"On the other side of the island, there's a small, more rural area called Milis, where the Nocefresca art residency is hosted. They have a variety of artists coming from around the world to create. It's a completely different vibe to the coast; more rural: with mountains, colourful buildings, fruit farms and fresh oranges every day."

"I love doing unplanned walks, stopping off at kiosks and Italian espresso bars along the way. Nothing fancy, I'm into the ones that serve robusta espresso, where you pay 1 euro, sit on plastic furniture and listen to the locals having a chat. In Cala Gonone, each morning on my morning rock-hopping adventures, I'd stop at Baby Luna along the way. Great name, simple espresso and beach views."

"There are so many beautiful spots in Sardinia that you might need to make multiple trips, but I'd recommend going to Cala Gonone. It's a quieter beachside town surrounded by huge mountains. It's quaint, beautiful, and not overly touristy: you can do hike or kayak or simply relax all week in this spot."
