I plan to travel to Sardegna in August. Yes, I know, it will be busy!
My interests: Beach/Sea, History, good food and quiet, rest.
I will arrive in Cagliari. 3 nights, historic sites & Villasimius, Poetto Beach. Cagliari is a must stop for me.
I am planning on taking a very early morning bus to Palau, over 5 hours, a bit rough. I will be relying on public transport on this trip.
3 nights in Palau.
Is it worth it the time, effort, probably congested and expensive area Palau/La Maddallena, to experience the sea, which I understand is quite spectacular? I am a sea/beach person.
Then, 4 nights in Alghero. A must stop for me.
Total days in Sardegna will be 10 days.
Seeking feedback from Sardegna frequent travelers or residents for suggestion if this itinerary is too busy, particularly the part of visiting Palau/La Maddalena?
Is visiting the Costa Esmeralda so significantly different from the other areas that I will be visiting?
Ultimately, I believe this is a matter of opinion/taste, but thought I check anyway wih this Forum.
