Sun, beautiful sandy beaches and the Mediterranean Sea... Alghero, located in the north-west of the island of Sardinia is an authentic holiday destination ideal for family holidays. Much appreciated for its rich history and remarkable monuments as well as its local crafts with goldsmithery and coral workshops dotted throughout the town. The fine, sandy beaches and peaceful atmosphere make Alghero one of the most relaxing seaside towns in Sardinia. While coming alive in the summer months with a varied and lively nightlife, this town manages to avoid the artificial atmosphere of so many popular Mediterranean seaside resorts. It is often nicknamed the little Barcelona of Sardinia.
