If powder-white beaches lapped by cobalt sea, pretty piazzas and a picturesque marina sound like heaven, then look no further than Olbia. Less crowded than other resorts in Sardinia, not only is the port city of Olbia utterly charming, but it’s also a great springboard to explore the rest of the island.
Olbia holidays often start in the historic town centre, where elegant cream and yellow buildings topped with red roofs sit near a sprinkling of sun-drenched town squares and great local restaurants. All set against herb-covered green hills that roll into the distance.
Once you’re ready for adventure, head to the marina and board a boat to tour the coastline, or make for the hills and hike to see some impressive castle ruins. As well as its local unspoiled beaches – with soft sands and water as warm as the Caribbean – holidays to Olbia offer a special glimpse into authentic Sardinia.
