We only stayed one night in Cagliari and our trip was very brief–only two nights total–so we really only saw the southern bits of Sardinia, with a bit of the southwest as well. But what astonishing sights!! As I said in the previous post on Sardinia, RENT A CAR. As we drove to our next hotel spot, in Sant’Antioco, we had a few hours of these sorts of views:
We stopped to lounge for a bit on this beach, which just seemed the most appealing of them all and we never could have visited if relying on public transit:
And we had a leisurely and cheap lunch at a place which barely had a name and is certainly not in any guidebooks and we only knew about because we asked the high-school aged kid who was working (unofficially or officially, who knows?) as the “parking attendant” at the beach where we stopped.
Rent a car is Sardinia. Rent a car, rent a car.
