Mediterranean Sardinia

itineraire7 days from Cannigione

From Cannigione to Palau

Cross the Gulf of Arzachena and pass through the channel between Santo Stefano and Capo d‘Orso. Continue to Caprera taking the nice way of Porto Palma and Cala degli Inglesi. Then sail north to drop your anchor in the port of Palau.

From Palau to Porto Vecchio

Today the longest sailing of the trip is expecting you, that's why an early departure is strongly advised. Sail north between Maddalena and Spargi arriving south of the islands Budelli and Santa Maria where you will be able to rest, swim and explore the area, Cecca di Morto. Otherwise go to the islet of Corcelli. Another 24 miles separates you from Porto Vecchio, so keep in mind you have another 4-5 hours of sailing time. You should arrive while it's still day light if you are not an accomplished sailor. The historic town, located high above the port, worths the trip. It is very characteristic and provides many excellent restaurants.

From Porto Vecchio to Golfio di Rondinara

On the south of Porto Vecchio discover the amazing Golfo di Rondinara, a natural shelter perfect for a night anchorage. However, in case of easterly winds, protective anchorage is recommended in the north of the Golfo between the shore and rock.

From Golfo di Rondinara to Bonifacio

Leave the Golfo di Sant‘Amanza to anchor at Cala Lazarina in Lavezzi. Be careful as it is not that easy to enter, that's why charts must be well considered. Lavezzi is one of the most charming islands in the zone, and it is advised to stay a night here in case of good weather. Otherwise Bonifacio can be reached in an hour. Ashore, visit the ancient city and enjoy the breath-taking views all over Bonifacio and Sardinia.

From Bonifacio to La Maddalena

Leave Bonifacio to reach Isola Piana. The sand uniting Isola Piana and Corsica does not permit a sailing passage, but it is a wonderful natural swimming zone with crystal clear water. Then go to the left of the island and sail back into the Maddalena archipelago. Enter the port of Cala Gavetta and visit the characteristic, charming town. Otherwise, spend the night at Cala Francese.

From La Maddalena to Caprera

Sail north-east through La Maddalena and the islets of Barrettinelli, arriving for a swim in the ravishing spots of Cala Spalmatore or Cala Coticcio. Anchor for the night in Cala Portese on the south-east of Caprera.

From Caprera to Cannigione

Enter the exiguous passage between Isola Rossa (Caprera) and Isola della Pecora. Depending the weather conditions, stop at Porto Palma in Caprera or Golfo of Saline before going back to the base of Cannigione.
