The smaller resort, surrounded by untamed nature of sand dunes, pine trees and rising mountains, is particularly impressive for its beautiful beaches and low number of visitors.

Budoni is ideal for a quiet holiday or just a one-day stop during a road-trip in Sardinia.

Beaches and swimming

Most tourists head to Budoni because of the beaches. The resort boasts one beach about 2 km long, which is set in a very peaceful setting of sand dunes and small forests. Like most beaches in Sardinia, Spiaggia di Budoni is covered in fine snow-white sand, and the sea is crystal clear with a gently sloping entrance.

Except for the central part of the beach closest to the town, most of Budoni's beaches are very quiet and you'll be almost alone on the edges, even in summer. All the necessary facilities in the form of sunbeds, umbrellas, pedal boats, bars and restaurants can be used here.


The village of Budoni may be small, but it offers a wide choice of accommodation, which is slightly cheaper than in the surrounding resorts and considerably cheaper than, for example, on the famous Costa Smeralda further north.

Even in summer you can get accommodation here from 80 eur per night for 2, which is a very good price in Sardinia.
