Our second part of Sardinian week was spent on the northern part of the island. We had some shorter day planed and I think this region might be my favorite part of Sardinia. Even now, just looking at those photos made me nostalgic. It was so warm (not as host as Sicily, but waaay hotter than it is here now :)) and we spend our days relaxing, looking at the sea and discovering new places.
The first day we headed east for Spaggia il Principe and Santa Teresa Gallura. On our way we passed Sassari and Aggius – a small, but most charming little village with stone paved streets. We didn’t really plan to stop there but it looked interesting so we decided to take a short walk around the village. I found it beautiful. When I started to prepare material for this post I had more then 10 photos of Aggius although they were all very similar, but there was just something about them I loved.
Spiaggia il Principe
When we arrived to Santa Teresa Gallura we encountered rain for the first time in two weeks. Firt we thought it was just going to be a few drops but after a while it was raining like crazy and we decided to go inside for a coffee and hope for the rain to stop – and it did. After the storm the sky was amazing and in my opinion I took some of my best photos there. The light was simply amazing!

Spiaggia Rena di Ponente
We slowly headed back toward Olmedo, stopping in Castelsardo on our way. There we saw a beautiful sunset over the sea. We didn’t walk around much because we were pretty tired from the long day behind us, we just drove to the top of the hill where Castelsardo is located.
Spiaggia Di Pellosa
The next day we were up early and drove to see Spiaggia Di Pellosa – the most beautiful beach in my opinion. We also drove to Sintino and then further towards Argentiniera. We spend quite some time swimming and sunbathing so it was to late to follow our plan to also visit Alghero at the same time. We decided it would be better to leave it for the next day and just visit Grotte di Nettuno. We didn’t actually go inside, because I’m not very fond of caves, so we rather stayed outside and enjoyed the beautiful views.

Honestly I could write like 5 more pages just about those two days. Those days spent on the islands of Sicily (Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3) and Sardinia (Part 1) were just amazing, so full of memories. If you have any questions what so ever, send me and e-mail or leave a comment below! I wish this year I manage to plan a trip as memorable as this one. It already past midnight as I write this and I suspect today I’ll fall asleep thinking of warm summer days and a smile on my face! :)
