Charter a Yacht in Sardinia
A Luxury Charter to Sardinia
To Corsica’s immediate south is Sardinia, the second-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, but unlike its northern French counterpart, Sardinia is an Italian country. However, Sardinia’s Italian sovereignty is only the modern tip of its winding, ancient history. The island is one of the most geologically ancient lands in all of Europe, with the first of its many waves of immigrants to settle in its diverse lands during the Upper Paleolithic and Mesolithic periods. Throughout its lifetime, Sardinia has seen countless numbers of peoples, civilizations, conquerors, and invaders.
Crafting Your Private Charter Itinerary to Sardinia
When traveling throughout Sardinia’s rugged landscape, remnants of its mysterious, eventful past dot the earth in the form of thousands of nuraghi, Bronze Age ruins shaped like beehives. You’ll also surely stumble upon Su Nuraxi di Barumii, Sardini’s famed ruin of what was once a defensive complex built around 2,000 B.C.,, outfitted with a series of circular towers modern for its time.
Cliffs, grottos, and caves are the stuff of Sardinia. Visit Neptune’s Grotto and take the steps down to a seafront cavern adorned with impressive stalactites. At Grotta del Bue Marino, take a boat tour along an illuminated, three-mile cave with stalactites, stalagmites, and wall carvings of a long passed Neolithic era. At Cala Luna, find the cove in the sea of rocky headlands with a small sandy beach tucked away by bright, turquoise waters, and at Capo Caccia, hike the routes to find archeological remains, or dive the clear waters amidst the secluded caverns. At Cala Goloritzé, nature is an architect, creating a stone arch along this untouched piece of white beach where pebbles wash on its quiet shores.
At Gorropu Gorge, walk through the canyon—or hop in a Jeep—on a guided tour in this national park. Take to the heights at Supramonte, where hiking trails will lead you up the limestone mountain past archaeological sites and above slate gray canyons. For a tranquil afternoon spent in clear waters, look nowhere else than Cap Testa, a coastal spot with trails, sandy beaches, and coves cupped by white-gray rocky bluffs. Cala Sisine offers its beachgoers with fluffy white sands and a day spent beneath the warm rays of a Mediterranean sun. Bombarde Beach, too, is a hotspot blanketed with plush sugar-white sands amid the gem-blue waters of the sea.
Sardinia has thousands of ancient ruins that scatter its craggily, jagged land. Nuraghe Palmavera is left from the Bronze Age, a settlement still in recognizable shape, and Tiscali, another Bronze Age remnant was once a village that takes its modern visitors back into a simpler, ancient time. At Tomba Dei Giganti, or Giants’ Tomb, you’ll find odd, giant stone slabs that once created tombs for its Bronze Age peoples, and at Elephant Rock, there’s more than meets the eye—it’s Sardinia’s iconic rock shaped like an elephant, but with the hidden secret of ancient tombs.
Rent a boat at Tuerredda Beach, where its sand is reminiscent of that of the Caribbean, see the red deer in their natural home of Piscinas, and visit the ancient site of Nuraghe Santu Antine, the largest nuraghi in Sardinia at the center of the Cabu Abbas plain, dating back to 18th-century BC. See the sweeping views of Sardinia at Gennargentu National Park, where peaks scrape the sky, canyons belly to valleys below, and beaches embrace the circumference of the island. Natural wonders await at Grotto di Ispinigoli, a cave that boasts massive mineral formations, and at L’lsuledda, camp, windsurf, or hit the beach that lines absurdly blue waters of this almost-island in northern Sardinia that faces the Sardinian channel.
Say hello the population of pink flamingos at Spiaggia di Porto Giunco, a thin stretch of beach that feels as if you’re in the Caribbean, not the Mediterranean. And another shock to the system is Molentargius-Saline Regional Park, where the wetlands with fresh and saltwater ponds, flocks of countless bird species, and hundreds of other exotic animal inhabitants will convince you that Sardinia may be one of the most ecological diverse islands in the world.
Swim in the unimaginably blue waters of Ispuligi de nie at Cala Mariolu, a beach tapered off by protective limestone bluffs. Visit Cape Carbonara in southeastern Sardinia, home to the ruins of a fortress on its western side, strips of sandy beaches made ideal for walking parallel to a setting sun, and a landscape dotted with friendly pink flamingos. For a wild ride, travel to the Coghinas, a river that pulses through the northern portion of Sardinia and third longest of the island. Kayak, raft, or hike alongside its majesty as it takes you through winding cut-paths of lush green hills, feeding into Sardinia’s alive countryside, spilling into towns and its small cities.
Touches of Sardinian architecture can be found throughout the island in buildings like the Basilica of San Simplicio Olbia, constructed in the 11th and 12th centuries with a bell tower and apse frescos, or in Bastion Saint Remy, an iconic landmark structure outfitted with a limestone arch greeting its visitors, statuesque pillars, a terrace and promenade that opens itself up to the town’s cultural events.
Other architectural feats are even more complex in their nature like the Shrine of Our Lady of Bonaria, a historic 14th-century shrine dedicated and in resemblance to the Virgin Mary, revered amongst Sardinians. Meanwhile, ancient tombs lay beneath the elegant Cagliari Cathedral, built in the 1200s, and placed above is a wide marble pulpit and impressively opulent interior, a full display of wielded dedication and skill.
