Plan your journey around AlgheroAlghero is a beach lover’s paradise. Bombard Beach is one of the most secluded and most beautiful stretches of sand in town. Blessed with crystal-clear water, pretty much year-round sunshine and fine white sand, it’s the ideal spot to spend a day relaxing. Just next door is Lazzaretto beach – equally stunning – but also a popular spot for activities like kayaking and diving. The Torre Del Lazzaretto (a tower built in the 14th century) is also a popular sight here.
For an injection of culture, visit the Museo Diocesano d'Arte Sacra – a museum of religious art in the city centre. Important woodcarvings, paintings, statues and silverware are on display here.
A trip to an Italian island would not be complete without sampling the local seafood. Borgo Antico is a restaurant set inside an ex-convent in the town’s historic centre. Tuck into classic Italian dishes, like spaghetti with mussels. For dessert, the hole-in-the-wall ice cream shop, Gelateria I Bastioni, always manages to impress.
Road trips from AlgheroWhen you arrive at Alghero Fertilia Airport or Alghero city centre, you’re not only well positioned to explore Alghero town, but the whole island of Sardinia. Just sit back and enjoy the drive.
Drive south of Alghero for just under an hour and you’ll reach the charming medieval town of Bosa. Castello Malaspina is a 12th-century castle that looms over the town and is well worth a visit. Beach lovers are also in for a treat, as the sandy stretch here (Bosa Marina) has been voted the cleanest beach in Italy. Cafes surround the seafront, so it’s easy to relax with a delicious gelato or a rich Italian coffee by the water.
Cabras is home to an important excavation site, Tharros, where artefacts have been found from the Phoenician period. This amazing site is effectively an open-air museum that you can wander through. Beach lovers should waste no time in visiting Is Arutas – an incredible stretch of sand with possibly the clearest water you will find on the island. Just under a two-hour drive from Alghero, Cabras is a sensational day trip destination. With an Avis car hired from Alghero, you’re free to explore the best of Sardinia with ease.
