Days 1-7 - One week boat charter
Accommodation: 3* Sailing yacht one (Cruise) Full Board
Arrive at the base in Caggione to check in. Once at the base you will receive your pre-cruise chart briefing and then spend your first night aboard the boat.
Your first day of Sailing now that you’ve enjoyed a restful night aboard, it’s time to head out onto the shimmering Tyrrhenian Sea to your first port of call, the lovely and world-famous Porto Cervo. The passage is relatively short passage north out the Gulf of Arzachena into Sardinia Bay, and then southward to one of the prettiest harbors in Italy where you can enjoy a first-class marina, fine dining, and exclusive nightclubs.
You will also continue sailing among the smaller islands of the Maddalena marine park – picturesque, uninhabited, and teeming with wildlife. Beautiful white sandy beaches fringe the shores, presenting an ideal setting for swimming and snorkeling in crystal clear water, though landing and overnight anchoring is prohibited. Beaches are a wonderful day stop before sailing northward to Caprera Island deeper into the Maddalena archipelago.
Caprera Island has an abundance of beautiful places to anchor, making it well worth spending the day simply sailing and taking in the marvelous scenery. A visit to Caprera Island wouldn’t be complete without going ashore to explore and to check out the Garibaldi Museum, home of an Italian hero from the 19thcentury. The swimming and snorkeling in the crystal clear waters is excellent.
The close by Maddalena Island is wild, rugged, and mainly uninhabited, but of all the islands within the archipelago it’s the only one with a small town at the port of Cala Gavetta, which has services for yachts, including dockage.
A carriage road leads to the top of diminutive Monte Guardia Vecchia (elevation 511 feet) and makes for a pleasant afternoon stroll rewarded with magnificent views of the mainland and surrounding islands.
The final leg of your week sailing takes you from Cala Gavetta on Maddalena Island back to the beautiful Cannigione, where you can relax over an excellent meal in one of the restaurants in town after you arrive at the base by 5:00 P.M. to check out the boat.
(You can also rent a boat with or without the cruise and choose where you want to go and what you want to do)
Days 8-13 - Palau, Porto Pollo
Accommodation: 5* Valle Dell Erica Bed & Breakfast
After leaving the boat you will be picked up by a private tranfer and driven to your next destination, Porto Pollo. Here we reccommend the Valle Dell Erica as they are located in a great spot close to the beach, though we can make this tour for any of the accommodation we offer in Porto Pollo.
Make your way down to the beach where you can either take lessons, rent equipment, or launch your own kit and enjoy a full day on the water, or sunbathing on the beach.
In the evening you could visit the lively town of Palau, or relax in the laid back evening atmosphere in Porto Pollo.
