About Olbia

When you hear the word Sardinia, you often imagine Costa Smeralda. Olbia is the place you just missed. But it should not be so. Olbia is much more than an industrial town. Olbia has its charm, and it is not only a great starting point for the nearby tourist attractions. Underneath the economic centre, Olbia bears its own rich history worth of exploring. Basilica di San Simplicio is just one of many historical sites for you to see. Greek, Phoenician, Punic and Roman origins you will find in their Museo Archeologico. Besides, it’s a surprisingly budget-friendly city so you won’t have to worry about every euro you spent. 

Hire a car at Olbia Airport also known as the Costa Smeralda and drive to Tomba dei Giganti Su Monte 'e S'Abe or Costa Corallina Beach if you’re not really into crowds of tourists and just want to enjoy crystal clear water.

Drive your rental car around Olbia

A car hire in Olbia will enable you to take some extra trips around the island and see its beauty. So much more convenient than paying for organised day trips with the agencies.

 

Giants’ grave of Su Mont’e s’Abe

Only a hop away from Olbia Airport you can find “giant’s graves” or Tombs of Giants from the megalithic period. These unique constructions bring up so many questions and mysteries. They could symbolise woman’s uterus, open up questions about life and death or for those more practical they may be nothing more than scattered rocks. In the last case, it is better to go hiking at Castello di Pedres, not far away.

Tavolara island

If you have a hard time controlling your adrenaline, trip to Tavolara island is a perfect choice. You can decide between diving, hiking or maybe visiting some small cosy restaurant to fulfil your hungry senses. You can hire a boat at the marina and explore this wild, radiant island.

Palau

Port town of Palau is a mandatory stop when in Sardinia. If you hire a car, it will take you about 40 minutes to see this place of surf shops and lively boutiques. But the most important thing you need to do when taking a trip to Palau is to hire a boat and explore the island Arcipelago di La Maddalena. This island of striking beauty with turquoise lagoons and freakish shaped rocks will blow your mind.

Costa Smeralda

Land of rich and beautiful where you'll see the most prestigious mega-yachts and billionaires. Costa Smeralda is a piece of paradise spreading at about 20 km from Olbia. It is one of Europe's priciest regions, but if you do not want to miss glamour, you should hop and peek into a life of oligarchs and celebrities.
