Suggested itinerary: Tavolara - Caprera island - Corsica - Maddalena archipelago
Day 1 Tavolara Have a pleasant cruise reaching the Tavolara island. Nearby you can find also islets of Molara and Molarotto, which belong to the Tavolara Marine Protected Area - Punta Coda Cavallo, a paradise for scuba divers. You can put at anchor in the bay of Spalmatore (excellent backdrops for anchoring), right in front of a beautiful beach, you can swim and enjoy a fantastic view. If you are lucky, you can get a a glimpse of passing dolphins. In the evening you can eat in a nice local restaurant.
Day 2 Tavolara - Caprera The Island of Caprera is part of the Maddalena Archipelago, connected to La Maddalena Island with a bridge. It is a Natural Reserve. All around pink granite rocks paint a wonderful landscape. Cala Coticcio is on the eastern side of the island, small and narrow like a fjord. Southeast is Cala Brigantina, a narrow bay protected by the rocks. South you must see Punta Rossa, the beaches of Cala Portese, Porto Palma and l’isoletta del Porco. In the northen area there are wonderful (unaccessable by land) beaches like Cala Napoletana, Cala Serena and Cala Caprese. A must see, the House of Garibaldi, today a museum.
Day 3 Caprera - Bonifacio Corsica, a beautiful French island that perfectly combines with yachting in Northern Sardinia. Cruise to Bonifacio (Corsica), admire the charm of its narrow streets leading to the Citadel. Fascinating entry to the harbour, perched on limestone cliffs above the Mediterranean, the ancient fortress is one of Corsica’s most captivating places. Remember you will be in France and you can find the “baguettes” and the “crêpes” and all teh other delicacies. Corsica's landscape and white-sand beaches have the distinction in the Mediterranean of being mostly unspoilt by development.
Day 4 Bonifacio - Island Budelli Budelli is part of the Maddalena Archipelago, famous for the legendary “Spiaggia Rosa” (“Pink Beach”). Its clear turquoise waters, vegetation, purple rocks and a unique rose-coloured beach makes it the pearl of the La Maddalena archipelago, scattered between Sardinia and Corsica. Bright pink, orange and salmon-tinted bits of crushed coral, crystals, fossils and dead marine creatures such as microscopic prawns’ skeletons cover the beach, giving the shore a sparkling strawberry hue similar to that of the sun when it starts to set.
Day 5 Island Spargi - Razzoli - Santa Maria Spargi island, uninhabited because of its granitic and rugged nature, with few coves and countless sandy bays. Among them Cala Corsara, one of the most beautiful, from there you can cruise along the eastern coast, finding many small bays (Cala Soraja, Cala Granara, Cala Conneri, Cala Canniccio, Cala Petranera) till Cala Grano, where you can get ashore. Through a small street you can reach the fortification of Punta Zanotto. One mile North, the Washington Reef, a unforgettable place for diving.
Day 6 La Maddalena (Cala Gavetta) - Pevero bay La Maddalena lies in famously shimmering waters, clear and with a range of blue and turquoise. There are many fine sand beaches, some of them romantically isolated. Cala Gavetta, the port town where you can find all kinds of shops, restaurants and pizzerias. An enchanted place, inside an inlet that, since ancient times has welcomed the sailors. Pevero ia a beautiful bay, just behind the marina of Porto Cervo. The landscape is a fable, two beautiful sandy beaches, on the hill the famous Costa Smeralda’s villas with their green gardens.

Sardinian cuisine comes from the poor sheepherders whose recipes focus on meat cookery and preserving foods of all kinds. Cheeses hold special sway in Sardinia, being the island’s most exported food product. Pecorino sardo, Fiore sardo, ricotta, caprino, pecorino romano, and the famous casu marzu are all made within the region. Also should be mentioned the bread “carasau”, delicious wafers of thin light bread. The worldwide famous “maialetto” or roasted piglet is Sardinian cuisine’s strength and pride. A wide variety of other herbs flourish on Sardinia as well, with the surprisingly menthol twang of aromatic yet bitter myrtle (berries, flowers, leaves and wood) flavoring many local dishes. Whether savory, sweet, used for wood smoking or instilled into digestive liqueurs, myrtle is a mainstay of the Sardinian palate. The strong Sardinian wines stand up to the strong flavors of the food. Look for Vernaccia, Cannonau, Malvasia, and Girò. Ask your chef to prepare you a typical Sardinian meal onboard your Sardinia yacht charter, from local ingredients!
