Grimaldi Lines Freight Ferry Special Offer
Sardinia is one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean. It relies heavily on the transport industry, for obvious reasons. It is also the second largest island in the Sea, with an area of 24,100 square kilometres (9,305 sq mi).
The island has a stable geology present, unlike Sicily and mainland Italy, is not earthquake-prone. Sardinia's economy is also far richer than Sicily's, in fact making the island the wealthiest region in the southern part of Italy. Sardinia is the only Italian region that produces a surplus of electricity, and exports it to Corsica and the mainland.
The Island is also unexpectedly a magnet for tourism, immigration, and its beaches - an industry dominated by visitors from Italy, France, Germany, and Britain. It is partly this tourism demand that has led to an increased dependence on the freight and transport industry over the past decade. Sardinia is also known as a tax haven.
