On the Costa Smeralda there are many comfortable and modern marinas. The sailing season runs from April to October.
Along the Sardinian coast there are many ports, marinas and anchorages. In the north-east of the island, Sardinia has an excellent infrastructure with modern and comfortable marinas. In Porto Cervo, the center of this coastal area, there is the famous YCCS Yacht Club (Yacht Club Costa Smeralda). It is possible to find more harbors in Porto Rotondo, Poltu Quatu, La Maddalena, Palau and Santa Teresa di Gallura. In addition, bays like the Aquarium or Rondinara are good alternatives for anchorage. Olbia airport is only 45 minutes away, so the Costa Smeralda is an ideal starting point for Yachtcharter Sardinia, or trips to the island of Corsica. Cagliari is also a possible starting point. The scenery and the sailing conditions in Sardinia provide a paradise for true yachtsmen. Sailing in Sardinian waters requires some experience and good navigational skills.
Beginning your trip from Marina di Portisco, we suggest sailing north to La Maddalena National Park. This is an excellent charter area that is still somewhat undiscovered. There are several absolutely beautiful islands to sail to and a first stop could be the island of Caprera... more
Sardinia has a Mediterranean climate and experiences hot summers and mild winters. In spring and autumn, temperatures are pleasantly warm. There is a lot of sunshine and little rain. The best time for sailing is from April or May to September or October. The area offers ideal weather, but strong winds can occur. On the northern and western coast of Sardinia the winds are fairly constant. The Mistral can occur from west and the hot Sirocco that comes from the south/southeast, can create sport sailing conditions. The nozzle effect occurs between Corsica and Sardinia in the Strait of Bonifacio, and the wind speed increases by 1 to 2 Bft. On the south coast circulating winds predominate. The east coast is dominated by south/ southeast winds.
