A seaside resort tucked away in Sardinia’s north-east, surrounded by stunning landscapes and a beautiful beach.
Just 30km south of Olbia and boasting 18km of picturesque coastline, Budoni is a wonderful choice for those looking to embark on a summer beach holiday. Convenience is also a big draw for visitors here, as the main town is just a short walk from the white sands.
Convenient for holiday-makers staying in the main town or driving from elsewhere, Budoni Beach provides a stretch of powder-white sands, lapped at by inviting, crystal-clear turquoise waters. There’s ample parking and a couple of beachfront restaurants, but overall the beach adopts a wonderfully rugged and natural feel, backed by a thick line of pine trees. There are also some sunloungers and parasols for hire at a few points along the sand.
Just back from the beach you’ll also find a couple of brackish lagoons, where you can go to spot some pink flamingos.

Just a 15-minute walk inland, visitors can explore Budoni’s town. Away from the busier summer months, it’s a sleepy town with a variety of different shops and restaurants down the main street. By day, pay a visit to the church of which the town is built around - the Church of San Giovanni Battista, and by night, enjoy the bars and nightlife.
