Reviews of Sant'Antioco

The island of Sant'Antioco is located on the eastern coast of Sardinia. It is linked to the mother island by an isthmus approximately five kilometres long. Its surface area is 109 km².

My suggestion:
Spend at least one night on the island and make the complete tour. You will discover a different atmosphere from the rest of Sardinia, with its peaceful, unspoilt beaches.
My review

During my trip to Sardinia, I arrived in Sant'Antioco and was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere of the island. I toured the island, leaving the ponds to my left. I observed many flamingos and other birds near the salt marshes. Heading north, I arrived in Calasetta, the second locality of the island. It is populated by fishermen and farmers. I took the street that leads up to the tower to admire the landscape.

Continuing outside of the town, I came across some beautiful beaches of white sand, bordered by junipers. Further up the road, I left the tarmac and followed a path. I arrived in Cala Lunga. I spent a long time there, enthralled by the beauty of the place. It is a wild cove with crystal clear water.

When I returned to Sant'Antioco, after discovering the back country and the southern coast, I strolled through its streets and archaeological area. Its port gives on to a lagoon. The boats are moored in canals and Sant'Antioco is sometimes called the lagoon town of Sardinia.
