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 option however is our exclusive arrangement just for our clients with the owner of a luxury 45 foot catamaran. 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 owner/skipper speak English, German and Italian.

A day charter offers a memorable day, at affordable rates. The catamaran is chartered locally. The day 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.

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, pedaloes, and inflatables. Lessons are also available in both windsurfing, sailing and sub aqua.  The owner speaks very good English.
