Holidays in
Cannigione

Italian isle with its own flavour

If you’re looking for serenity in a beautiful setting, you’ll feel head over heels for Cannigione. And, in fact, for Sardinia in general. This isle off the west coast of Italy isn’t just a miniature version of The Boot, but it’s got a hypnotic, unique feel all of its own. From the age-old Catalan architecture – a result of hundreds of years of Spanish rule – to the white-sand beaches that look like they’ve been airlifted from the other side of the world. As for holidays to Cannigione itself, this little town is nestled in a cove on the north shores of Sardinia, overlooked by mountain peaks. It’s a laid-back place with an air of sophistication – think family-run restaurants and cafés and a yacht-filled marina. The town’s snow-coloured beach is next to the marina, and a five-minute drive will get you to Tanca Manna – one of the best sweeps of sand on the island.

Your Cannigione questions, answered

You might be surprised to know it’s not Italian, but Sardinian – also referred to as Sado.

Aside from the unbelievable beaches, a day at Aquadream waterpark promises great fun, and it’s less than 15 minutes from Cannigione.

Italian, but with a heady mix of influences – from Arabic to Spanish. Fregula for instance, is cous-cous-like and plonked in soups and pasta sauces.

Best things to do in Cannigione

Visit Maddalena Archipelago

This National Park is spread over 20,000 hectares and made up of sea and seven isles. Boat-trip around them all for jaw-dropping scenes.

Hop over to Corsica

It’s a 50-minute ferry ride from Sardinia to the French isle of Corsica, where glamorous port towns and sweeping countryside await.

Explore the beaches

Sardinia’s beaches are more Caribbean-like than European. Olbia and Porto Cervo are both nearby, with perfect stretches and cosmopolitan towns.
