Welcome to Cannigione in the north of Sardinia, near the Costa Smeralda, the land of the beaches considered the most beautiful in Italy and Europe! Cannigione is a locality in the municipality of Arzachena, about 30 km from Olbia, in the north-east of Sardinia. An ancient fishing village, Cannigione began to blossom with the development of its local tourism industry and is today a renowned seaside resort. During the winter period the village has about 800 inhabitants but during the summer it becomes a modest and vibrant hub, pulsing with tourists from all over the world. In terms of yacht charter in Sardinia, the north of the island is the most popular sailing zone as it is rich in anchorages whereas the south of the island is often called at by cruise ships sailing east to west along the Mediterranean.

The Costa Smeralda
The Costa Smeralda, spanning 55km between the gulfs of Arzachena and Cugnana, is renowned for its beautiful beaches and turquoise blue waters. Also referred to as the Emerald Coast, this area is synonymous with dreamlike beaches and quiet, secluded creeks. A yacht charter in Cannigione is the perfect way to explore these creeks, which are often quite difficult to access by land. The heart of the Costa Smeralda, Porto Cervo, is a vibrant and popular social hub. During the summer months, you might catch a glimpse of some international celebs who tend to holiday here.
The Maddalena archipelago
The Maddalena archipelago is located on the northwest coast of Sardinia, off the Costa Smeralda. It consists of seven main islands (La Maddalena, Caprera, Budelli, Santo Stefano, Santa Maria, Spargi, Razzoli) and several smaller islands, encircled by the Mediterranean Sea.
Cast off to Corsica
Located in Corsica, Santa Teresa di Gallura is the closest port to Sardinia making it the perfect place to begin a tour of its French neighbour. Nearby Bonifacio, or the ‘city of cliffs’, is evidently a must-see medieval city. Heading onwards to the city of Porto Vecchio, you will be spoiled for choice in terms of anchorages and beaches… some of the most famous include Santa Giulia, Palombaggia and Cala Rossa.
Cala Santa Maria
Only a few dozen people live here year-round. There’s a cove here of the same name, accessible only from the sea. The beach has azure waters and surrounding vegetation that’s typical of the Mediterranean fauna. Definitely a detour to consider during your yacht charter in Cannigione!
Learn about Capriccoli and its surrounding beaches
- Capriccioli beach is situated 8km to the east of Cala di Volpe, south of Porto Cervo. This rather small beach surrounded with typical Mediterranean vegetation is sheltered from the wind. The waters of this beach are shallow, extremely clear and often very calm. Therefore, it is frequently chosen by families with children. The beach is divided in two parts by granite rocks.
- From here, it is possible to see the small island clusters of Soffi and La Camere. The largest island, Mortorio, is a little natural oasis that can be reached by boat or, for the more athletically inclined, it’s within swimming distance. A real paradise! Capriccioli beach is also equipped with all the necessary services. Very easy access from Oblia and Porto Cervo. The rocks here are typical of the Gallura region, weathered by the sea and the wind. Gallura granite is renowned around the world.
- Only 120 metres long, Piccolo Pevero beach is separated from the bigger Grande Pevero (300m) by a small strip of headland. It’s surrounded by bushes and Mediterranean vegetation, not to mention its crystal-clear waters. With a gently sloping seafloor and shallow depth, this beach is perfect for small children to play.
- Liscia Ruja Beach: Completed surrounded by trees, this beach is best reached by boat! Here, you can rent sun loungers and sunshades if you wish. Did you know… Liscia Ruja is also called Long Beach as it is the longest beach of the Costa Smeralda!
