in natural attractions such as the Depth of the Golgo, an impressive chasm over 300 m deep; the Pedra Longa point, a limestone spire North of Santa Maria Navarrese 128 m high that drops vertically into the sea.
This area of Sardinia is rich in karst caves that are partially accessible with the use of a local guide. In particular Su Meraculu Grotto and the Cave of the Fig, which has been the last refuge for a flock of monk seals, can be easily visited.
The Baunei Supramonte, the subject of much Sardinian folklore, rich in holm-oaks, junipers, yews and very thick Mediterranean vegetation, hosts some rare natural species with pressing environmental emergencies.
An easy uphill leads up to the Golgo tableland, where many footpaths lead inland or towards the coastal cliffs, with the highest nest building rate of the Royal Falcon in the whole of the Mediterranean.
For the seaside lovers the territory of Baunei embraces some of the most beautiful beaches in the whole of Sardinia. Starting South, Santa Maria Navarrese beach is the first one. After passing Capu Monte Santu, with its high drops into the sea, there is Cala Goritzeï¿½, a small white sandy stretch overlooked by the 128 m high Punta Caroddi, a.k.a. Aguglia. Proceeding in a northern direction there is Cala Mariolu with really fine sand and smooth pebbles. Then there is the Seagulls Beach, a little further we find Cala Biriala with a reddish rock face. Further North Cala Sisine and the renowned Cala Luna (Cala Elune) are also worth a visit.
