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

  • "First Time"

    We normally use a ferry from Barcelona to Palma. Corsica Ferries was cheaper and took us closer to our final destination in Mallorca. Would definitely use this route again. Comparing catering between the two, Corsica Ferries wins hands down!

  • "An Unfair Decision "

    The journey itself was alright. The ferry is fast, and has a nice balcony at the back. Moreover, seats are very comfortable. However, we were at the port exactly one hour before. At some point it was good, because nowhere, not only on the ticket, is written where we should have been waiting. We had to ask at the ticket office, where they told us to go to the quay to Sardinia - which is, I consider, quite unexpected. But that’s not all. We waited there an hour. No ship. So we turned around and a man was directing other cars to a different ferry that went to Elba. Not only that we, the first passengers who successfully found the right quay, were informed at the last moment, and therefore couldn’t fit on the substitute ferry, we also hadn’t been told what was going on. We had to ask four times before someone finally gave us an explanation. At least we had an occupation for the one hour we had to wait for another ferry... Having said all that, bad things happen. However, I would appreciate if the company could inform their passengers properly, the communication is really poor.
