Exploring South-West of Sardinia

image


Soon I am flying back to Sardinia but I never shared with YOU my last trip to this paradise! 😍

Sardinia is 1 of the favourite places I have ever visited so no wonder I always find my way back!

Before YOU go to Sardinia, you should read my 1st blog about Top Tips for visiting Sardinia

I booked a Ryanair flight and landed in Cagliari.

I had already seen most of Sardinia, the Best Beaches near Cagliari, so tried to explore more untouched beaches and beautiful places around Cagliari.

I saw Pan di Zucchero and all the area around Iglesias and Masua from a rubber boat. Check out my previous adventure Β –Β Best boat adventure in Sardinia.

But this time I explored the coastline by car. What an incredible trip! Check out my photos, an incredibly beautiful place, right?

Completely unspoiled nature and crystal clear sea.

The next days I explore the Poetto beach, which is 10 km long beach 10 min from Cagliari city centre. Not bad, especially when you want an easy day with a great service.

I would suggest LE Palmette beach club. Amazing food for a very reasonable price as well.

I usually stay in my gf’s house but this time I decided to stay in Grand hotel Cagliari. What an absolutely fantastic location in Via Roma just few meters from the bus station and train station!

I got a single room, where everything was new and well decorated and the bed is a double bed. The breakfast is very good and Martina is the one who was looking after me during my breakfast. What a great personal care I got! Thank YOU again for being such a sweetheart!

One day my friends took me by car to Chia beach for the sea, sand and beach party!

The beach was called Campana beach in Chia.

I loved it!

Then I found a bus going directly from Cagliari (5 min walk from my hotel) to Chia beach. 3.50 eur and 1 hour bus ride! This time I went to Chia Baia – Chia Bay. Amazing!!!!!

The next day I went there again! After seeing Chia Bay It was hard to return to Poetto beach. Chia Bay is too beautiful, almost no people.

One day I decided to take a bus to Villasimius. I woke up at 7 am but the early morning hour ain’t that easy. I missed my bus at 8.15 am and the next was going at 11.15 am. Well I went for a coffee and I bought a waterproof case on amazon for my iPhone, Β because on this vacation I managed to drown my phone. oops!

Then I took a bus and it was over 1 hour ride, then navetta – a little bus, finally after 2 hours I was in Villasimius.

This place has definitely a wow factor! Unfortunately in a high season the accommodation is too pricey and it is too far to travel daily. Plus a really curvy coastline, made me pretty sick.

So the advice is – don’t eat too much before the road trip!

After 2 hours on the road I went on the beach and I needed an ice cream. I couldn’t even possibly imagine to return back after beach time. Just the idea of 2 hours road trip made me exhausted.

Then queing for a gelato (an ice cream) I started talking to 2 American girls and they said if I want I could join them. I said sure, where should I put my towel. I didn’t even know how, but I ended up on a giant yacht – a sailing boat! 😍

YOU see, if I didn’t miss my morning bus, I wouldn’t have met those girls and I definitely wouldn’t have ended up on this beautiful sailing boat.

Here is evidence, that everything in life happens for a reason and missing a bus is not always a bad thing! πŸ™ƒβœŒοΈ #destiny

Oh my how I enjoyed!

I was swimming in a crystal clear water, no filter needed! Check out my photos as I was floating on a Unicorn. If anyone ever had a doubts if I am not living in Lalaland, here I was! Lost in the middle of the sea, holding on a Unicorn called Penny, the most fun ride! And there was a cat on the board as well! Was this a dream or what? Lol #fairytale

Then they said that they must return from Villasimius to Cagliari, Poetto beach. So how lucky I was, I didn’t have to take a bus back home, but we were sailing back to the Cagliari.

Then we took a little rubber boat and returned to Lido beach, Cagliari. I decided to go back to the b&b and they all went dancing.

My bus was going in 45 min, I had nothing to do and I met on the street 5 fun guys on the bycicle for 6 people. They asked me if I want to paddle with them!

Why not? Should I wait for a bus alone for 45 min or should I bicycle with 5 guys? We laughed so much, nothing better then bicycling around Cagliari beach around midnight.

Here we are, a happy night time selfie πŸ™‚

Important transport Information:

πŸ“ Bus

πŸ”΅ P bus – going to Poetto Beach

πŸ”΅ Blue bus – going for long distance, always buy a ticket in the bus station, much cheaper then directly in the bus.

πŸ“ Train to the airport – 10 min from Cagliari to Esma station. Easy!

The train station is few minutes walk from Grand hotel. ( via Roma = centre of Cagliari).

Travelling alone isn’t bad at all. I got my eyes, my heart and my mind open for meeting new friends and having fun!

This was one of my best vacation ever!
