In reply to hilty: Sardinia is bigger than Wales, has higher mountains, and 4000 singlepitch bolted routes as well as great MP routes. An update of its climbing areas compared to the 2011 Pietra di Luna guide can be found at

So, basically, you need to decide WHICH bit of Sardinia to go to based on what sort of climbing you want to do, the time of year and what else you want to do besides climbing. May is a goood time: days getting longer but not too hot, hardy souls start swimming in May.

In reply to hilty: Sardinia - Cala Gonone :

A small sea resort overlooking 40 km of rugged, virginal coastline in the Orosei Gulf. Almost entirely devoid of concrete, its beaches – Cala Luna, Cala Sisine and Cala Mariolu, Cala Biriola, Cala Fuili, Cala Cartoe, Cala Osalla – of various sizes, are among the most beautiful in the Mediterranean, interrupted only by coastal towers and harsh limestone cliffs.A holiday in Cala Gonone offers both an authentic return to nature, with fascinating sights from primitive times, and the most up-to-date and comfortable facilities available. A daily boat service allows you to reach the most impressive parts of the coast in only a few minutes.
Sea, sun, caves, excursions into undiscovered nature, hospitality, folklore, archaeology: This is Cala Gonone.
Cala Gonone is a magical place for climbing, certainly among the best in Sardinia. Moreover, thanks to its mild climate, a climb can be organised at any time of the year.Visited by athletes from all around Europe and beyond, these days it is a compulsory stop-off for whoever comes to the island. Its cliffs, such as the “La poltrona” – “The armchair” (so-called because of its shape), Cala Fuili, Cala Luna, Biddiriscottai, Acquaplano, Il Budinetto, Cala Golotitzé,and great overhang routes, such as the “Supramonte ” in the Gorroppu gorge, which surges upwards 400m with grades between 7c-8B, will challenge even the most able climbers. The reward, however, is a truly paradisiacal view, and one of the most spectacular panoramas in Sardinia.
Excursions: Canyon Gorroppu, Village nuragique Tiscali, from Cala Fuili to Cala Luna.
Cruise in boat of one day: beach Cala Luna – beach Cala Sisine – beach Cala Biriola – beach Cala Mariolu – beach Cala Goloritzé. Rent boat.
