Sail the exclusive Costa Smeralda
Sardinia’s strong summer winds and narrow tidal range make it a favourite destination for sailors. Here you’ll find numerous cup competitions and regatta, attracted to the island’s famous Costa Smeralda by the strong mistrals that stir the surface of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Located in the middle of Sardinia’s exclusive Costa Smeralda, Cannigione is a small and lovely resort town offering easy access to many fabulous beaches and the popular Maddalena Archipelago.
The luxury resorts, golf courses and clean, white beaches of the Costa Smeralda attract the jet-set crowd, and you can spot many famous faces in Cannigione and beyond. If you tire of rubbing shoulders with millionaires and celebrities, then Cannigione is the perfect jumping off point from which to explore Sardinia, the Maddalena Archipelago and Corsica beyond. Sardinia’s craggy coastline provides dozens of natural inlets, secluded beaches and private anchorages where you can forget your troubles, drop anchor for the day and swim the warm, inviting waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Sardinia is globally renowned for its local cuisine and there are many excellent restaurants dotted along the coast, including several with prestigious Michelin stars. As you’d expect Sardinian cuisine is rich in seafood such as langoustines, rock lobster and tuna, as well as wild boar, suckling pig, cheeses and the region’s distinct saffron-infused pasta. Spoil yourself on an indulgent sailing holiday along the glamorous Costa Smerelda.
