Yes, this crystal clear water is to be found in beautiful Sardinia. And if you like to bathe in a bay like this then check out the deal that I found on and make it happen!

Fly from Dublin to Alghero and since it’s a bit of a treck to the hotel I’d recommend a rental car but below you also find the option explained to go by public transport. It will take just under 2 hours to the beautiful Sardinian landscape till you’ve reached the East coast of the island. The hotel is located in the old port town of Olbia that is also where you find the old cathedral San Simplico and the Church of St. Paul Apostle, both dating back to medieval times and worth a visit. Since you are on the east-side of the island you’ll be close to the famous paradise-like beaches on the Costa Smeralda where you can spend all day. Stay at the 4-star hotel Doubletree by Hilton (90% on Tripadvisor) which was awarded a Certificate of Excellence in 2013. The area where you’ll be in is popular for clubs, restaurants and nice shops, so you’re location is class.  From the hotel you have a fantastic view across the harbour and the sea and you can relax of course either at the beaches or use the outdoor pool. The Doubletree also has a wellness centre if you feel like a nice massage. Then, at the hotel’s restaurant Tilibas you can try out Italian delicacies or you decide to stroll to a nice little restaurant next door. Take advantage of the great location by treating yourself to a relaxed drink in the evening in one of the many cafes at the port while you watch the sun set…
