Alghero and surroundings – Activities to do with children
As we described in our little biography, we know what it means to travel with only one child in tow.
The Pintadera Bed & Breakfast in Santa Maria la Palma Alghero wanted to encourage the trip with their children by proposing a special promotion that you can find here.
In our structure you can have all the comforts even for the little ones, such as cradle or cot, stroller, travel or table chair, microwave etc. The property has a large outdoor area and a garden with some games for children, fenced and free of dangers.
We therefore want to describe all the possible activities that here in Alghero or in the surroundings you can do with the children so that you can fully enjoy your holiday.
Here are some of the activities available in our vicinity
By bike and on foot
First of all, we can say that Alghero boasts one of the longest and most well-structured bike paths in Sardinia, so by renting bikes or using the bike-sharing service it is possible to cross a large part of the city and the coast, with the possibility to stop in the different Refreshments to eat an ice cream, a sandwich or buy some souvenirs.
In the center of the city and in the immediate vicinity there are also playgrounds for children.
On the coast of Maria Pia you will find a beautiful and fresh pine forest, where you can take a walk to take a break from the summer heat, discover plants and flowers typical of the area and why not, stop and have a picnic on the different wooden tables prepared all the way.
A few minutes drive takes you to the Park of Porto Conte, a protected area where, with expert feet guides, or with your own car, you can visit it, and catch a glimpse of wild animals and learn about the various species of plants in the area .
From here you can also take nature trails and trails in the woods, to explore the beautiful nature reserve, have a picnic and play outdoors.
Sea, beach and adventure
A little further on, near the village of Fertilia and on the Maria Pia beach, inflatables are set up on the water, where you can have fun for a few hours with the whole family (Splash Aquapark Alghero).
From the marina you can do a lot of boat trips, from dolphin hunting, to visiting the Neptune Caves or other activities related to the sea and fun in the water.
From July to September the entire area of the port is closed to traffic and the jousts are the master, also open until late at night to entertain young and old alike.
Continuing on the coast you arrive at the beach of the bombards where, an adventure park called “Le Ragnatele”, offers children even smaller paths in the woods to try their hand at climbing or adventures of various kinds. In the immediate vicinity there is also the possibility to have a picnic or a barbecue with areas equipped for this purpose.
In the town of Sorso, still under the province of Sassari, about 35 minutes drive is the water park “Water Paradise” medium-sized, with a block of slides like “anaconda” and two Kamikaze, wave pool, area children and some sporting activities such as the soapy calcetto.
Animals and countryside
In all the villages adjacent to our B & B there are also many educational farms where you can take the children live live in the country, see many animals up close and maybe try to try some farm activities.
Also in our B & B there is a small vegetable garden where we can accompany the most curious children to see how the land is grown and how the various crops grow.
In Olmedo is the butterfly house, a biosphere of about 400 species, a unique emotion for children who will be able to closely observe many colorful butterflies, enjoy the pool, a nice playground, refreshment areas in the park and bar.
This is what we can suggest for a pleasant holiday, not forgetting that we are surrounded by the most beautiful beaches of northern Sardinia with shallow and crystalline water, which are mostly equipped and suitable even for children.
