For holidays, much of Sardinia’s appeal lies in its beaches and landscapes, with its miles of coastline dotted with sand dunes and juniper woods. Inland the terrain is rugged, and sheep outnumber people. The island feels very different to the mainland, with different dishes and architecture. The Emerald Coast is the main resort – with its picturesque pink buildings and beautiful coastline. Porto Cervo is the bolthole of the rich and extravagant, a mooring place for numerous yachts, and the Capriccioli peninsula is good for exploration, with many delightful coves to be discovered. The north west of the island boasts the resort of Alghero, a medieval centre which retains a real sense of character, the ancient centre of the town is still wonderfully atmospheric. Inland are the vineyards and olive groves which support the islands economy, and these are the heartlands for the shepherding which has long been its main industry. Remains of the prehistoric society which once existed here are collected in Cagliari’s archaeological museum in the South. There are also classical remains around this area and great beaches – including that at Chia.
