Sardinia - Olbia, The Costa Smeralda & The Gallura (Chapter)
This is the Olbia, the Costa Smeralda & the Gallura chapter from Lonely Planet’s Sardinia guidebook.
Costa Smeralda evokes Sardinia’s classic images: pearly white beaches emerald seas. Inland you'll find vine-striped hills and traditional villages, while further north the Gallura coast becomes wilder, the preserve of the dolphins and windsurfers.
