Poetto Beach in Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy.
One of the most beautiful beaches in Sardinia, palm tree-lined Poetto gives you a chance to relax as you take in the views and a swim in the crystal waters. Small cafes and bars dot the beach — once you're all sunned out, sip a Sardinian mirto, an herbal liqueur, and mingle with the locals.
View of the sea from the Saint Remy Bastion in Cagliari, Sardinia
The Bastione of St. Remy invites you to walk through its columns into the 19th-century fortifications. Enjoy an espresso or gelato as you gaze at the panorama. Then, climb atop the Torre dell'Elefante for fantastic views of the rolling hills.
A short 15-minute drive or 40-minute bus ride on Linea 6 from the Regina Margherita Hotel takes you to Molentargius-Saline Nature Park, an oasis just outside the city. Here, you'll find stunning natural views of flamingos. You can also spot the local ducks, chickens, and gulls with Italy cruises to Sardinia.
Sardinian cuisine is unique from that of Italy. Sample thin, crisp carasau bread and the distinctive saffron-spiced malloreddus gnocchi. Savor the Tyrrenhian's bountyin the form of Sardinian seafood stew — packed with flavorful clams, lobster and squid — and pasta alla trabaccolara, made with white fish, herbs and lots of garlic. And don't miss pabassinas, a small pastry dense with walnuts, almonds and raisins and spiced with orange zest and cinnamon.
The crafts found in Sardinia reflect its unique culture. Craftspeople pass down techniques from generation to generation, from colorful embroidered silk to filigree gold and silver, hand-painted ceramics, and traditional wooden masks. The Marina area is where you'll find most of Cagliari's shops and boutiques.
