Resorts of Sardegna differ with quite high prices, but that’s very easy to explain; luxurious hotels, clean beaches (you won’t find anything alike around Italy), excellent restaurants and a high level of service compensate material costs. The most popular resorts of the island are Gennargentu and Costa Smeralda. In addition to beautiful beaches, vacationers can enjoy excursions to local parks and watch wild horses, seals and graceful flamingos.
