Sardinia is a mighty island packed full of adventure and natural scenery. In order to help inspire your private yacht hire, we have compiled a list of our top recommendations.
With nearly 2,000 kilometres of coastline with a mix of sandy and rocky shores, going to the beach is a must. Our top recommendation is to take your yacht and navigate along the Costa Smeralda at your own pace, stopping whenever you find a beach that you are happy with. This being said, one of the most popular spots in Sardinia is Neptune’s Grotto. Located on the western coast of the island, you will find this magical cave in the middle of Capo di Caccia. Similarly, you can take several day trips in Sardinia with your yacht. For instance, head towards San Pietro island on the southwest part of the island for a quick escape from the busy tourist crowds. Another option is to travel 20 minutes from the port of Palau towards the Maddalena Islands. This small archipelago next to Sardinia is perfect for those of you interested in peace and quiet in crystal clear waters. The small group of islands has around seven larger islands and 55 islets, so there is so much to explore!
When you are ready to disembark from your private yacht, head towards Porto Rotondo or Porto Cervo for a buzzing atmosphere and small boutiques. Sardinia is filled with charming villages such as Santa Maria on the east coast or Villasimius. If you want to see a typical castle of Sardinian origin, head to Castelsardo to witness the castle that is over 1000 years old!
One of the greatest advantages of hiring a private yacht in Sardinia is the island's close proximity to other amazing destinations. If you have the time for an extended adventure, you can navigate across more of the Mediterranean! On one hand, you can head west towards the Balearic Islands such as Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza.
