1 week from Portisco
Once you arrive at the base you'll be met by the
charter company and once you've checked-in you'll be shown to your
boat and after a quick briefing you're ready to relax! Portisco is a
great place to spend your first night rubbing shoulders with the
superyachts that often pick up their rich and famous clients here.
From Portisco it's a around a 15 mile sail up to the Maddalena
Islands. These are a stunning set of islands that lie to the
northeast of Sardinia and their beautiful beaches and clear waters
make them a popular sailing destination.
An ideal first stop
in the Maddalena Islands is Spiaggi I due Mare. A beauiftul starting
point on the island of Caprera in the Maddalena Islands.
Spiaggi I due Mare sail north to Spalmatore. There's a small port
here for you to moor up in and the beach here is easy to spot as
it's surrounded by pink coloured rocks making it quite the photo
After Spalmatore continue north to the famour
Spiagga Rosa. You might have read about this place, here you'll get
to see first hand the beach that's sand appears pink due to the bits
of coral and seashells that are mixed in with the sand. The best way
to see this beach is from a boat (how convenient!)
you've seen the iconic pink beach continue further north to the
island of Santa Maria. Santa Maria is part of the Baunei Island and
the town is full of character with ancient ruins, tombs and
megalithic burial grounds all waiting for you to discover them.
From the Maddalena Islands did you know you can sail to Corsica?
It's under 15 miles to the southern tip of Corsica from Santa Maria
and a lovely sail. So we suggest popping over the Bonifacio and
experiencing from french influences for a night. You might recognise
the town when you get here as its the setting for the famous film V
Once you've spent the night in the scenic town
of Bonifacio why not head back down to the island of Spargi in the
Maddalena Islands. Spargi island is part of the Maddalena National
Park and has many species of protected birds, there's also the
Maritime Musuem which has artifacts and remains from Roman ships.
A great last stop before heading back to base is the island of
La Maddalena itself, this town is bustling but concentrated meaning
there are plenty of quiet corners on the island waiting for you to
And finally its back to Portisco for one last
night, the charter company usually like the boats to be back between
4-6pm and this gives you time to have a final italian feast before
heading home the next day.
2 weeks from Portisco
Once you've arrived at Portiisco, just a
short transfer from the airport, you'll be met by the base staff.
They will help you check in before a comprehensive boat briefing
after which you're free to relax and start your holiday! We suggest
an well-earned waterside beer after a long days travelling.
On your first day, we recommend easing into things with a nice short
sail down the coastline, to Marinella. Here you'll find a great
beach where you can do diving and watersports.
a it is a good sail is over to the island of Tavolara. It's quite a
spectacular sight to see. From the sea the island looks like a huge
limestone rock rising up out of the sea. There are some lovely
beaches and ports here to moor up in. Due to its beauty there are
restrictions on development maintaining it as an untouched gem.
From Tavolara a short sail back to the mainland takes you to the
Golf Aranci. This gulf's name comes from the crabs that are found in
the area and there are some stunning beaches to explore where you
can go scuba diving. As well as this, the enchanting Cala Moresca
pine forest which is a short walk from the port is worth exploring
and if you have time the remains of the Sacred Well of Milis is also
worth a look.
From Golf Aranci why not then head up to the
Maddalena Islands, this is around a 20-25mile sail and on the way
you'll see some stunning Sardinian coastline.
Islands are the main attraction for the Sardinian sailors and it's
not hard to see why. With their untouched beauty clear to see we
suggest you stop at a few of the islands here on the west side of
Starting at Spiaggi I due Mare which can be
found on the island of Caprera, one of the southernmost islands in
the group. This is a great starting point from the Sardinian
mainland and here you'll find a unique beach that has sea on two
sides and therefore is named the beach of two seas. The waters vary
from emerald green to clear blue depending on the time of day.
Following on from Caprera head north to Spalmatore. The beach
here is the main attraction with pink rocks surrounding it and
lovely white sand in between.
From Spalmatore a short hop further north to
Santa Maria is a great next days sail. The old town here is lined
with olive trees and contrasts starkly to the modern marina which
was only built in 1998. The porphyry rocks here that surround the
beach are quite stunning due to their orangey red shade.
the picturesque Maddalena islands if you fancy it why not make the
sail up to Corsica and explore some of the french influences that
the island has to offer.
It's about a 25-30 mile sail to
Porto Vecchio from the Maddalena Islands and its well worth the
trip. Porto Vecchio is known as the St Tropez of Corsica and with
its vibrant cafes, designer boutiques and well-equipped marina we
can see why. This town manages to mix both idyllic unspoilt beaches
with its breathtaking mountainous backdrop.
Once you've had
your fill of chic Porto Vecchio sail south down to Bonifacio. This
town is right on the southern tip of Corsica and here you can sit
back and relax in a cafe listening to the french speaking locals as
they pass by you. You might also know this place due to it being the
setting for the famous film V for Vendetta.
From the french
towns of Corsica you can head back south to Sardinia and explore the
western islands in the Maddalena archipelago, starting in Spargi.
Spargi is is part of the Maddalena National Park and there are
lots of protected species of birds here that live amongst the
vegetation. There are also some remains of Roman shipwrecks to
explore in the Maritime Museum there.
After Spargi a nice
short sail is to Palau on the mainland. Palau is one of the most
noteworthy seaside towns on the Emerald Coast. Its artistic looking
coastlines are shaped by the wind and perhaps the most famous part
of the coastline is the dell'Orso which is a rock that looks very
similar to a bear, quite a sight! Palau is also a mecca for
watersports, from windsurfing to diving you can do it all here.
After Palau why not pop back over to the Maddalena islands one
last time and head to Maddalena itself. The town here is buzzing
with activities and nightlife but there are also plenty of quiet
corners of the island you can discover too.
Porto Cervo has
to be your last stop before heading back to Portisco. The town
attracts celebrities by the bucket full in summer with their super
yachts visibly anchored out from the harbour. If it's exclusive
champagne bars and designer boutiques you're after then Porto Cervo
is a great stop, and don't worry you can still find some reasonably
priced places to eat and drink mixed in with the garages filled with
Rolls Royces and the Harrods boutique!
After Porto Cervo it's
time to head back to base, the sail back to Portisco is a lovely
last sail and not a long one at that. Most charter companies expect
you to be back in the marina between 4-6pm giving you one last
evening to enjoy a true Sardinian feast!
