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

  • "Excellent service"

    Very easy, comfortable crossing. Ran exactly to time. Easy loading and unloading even with a 7.4m motorhome. Dog was allowed to be with us the whole time highly recommend

  • "Tout est parfait sauf le Wifi-Pack-easy"

    Départ et arrivée parfaitement à l'heure. Personnel aimable, prévenant et compétent. Vaisseau propre et bien tenu. Les prix à bord sont raisonnables. MAIS la connexion wifi-pack-easy ne fonctionne pas bien du tout. C'est au point que je n'ai pu compter, à l'aller comme au retour, que sur les réseaux cellulaires des côtes quand elles étaient proches.

  • "Please don't lock your toilets!"

    The service was excellent. We bought our ticket online as we arrived and were boarded straight away. The ship was clean. The food was nice from the self- service outlet. The staff were polite and friendly. We did have a difficulty in the morning as all the toilets had been locked. We were sent from pillar to post until eventually we asked the cleaning crew to use a toilet in a cabin. It was very embarrassing. While understanding the need to ensure the ship is clear there really do need to be clearly signposted toilets available.
