Yacht Charter Sardinia

Sailing_SardiniaThe yacht charter area of Sardinia is a slightly more demanding Yacht Charter beat with the Maddalena Archipelago and the Strait of Bonifacio in the North. Especially due to the closeness to Corsica there is a range of possibilities for yacht charter Sardinia sailors. A circumnavigation is only partly advisable since there are hardly any harbours or bays on the west coast. Yacht Charter Sardinia bases are Carloforte and Cagliari in the South, Alghero on the Northern west coast, Canniglione and also La Maddalena, Olbia, Portisco – one of the most popular yacht charter Sardinia bases – and Porto Rotondo.

Alghero, a town with an imposing city wall and mediaeval charm, is easily accessible via plane; from yacht charter Sardinia tourists may want to do a trip towards Northeast and Maddalena. The Maddalena Archipelago is a must for yacht charter crews sailing around Sardinia: The most interesting of the seven larger islands are Caprera and La Maddalena, Santa Maria, Spargi; Razzoli and Budelli are smaller but scenically also very appealing. Bays with emerald coloured waters and almost completely white dream beaches take turns in the North and on the east coast, fascinating for yacht charter Sardinia crews. Costa Smeralda near Porto Cervo flaunts cliffs, islands with an exclusive ambience, though admittedly with adequate prices. Arbatax on the east coast is very popular as a homeport among Sardinians.

Also the south coast from Cagliari or Carloforte and with the offshore islands of San Pietro and San Antioco is wonderful and not at all overrun at that. Yacht charter Sardinina crews who have some spare time should explore the interior of the island. There is a long stretched mountain range covered in macchia in the heartland, which is worth seeing and also home to many hidden “ristorantes” with fantastic Sardinian cuisine… with wild boar and baby chevon, local wine, aromatic herbs…

The Sardinians don’t really regard themselves as Italians; they cultivate their own idiom and their peculiarities. The island may be touristically developed in some areas and offers anything yacht charter Sardinia crews might need, but is by no means overrun. Sardinia, often target of conquerors and occupiers that have deforested the virgin forests, has still retained much of its origins and its genuineness.
