    Olbia – a ticket to Sardinia's coast

    A palm-lined promenade, fascinating pre-history, a handsome basilica, boats bobbing in the harbour, piazzas riddled with cafes and trattorias – Olbia has all the makings of a great Sardinian backwater. Only, those aren't the things that magnetise so many wide-eyed travellers to the north-east corner of this Italian isle each year. That's down to the blinding white beaches and pearly lagoons of the Costa Smeralda – prepare to gasp at the coves and inlets and clear waters. Some say they are the finest in Europe and Olbia holiday rentals are your ticket to the lot.

    Olbia – which way's the beach?

    Whether you've gone for an Olbia holiday rental with front-row seats over the sloshing Mediterranean Sea or a cosy apartment in the heart of the port town itself, you're going to want to hit the beaches. The Costa Smeralda is a coveted collection of wiggling coves and inlets that extends to the north. It's home to uber-famous Grande Pevero and the dune-backed Spiaggia di Liscia Ruja, lovely Spiaggia del Principe and the crystal-clear waters of Romazzino. Sunbathing, snorkelling, swimming and simply gazing at the glorious views from your car window should be plenty to be getting on with.

    Olbia's own draws

    Shake the sand from your pockets and swap the sun umbrellas for a guide book once you're done on the Costa Smeralda, because Olbia touts its own worthy attractions. The Museo archeologico di Olbia is the perfect place to begin. Situated near the port, it looks back to times when Phoenician seafarers occupied the town, or when Romans built villas here, or when the Aragonese kings raised it to greatness in later years. Then there's the 11th-century Basilica of San Simplicio, with its frescoes and statues. You can also find other ancient ruins lurking outside Arzachena, some 20 miles north.

    Olbia is beach territory

    Because Olbia holiday rentals are prized for their proximity to the travel-brochure-filling Costa Smeralda, it should hardly come as a surprise that they are in most demand during Sardinia's warmer months. The summer starts in earnest in June and lasts all the way to the end of August, bringing temperatures in the high 20s and low 30s, along with plenty of sun. Alternative times to visit and still be able to sun yourself on the sands include spring, in May, and autumn, in September.

    Olbia is where the blinding beaches begin

    Olbia sits snugly in a wide inlet on the north-east coast of Sardinia. Behind it rises a series of mountains of glimmering sandstone and scrub, slowly fading to low hills as they reach the shores. And, talking of shores, it's where the land meets the sea that Olbia really comes into its own. Cue the incredible Costa Smeralda, which runs for a full 12 miles up along the edge of Arzachena. There, white-sand beaches and waters so clear they look like crystal are the name of the game.
