and roads and paths that lead from the mountains to the sea, Sardinia is increasingly acknowledged as the perfect destination for outdoor activities all year round. And it’s being targeted more and more by cycling enthusiasts.
Cycling in Sardinia, with its quiet roads, increasing numbers of cycle lanes, means that you can really get to see the real Sardinia.
Cycle Itinerary on the Emerald Coast and Gallura Coast
One of the most fascinating cycle routes is that which allows you discover hidden parts of the Emerald Coast. Departing from da Arzachena towards the hills of San Pantaleo and on to Porto Cervo and Baia Sardinia. Going north keep pedalling towards Palau where you can hop on a boat for a tour of the Maddalena archipelego of islands. You can easily explore the island of Caprera by bike, where you’ll find the home of Garibaldi open to visitors.
Or again, how about a trip of 51 km that takes in Cannigione and Tempio Pausania/Nuchis, and explores Gallura, characterised by its large cork production areas and granite outcrops that time has sculpted into amazing shapes. And don’t forget to go to Castelsardotoo, medieval fortress built by the Doria family in 1102, towering over the sea.
