We came to this camsite with Canvas Holidays, as we have been going with them camping since we started. The campsite is stiuated right on a shingle beach, which wasn't too good for us, but only as it was a bit painful on our feet. The island's biggest asset, to us, was the beautiful turquoise sea. We have travelled to many campsites, but none of them had a sea anywhere in the league of Sardinia's. It was great for snorkelling, with sea anenomes, sea urchins and even the occasional starfish popping into view. None of them were at risk of getting stepped on, as the water was quite deep.
For less confident swimmers, closer to shore has cracks in the sea bed, where plenty of fish roam at a close distance. Those who choose to go out a further distance could be able to see some fish of over 60cm long!
For those that prefer sand, a few minutes walk along the beach will bring you to a more sandy shore (Though with some shingle) And is so much more comfortable. Kids will be able to build all the usual sandcastles, etc.
There are a variety of water activities that the campsite offers, including banana boats, which we longed to do but did not have time.
Our caravan was well equipped though was too small for our family as it only had two bedrooms. All three children (13, 11 and 5) had to share a bedroom which did not work out well. If you have older kids or teens like us, I reccomend a three bed caravan instead, though they don't do them at this camsite.
The pitches are very small, so beware of this before you go. Some people cannot park their cars outside their caravans but must park further away. We were lucky that we could leave our car right next to us, so much more convenient!
Our caravan was facing another one's front, so we shared the same outdoor space. This was great, the fact that you are really close to the next caravan and facing them means that you can socialise a lot. We made friends with two families and loved being able to eat and enjoy eachother's company.
The point for us of camping is to make friends while you are there, so beware that there are few Canvas caravans in this campsite, so there is less chance of meeting people.
There is a lot going on, from dance lessons to a disco! It is all very italian themed as you would expect in Sardinia, and as our family didn't speak the language we couldn't join in- they give you instructions in Italian and we could not follow them!
Pizza take-away was great, and very reasonably priced. Also there is a restaurant and self service place but we didn't try these so cannot comment.
Try the ice cream in the cafe/ icecream shop. It is delicious! They also have a selection of exquisite sundaes and drinks available to order. There is live entertainment every night and is a great atmosphere. Childrens' entertainment goes on till just after ten pm, and then adult entertainment starts and goes on till midnight. It is noisy and we heard it from our caravans all the time, but isn't too loud as to interupt your evening.
I would reccomend visiting a beach in Costa Paradiso, they have so many and are beautiful, though get busy so be sure to get there early. Outside the camsite shop there are many guidebooks for sale- one about the beaches of Sardinia and has great advise as to where to go.
Also a boat trip to see the beautiful rugged coast of Sardinia is a great thing to do.
Overall; a good campsite with nice warm atmosphere and good facilities. There very few British people here though, if you have come to socialise and make friends, then it may not suit you. It feels very cultured and calm, and is very suitable for families.
