How do I get around in Sardinia???

I am planing a holiday in Sardinia in July 2007. I have read lots of websites and reviews about Sardinia but I would be really grateful if somebody could tell me the answer to one important question:

How do I get around from one marvelous beach/place to another in Sardinia? I don't have adriving licence so I won't be able to rent a car. Are the any other options, and how viable are they?

Thank you in advance.

RV

Update:

I am planning to fly to Alghero, but stay somewhere else, a few days in Sistino (have seen pictures of Pelosa beach) and a couple more days somewhere else alond the north-west coast.

I know there are little coves and bays in the area, but am not sure how will I get there.

    Sardinia where?

    How long you want stay there?

    For example Cagliari is simple to visit in a bus or for a walk.

    There are so many things to visit such beaches, port, museum etc.

    You can go in any city or town using a bus but, once you are there you need to find another solution .

    If you'll choose to live in a place close to the beach you can plane to use go for a walk (a lot of people from Germany use bicycle), a place for example can be Tortoli. Here in Usa I don't see a lot of people go wor a walk, but there it's normal go for a walk.

    Taxi are very expensive.

    For Alghero the best way is go for a walk or bicycle (if you can rent one), Italian people are very friendly, maybe you can make some friend and go around with they in their car.

    That's tough....especially with out a car..The bus system is fairly good in the summer time because it is peak travel season. I really think the bus is your only choice. Taxi's are available also, but expensive. I lived in Lamaddalena, Sardinia for two years. They have some beautiful beaches there and the island has a public bus.

    To get there from the Olbia airport there is a bus that will take you to Palau. Hop on the ferry over to Lamadd and the bus will pick you up right off the ferry..Have a great time, I really miss Sardinia!!

    Be prepared-Sardinia is very crowded in the summer. You will be limited as to where you can go without a car, but there is bus service available. And you might cross paths with others and travel with them. It happens!
