The Island of Sardinia for Sun, Sand, and Sailing

Sardinia is an island located off the coast of Italy, and while it is still considered an Italian island, it is heavily influenced by its own unique culture. The language spoken in Sardinia differs greatly because in addition to traditional Italian, there are four main dialects spoken in different areas of Sardinia. Most Sardinians will speak Italian to people that they don't know, so it is good to become familiar with the language before setting sail for Sardinia.

One of the most popular attractions in Sardinia is the coastal region. On the coast, you can enjoy the warm Mediterranean weather while you soak up the sun, or you can sail around the sea from Coasta Smeralda. If you enjoy sailing, then Sardinia will be an ideal destination because you can explore the beautiful waters and visit the small islands with the Asinara National Park and the Maddalena archipelago. For an underwater excursion, visit the Alghero area and see the breathtaking underwater caves while scuba diving near the grottoes.
