The Sardinia Boat Vacation Guide

A Sardinia boat vacation is one of the best holiday options – let me explain why and recommend how to go about making this type of holiday a reality.

Sardinia by Boat

A Sardinia Boat Vacation was all new to us – we discovered it by accident.

We normally loved our old favorite, the Hotel Bue MarinoI thought of booking at the Bue Marino again, or looking for a great place to rent. However, we'd left it a bit late and the Bue Marino was full.

A friend of mine then suggested that I hire a yacht.

I expected it to be very expensive, it wasn't and the result was a magnificent holiday. Something we'll never forget.

Family vacations in Sardinia don’t get better than this. We’d moor off undiscovered coves perfect for kids.

They could row the dingy ashore and swim and snorkel in safe calm water – spending hours playing on the beaches or trying to catch the fish in the warm turquoise sea.

Sardinia is the most beautiful of all Mediterranean islands and very few other places can compare.

The coastline is spectacular with stunning beaches and quiet little bays, most of which can be reached only by sea.

The weather forecast in Sardinia is always perfect - with an average of 300 days of sunshine and with warm winds off Africa this is a great sailing spot.

To learn more about Sardinia perhaps read a few of the books we recommend in our Sardinian book guide. Sardinia is the ideal place to sail either alone or with a  crew, skippered or bareboat.

Most Sardinian marinas offer full resort facilities, with everything a yachtie could wish for; while the Smeralda and Porto Cervo Yacht Clubs also offer lots of millionaire sports stars, supermodels and luxury yachts - I tend to avoid them preferring  the many less glitzy marinas.
