Sardinia boasts pristine white sand beaches and turquoise waters amongst all the rustic charm and history of southern Europe. Hidden bays, rocky coves, caves and grottos litter the coasts. By boat you can explore untouched islands that seem to belong to another world.
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. Caprera is where Giuseppe Garibaldi, one of Italy’s ‘fathers’ spent his retirement, and it is possible to visit the villa he inhabited. Next, the port of La Maddalena, here you can perhaps have lunch in the pretty port town or go to any of the islands famous beaches. Spargi is an uninhabited island, and on Budelli there is the Spiaggia Rosa in the southeast, an extraordinary pink sand beach. Then, Cala Santa Maria and Porto Massimo on the northern tip of La Maddalena island. All these islands have wonderful anchorages and provide opportunities for snorkeling, swimming and exploration.
Sardinia has a Mediterranean climate and the sailing season runs from May to October. However, it is not an area for beginners. Sardinia experiences the Maestrale, Ponente, and Scirocco winds that can cause challenging conditions. Always be sure to check the local weather forecast. Note: This is a protected marine area, be sure never to anchor in sensitive or prohibited areas
