Sardinia, with its magnificent rocky interior and coastline, is the second largest island in the Mediterranean. Recent years have seen many fine crags develop across the island, with countless single and multi-pitch sport and traditional routes. We base our holidays in the beautiful Cala Gonone area to match the climbing.


Rock Climbing in Sardinia

Cala Gonone is still not that well discovered and most of the time you can find yourself on a very quiet crag - and within sight of fantastic Mediterranean views. There's also a canyon that offers a great playground for the more experienced climber seeking a new challenge. Climbs are easily accessible here and you never seem to be walking more than 5-10 minutes to find the start of the crag.


There is also the opportunity to take a boat to another climbing location a few kilometers along the coast that is well worth visiting. Simply ask one of the Rock & Sun team for more information on how to organise this experience. 


Local people provide a welcome atmosphere, and there's some excellent Italian cuisine to enjoy.

Weather & Climate in Sardinia

The summer climate can be extremely hot, but the weather is often perfect for climbing in April and May - when there are also fewer tourists in the region.


Accommodation in Sardinia

We offer some well-equipped bungalows, conveniently located for the crags and within walking distance of Cala Gonone village with its small harbour and gorgeous beaches. Each bungalow can sleep a maximum of 4 people, and offers:


  • Kitchen area with full cooking facilities
  • Bedroom area
  • Bathroom
  • Toilet
  • Private porch to relax with a glass of wine at the end of a day's climbing
