Introducing Olbia holidays 2020

The vibrant little city of Olbia overlooks a gorgeous natural harbour on the north east coast of Sardinia. It has an airport and a ferry port, but is often overlooked in the rush to the glamorous resorts of the nearby Costa Smeralda. But Olbia has plenty to offer visitors, including a pretty little historic quarter, a host of great value restaurants and cafés, and plenty of traditional Sardinian charm. There are lots of fabulous beaches within easy reach, and you can take boat trips from the harbour to explore the fishing villages and islands, including the marine reserve of Tavolara Island, that dot this stunning stretch of coastline.

The nearest beach in Olbia is the Lido del Sole, which is conveniently connected by a regular bus service from the city centre. It has plenty of facilities, including sun beds and parasols for rent, and you might even spot flamingos here. Le Vecchie Salina beach, just south of the Lido del Sole, is a great spot for kite-surfing and surfing. Heading north towards the Costa Smeralda, the beautiful Lido di Pittulongu, about 5 miles away, is made up of four sandy beaches (La Playa, Squalo, Pellicano and Mare e Rocco). All enjoy views of Tavolara Island, a protected nature reserve which is a great snorkelling and scuba diving destination and has a gorgeous beach. Bados Beach is small, but very pretty, a curve of golden sand enclosed by rocky headlands.
