Best Hotels in San Teodoro

San Teodoro Hotels

San Teodoro is a place of bold colours and brilliant beauty - so let the jade-tinted waters that lap against the startlingly white sands of its hidden coves enchant you. Enjoy views of spits jutting out into crystal-clear sea, and jagged offshore rock formations breaking through the water’s surface, from your vantage point on the glowing sand of some of San Teodoro’s best beaches. The hotels here are just as beautiful as the natural setting, adding a crowning glory to this sunny Italian island paradise.

Things to see

Sardinia is blessed with more than its fair share of magnificent beaches, but the shallow, sparkling water at Lu Impostu Beach stands out in particular. If you can find the motivation to move from its soft, powdery embrace, you can swim through water that’s as warm as a bath, with undulating waves gently rocking you. La Cinta is another idyllic, sun-drenched beach, where tiny fish glide just below the colourful kites that swoop over the water’s surface. San Teodoro’s most popular beaches can get a little crowded at peak times, which is the perfect excuse to grab a mountain bike, and disappear into the island’s forested hills. Get your heart racing, as you pump your pedals through thrilling descents, before stopping to dip into a scenic plunge pool, formed by the Pitrisconi River. Swim as close to the edge of the limestone walls as you dare, before looking down at the plume of white water that’s noisily crashing into the bottle-green lake below.

Hotels in San Teodoro

Luxury hotels in San Teodoro let you melt for state-of-the-art spa facilities, while staying in the secluded privacy of beachside villas - which are hidden away by blankets of waxy leaves and lemon trees. Swimming pools sparkle in the intense sunshine, and you’ll feel your skin bronzing, as you lie back to sip a cool drink, and read a book on a sun lounger. Escape the heat in your room, where you can turn up the air conditioning, and log on to the free WiFi that even most budget hotels in San Teodoro offer, to share your holiday snaps with home.

Where to stay

Staying in San Teodoro itself puts you as close as possible to the sandy shores, and you can be on the soft sand just 5 minutes after waking each morning. Enjoy afternoon strolls through the sleepy town, and stop to sip coffee, in the shade of palm trees. Beer drinking has a long tradition on the island, and archaeological evidence suggests it’s been the tipple of choice since the Copper Age - so it’s only polite to try the local favourite, Birra Ichnusa, while you’re sampling the town’s nightlife. Porto San Paolo’s hotels also enjoy a spectacular coastal location, and offer amazing views across the waves to the jutting shark fin of a rock, which is Isola Tavolara. Take a boat trip to the island’s sand coves, or strap on an oxygen tank, and scuba dive into intriguing caves filled with fish, and outcrops of brain-shaped coral.

How to get to San Teodoro

Cagliari International Airport is the main gateway to the city, if you’re coming by air, and the city is also linked with Napoli and Trapani by ferry. You can survive without a car, if you’re simply planning to plant yourself on the beach, but with limited public transport, renting one is the only option if you’re wanting to dig a little deeper. The drive up from Cagliari takes 3 hours, or you can fly to Olbia Costa Smeralda Airport instead, which is just half an hour away from San Teodoro.
