Explore the best that Sardinia has to offer as you sail around this Mediterranean paradise

10 Nights: Various dates January - December

Sardinia's Costa Smeralda is a beautiful stretch of Italian coastline named after the breathtaking emerald colour of its waters. Home to miles of beautiful white sand beaches and charming port towns, it is an oasis of luxury. Enjoy this stunning landscape and explore some of the world's best beaches. Highlights include Tavolara Island, the sand bar and lagoon at La Cinta and shops at Porto Cervo. Sail to Porco, Santo Stefano and Palau before heading to Corsica’s Bonifacio through the La Maddalena archipelago. You’ll see Spargi, Budelli, Razzoli and much more. In the evenings, retire to your comfortable double cabin while our crew takes care of the sailing and meals.

Superior cabin upgrades available.

DAY 1 – SATURDAY – Olbia – Tavolara

Boarding your catamaran at our Olbia base, your captain will set sail for nine nautical miles to the protected marine area of Tavolara Island in Punta Spalmatore. Here two beaches face each other which offers the perfect shelter against prevailing winds.
Dinner and night onboard.

DAY 2 – SUNDAY – San Teodoro – Porto Rotondo – Porto Cervo

Follow up your breakfast with a swim, and a short 9-mile navigation to San Teodoro’s “La Cinta”, a long, thin stretch of golden sand between the sea and the lagoon renamed “Tahiti”, due to the similar waters.
In the afternoon, sail to Porto Rotondo (approximately 11 miles) where you will anchor in the Gulf of Marinella for dinner and overnight. From there, with the dinghy, reach the port and one of the most important tourist points of Gallura, Porto Cervo.
Dinner and night onboard.

DAY 3 – MONDAY – Baia Sardinia – Cala Bitta – Cannigione – Roccia dell Orso

Enjoy a beautiful sail of 14 miles along the Costa Smeralda towards the Gulf of Arzachena. Choose from the many anchorages and small buoys to spend the day. Sail between Baia Sardinia, Cala Bitta and Canniggione, or enjoy the Gulf of Saline. Dominated by the typical colours of Capo d’Orso, this coast is also known for Roccia dell’Orso, a rock which looks like a crouching bear.
Dinner and night onboard.

DAY 4 – TUESDAY – Palau – La Maddalena

After spending the evening in port, discover the beaches and bays between the small islands of “Porco”, Santo Stefano and Palau, crossing one of the most picturesque natural canals of the Mediterranean. In the afternoon you will arrive at the small port of Mangiavolpe, in the centre of the inhabited area of “La Maddalena”.
Dinner and night onboard.

DAY 5 – WEDNESDAY – South Corsica – Bonifacio

You will leave the port to head for the south of Corsica through the wonderful island of Spargi and islet of Spargiotto and the “Bouches de Bonifacio” heading towards the spectacular fjord of the town of the same name. The port was built at the end of the 19th century and was then colonized by the Genoese who, to protect themselves, made structural changes, including the construction of the citadel of Bonifacio as we know it today. Here you can surround yourself with history as you enjoy a walk through medieval fortifications and discover the 187-step staircase that King Alphonse of Aragon had carved out of the rock.
Dinner and night onboard.

DAY 6 – THURSDAY – Capo Pertusato – Budelli – Razzoli – Santa Maria – Gulf of Pevero

Leave Corsica and take a swim at Capo Pertusato here you will find the impressive and picturesque rock “Le Gouvernail de la Corse” (The Rudder of Corsica), named both for its shape and its position. You will then set off for 12 miles to the islands of Budelli, Razzoli and Santa Maria in the far north of the Maddalena archipelago, protected by the regulations of the National Park.

The “Rosa” beach on the island of Budelli, is lauded by many as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It owes its name to the colour of the sand, rich in tiny fragments of coral, granite, and shells. From here you will sail around Maddalena Island and Caprera. Caprera is the largest island of the archipelago, and is a fully protected area. Connected by a 600-meter bridge built in 1958, in addition to its beauty and unspoiled nature, the island is famous for having been the last residence of Italian general Giuseppe Garibaldi. He lived there for 26 years and left many relics preserved in one of the most visited museums in Italy, the Garibaldi Compendium.

Sail to the Gulf of Pevero 14 miles away where you will spend the night. For those who wish to spend a lively evening, you can reach the marina in a few minutes with the dinghy. The pedestrian area offers many shops and bars.
Night onboard.

DAY 7 – FRIDAY – Pevero – Romazzino – Principe – Cala di Volpe – Olbia

The last morning of your trip will allow you to enjoy a magnificent sunrise in front of the spectacular beach of Grande Pevero. Shaped like a half moon, at night it reflects its own light and is one of the most popular beaches for tourists who come to discover Costa Smeralda. You will continue to the beaches of Romazzino and Principe (named after the Arab prince Aga Khan, founder of the Costa Smeralda) and Li Ittricceddi 6 miles away. After 3 miles of navigation opposite the promontory of “smeraldino”, you will discover four charming beaches. Cala di Volpe, Liscia Ruja, Petra Bianca and Petra Niedda, await you with their very fine and clear sand, protected by yellow-pink granite. Here you can dive into the brilliant blue sea before continuing to sail to our base in Olbia for the last 16 miles. Dinner and night onboard.
