Things to do with children in Sardinia including boat tours around the enchanting La Maddalena Archipelago, white sandy beaches and fun for the whole family.

The Costa Smeralda, known to most people as the location for luxury holidays in Sardinia surrounded by yachts and trendy nightclubs, is also an excellent destination for families with children. If you want to spend your holidays in some of the most exclusive parts of the island where you can be sure of relaxing and enjoying peace and quiet, you should choose the area around Porto Cervo, ideal for the needs of the whole family but just a few steps away from the most beautiful beaches of the Costa Smeralda.

The best beaches for children on the Costa Smeralda to visit during your holidays in Sardinia

The famous beaches from Porto Cervo to Cannigione are heaven for families who want to spend their holidays in Sardinia by the sea. The crystal clear water, the shallow bottoms and the fine white sand are ideal for children to play in complete safety, diving into the water and making sand castles.

Among the beaches for families not to be missed on the Costa Smeralda:

  • Capriccioli is one of the most beautiful beaches in Sardinia:a transparent blue sea, incredibly fine sand in shades of white and light pink, a breathtaking landscape of large granite rocks and lush Mediterranean vegetation.
  • Continuing to Palau, the Tre Monti beach at Baja Sardinia is a strip of fine grain sand with shallow sandy waters and an emerald sea, situated at the northern end of the Golfo di Arzachena.
  • 3 kms from the resort of Cannigione is Mannena – Barca Bruciata. A long unspoilt beach suitable for a day by the sea with children who can play in freedom and swim for ages.
  • A 20-minute ferry ride from the picturesque harbour at Palau takes you to the island of La Maddalena. Crossing the bridge that connects it to the island of Caprera, it is easy to reach the Spiaggia del Relitto, a small strip of white sand washed by pure transparent seawater. Swimming alongside the wreck of an old boat that ran aground a long time ago is a unique sensation.

What to do if the weather is not suitable to stay on the beach with the children? You may want to have a picnic in the playground at Porto Cervo. Gregoland is an 11,000 square metre park surrounded by nature facing the crystal clear waters of the Costa Smeralda, equipped with games suitable for children of all ages: paths through the greenery, slides and other games and a small cable car.

Boat trips with children around the La Maddalena Archipelago

Do you want to enjoy an exciting adventure with the children? You can go on a boat tour around the beautiful coastline of Northern Sardinia. A half-day boat trip between the Costa Smeralda and the La Maddalena Archipelago National Park, on board the Delphina Express will let you enjoy a 360° view of the sea. The transparent waters mean that both children and adults will be able to see plenty of multicoloured fish and with a little luck, some dolphins too.
The more adventurous can choose to observe the wonders of the sea from closer up with an amazing sea safari, a guided snorkelling trip through the waters full of marine life between the islands of Santa Maria and Razzoli. An exciting and fascinating experience for the whole family!

Events and games for children on the Costa Smeralda

Choosing a suitable location for children on the Costa Smeralda is important in order to enjoy peaceful holidays with the family in Sardinia. Cannigione, 15 minutes from Porto Cervo, is a delightful little town with a waterfront and a marina suitable for walking and with a cycle path as well. It is a lively place with restaurants, clubs and shops that provide the backdrop for lots of events, many of which are especially for little ones. The 2016 Arzachena summer calendar also offers numerous events dedicated to children: games in the village square, film shows, entertainments with street theatre and circuses. Lots of activities, which together with the free baby and mini club at the family Cala di Falco hotel will fill the vacation days of the smallest guests and make them unforgettable.
