There are a couple of places we haven’t been to ourselves like Dorgali, Tavolara or the Asinara island. And just one I wouldn’t bother with again (Costa Smeralda. Well, Porto Cervo at any rate)
Jennifer’s explanations are great … I would add that I would also recommend a day trip from Santa Teresa to go and tour the Maddalena islands. Boats to do so come in all shapes, sizes and price brackets. But get to Santa Teresa’s port before 9am to choose your boat .
This is another great article from Jennifer Avventura in her blog “my sardinian life / la mia vita sarda” about the few nudist beaches in Sardegna.
For the complete article, read the following 12 beautiful beaches to wear your birthday suit in Sardinia, Italy.
Since Jennifer first published that article about a year ago, I notice 3 beaches have been deleted from that list, leaving Porto Ferro in Alghero as the only local nudist beach ( 1H00’s drive).
For info, all beaches are legally topless in Italy…. But you shan’t see that very often either compared to mainland Italy.
Here is another popular post from Canadian expat & Sardinian blogger Jennifer Avventura (by the way, is that your real surname ? Awesome !) about the rather unusual and ever so slightly changing Sardinian flag. Read the comments at the end as well as they provide more info.
Here is an excellent post from another expat about Sardinian’s weather throughout the year with average monthly climate (temperature, sunshine hours and precipitation average)
I noticed a few changes the last couple of summers : less people on the beach and on the road in July & August. Bad for tourism overall but great for the people who do come here !
Update : we are now early June and the beaches are virtually empty weekdays still… We shall see what July and August bring …
“la Pelosa” beach in the European top ten (90 kms away from Villa Nuraghe)
