Sardinia is an island located off the west coast of Italy, home to some of Europe’s best powdery-white beaches, lush pine forests and unique wildlife. A yacht charter here is different to the rest of Italy… with its own wine, cuisine, flora and fauna, and overall atmosphere. Sardinia boasts diverse, vibrant, charming and historical cities to discover, as well as glorious coastline, so you will not be short of activities or corners to explore. Located closer to the north coast of Africa than to mainland Italy, D.H. Lawrence described it as “belonging to nowhere”, demonstrating its distinct identity and character, and part of its appeal as a destination.
Sardinia’s sands are so glorious that they are commonly likened to those of the Caribbean! The pristine beaches and sparkling waters are reason enough to choose Sardinia as a destination for a yacht charter. Take ‘Is Arutas’ for example, where snowy-white sands meet impossibly clear waters in the Golfe Oristano, and you can surf, windsurf or kitesurf, or simply swim in the should-be-tropical waters! Or for a wilder beach, sail your yacht to the Costa Verde where ‘Spiaggia de Piscinas’ is set amongst a rugged, rocky, green coastline, with 60m of dunes and warm golden sands. For impressive scenery, start your yacht charter in the La Maddalena islands and head to the island of Caprera, where beautiful pine-cloaked rocks and cliffs border delightful sandy beaches, and sparkling, translucent aquamarine waters.
This charming fishing town on San Pietro island has become a great place for sailors as whilst being a popular spot for tourists, still remains authentic. The island boasts 20km of rocky coastline with coves, harbours and beaches, as well as salt fields home to pink flamingos; a diverse and exciting place for a yacht charter! The land is scattered with attractive, fragrant greenery; including strawberry trees, junipers, Aleppo pine and vineyards, and quaint, cobbled streets weave through the town, amongst various historical points such as the Church of San Carlo. The area is also popular for diving, so if you’re a beginner or enthusiast, bring along your gear on your yacht and explore life below the waves!
Located in north-west Sardinia, Alghero is a medieval city with an enchanting historic centre. Previously colonized by the Spanish, the air of Catalan culture still remains, giving the town a unique atmosphere. During your yacht charter, take the chance to explore gothic buildings such as Cattedrale di Santa Maria and the Palazzo, as well as a trip to Bombarde beach, where you’ll be met with crystal-clear waters and soft sands. You can also spot dolphins around the island, so keep your eyes peeled during your charter!
As with the rest of Italy, Sardinia experiences a typical Mediterranean climate, with a 6-month summer of hot, dry days with lots of sunshine. Whilst there are fairly constant winds, Sardinia can be subject to the stronger Mistral, (so you should keep an eye on regular local forecasts during your yacht charter), but generally conditions are moderate and wind speeds range between 20-25 knots.
There are 4 main international airports on the island of Sardinia: in the cities of Cagliari, Olbia, Alghero and Arbatax. If you fly into any of these you will not be far from your boarding marina, and airport-base transfers can be organized in advance if you require.
