Just like its northern counterpart, the southern coastline of Sardinia is very windy and this is especially true of the Bay of Cagliari and the area around the Sant' Antioco peninsula. The coastline is greener and more rugged than its northern neighbor and offers many beautiful sandy beaches which are often compared to those in the Caribbean. The area also has less people during the high season.
If you are patient and wait for more stable weather conditions, you will find many wonderful cities and towns here, top of the list being Cagliari and Carloforte, along with several interesting little islands and countless safe anchorages. An extremely pleasant bonus is the Capo Carbonara Marine Reserve, which spreads out along the southeast of Sardinia from the island of Serpentara to Capo Boi. You will be amazed by the beautiful sandy beaches and incredibly varied sea life, which you can enjoy with a snorkel and some diving equipment. Great diving and fishing also await you near the islands of Sant' Antioco and San Pietr
