Cannigione is about 15km from the Costa Smeralda. A thriving resort, especially popular in high season, it does not have the designer chic of Porto Cervo, but has a lower-key charm of its own.
There are interesting little shops, selling local produce, typical seaside resort boutiques, usually a weekly market, and bars, cafes and restaurants. There are often boat trips to the Costa Smeralda and the islands of La Maddalena from the small port. Beaches in and around the area are stunning.
The buildings on the hillsides all coloured in pastel shades make for the perfect picture and Long Travel score it very highly!
There is definitely no shortage of boat tours and snorkelling/scuba excursions to be had here! The Gulf of Arzachena is a paradise for sailing, diving and snorkelling as well as for wind and kite surfing. There is something for every age and every standard from beginners to pros. Go deep down under and see some beautiful underwater landscapes in the Marine protected areas on the north of Sardinia. The tropical seas are so clear that all the colours from the reefs are visible which has proven very popular for even international divers.
Sardinia boasts the most famous wines in Italy. The mild climate, saline air and mistral winds combine to produce excellent quality wines with their robust and noble flavour and relatively high alcohol content. Follow the paths of wine through many wine cellars and boutiques where you can sample both white and red wines. Maybe even mix your wine experience with some food & wine tasting to get in the true flavours of Sardinia, Long Travel have many suggestions for your perfect trip and can give you great recommendations!
