A pleasant day's sailing through Capo Figari, the Gulf of Olbia and between Tavolara and Molara. You can put at anchor in the bay of Spalmatore (excellent backdrops for anchoring), right in front of a beautiful beach, you can swim and enjoy a fantastic view. In the evening you can eat in the restaurant "Re di Tavolara."



The Island of Caprera is part of the Maddalena Archipelago, and is with connected to La Maddalena Island with a bridge. It is a Natural Reserve. You can climb till the top of Monte Teialone and Poggio Stefano and look at the Archipelago. All around rosa granite rocks paint a wonderful landscape. Cala Coticcio is on the eastern side of the island. Small and narrow like a fjord. Southeast is Cala Brigantina, a narrow bay protected by the rocks. South you must see Punta Rossa, the beaches of Cala Portese, Porto Palma and l’isoletta del Porco. To be seen is also Cala Garibaldi, where the famous hero landed to reach his house. On the north are wonderful and from the land inaccessible beaches like Cala Napoletana, Cala Serena and Cala Caprese.

To be seen on the island is the House of Garibaldi, today a museum.










Gods couldn't make a better present to Corsica than Bonifacio! A white vessel ready to leave the country and sail to the sea. The charm of its narrow streets leading to the Citadel.

Fascinating is the entry to the harbour, from far it seems like a split in the white limestone cliffs, inside the fjord, there is a meander, where boats stop if the harbour is full. After it Bonifacio!

Remember you will be in France and you can find the “baguettes” and the “crêpes”.

North Sardinia Sail tip: go up to the Citadel, especially in the windy days.

Budelli is part of the Maddalena Archipelago, is famous for the legendary “Spiaggia Rosa” (“Pink Beach”). The coral sand colour, the colour intensity of the sea and shape of granite rocks that surround the set it are an unique spectacle in the world, a natural monument to be observed in religious silence.

The “Spiaggia Rosa” of Budelli was immortalized by filmmaker Michelangelo Antonioni with a long sequence in the film "Red Desert”

La Maddalena





It’s a beautiful bay, just behind the marina of Porto Cervo. It is covered from Mistral, so when it is blowing, the marina can be full. The landscape is a fable, two beautiful sandy beaches, on the hill the famous Costa Smeralda’s villas with their green gardens.

With an hour sailing you can reach Portisco and the Gulf of Cugnana.

Sea, luxurious, nightlife
Porto Cervo today is the symbol of the Costa Smeralda, of luxury tourism and VIPs, of trendy cafés, restaurants and yachts, but also as a privileged place of where you can watch the international jetsetters.

The coastline of Sardinia is an extraordinary sailing destination with hundreds of secluded bays, idyllic beaches and dramatic rock formations. Sardinia boasts an attraction for many by the diversity of its coastline; from the dunes of the Costa Verde to the green bays and spectacular cliffs of Cala Gonone.

Striking at the fantastic Costa Smeralda are the magical beaches and a system of villages built according to a detailed urban plan. The area is a luxury tourist destination where very wealthy European and Arab VIPs visit in the summer.

Weather and wind conditions in the North of Sardinia are the most constant. That means that most sailors come to the Costa Smeralda. The Costa Smeralda is also an excellent base for exploring the famous Maddalena Islands on the way to the French island of Corsica.

There are two winds that are responsible for the stunning sailing conditions; the Sahara wind and the Maestrale. The Maestrale blows mostly along the West Coast, and for a few days can bring very powerful W to NW winds. While along the East Coast a S to SE wind dominates.
