Here are some of our favourite views across the beautiful island of Sardinia.
From snow-capped mountains, to emerald green oceans and lit up towns, Sardinia boasts some truly breath-taking views. So rather than keep our wonderful finds to ourselves, we wanted to share some of our favourites with you…
Gola Su Gorropu, Ogliastra
Sometimes referred to as the Grand Canyon of Europe, Gola Su Gorropu is a 1,300ft limestone gorge with some great (but difficult) trekking routes. Looking up from inside the gorge, you can follow a thin ribbon of blue sky, snaking its way along the edge of the rock, to discover some impressively large boulders and hidden rock pools. From above the gorge, a magnificent craggy landscape provides some fantastic photo opportunities.

Porto Giunco, near Villasimius
One of Sardinia’s most beautiful beaches, Porto Giunco boasts pure white sands and crystal clear waters encased in a sweeping bay, along with stunning mountain views in the distance. It’s the perfect location for both beach lovers and avid photographers.
Relais Villa del Golfo, Cannigione
In a superb location on the heights of Cannigione, Relais Villa del Golfo is home to some sensational views across the Gulf of Arzachena, the island of Caprera and beyond to the Costa Smeralda. With a marina also in sight and pretty sailing boats dotted around in the ocean, these views speak for themselves…
Castello dei Doria, Castelsardo
Perched on the hill of St. Matthew in Sassari, Castello dei Doria is a wonderful location for a big helping of history, along with panoramic views over the Gulf of Asinara out towards Corsica, and the historic town of Castelsardo.
Villa Girolia, Baia Sardinia
Nestled in the Sardinian hillside, Villa Girolia overlooks the gulf of Cannigione and the beautiful bay. With an impossibly blue ocean laid out before you and lush green gardens positioned at the forefront, you don’t need to be an experienced photographer to capture some truly spectacular images. The villa pool also provides a wonderful focal point, with the rolling hills and flora melting away behind it to make way for the ocean.
Capo Coda Cavallo, North-East Sardinia
Another exquisite beach view can be found at Capo Coda Cavallo, on the north-east side of the island. Settled between the mountains, this beach features sublime views of Isola Molara and Isola Tavolara, and if you take a climb up to the headland and sneak a peek over the bay, the crystal clear shallow waters glisten in the warm Mediterranean sun.
Hotel Su Gologone, Oliena
Located in the foothills of the Supramonte mountain range, Hotel Su Gologone boasts an incredible view of the snow-capped mountains one side, and olive groves and vineyards on the rolling hills the other side. For avid hikers, take one of the trails up the mountain, where you can become one with the beautiful landscape that can be photographed from this hotel.
Bastione di San Remy, Cagliari
For a wonderful view across the Gulf of Cagliari, over towards the Capoterra Mountains, the Bastione di San Remy (Bastion of Saint Remy) is the ideal place to be. After exploring the 19th century building itself with its stunning limestone arch, take the staircase up to the top where you will be able to see Cagliari in all its glory,
