Sardinia is the second biggest island in the Mediterranean, after Sicily, and has some of the most magnificent beaches in all of Europe. It is possibly one of the very few Mediterranean destinations with white sandy beaches and pristine turquoise waters, identical to that one can find in in the Caribbean. A yacht charter in Sardinia is the best way to discover and explore the beautiful Costa Smeralda starting from Portisco or one of the smaller bases.

During the summer, 8-12 knots winds typically blow from the northwest with local patterns around the islands. There are plenty of sheltered harbours, anchorages, and bays, although care must be taken due to tides and underwater rocks. Sardinia has a typical Mediterranean climate, with warm summer which averages between 20 and 30-degree Celsius. The local area tends to be windy due to it's proximity to a number of high wind paths. Summers in Sardinia can be long, dry, and hot, while winters are mainly short and quite warm.
The Maddalena Archipelago is a must-see for everyone visiting Sardinia. Now a preserved National Park with 7 granite islands and more than 40 islets forming breathtaking sandy bays.
There is a fee (local charge) to enter Maddalena and our charter brokers will be happy to provide you with more details regarding the cost and entrance procedure.
As winds can be quite strong in this destination, we usually recommend it to our more experienced sailors.
