west Sardinia what to see

Ancient cities, nature, and wonderful beaches: all this is west Sardinia. An area of the island that you are planning to visit on the occasion of your next vacation. And, in fact, you need to know what to see. Here there are the five most beautiful places.


1. Sassari

This holiday begins, to be precise, in the northwest part of the island. And it begins by visiting Sassari, one of the most beautiful cities of Sardinia. There are so many places to see, such as the Duomo, Corso Vittorio Emanuele II and the park of Monserrato. If you’d like to discover beaches, not far away there is the beautiful Porto Torres, renowned (also) for its coastline.


2. Alghero

Visiting Alghero, you will feel the sensation of being in a place that is not Sardinia. In fact, this city is simply unique, because it still preserves many historical, artistic and architectural traces of its Catalan past: the old town centre is the part of the city where you can discover this priceless treasure. Moreover, not far from Alghero, there is the Grotta di Nettuno, one of the most beautiful places in Sardinia.


3. Riviera del Corallo

The name, literally, means “coral coast” and can give you an idea of what kind of place you’re going to visit. The Riviera del Corallo is the part of the coast from La Speranza, south of Alghero, to Rena Maiore. Between these two, there are seven other simply enchanting beaches, all to visit and to enjoy a holiday dedicated solely to relaxation.


4. Bosa

In the territory of Logudoro, it is considered one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. Of ancient origins, Bosa offers castles, towers, palaces and churches. While the hamlet of Bosa Marina is to enjoy the sea of this part of the island.


5. San Pietro Island

To get to San Pietro Island, you only have to take one of the ferries that depart from Portovesme and arrive in Carloforte. A characteristic town that mixes Mediterranean, Sardinian and Ligurian cultures, and with a jagged coastline in which enchanting coves are set like jewels.


This is our itinerary with the things to see in the west part of Sardinia. The starting point of the holiday will be Porto Torres, one of the main ports for ferries to Sardinia: from here, to get to Sassari by car, it takes just twenty minutes.
