Don’t miss the Su Nuraxi Nuraghe – a large complex of Bronze Age nuraghes (rock structures) in Barumini, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage site. Make sure your charter itinerary includes cruises along the stunning Iglesiente Coast and Sinis Peninsular. A visit to the ultra-luxury Costa Smeralda yacht club is a must, where you will find yourself in good company on your Oyster with the superyacht set – in June they host the Giorgio Armani Superyacht Regatta.
As you would expect, with their Italian heritage, the Sardinians are passionate about food – be assured that the seafood is amazing and the pasta sublime.

The rugged, untouched landscape is diverse – from stylish coastal towns to the highest mountain, Monte Cinto (2700m). The old port at Bastia is a great place for the first stop of your charter. The beautiful city is known for its colourful houses and the Church of Saint Baptiste. It is also the starting point to Cap Corse which stretches 40 km into the Mediterranean.
Around the coast, you will find many hidden coves with sandy beaches you can have to yourself. Drop anchor, swim and relax for a few hours or a few days. The Réserve Naturelle de Scandola is a marine and land-based nature reserve, known as a destination for scuba divers. This UNESCO World Heritage site is only accessible by boat and its biodiversity is legendary – on land and beneath the waves. Divers will love the aquatic environment that is rich in coral, with grouper, moray eels, red mullets, tuna, and swordfish – if you are lucky, you may even see schools of dolphins.
It is possible to take a sailing charter in the Mediterranean at any time of the year. The peak season runs from May to October, with temperatures ranging from 24 to 36°C.
