Sardinia has some of the most magnificent beaches you’ll find in Europe. The sand has that beautiful white colour that you can mostly find in the Caribbean and the sea the bluest blue. Costa Smeralda with its scalloped bays is the ideal place to drop anchor and swim in the crystal clear emerald waters. Play castaway on the Golfo di Orosei’s coves, where sheer cliffs ensure seclusion, or sail to La Maddalena’s cluster of granite islands. The island is also a culinary paradise, with great varieties of pasta, bread and dolci its own wines (Vermentino whites, Cannonau reds) and cheeses.

Our Sardinia Sailing Itinerary will help you get the most out of your trip. Sardinia is an island with an amazing coastline, puzzling history and heritage, exceptional cuisine and wine. Sardinia captivates with its wild interior, dazzling beaches and endearing eccentricities.

Our Guide to the Sardinia Sailing Itinerary

There is no better way to discover the real Sardinia than sailing; the most beautiful beaches and bays of the Costa Smeralda wait for you to explore them. Either you prefer a flotilla or a bareboat charter, this itinerary is the ideal one to follow, in order to discover the hidden beauties of the island.

Our Sardinia Sailing Itinerary covers the best areas to explore, starting from Portisco. You will visit many islands and will go North, up to Bonifacio in Corsica and then return back to Portisco, after visiting, of course, the beautiful city of Olbia. Bon Vent!

Getting There

Our Sardinia Sailing Itinerary begins in Portisco Marina which is located in the beautiful Costa Smeralda bay, just between Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo. If you fly to Olbia Airport, you can easily find transfers, since it's only 10 minutes away. It is a natural Green Bay and is ideal for sailing as it offers a variety of services and facilities in a warm and welcoming environment.

Mooring

During high season - from mid-July to late August - the sailing area between Corsica and Sardinia becomes over-crowded. The mooring fees can be very high during this season, especially in Costa Smeralda, with Porto Cervo taking the prize for the highest charges in the world (several hundred euros overnight for a 10m yacht). Away from the Costa Smeralda, marinas offer much more value and this actually makes them busier all summer long - we suggest that you book your place in advance.

Weather

Sardinia has a typical Mediterranean climate, with warm summer which averages between 20 and 30-degree Celsius. The local area tends to be windy due to it's proximity to a number of high wind paths.
