Follow the siren call of the soft emerald water to the silky sand beaches of Sardinia. This charming island in the Mediterranean is defined by its sun-soaked ancient cities, wondrous prehistoric sites, and its breathtaking coastal panoramas of lush mountains and secluded coves. Sardinia is a picturesque getaway of thrilling outdoor adventures and remarkable attractions. Soak up the sunshine on a gorgeous beach, or dive beneath the waves as your scuba around the submerged ruins of Nora. Roam through the stone remains of ancient civilizations and towers of nuraghi, and examine the artifacts in the National Archeological Museum or wander the narrow alleyways of quaint, pastel-colored fishing towns. In the crescent-shaped bays, there are opportunities for exploring fascinating caves like the Grotta di Nettuno, kitesurfing in the glimmering spray, or sailing around limestone cliffs. In Sardinia, life moves to the rhythms of the azure waves, and the best way to explore the island is to be out on the water. These eight Airbnb houseboats and yachts are the perfect choice of accommodation for your island holiday. Read more about them below!
