The unique net work of winding routes of empty country roads is enjoyable for a keen biker. The climate of Sardinia is ideal for bike tours especially in spring and autumn. The coastal flatland is good for beginners and for easy going but the hilly areas of the island need endurance and high levels of fitness from the part of the bikers.
Hiking or walking
To discover the beauty of the island hiking is best suited with a wide range of hiking possibilities. Marked routes are there and there are many guided excursions. The Supramonte massif is one of the most beautiful hiking areas and this area remains as one of the desolate and rocky areas in Europe. There are narrow gorges, imposing chalk rocks, wide plateaus and hidden canyons in a continuous stretch of natural beauty. The green peaked Gennargentu Mountain is a lot more apprehensive when compared to the Supramonte’s supremacy. Hilly Barbegia’s mixed foliage forests are just like the sub alpine mountain range of Germany except for the hordes of tourists.
Sailing in Sardinia provides an extraordinary sailing experience with hundreds of secluded coves, beaches and rock formations. No stretch in Sardinia is same as the next from dunes of the Costa Verde to the deep emerald coves and dramatic cliffs of Cala Gonone.
The island is paradise of windsurfers and the north of Sardinia is best known for windsurfing but south of Sardinia can also offer good wind and wave conditions. One of the best windsurfing areas in Europe is Porto Pollo in Sardinia.
