Climbing in Sardinia

Map of Sardinia Map of Italy and Sardinia

Sardinia is a beautiful Mediterranean island, an autonomous province of Italy approximately the size of Wales. The rock of this mountainous, sparsely populated island is mainly limestone, with igneous intrusions in the east. There are cliffs and crags all over the island; the large sea-cliffs of the east and north coasts are famous. The majority of popular climbs are sport routes. Development is well advanced but there are outstanding opportunities for exploration and new routes in all styles.

Su Domu Grogu is a large comfortable house that sleeps 8 people easily. In the centre of the quiet village of Sagama (35ml from Alghero), you will be within reach of all Sardinia's varied climbing areas, especially the north and west -
Cala Gonone(60ml) - Big climbs on mountain crags.
Capo Caccia(50ml) - Famous sea cliffs.
Isili(50ml) - Infamous roof-climbs.
Jerzu & Baunei(70ml) - New routes on wild cliffs.
Buggerru - For postcards! Who cares how far it is?
