The lovely coastal town of Cannigione is set in a sheltered location at the end of a deep bay created by a river inlet. The village was originally a bustling fishing village but is now recognised as popular tourist destination, with its artisan shops, trattorias and beautiful views through the village streets across the bay. 

Slightly further east, Costa Smeralda area, known as the emerald coast is famed for its glamorous atmosphere and crystal clear waters. From this part of Sardinia you'll have wonderful views across to the archipelago of La Maddalena; a small group of islands with sandy beaches and turquoise waters.
