An emerald sea with small and large coves and pure white sand: this is Sardinia, an island that amazes visitors with its natural contrasts, light and colours. A land of ancient traditions, still dominated by wild and uncontaminated nature. Located in the heart of the Mediterranean, Sardinia is predominantly mountainous but without high peaks, offering visitors a unique natural environment, that is harsh yet very sweet at one and the same time. Vast areas have remained magically intact and are inhabited by deer, wild horses and large birds of prey. Other areas have human settlements evolving over the millennia, such as the Nuragic civilization and its nuraghi, the tombs of the giants, sacred wells or houses of the fairies, from the hinterland to villages by the sea. Huge blueness dominates with its shades, penetrating into winding coves, along the coasts and the many beaches. A paradise for people who love the sea, from the night-life of the Costa Smeralda to the peaceful beauty of The Maddalena Archipelago, as well as for active holidays enjoying water sports, trekking and climbing.
