Sardinia is a beautiful island to visit. Many coastal views great for nature photographers. Sardinia is a Mediterranean island part of Italy. Has a lot of to offer for nature photographers: beaches, forests, mountains, cliffs, animals, harbors, villages. Sardinia has a rich history and special attractions such as nuraghi and towers. Crystal clear sea views. Sometime the color of the sea changes from bright crystal clear to light blue, if the weather is cloudy. Summer has many days with a clear sky and bright sunshine. The light is good for taking photographs around.

Sardinia has tourist resorts such as Costa Smeralda and also not so well known little villages and cities without many tourists but photography spots with nature and sea view. The best way to go around the island is by car or tour. There is also a train connection but not to everywhere, example to Italy mainland must go by ferry or flight.

How to arrive: there is a port example in Porto Torres with ferry connections to Spain Barcelona, Civitavecchia (near Rome) and to Genoa Italy. Ferries around the year usually everyday. Example Tirrenia, Moby and Grimaldi lines ferries. Those are usually about 100e 1 night but cheaper offers without a cabin. Flights usually available to Alghero and Cagliari. Alghero is a Catalan city in Sardinia and summer holiday destination with beaches. At least sometime there is boat tours to caves and dolphin watching boat trips. Also tours to Asinara island. Cagliari is the capital of Sardinia and there you could see flamingos. Summer season weather could get extremely hot and people go to Sardinia usually for beaches example to Stintino and to Villasimius tourist resorts. Sardinia is still a peaceful holiday destination with a lot of nature.

Stintino beach is famous one of those summer beach destinations

Budelli spiaggia rosa is a pink beach there is some pink sand, La Maddalena Archipelago. Sand is pink due to the numerous shells and little fragments of red corals. About best beaches in Sardinia http://www.charmingitaly.com/article/best-beaches-in-sardinia  You could also see many kind of caves, natural bridges and nature pools made of lime or rocks. Su Pallosu island has a cat colony. There cats play with each other and with visitors. It’s possible to visit the cat island but must book a tour first. Local not-for-profit organization take care of the cats. I like Sardinia and I will return someday.
