Hertz at Olbia Costa Smeralda Airport

Tucked away on the north-east coast of Sardinia, Olbia charms with its historic heart and laidback atmosphere. The city is also the gateway to the Costa Smeralda, one of the world’s most beautiful destinations. Mesmerizing azure waters and dazzling white powder sand beaches make up this picture-perfect coastline.

A rental car from Olbia Costa Smeralda Airport will allow you to explore the treasures of this naturally blessed part of the island at your own pace. Our pickup desk can be found inside the terminal, so you can collect the keys to your vehicle and get out on the road as quickly as possible.

Our range of vehicles includes spacious family vehicles, SUVs and compact city cars, so you can find the perfect one for your trip.

Driving in and around Olbia

A rental car from Olbia Costa Smeralda Airport is the best way to get the most out of your trip to Sardinia, where many of the beaches are remote and the island’s prehistoric sites are scattered far and wide.

As in any other city, Olbia’s roads can get busy at times. But if you’re driving from the airport to the center it should take less than 10 minutes via the Strada Statale 127 Settentrionale Sarda. Once you reach Olbia, you’ll find a one-way system is in place, so it’s a good idea to plan your journey in advance.

Beyond the city, you’ll find the island is peppered with gorgeous beaches and whitewashed towns, making it the perfect place for day trips. The roads on Sardinia are relatively quiet, making driving a fairly easy and stress-free experience.

Poltu Quatu, a quaint fishing village set around a sparkling harbor, is one of the most charming places to visit. It’s a 45-minute drive northbound along the SP125, SP73 and SP94. En route, take a little detour to Liscia Ruja beach, one of the most beautiful spots along the coast, accessed by a one-way loop.

Drive on the right in Italy. The speed limit on Strada Statale – two-lane Italian highways prefixed with SS – is 110km/h (68mph), dropping to 90km/h (55mph) on single lanes. Smaller regional roads are called Strada Provinciale, prefixed with SP, and have a speed limit of 90km/h (55mph). In urban areas the speed limit is 50km/h (31mph). Note there are no major highways – known as autostrade – on Sardinia.

A quick guide to Olbia

Olbia’s beauty is more than skin deep. Yes, on the surface its Romanesque churches, cobbled streets and shady piazzas are dazzling, but you’ll also find authentic Italian restaurants – trattorias – serving up delicious seafood and chic stores selling locally produced goods.

See the best of charming Olbia before setting off to discover the north-eastern coast, known as Costa Smeralda.

Explore Olbia’s history and sample delicious food

Spend a day exploring Olbia’s centro storico (historic center). It’s a delightful place to amble around, full of boutiques, restaurants, and café-lined piazzas. Chief among its attractions is the Museo Archeologico, which stands on its own tiny island in the harbor. Here you can learn about the city’s history, stretching from the Carthaginian and Roman eras through to its growth as a major maritime port.

After a day of sightseeing, treat yourself to a Sardinian seafood feast. Mussels and clams are the focus here and there are plenty of excellent restaurants in which to try them. Dolceacqua is one of the best, where you can indulge in steamed octopus, grilled sea bass and fish ravioli.

Discover some of the world’s best beaches

Starting at the Golfo di Cugnana, 10 miles north of Olbia, the stunning Costa Smeralda stretches for 30 miles north to the Golfo di Arzachena. The coast is framed by pearly white sand beaches and bright turquoise waters that sparkle in the sunshine.

The emerald sea fringing Spiaggia del Principe, the Prince's Beach, is breathtaking. Take a dip in the gentle, turquoise waters, then lay back on the half-moon-shaped sandy shore to admire the view of the surrounding greenery.

Liscia Ruja is another favorite beach spot. Stretching for miles, it’s one of the longest beaches on the island, offering ample room for you to relax and recuperate in the sunshine. In the distance you can see Soffi and Mortorio islands, which you can visit on a boat trip.

Experience Sardinia’s ancient culture

If you can bear to tear yourself away from the Costa Smeralda, head into the Gallura Mountains to visit the charming and traditional village of San Pantaleo, set around a picturesque piazza with cafes and artisan stores. In the summer months, the village holds a bustling weekly market, which offers a chance to pick up fresh produce and local souvenirs.

Drive north-west from here to the neighboring town of Arzachena, famous for the fascinating prehistoric monuments that are scattered around the surrounding area. Visit the Tombe dei Giganti (Tomb of the Giants), a sacred site that dates back to 2,000BC. You can also see excellent examples of Sardinia’s nuraghe – mysterious prehistoric stone towers created during the Bronze Age.
