Foto BereniceFoto BereniceFoto BereniceFoto Berenice

The island of Sant'Antioco is situated southeast of Sardinia and is connected with the mother island by means of an artificial Isthmus approx. 3 km long. With her surface of approx.. 108 square kilometres the island is the largest among the "small islands" of Sardinia, second only to the island of Elba in Italy.

The island is particularly rich of uncontaminated nature and beautiful coasts, amongst which the visitor, depending upon the prevailing wind direction, can select the most protected beaches, bays or rock coasts.

But the real treat of the island is its thousands of years old historical heritage: there are numerous "Nuraghi"; founded as Phoenician colony in the 8th. Century B.C. , at the beginning of the 5th. century it became part of the Punic realm. Being the seat of the "Municipium Romanum" during the civil war it fought on the side of Pompeius.

The small town can be reached by car on the highway 130, which, departing from Cagliari, leads across Villamassarga and Carbonia to Sant'Antioco. On particularly beautiful days already from the Isthmus Sant'Antioco can be seen reflected in the crystal-clear waters of the lagoon. Passing by the old Roman bridge one crosses the modern bridge and thus arrives at the centre of the small town.

Beside the main centre of the island Sant'Antioco, with its approx. 12,000 inhabitants, there is the small town of Calasetta, founded as colony by the citizens of Genoa in 1773, and some smaller settlements, mainly bathing resorts (Maladroxia and Cussorgia).
