Day 1 Olbia to Porto Cervo
Arrive into Olbia and pick up your car before driving the short journey north to Porto Cervo. Set in the heart of Costa Smeralda, Porto Cervo is a picturesque Italian seaside resort, from which it’s easy to explore Sardinia’s stunning north coast.
Days 2-3 Porto Cervo
Sardinia’s beaches often top the list of the world’s best, and with your own car you’re free to discover them at your leisure. Head to Spiaggia del Principe, a magnificent crescent of white sand bordered by unspoilt green landscapes and startlingly clear blue waters. Alternatively, why not head to Sardinia’s northern most tip of Capo Testa, home to secluded, scenic hiking trails and incredible sunsets that are worth the journey alone.
Day 4 Maddalena Archipelago
Often called Sardinia’s secret islands, the Maddalena archipelago offers a cluster of islands of stunning beauty. Catch the ferry (payable locally) from Palau and explore pure paradise. Quiet beaches, turquoise lagoons and smooth white sand will have you thinking you’re in the Caribbean.
Day 5 Porto Cervo to Alghero
Today leave Porto Cervo behind as you drive from coast to coast, arriving into Alghero. Encircled by ancient walls, the city is best known for its cobblestone old centre, Catalan Gothic buildings and of course yet more stunning coastline.
Days 6-7 Alghero
Stroll around Alghero’s old town, from its waterfront fortifi cations to its striking
religious architecture. Make time for the Porta Terra Tower, offering fantastic views
from the top. Alternatively, choose to laze on Speranza Beach. This serene stretch of golden sand is one of the quietest in the area, and its shallow waters make it ideal for families.
Day 8 Bosa
Today drive south along the picturesque coastal road to Bosa, passing dramatic rock formations en route. One of the most attractive towns on the island, Bosa is famed for its rainbow coloured buildings that line the water’s edge.
Day 9 Alghero to Olbia
After a leisurely morning, drive back to Olbia, dropping off your car before catching your onward flight.
