Need a Car

by littlebush

To get to Alghero from Londom, wait for Ryanair to do their deals(I should be on commission you know!), we went for £49 but I know you cna go as low as £30!

You need a car to really explore the north west of Sardinia, in the Alghero region. There are buses but you wont get to all the good parts. Car hire is cheap. It cost us 64 euros for 2 days for a small fiat panda which is al you need on thsi island. Driving is fantastic, not a sole on the roads, the scenery is fantastic, the sun shining, absolutely perfect!
fuel is cheap too. We hired from www.autonoleggiosardinya.it
If you do use buses, they are dead cheap, 88cents from porto conte to alghero!

Beaches and Coastline

by littlebush

In and around Alghero theres loads to do :

- Beaches, there are plenty of fantastic beaches in this area, some very deserted. The best include Porto Conte, La Pelosa, Porto Ferro and Bosa. You'll need a car to access all these beaches easily.

- Good drives, obviously you'll need a car to enjoy a good drive but there are plenty. The drive from Alghero to Bosa is stunning, the road hugs the cliffs with beutiful beaches around each bend. The drive from Alghero up to Stintino is very nice through a plain wilderness and then to a rugged coastline.

- Alghero, walking around Alghero for an afternoon or day is very pleasant. Its got some very old buildings and narrow winding streets.

-Sunset at Capo Caccio, this is a must! Capo Caccio is a stunning cape about half hour from Alghero. They have a famous grotto here,Grotto Nettuna. The sunset from the cliffs is beautiful.

Lago Baratz - a big lake not far from Stintino in heavy woodland, nice scenery around

Transportation between Alghero and Porto Conte

by noewestenra

I'd like to know how is the transportation between Alghero and Porto Conte.Are there local buses running often?Is it easy to rent bikes in the area?Are there good beaches around Porto Conte reachable without depending on your own transport?
We are thinking of staying in Porto conte so we'd like to know a little bit more as we haven't found much info on the internet.
thank you!!

There are a few buses between the two but certainly out of season the last one back to Porto Conte is about 7pm. A taxi costs about 30 euros.

We stayed at Porto Conte and absolutely loved it but when we return we will definitely hire a car.

We stayed at the Hotel Porto Conte whch has a lovely private beach and hires out bikes at a very reasonable rate. The bikes enabled us to access the lovely beaches and hidden little coves around La Bombarde - superb!

The boat ride to Capo Caccio from Alghero is unmissable.

There is one restaurant in Porto Conte outside of the hotels - it's called Embracadero and on Saturday nights turns into a disco at 11pm. Great fun!

Looking for further sea fishing info...

by IvyCairo

Hi,I noted the information provided about sea fishing in response to a previous question, however I was wondering if anyone could please advise where we would be able to rent a small boat and fishing equiptment? Also are there any dangerous currents or anything of the like to be aware of around Porto Conte if we were to swim off the boat?

Re: Looking for further sea fishing info...

by domenicococozza

Hi,
I'm sorry to say that renting a boat in Sardinia is not going to be easy. Most of the vessels are working fishing boats. Renting sea going boats is not common.
There are charter boats available with skippers for morning, afternoon, or full day fishing trips on the Costa Smerelda (the east coast). You will find several
charters available in the Golfo Aranci area
When you get to Alghero, I suggest you go to the local tourist office and make further enquiries.

Fishing in Alghero

by Virtualcat

Does anyone know the best places to go fishing in or near Alghero? Would rather do it independently than go on a fishing trip, are there places that you can go on your own, or rent row boats? Do you need a fishing licence?

RE: Fishing in Alghero

by virtualnick

Hi,
if you mean the most common sea fishing (from boat, reef, beach, ..) you do not need any fishing licence. On the other hand if you mean sweet-water fishing (lake or river) you need a fishing licence.
A colleague of mine told me that one of the best place for sea fishing could be Porto Conte.
Enjoy

Hi!
the best spot for fresh-water fishing is the Cuga Lake, follow to Uri/Olmedo direction, 15km from Alghero. That's one of the best places for carps and bass. Like any fresh-water spots here in Sardinia it needs the fishing licence and during summer it might have no water, even if it should be bigger enough to be empty. Actually I don't know where you can get a temporary licence; maybe in the Uri city hall someone could help you.......or even tell you to go fishing without any worry for a fine :-)
Moving 40km south from Alghero, you can try in Bosa, at the Temo's mouth. There you can try many fishing techniques thanks to many fish varieties.
And last but not least, for salt-water fishing, you can try along all the coast around Alghero. Nice advice from VirtualNick, Porto Conte is a nice spot, and it's sheltered from NW "maestrale" wind. It all depends on what kind of fishing you want to do ;-)
Enjoy!

by Jo.surf

I can suggest you Valledoria and Badesi..
There is the sea and the river, and usually there are internationals surfcasting competitions..
Good luck !
Ah, if you need an accomodation, send me an email..
