Planning on renting a car  (4 Answers)

Hi there,
We are planning on taking a ferry from mainland Italy to Olbia. From Olbia, we have to get to Palau, which is 45 minutes away.
I was "strongly recommended" to rent a car. Does anyone know if we'd be better off renting a car in Olbia, or bringing one on the ferry from mainland Italy?
I looked into renting a car in Olbia, and the prices were outrageous (we need one for 5 days.) Does anyone know which rental company I should look into, and how much we can expect to pay?
Grazie!
Kristin

Advice on must see places of Sardinia?  (7 Answers)

We've booked 5 nights on the island of Sardinia and hoping to get some ideas on recommended areas to stay/visit? I feel that the island itself might be too large to choose anywhere to stay and then venture out each day. Thanks!

I will be travelling to Sant'Antonio di Gallura from Alghero soon and have been informed that the SP38 is closed.
Can anyone confirm that this is correct and advise the best route. I am looking at a Michelin map which is about as much use as a chocolate tea pot.
Thanks in advance

Public Transportation in La Maddalena to beaches  (1 Answer)

Hi there,

I am a little bit struggling with my Sardinia itinerary in August. I decide to stay at La Maddalena for 5 days, but I have a few questions about the public transportation and how to access to the beaches.

1) Is it possible to walk to Bassa Trinita from Spiaggia Monti dell'Arena?
2) I really would like to visit Cala Serena, Testa del Polpo, and Spiaggia Del Relitto, but I have found out that there are no buses to these places. I am thinking about a daily bike rental. Is the route difficult to bike from La Maddalena?
3) Is there a small chance for me to get to Spiaggia La Licciola from Santa Teresa Gallera?

I do hope someone can help me with my Sardinia trip and make my visit unforgettable.

Thank you in advanced.

Oblia or Cagliari  (2 Answers)

We're visiting Sardinia for 10 days beginning of June hiring a car and land at Olbia - planning to spend the first few days in Olbia and then drive to Cagliari where we will spend 2-3 days and then spend another 2 days at Olbia prior to the flight. I've purposely double booked hotels for 1 day at Olbia and Cagliari - and I need to cancel one of them. Should I return to Olbia early or stay at Cagliari

Our interests are villages and scenery and accessible naturist nudist beaches - not into caves, boat trips or hiking

Suggestions much appreciated. Thanx

Itinery help - 3 weeks and 2 small kids  (3 Answers)

Hi guys,

I'm struggling with our itinery. We've got just over 3 weeks for Sardinia, initially to have 1 week in Corsica and 2 in Sardinia, but I found out that this doesn't really work. Better is to stay only in Sardinia. As we've got 2 small kids (2 and 4 yrs) and my GF wants to get her Padi, we'll only stick to Sardinia.

Due to the kids, we only want to stay in accomodations that allow the kids to sleep in a separate room, such as 2-room apartments or so. To organize this last-minute (and have flexibility) won't work as I've understood, unless we will accept expensive and not as nice hotels.

We will have a rental car. Could you please recommed some good places (location and beauty) to use as hubs, as we only want to move hotels every 5 days or so? Some great family-friendly accomodation-highlights are of course more than welcome as well (B&B, house, apartment). We'll probably stay for diving in the North-West area.

I realize this is a rather broad question, but hopefully we can get some specific tips beyond what our 2 guidebooks have been able to tell us, and possibly other travellers with kids or with a long travel-time can benefit from this too.

Thanks guys!!

Best regards, Robin.

Rental car Sardinia --> Corsica posisble?  (1 Answer)

Hi,

We are planning 3 weeks for Sardinia. As this is a bit long, we wish to combine it with Corsica. Idea is to fly into Corsica and out of Sardinia (or vice versa). But can anyone please advice on the most logical thing to do with the rental car? Can we collect in Sardina and hand in in Corsica, to save the travel back time and ferry costs?

For short: travel-time is June '16, family of 4 (2 kids of 2 and 4 yrs), have own car-seats with us.

Thanks guys!

Robin.

Looking for a private local driver...  (3 Answers)

Hi,

I plan to travel to Sardinia the 2 last weeks of december this year. I don't drive; buses are ok but the freedom limited. So I thought maybe I could hire a island native and his private car for 2 or 3 days to drive me around. Good for me and it could be good also for a Sardinian willing to earn a little extra cash?

I don't know how to go about it and I wish to have already a contact before landing there. An idea anybody? Thankx

My question is more directed to the local population I guess...

Best regards,

Didier

Close to Vineyards, Beach, and open Food Market?  (1 Answer)

We would like to rent a house for a month or two in Sardinia next summer. I would love to walk to Beach, get to know about Sardinian Wine and buy local seasonal ingredients from Open Market and cook every day. Is it possible to find a house where I can do all of these things?

Help with Sardegna itinerary!

Hi everyone! I’m traveling to Sardegna with two girlfriends for about 10 days in early July. Unfourtunately, we wont be renting a car (I know it would be better if we could, but sadly none of us have our licenses!)
We are taking a ferry from Genova to Porto Torres and heading straight over to Alghero (still haven’t decided whether to stay in a campsite or hostel). We’ll stay in Alghero for three nights, with day trips to La Pelosa, l’Asinara island and le Grotte del Nettuno. Then we’ll head over east, stopping one night in Santa Teresa de Gallura so that we can visit valle della luna (still not exactly sure how to get to the valle though, though I heard that from Capo Testa/Cala Spinosa you can walk). Next stop: Palau or Cannigione and a day boat/kayak trip of the islands Maddalena. On our way to Olbia/San Teodoro (not sure which of the two), maybe swing by Porto Cervo for a couple of hours just to see what it’s like. We then want to head in land for a day, maybe to Orgosolo or Mammaoiada...we were thinking of doing the Gorrupu trek but that might be too much, since we want to spend ½ days exploring the gulf of Orosei (we were thinking of kayaking instead of renting a boat…would it still be possble to see Cala Goloritze, Cala Mariolu, Cala Luna). Is it better to stay in Orosei or Arabtax (advantage there being we can then take the trenino verde/little green train south). FInal stop, Villasimius/Cagliari for 2 nights.

Any advice or suggestions would be very much appreciated!!
