San Salvatore's dusty central square was used as a film set for spaghetti westerns during the 1960s but today it's largely deserted, except for during festivals.
The village of San Giovanni Sinis is close to one of the island's most important archaeological sites, the ruins of Tharros which date from Punic and Roman times.
The beach at Piscinas is bordered by huge sand dunes, some of which are over 50 metres high.
The former mining village of Nebida is located on the coast near Pan di Zucchero, a massive block of white limestone that looms above the sea.
With a rich history dating back thousands of years, the unspoilt island of Sant' Antioco has pleasant towns, pristine beaches, rocky coves and archeological sites to explore.
Sant'Anna Arresi is a charming resort town, close to the beautiful pinewoods, lagoons and beaches of Porto Pino.
A pretty coastal town on Sardinia's southern tip, Pula is famous for its proximity to the ancient Phoenician site of Nora, which was founded in the 9th century BC.
