After a day spent relaxing at the beach, treat yourself to a cocktail as the sun sets over the sea, dine on fresh fish or enjoy an evening dancing with friends. Olbia and its surroundings have a fantastic range of restaurants and clubs.
Located in unique, spectacular settings, they are guaranteed to take your breath away. Two of the area’s most popular tourist destinations are around half an hour from Olbia: Baja Sardinia and Porto Cervo.
Other places in which to spend an enjoyable evening or night out in Olbia and its surroundings are:
Phi Beach is a magical place in Baja Sardinia, 36km from Olbia. It is one of the area’s most popular tourist destinations, with many visitors coming back to it several times during the same holiday. This exclusive seaside spot, with views of the island of La Maddalena, has something to offer everyone. From cocktails to after-dinner drinks, it is the perfect place to spend an enjoyable evening relaxing and having fun.
Renowned chefs are behind the meals served in its many restaurants, and during the summer, as well as playing host to numerous international DJs, themed evenings are organized.
The Ritual, as it is known by the locals, has a long and distinguished history. It opened in 1970 and was an immediate success, quickly becoming one of Sardinia’s hottest night spots. It is also located in Baja Sardinia.
It is housed in a castle surrounded by rocks, olive trees and myrtles. Over the years the Ritual has become something of a landmark. It has hosted several international artists and received glowing write-ups by reviewers.
It’s definitely a place to spend at least one night, if only to see its unique interior decor. With a different vibe to that found at Phi Beach, the Ritual’s clientele is much more diverse with entrepreneurs, celebrities and holiday-makers all frequenting the venue.
The Sottovento is located 26 km from Olbia, in the heart of Porto Cervo, and has been one of the island’s hippest venues for over 40 years. It’s the ideal place for dinner overlooking the sea, or a night of dancing.
Its elegant restaurant opens at 8pm, while the dance floor is open from 11pm. Its unique details and magical location make Il Sottovento an essential night-spot for visitors to the Costa Smeralda.
You won’t be disappointed! Friendly staff in all three rooms go out of their way to make all visitors feel at home.
