The Sardinia Region
has a typical mediterranean climate and is a place where you can
have an idyllic vacation and discover wonderful places that lie
off the beaten track. The island, which is elongated in shape,
extends from north to south. The vegetation of Sardinia’s
northern and southern regions varies quite a bit as do the island’s
cultural traditions, and Sardinians have adapted to these differences
in their natural environment. The best known area in Sardinia
is Costa Smeralda with its unique small sandy beaches nestled
among many different types of cliffs that border the coast’s
Valledoria / Anglona Area
Valledoria is close to many historic sites
such as Elephant Rock, Castelsardo and is at the mouth of the
Coghinas River which has excellent conditions for surfing, windsurfing
and horse riding.
Festivals are frequent and traditional throughout

also the mouth of the Coghinas River.
La Ciaccia beach is about a 5-minute drive. This
is a sandy beach with a steep shelf and strong waves. Parking

to the steep shelf in the sea but has a play area adjoining a
