23 Set Southern Sardinia: from Chia to Carloforte on a sailboat
Holiday code: CAG19
Go beyond the usual routes of Sardinia and discover the wildest side of the island: come on board of our sailboat headed to Chia, Carloforte, Sant’Antioco, Porto Pino and Pula.
Southern Sardinia is less crowded than its northern part. Fewer tourists mean a wilder and untouched territory. Our sailboat will let you relax and enjoy genuine places and people, surrounded by beaches, coves, and wind. We will sail to Cagliari, Pula, Chia, and Sant’Antioco: this is the perfect opportunity to discover a sailboat, both for amateurs and experts. The South will steal your heart and make you feel free.
MONDAY: we embark in Cagliari to start our sailing tour. When the group has arrived, we will sort out the necessities for the galley. In the early afternoon, we sail to Nora’s beach in Capo di Pula. Our beautiful first stop will welcome us with its beautiful coves, studded by ancient guard towers in the foreground. After our first dip, we have an aperitivo and dinner. With some beers and a chat during the sunset, we are ready to feel on holiday.
TUESDAY: After a short swim and a light breakfast, we sail towards Chia. One of the most beautiful beaches of Sardinia, its transparent waters are perfect for some snorkeling. We can take a walk by the beach and check out its many kiosks. Later on, we sail to Teulada’s gulf and its many protected bays for another swim. We will spend the night in the harbor.
WEDNESDAY: We are ready for San Pietro’s island, towards Carloforte. Before entering the port, we stop by a bay to refresh ourselves. For those who wish, the skipper can give you some sailing lessons (you should catch this opportunity!). We arrive in the port by late afternoon, and we can explore the typical shops and have dinner with some fish. We sleep in the harbor.
THURSDAY: After some breakfast, we are ready to sail to Porto Pino’s beach and its dunes: a boundless desert of soft and thin sand, formed by the wind in Sant’Antioco island. The Mistral, the dominant wind of this sea, will guide us to Palmas’ Gulf. After anchoring, we can reach the beach by swimming or with our tender for a cocktail by the sea. At night, we can have a midnight dip in these transparent and calm waters.
FRIDAY: Following breakfast and a dip, we sail to Capo Teulada, the southern-most point of Sardinia. We stop here, precisely in Galera’s cove for a swim in its blue waters. We then proceed to Capo Malfatano to visit the beautiful Tuaredda beach, swimming in its calm and protected waters. There’s also a nice little wooden restaurant/bar where we can take a break.
SATURDAY: We are starting to get more and more comfortable with our sailboat, as we maneuver it and hoist the sails. We head back to Cagliari’s gulf, directed to Poetto, the famous local beach. The party carries on as we listen to the music coming from the various stalls of the beach. A fun night in company awaits us.
SUNDAY: After a nice coffee and a dip, we are ready to disembark. We are at the end of this beautiful holiday. Sadly, it’s time to say goodbye, see you soon!
