Sailing in Sardinia

Sailing in Sardinia is a wonderful experience thanks to the crystal clear water and the unique coves of this island. The north of Sardinia with its 1897 km of coastline, is a real paradise, for its nature and vegetation, but also for the tradition and culture. There are many diffrents ports where you can hire a sailingship or you can book some excursions to the most beautiful beaches.

We recommend you to sail to the National Park of La Maddalena, where you can enjoy some of the popular beaches, like Spiaggia Rosa (whose colour of the seabed is given by the shells of a particular single-celled organism), the Spiaggia del Cavaliere in the island of Budelli or the beaches of Cala Coticcio. The National Park of La Maddalena is also very important from a cultural and historical point of view as there is the house where Giuseppe Garibaldi spent the last time of his life and which today is a museum of memories and history of one of the greatest Italian personalities of the eighteenth century.

The east-coast is the most popular coast for sailers because the sea is smaller and more protected from the mountains at this coast. The aera around Olbia, Costa Smeralda is known as hotspot for all who are interested in boats. At the port of Porto Cervo you can see some of the most expensive yachts in the world. In the whole east-coast area are also small ports where you can anchor and enjoy the small villages at the coast and eat some tipical sardinian food. But have absolutely also a look to the west-coast of the island with his stunning red rocks like for example at Costa Paradiso. The rocky coast offers unique coves and rocks formed by the water and the wind over years and years.

But of course we recommend you, if you have time, to sail around the whole island, there are so many nice points to stop and explore. From Nuraghes to untouched beaches and coves it will be an unforgettable holiday.
