The Italian island of Sardinia, still relatively unknown to the masses, does not reveal its secrets better than by sea. Your catamaran charter in Cannigione will allow you to discover the stunning nuraghes, or conical-shaped formations, that date from the second millennium BC. The most iconic, the Nurague La Prisgiona, stands near Olbia in Arzachena, the economic centre of Sardinia.
Cannigione is a locality in the Arzachena region, about 30km from Olbia, in the north-west of Sardinia. Once a thriving fishing village, the village has prospered as a tourism hub and is now renowned, especially among yachting enthusiasts.
Day 1: Cannigione - Palau
After your arrival at Olbia Airport (OLB), your catamaran charter in Cannigione is just a 30-minute car journey away! Once boarded and settled in, set sail for Palau. Explore its surroundings, pine forests and rocky coastline for which it is renowned. Diving in the Lavezzi Marine Reserve is an absolute must, in search of yellowbelly grouper fish, the star of the Corsican reefs!
Day 2: Palau - Porto Vecchio, Corsica
During this lengthy navigation, you’ll get to see the towns of Maddalena, Santa Maria and the islet of Corcelli and (if you’re lucky!) you may observe dolphins from aboard your boat. Drop anchor in Porto Vecchio or the ‘City of Salt’ and take your time to visit this historic city, its upper town and citadel, passing by the charming church of Saint John the Baptist. In the evening, sail down along the port where you can stop to sample some culinary specialities such as figatellu.
Day 3: Porto Vecchio - Gulf of Rondinara (Corsica)
Next up on your catamaran charter in Cannigione, it’s the Gulf of Rondinara – previously voted France’s No1 beach. You will quickly understand its reputation on discovering its bay lined with purple rocks and scrubland whose far-reaching charm also attracts the cows that come to stroll here in the off-season.
Day 4: Gulf of Rondinara - Bonifacio (Corsica)
Sail along the Gulf of Sant'Amanza to moor at Bonifacio. Discover this city built on a cliffside, admire its ramparts and fortifications and the incredible views they offer. Then, conquer the King of Aragon's stairs, carved into the cliffside. In the evening, take what the locals have hailed the "climb", and enjoy the natural light show that the cliffs exhibit.
Day 5: Bonifacio - La Maddalena (Sardinia)
Head for the Maddalena, the beautiful archipelago off the Cannigione coast. Moor at the port of Gala Gavetta and visit this charming and atypical small town. Go to the Maddalena, the capital of the island, admire the buildings with their architecture and stop at a bar/restaurant to discover the nightlife and Italian specialties such as the crespelle.
Day 6: La Maddalena - Caprera
Sail to Cala Portese south-east of Caprera via the islets of Barrettinelli. Explore the island, thought to be the last home of Garibaldi, a leading figure in Italian history.
Days 7 & 8: Caprera - Cannigione
As you approach the end of your catamaran charter in Cannigione, sail through the narrow passage that separates Isola Rossa and Isola della Pecora. Stop and swim in Porto Palma, a fine sandy beach with beautiful turquoise waters, then anchor in the port of Cannigione. Discover this charming seaside village, stroll along its wide expansive beaches, visit its port steeped in history and enjoy the peace and authenticity of the place in one of the local restaurants. After a final swim in search of the Barracudas, it’s time for disembarkation.
