Hottest European Sailing Destination
Sardinia – Emerald Coast – Corsica – Bonifacio.
Private Sailing Adventure on luxury 5 cabin yacht with Julia Yashku, awesome and fun team leader and travel pro.
Sardinia’s glamourous Costa Smeralda, or Emerald coast, is a hub for the rich and famous adorned with 5 star hotels, elite restaurants and bars and high-end designer shops. However, the most appealing aspect of this enchanting island is the seductive beaches, lapped by turquoise waters and backed by the ever-present aromatic scent of the “Macchia Mediterranea” (land perfumed by wild herbs such as thyme, rosemary and oregano). La Maddalena Archipelago national park, just off the coast of Sardinia is where some of the best beaches can be found.
A short hop away from the gorgeous northern coastline of Sardinia is the sensational Bonifacio. With its exotic cliff-top setting above layers of limestone carved by the strong straits winds, this place is a must see! The port is full of restaurants and bars, but you could also head up to the town itself for a more authentic experience.
Johnny Depp gets it. When his character Jack Sparrow stood at the helm of the Black Pearl and said ‘Bring me that horizon’, he was talking about the sailor’s endless quest for new waters and unchartered shores (or at least shores unchartered by most major cruise liners :-))).
And I think we may have found just the thing: Sardinia and Corsica. While every sailor and his dog make a beeline for the Amalfi Coast, French Riviera or the Greek Islands when they head to the Med, Sardinia and Corsica with enough home-grown wine and fresh seafood can keep anyone happy for months – but a bonus in another because, hey, no crowds !

As you know, there is Seven Wonders of the World but I think there is one more. That is Venice! Venice and its lagoon, nature and history have been closely linked since the 5th century AD when Venetian populations, to escape barbarian raids, found refuge on the sandy islands of Torcello, Iesolo and Malamocco. These temporary settlements gradually became permanent and the initial refuge of the land-dwelling peasants and fishermen became a maritime power. The small island of Rialto was chosen as the headquarters of the new city.
Day 5: Portisco to Tavolara
Sail from Portisco through Capo Figari and the Gulf of Olbia for approximately 16 nautical miles to beautiful Tavolara. This island is a limestone massif, 5 km in length and just 1 km across with impressive cliffs at either end. The bay of Spalmatore has a fantastic beach where you can anchor for the night. Take the first swim of your trip while soaking up the incredible views. The Ristorante da Tonino Re di Tavolara is an iconic, family run restaurant perfect for your evening meal where you can digest the adventures of the first day on your charter yacht.
After a leisurely breakfast on board, get underway for the Maddalena Archipelago and Caprera Island, about 21 nautical miles north of Tavolara and the second largest in the archipelago with about 45 km of coastline. Caprera has been declared a natural reserve in order to protect its full time (and only) residents the royal seagull, cormorant and peregrine falcons, so be to sure to take your binoculars as you climb the volcanic peak of Monte Teiolane from where you can see the entire archipelago stretched out in front of you. Visit the House of Garibaldi, the famous Italian’s retirement retreat. Nowadays it is a museum and memorial chapel – the island itself is also a national monument to this father of Italian independence. The south western side of the island provides many great coves and anchorages.
Day 7: Caprera Island to Bonifacio
You will have a stunning sail from Caprera to Bonifacio, one of the most dramatic natural harbours in the world. Situated on the southern coast of Corsica this town with its medieval citadel sits atop towering limestone cliffs and the entrance to the harbour is only accessed through a channel in these incredible “falaises”. A definite safe harbour from all winds! Enjoy a walk though the streets with its cafes, shops and restaurants serving the best of the local French and Corsican cuisine and marvel at the views from the top! Rent a car and spend day or two exploring Corsica with its unique nature and culture. Bonifacio, Porto Vecchio, Mount Cinto and numerous museum and galleries.
Back to the crystal waters of the Maddalena Archipelago and to Isola Budelli, considered one of the most beautiful islands of the Mediterranean. Head to the south eastern part of the island to the world famous “Spiaggia Rosa” or “pink beach”. The colour comes from microscopic fragments of corals and shells and is a stunning contrast to the greenery of this uninhabited island.
If you fancy some time onshore, the port town of Cala Gavetta on Isola Maddalena is where you can spend your next evening. The town offers shops, restaurants and pizzerias for you to explore, but there are other bays and beaches possible for your overnight anchorage. Renowned for its fabulous beaches, the island is also recognisable for its rocky granite terrain and there are ancient ruins to discover for those wishing to indulge in the history of the area.
Leaving the archipelago of La Maddalena behind you, head back to the Costa Smeralda or “Emerald Coast” and anchor in the bay of Pevero just south of the jet set hub of Porto Cervo. A perfect anchorage when the Mistral is blowing, the bay is framed by two white sandy beaches and you all no doubt want to take advantage of the crystalline waters here to swim and snorkel on your last day on board.
Day 10 2nd Part: Pevero to Portisco
You can reach Portisco from Pevero in an hour to disembark and end your charter. But maybe have one last swim before you return to base!
