Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean and an idyllic yacht charter destination. It is a beautiful island full of unspoilt treasures. Bays and coves with transparent waters alternate along the coast. But Sardinia’s appeal is not limited to its gorgeous turquoise waters and powdery white sandy beaches: spectacular gorges, charming seaside resorts, dramatic mountains… they all make the island a paradise for tourists, hikers, scuba divers and thrill seekers. Last but not least, Sardinia is home to a refined gastronomy accompanied by some of the world's most sought-after wines. The beautiful rugged scenery makes it the perfect destination for a Mediterranean yacht charter. Located on Sardinia's northern coasts, is the very popular destination of Costa Smeralda (Emerald Coast). With many luxurious hotels and restaurants, designer boutiques and a number of exclusive events held throughout the summer, it is certainly a must-stop during your yacht charter in Sardinia. Corsica is just a very short cruise away and can be combined with a yacht charter in Sardinia.
CRUISE! DISCOVER, TASTE, VISIT & ENJOY
At Talamare, we believe that experience can turn a special yacht charter into an extra special one. Take a look at the few examples below and contact our charter planners for details and recommendations.
Spend the night in a lighthouse
The red lighthouse of Cape Spartivento stands at the southern tip of Sardinia. This property, which belongs to the Italian Navy, has been transformed into an exclusive hotel. The listed monument houses six design and luxurious rooms, a swimming pool overflowing on the sea, a gastronomic restaurant only accessible to the hotel guests... The lighthouse offers a great one-on-one experience with nature, especially when the sea is raging under a storm.
The mysterious towers of Sardinia
A number of ancient megalithic stone structures are scattered throughout Sardinia. Built by the Nuragic civilization between 1900 and 730 BC, they are known as nuraghes. These structures remain a great mystery for all historians and researchers. Su Nuraxi Di Barumini is the most impressive construction.

Considered as one of the "most beautiful villages in Italy", Bosa is an enchanting city situated on the west coast, south of Alghero.
