Sailing

Your trip to Sardinia would not be complete without a day out on the sea. The north east coast offers a a constant wind so conditions are ideal for sailing, windsurfing and kite sailing.  The sheltered coves and clear waters are a true sailors paradise. The crystal clear waters are also ideal for snorkeling and sub aqua. Big game fishing is a popular pastime in the sea off Porto Rotondo. Locally there are opportunities to hire ribs, dinghy’s and windsurfers. Alternatively there are day trips locally to Isola Tavolara, La Maddalena, and further afield to Corsica.

The best options however are our exclusive arrangement just for our clients with the owner of a luxury 45 foot catamaran, and a 225hp motor boat. Charters are suitable for both couples and families, and are available from the middle of June through to the middle of September. Arrangements may be available for longer charters. The owners/skippers speak English, German and Italian.

A day charter on either offers a memorable day, at affordable rates. Both boats are chartered locally.

A day on the catamaran generally starts around 10.00am, with a gentle sail across the bay to a hidden cove for a swim. Then enjoy a glass of chilled Prosecco whilst you sail to another bay, where while you swim, snorkel and explore the rocks lunch will be cooked for you. After a hearty lunch, of pasta, salad and wine eaten under the shade of the awning, its time to relax and maybe indulge in an ice cream from the ice cream boat. Then a leisurely sail back, maybe another stop for a swim and you arrive back round 5.30pm.

A day on the motor boat, again generally starts around 10am, with a blast out to sea to visit the protected islands of Mortorio and Soffi, there will be plenty of time to swim and snorkel in the crystal clear waters. From here you will motor over to explore some of the famous beaches of the Costa Smeralda. You will need to take your own food and drink, but there will be a chance to go to a bar on one of the beaches if you prefer. The day finishes around 5.30pm.

All you need to do is take your beach towels, and snorkels.

We also have an arrangement with the windsurfing and dinghy sailing school on the local beach. Here you can hire windsurfers, dinghys, ribs, paddle boards, pedaloes, and inflatables. Lessons are also available in both windsurfing, sailing and sub aqua.  The owner speaks very good English.
