Sardinia, the second largest island in the Mediterranean after Sicily, is one of the most popular boat rental areas in the region. At anchor or in port, you will never be far from an exceptional site, isolated coves or beautiful bays that provide shelter in case of gales. A sailboat charter in Cannigione will allow you to discover the treasures of Sardinia while enjoying the pleasures of sailing. The port of Cannigione, in the north-east of Sardinia, is an excellent starting point and you will easily find a sailboat or catamaran for rent here.
Sailing in Sardinia is fairly easy but beware of the mouths of Bonifacio which separate Sardinia from the south of Corsica. Many rocks are scattered here, and the currents can be rather strong.
The best periods for boat rentals in Sardinia are May and June when the sun is guaranteed, the heat is still bearable, and nature is in full bloom.
The prevailing wind on the island and particularly in its southern part is the very dry and very hot sirocco which blows south-easterly from May to September.
Embarkation takes place at the port of Cannigione. Take the helm to Porto Cervo (4miles), a famous resort with beautiful sandy bays and perfectly translucent water.
Direction Porto Rotondo (8miles), one of the most beautiful places on the Costa Smeralda. Take advantage of a splendid bay to admire the seabed and sunbathe under a torrid sun. Then sail to Mortorio Island (3miles) and its charming bays which will be a diver's paradise.
Sail towards the island of Caprera (10miles) which will enchant you by its anchorage (Porto Palma). Set course for Isola (13miles), a charming old fishing village. The coastline has fantastic scenery with fine sandy beaches. Nearby, the pink granite rocky coves are well worth the detour.
Let yourself be carried by the waves back to Cannigione to disembark. All you have to do now is choose a sailboat charter in Cannigione!
