in 2020, we've been to Sardinia, in all of the wonderful places below, sailing through these gorgeous waters! Want to take a sneak peek at where we've been? 

ABOUT Sardinia

Sardinia is the second-largest island in the Mediterranean and the most precious jewel on the beautiful Costa Smeralda. Its beaches of white sand and crystal blue water are among the most beautiful in Europe and the world.


One of the most traditional and disputed destinations for charters on the planet - mainly by luxurious superyachts - the Maddalena Islands, northeast of Sardinia and close to the French territory of Corsica, unveils unique natural wonders, and offer a luxurious structure with refined gastronomy, haute couture, and an exclusive atmosphere, a catwalk  for the European high society during the summer.


In Sardinia, we use the city of Olbia as operational base. From here we can operate a variety of routes, through the Maddalena Islands, crossing up to Corsica, or even towards northeast of the island, where we can escape the hustle and bustle to enjoy this more peaceful, but not less charming region. Olbia airport provides easy access from all major cities in Europe.


Famous for its indefectible landform, with the table-shaped peak, responsible for the island name. The trail (medium level) to the top allows an unforgettable 360º view of the Maddalenas Archipelago.


On the way down, it is worth going through the small town of Spalmatore di Terra for a well-deserved drink. The island is also famous for its diving spots, among the best in the region.
