Luxury yacht charter in Sardinia

1 July 2016By Sophia Heath

The second-largest island in the Mediterranean, Sardinia is also one of the most beautiful and is perfect to explore on a luxury yacht charter. Chartering a superyacht in Sardinia will allow you discover romantic beaches, secluded anchorages and some of the best rustic restaurants in the Mediterranean.

From the city of Cagliari in the south to old coastal towns such as Alghero in the north, there is a rich mixture of architecture and culture to be discovered during a luxury yacht charter in Sardinia. The island’s stone tepee-like structures, the Nuraghe, are among the oldest constructions known to man; while the Sardinian language, Sardo, is still spoken along with Italian and several other local dialects.

In the northeast of the island lies the famous Costa Smeralda, beloved of superyacht owners and charterers alike. Originally bought by the Aga Khan 50 years ago, the area is an eclectic mix of colourful fishing villages, beautiful villas and high class boutiques. One of the best party destinations in the Mediterranean, Porto Cervo, is at the heart of the Costa Smeralda and with its marina nestling in a beautiful, sheltered harbour it is a must visit destination for any luxury yacht charter in Sardinia. Porto Cervo also hosts the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta every June.

There is no shortage of activities to be enjoyed if you choose to charter a superyacht in Sardinia. Those who love to snorkel should visit Archipelago della Maddalena, the first national park in Sardinia, or for golf aficionados, there is Il Pevero, one of Europe’s most spectacular courses.

To enhance your superyacht charter further Sardinia also has a fabulous climate. June and August bring dry hot days while most rain falls from October to February creating the lush green landscape.

With a beautiful coastline, endless activities and perfect weather the only other factor you need for a perfect luxury yacht charter in Sardinia is the right superyacht. If you are looking to fit in in glamorous Porto Cervo then you will want to select one of the best luxury yachts for charter in the West Mediterranean or perhaps choose a yacht that celebrities love to charter. Alternatively if you are looking for a more low key charter experience then pick a family friendly yacht and enjoy the secluded anchorages with your nearest and dearest.
