San Teodoro

— 2 nights
A chance to sip cocktails at swanky beach bars by day and experience the vibrant club scene by night makes San Tedoro vacations extremely popular.
Parco Museo S'Abba Frisca and Castello della Fava are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Spiaggia La Cinta and Cala Brandinchi. Step out of San Teodoro with an excursion to Spiaggia di Capo Comino in Siniscola--about 42 minutes away. The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Porto Taverna Beach and stop by La Bottega della Pasta di Bacciu Anna.

Sardinia travel guide

Beaches · Landmarks · Caves
Sardinia, with its Mediterranean atmosphere and charm, is loved by visitors looking for things to do outdoors on their holiday, like swimming, boating, windsurfing, hiking, climbing, and camping. Taking advantage of the island's near-perfect summer weather, visitors tend to overcrowd Sardinia's coastal areas. The inner life of the island, away from the most popular vacation spots, remains largely unblemished by mass tourism and commercialization. Sardinia is steeped in history and has a colorful character quite different from the rest of Italy. This is where the ancient Nuragic society, whose stone monuments still litter the land, flourished more than three millennia ago--predating the Etruscan civilization in mainland Italy by several hundred years. Sardinia's seaside resorts may be among the best in the world, but its quieter and more interesting countryside offers a greater array of attractions, including a patchwork of forests, citrus groves, and medieval villages.
