Sardinia is a large island to the west of Italy known for its sandy beaches and inland mountains. The landscape is perfect for an activity holiday and you can discover the nuraghi - beehive-shaped structures which date back to the Bronze age. Around a quarter of the island is environmentally preserved, making it great to take your next horse riding holiday through or simply for walks in the awesome climate.
Sardinia is great for those looking some sunshine as it boasts long hot summers with temperatures of around 28.5C. Because of the long summer, beaches are good to swim in from May right through until October.
For those looking to spend some time on mainland Italy, one way to get between the two is via ferry. But please note this is not a short journey (from 5-12hrs) so definitely only one for those taking a longer holiday!
