Ferries to Sardinia

Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, found approximately 120 miles west of mainland Italy.

Boasting almost 2,000km of stunning coastline, its own language and a variety of ancient architecture, Sardinia is one of the most interesting and picturesque holiday destinations.

The island has some of the finest beaches in Europe. You can enjoy excellent kite-surfing and sailing or you can simply relax on the soft white sands of the beautiful Costa Smeralda in the north.

It is also home to a number of endemic animal species such as the albino donkey, Sardinian wild cat, Sardinian deer and the Sarda sheep.

Il Castello in Cagliari is one of the island’s most iconic images, an impressive hilltop citadel with vast walls and towers, which was built by the Pisans in the 13th Century.

Make sure you allow plenty of time to explore some of the 7,000 fascinating Bronze Age sites known as ‘nuraghe’. The most visited is the Nuraghe Su Nuraxi in the Barumini countryside. It comprises a 1500BC tower, various huts and has been listed as a World Heritage Site.

Sardinia is well connected with mainland Europe and the surrounding Mediterranean islands by ferry. With ferry terminals in Cagliari, Arbatax, Olbia, Golfo Aranci, Santa Teresa Gallura and Porto Torres.

From mainland Italy, there are terminals in Genoa, Livorno, Piombino, Civitechhia and Naples with frequent crossings provided every week.

You can sail from Barcelona in eastern Spain almost every day, with less frequent crossings from Nice and Toulon in southern France.

If you are travelling from Corsica, you can sail from Bonifacio and Porto Vecchio in the south, with a few high-speed sailings every week.

In Palermo, Sicily you can choose from a couple of sailings every week, which last around half a day.

Sardinia reviews

  • "Very good Service"

    I found the service to be very good. I did not use the catering facilities.

  • "Excellent"

    What a fabulous boat. Although full, the public areas were not crowded, apart from the sun deck and pool area. We cannot comment on the catering facilities as we had brought our own food on board, but the choice of three restaurants, including one for fine dining was excellent. The only downside to the trip was that although leaving pretty much on time we docked at Livorno an hour later than scheduled and, as we have a camper, we were about last to disembark - an extra wait of 45 minutes... We will certainly use Corsica Sardinia Ferries again!

  • "Practical Way to Access Italy"

    Ferries from Barcelona to Italy, Sardinia, Corsica give an opportunity to access more remote parts of Europe from UK without that long haul through France and/or Germany. These ferries represent very good value taking into account time saved, petrol saved and an overnight stop on board.

  • "Good but delayed crossings"

    Modern, well equipped ferries with good amenities on board. Unfortunate that no cabins were available for return - overnight cross with just a reclining seat was less enjoyable to end my holiday. Lots of people sleeping on floors and in the self-service restaurant! Crossings were delayed by circa 2 hours in both directions which was frustrating, especially on return as this reduced the time I had with friends in France. On board staff were helpful on both crossings and Toulon port was well signposted. Signposting for exact entry point to ferry port in Porto Torres was very poor and difficult even with help of check-in desk attendant's directions. Also unclear whether printed confirmation had to be exchanged for tickets prior to reaching main port gate (was required on return, but not on outward journey).
