Sailing in Sardinia - La Maddalena


La Maddalena archipelago lies just off the coast of northern Sardinia. Your boating adventure must include a day of island hopping in this gorgeous, crystal-clear paradise, with occasional stops to enjoy a sunbathe in the sandy coves. Don’t miss the Budelli island and one of the many idiosyncrasies of Sardinia - the vivid pink sand beach of Spiaggia Rosa! Mostly wild and uninhabited, these beaches are kept protected, so keep an eye out for the red buoys when you drop your anchor.

Yacht Charter in Sardinia - Porto Cervo


Sailing along the coast of northern Sardinia is an amazing nautical experience: from the wild La Maddalena islands to Porto Cervo; one of Europe’s most expensive piece of real-estate. Dock your Sailo yacht charter in Sardinia at Marina de Porto Cervo and explore this very wealthy, yet charmingly little town. Have coffee at a chic coastal bar, or go shopping at the high-end boutiques. From the many things to do by boat in Sardinia, this one is for sure an exclusive experience to remember.

Shop souvenirs in Alghero, Italy


Our team of boating enthusiasts makes a point from finding the best place to shop for souvenirs from your boating trips. When sailing in Sardinia we recommend the medieval town of Alghero. Drop anchor in the old harbor and experience the vibrant nightlife of this Catalan city. Alghero is also the place where you’ll find one of the most prized red coral in the Mediterranean sea.

Yacht Charter in Sardinia - Asinara


Have you ever seen an Albino donkey? Not if you haven’t been to Asinara island! This small rocky island is a wildlife and marine preserve, so make sure you register for an organized tour. Besides the oddity of the Albino donkeys, the island’s landmark is a former maximum security prison, which you can now visit and have a former prisoner as tour guide. Hop off your Sailo yacht charter in Sardinia in Stintino and have your camera ready to capture your adventure on Asinara.

Sailing in Sardinia - Fishing for Tuna


If a fresh tuna steak in Porto Cervo, or lobster pasta on Tavolara island is not your thing, then you certainly can’t turn down the opportunity to catch your own dinner on one of the tuna fishing charters in Sardinia. Bluefin tuna migrates along the northern coast of Sardinia every August. Choose a tuna fishing yacht charter in Sardinia and enjoy a day on the water, chasing what can become the culinary highlight of your Italian summer holiday.
