Sardinia by catamaran is an unforgettable experience. Not only does it have a sea that’s envied the world over, but it also boasts natural, historic and gastronomic heritage that makes it a truly one-of-a-kind destination. There are plenty of towns and cities to visit along the coast: the capital, Cagliari with many restaurants, a great bar scene and lots of boutiques to explore. Don’t miss the medieval old town: walk up to the castle and revel in the sweeping views over the bay. Olbia is where ferries arrive from the mainland, and it has the second-largest airport after Cagliari. It’s worth stopping off here to see the old town and visit the Basilica di San Simplicio; but above all, Olbia is the departure point for the main destinations in northern Sardinia: The Costa Smeralda, the Maddalena archipelago, and the spectacular coast as far as San Teodoro, with the islands of Tavolara and Molara. Alghero is an ancient city, and its medieval city walls are still intact. It’s surrounded by fantastic beaches and small anchorages. Then there are the villages like Bosa, with its colourful houses and its castle; Castelsardo, built on a steep cliff overhanging the sea; and the little harbour at Carloforte, on the island of San Pietro in the far south-western part of Sardinia
Renting a catamaran on the north coast of Sardinia allows you to cruise around the beautiful islands surrounding it: some of the best-known are in the Maddalena archipelago, with the island of the same name, along with Caprera, Spargi and Razzoli. You can sail through the Strait of Bonifacio, Isola Piatta, Lavezzi and Cavallo. Then just below Olbia, Tavolara and Molara. By chartering a catamaran in southern Sardinia, departing from Carloforte for example, you can visit Sant'Antioco and San Pietro, and the protected island of Mal di Ventre as you return back up the west coast. Lastly, with a catamaran charter from Alghero or Stintino around the north-west coast, off the impressive Spiaggia della Pelosa, you can sail to the wild, rocky Isola dell’Asinara.
A one-week catamaran charter lets us visit some of the most beautiful protected nature parks and marine reserves: the Maddalena Archipelago National Park, the Asinara National Park and, if you like hiking, you can moor at Santa Maria Navarrese and go inland to explore the Orosei and Gennargentu National Park.
Sardinia has no shortage of fascinating archaeological parks: those closest to the coast, which can be visited while on a catamaran cruise in Sardinia, are Tharros and Nora. Tharros stands on a picturesque peninsular close to Oristano, and has the ruins of an ancient Phoenician-Roman city. Nora is near Pula, between Carloforte and Cagliari, and has the remains of a large city, also conquered by the Romans.
