Skip glitzy Costa Smeralda. There are lovelier beaches elsewhere, for starters: Nora with its Roman amphitheatre; northeastern beauty La Pelosa; the 30m high white dunes of Baia Chia; the entire Orosei coast. Promenade the sea wall in medieval Alghero, admire mysterious Nuraghe ruins (alongside Phoenician and Roman), or seek out wild horses in Barbagias herb-scented mountain wilderness.
