Sardinia: an undiscovered jewel
So many people visit Italy every year..but Sardinia is still a jewel almost undiscovered. Sardinia is one of the favorite destination for Italians but not so much for people coming from abroad.
Think about Caribbean water, amazing resorts and white (or pink also) sandy beaches..all with great food and natural sights to explore. What are you waiting for? With its 1840 km of coastline, Sardinia is the Italian region with the largest coastal line, and almost every beach is still untouched and very well preserved. The most famous destinations are Villasimius, Costa Smeralda and Alghero. There are many other beaches, equally beautiful, that have managed to maintain their wild nature. This is the case of Berchida beach, and some of the beaches of Ogliastra and Oristano provinces.
You will be fascinated by the small coves that lie in wild corners of the crystalline seas, you will be astonished to see the wonders that nature has created in the spectacular caves that penetrate the heart of the island.
But Sardinia is not only beach: there are many historical and archaeological sites in the region, Alghero is the perfect city to combine both. Some of the most famous sights are the Nuraghes: there are more then 7,000 exemplars scattered throughout the island, representing the most impressive megalithic monuments in Europe. They are present only in Sardinia: where is the most important? In Barumini, its name is Su Nuraxi.
And don't forget unique and delicious food like Spaghetti con Bottarga made with dried gray mullet roe shaved on top, Malloreddus is a gnocchi style pasta flavored with saffron and served with a tomato sauce. Culingiones are round ravioli stuffed with potatoes and cheese and Seadas as dessert, honey brushed fried pastry available with ricotta.
