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

  • "Travel to Sardinia with a dog."

    We travelled to and from Sardinia booking with direct ferries and sailing with Corsica Ferries. These are big ferries and very busy. The staff get you to your space on the ship very quickly and from there to your cabin. It helps if you are organised and at your car ready to go on the boat and park as instructed. The turn around is very quick even more so if there has been a delay due to the weather. If you have a dog friendly cabin you go with your dog straight up to the deck and are met at the deck by staff who then take you to your cabin. Be patient there are a lot of people on the boat and they can't get to everyone immediately. The cabins are clean and have a shower with lots of hot water. There is shower gel and soap but no drinking glasses and towels too. They do have a deck where you take your dog to the loo if necessary. On the way back the ferry port at Portes Torres is much smaller and so there is little waiting space. Once you have been checked onto the dock there are no toilets and you have to go back out with your ticket to small bar. There are not many restaurants but we did find a Pizza restaurant in a small courtyard that did takeaways. Again, be back at your car in good time. There were a few people were not back at their cars and so caused queues. A very efficient ferry but you have to do your bit too.
