Next, head to the southwest islands of Sant’Antioco and San Pietro. Here, spend the night in the charming fishing village of Carloforte. By day, retrace the past at Sant’Antioco’s many museums and the ancient town of Ipogeo. Adventure seekers can also experience the islands on horseback.
Back on the Water
Back on the water, sail up the west coast to the Sinis Peninsula and visit San Giovanni di Sinis Beach. While on the peninsula, don’t miss the Phoenician town of Tharros. Nearby, you can also enjoy fresh seafood after a fishing expedition in the area’s coves.
Venturing north towards Alghero, traverse Neptune’s Grotto in Porto Conte’s natural park. Afterwards, set sail for Capo Falcone, in the northwest corner of Sardinia. Anchor in charming Stintino where you can golf, cycle, and go diving. Across the water, visit the island of Piana before sailing to Asinara, a protected nature reserve, and home to many donkeys.
Tropical scenery awaits you in northeastern Sardinia. With vivid green waters, the Costa Smeralda (Emerald Coast), is a must on your yacht charter to Sardinia. Drop anchor in Porto Cervo, a lively town known for great shopping and dining.
While visiting the Costa Smeralda, you can explore the area’s beaches, go hiking or play golf above the serene waters. Interested in wine? Try the local Vermentino white wine with a wine tasting visit to a vineyard. Nearby, nightlife and more top restaurants can also be enjoyed in Baja Sardinia.
Costa Smeralda highlights
The main attraction of the Costa Esmerelda is of course the Maddalena Archipelago, a national park of 7 islands. Together, they form a paradise of pink beaches, and shallow bays for swimming, snorkeling, and relaxing. Visit the largest island of La Maddalena. Then take in the old town’s historic charm, and dine on delicious cuisine.
With a rugged, mountainous interior, the island of Corsica is also best navigated by water. Starting in the south near Sardinia, soak up Corsica's Genoese past in Porto Vecchio. Next, set sail for the Lavezzi Archipelago, including a stop on the exclusive island of Cavallo.
Southern Corsica and Bonifacio
Back on the mainland, kayak, windsurf or play a round of golf on the cliffs above the point of Sperone. Drop anchor in the picturesque port and clifftop town of Bonifacio. Onshore, take a walk along the dramatic coast and enjoy the panoramic view from the Citadel.
Sailing north up the west coast will lead you to Ajaccio, the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte. Moreover, you can visit one of the city’s many museums or the 16th Century Genoese Tower. In addition, combine this with a visit to the nearby Sanguinaires Islands.
While journeying further north, view the Calanques of Piana, an unforgetable geological rock formation. After sailing around the Scandola nature reserve, relax in Calvi. The bay town boasts Baroque churches, a Cathedral and awe-inspiring views of the Citadel. It's also the highly contested birthplace of Christopher Columbus.
Venture east to fishing villages like the Ile Rousse, or the beautiful town of Saint Florent. Here, you can boat to Saleccia beach, stroll the old town or partake in the shopping and nightlife. Nearby, you can even hike in Europe’s only desert, the Agriates.
