Sardinia yacht charterThe second-largest island in the Mediterranean, Sardinia is also one of the most beautiful. From the city of Cagliari in the south to old coastal towns such as Alghero in the north, there is a rich mixture of architecture and culture.
The island’s stone tepee-like structures, the Nuraghe, are among the oldest constructions known to man; while the Sardinian language, Sardo, is still spoken along with Italian and several other local dialects.
Food-lovers wax lyrical about the seafood on Sardinia, claiming that the island’s lobster is the finest in the world. Wood roast suckling pig and wild boar are also delicacies.
On shore, designer shops add to the heady mixture of fabulous restaurants and exclusive bars. This emerald coast offers plenty of natural beauty too, deep bays and clear seas – thanks to rocky shores – all make this a great place to use all those watertoys and get in some diving and swimming.
The stretch from Golfo Aranci to Baia Sardinia covers 55 kilometres, and undoubtedly offers some of the most beautiful sailing waters in the world, with abundant wind and sunshine. Even the mistral can’t dampen the hot dry days of June-August (most rain falls from October-February creating the lush green interior).
Those who love to snorkel recommend the Archipelago della Maddalena, the first national park in Sardinia, which boasts 60 islands and islets. The best of the beaches are Liscia Ruja, with its splendid half-moon shape; Cappriccioli, framed by pink granite rocks; and Romazzino. For golf aficionados, there is Il Pevero, one of Europe’s most spectacular courses.
Cala di Volpe: This large bay is a popular spot – beautiful beaches, great watersports, and close to fashionable Port Cervo. With an exclusive resort at its head, and plenty of secluded coves bordered by pink granite boulders, there’s something for everyone here…
Porto Cervo: beautifully developed superyacht-orientated harbour on the exclusive Costa Smeralda. Designer boutiques and high-class restaurants nestle amongst its perfect whitewashed lanes.
