5 reasons why you should holiday to Sardinia with the family this summer - motherhooddiaries

Following on from my summer feature series, where last week I looked at Sicily as an ideal sun, sea and sand destination for your family holiday this summer, I am sticking with the Italian theme and heading over to Sardinia to find out about the delights Gino D’Acampo’s home town can offer for families. Even though I have never travelled to Sardinia myself, I have scoured the net for reasons as to why Sardinia should be a hotspot for family goers during the peak season of summer and I easily found 5 reasons why:

Spectacular beaches

It has been said that Sardinia’s beaches are extraordinary and that there are literally thousands to choose from. When your only headache is choosing which of the beautiful beaches you should take your family to, then I can safely say that you don’t need painkillers – visit them all!

The Italian Food


It’s a fair assumption that food can rarely be disappointing or unappealing when you are visiting a part of Italy, for the locals share a real adoration for their cuisine. The island boasts its own culinary traditions, from Su Porcheddu, which is a roast suckling pig, to Culurgiones, which are stuffed pasta pockets made with semolina flour – there are choices aplenty! But, if you just want to stick to pizza or pasta, it’s still a safe bet to enjoy these staple recipes from where they were first born.

The island is steeped in history wherever you go. What may look like piles of rocks to you are ancient prehistoric structures that stretch back to thousands of years. If you are fond of diving, the Roman ruins in Nora offer divers tonnes of wonders to explore beneath the water. The Nuraghi, one of the well-known symbols of Sardinia can be experienced all over the island, so be sure to visit one of the 7,000 megalithic monuments during your holiday.

The wondrous nature

To get the most out of Sardinia, you can book a tour where you can visit some of the most beautiful natural resorts on the Island. Check out the infographic below for some tour ideas that you can appreciate with the family.

Festivals are big in Sardinia and during the summer, you’ll get to enjoy life with the locals at some amazing shows, like the horse races or the annual Sardinian Reggae Festival. Whatever you fancy, Sardinia is rife with life and full of excitement.

A nature holiday in Sardinia might sound like your idea of fun with the family. If you prefer laying by the beach, checking out some of the hotspot festivals or learning about the historical Nuraghi, Sardinia has a little something for everyone. And, if you’re visiting from Europe, there are ferries to Sardinia from parts of Italy, so be sure to check out your options while you are frequenting the mainland Italy.
