Top 10 Islands in Sardinia, Italy

Article by Lauren 

Here are my TOP 10 island selections in Sardinia Italy. Now, I chose based on quality, scenic views, water so clean and crystal clear, and sand as white as snow. Some of these islands even have gorgeous marina's with top quality seafood restaurants, clubs, the best shopping and of course the tastiest gelato!

10. POLTU QUATU

This marina is absolutely stunning, with the most incredible drive surrounding the bay. Here you will find a diving club, Sardinian cuisine, food tasting events, cafes for amazing gelato, wine bars, souvenir and very fancy boutique shops.

9. PORTO CERVO

The most amazing views are exactly at this point here. You can access this area with a car or even a nice hike, just watch the steep hills! Also Dolce and Gabbana happen to have their luxury villas up the mountain, maybe stop by and check them out...gorgeous!

8. BAJA SARDINIA

I had a beautiful experience around this island, with an incredible marina, beachfront and stunning hotels. This area can be very touristy with lots todo in terms of nightlife, fancy boutique shops, Mediterranean restaurants, and sometimes live music!

7. CALA GRANARA

This island is really nice to explore the sea life. This place has many large rocks, plants and many underwater creatures. This island has two white sandy beaches, and large rocky trails to climb and explore around the beach. Take your diving mask and go on an adventure around this beautiful island, and stop by the cute vendor shop!

6. LA MADDALENA

This place is... unreal, with the purest and most tranquil water, beachfront and white sand. It's a bit touristy, but has little beach shops and great views on top of the rocks.

5. BUDELLI

Stunning... Stunning! This beach is gorgeous, with it's volcanic rocks, again... clear crystal aqua water. The photo speaks for itself, and it's paradise, just sip a glass of bubbly and enjoy.

4. TAHITI

This beach is fantastic! Really warm with shallow water, minimal rocks and two white beaches.  You can climb from one beach to the other, or just take a swim across. Again... aqua water and I felt like I was inside a pool...jaw dropping incredible and warm!

3. SPARGI

This island is nice for going for a hike, climbing mountainous rocks, or swimming with fish. The reef is amazing! I loved wearing my mask and exploring under the sea. Lots of unique life down there!

2. ISOLA PIANA

This island is really special because it's a giant swimming pool along the coast in France, just off the coast of Sardinia. The water is clear and beautiful to enjoy. Because the water is so shallow, it makes it wonderful to swim and relax. It's a mini jacuzzi!

1. LAVEZZI

Okay, so this place isnt actually located directly in Sardinia, but the outskirts in France. The only way to access this island is with a boat, just to keep in mind. This was my favourite spot, because it has the most unique natural elements. The rocks are shaped this way because of the wind, and the water is so calm and tranquil. In the evening, the sun goes down and turns the rocks red, and the sky colours of orange and pink. All of the boats are lined up in a natural harbour as well.

Also if you love to snorkel, there is a beautiful reef located just behind these rocks, with beautiful aquamarine water and with many fish to swim with and explore.
