During this sailing cruise we will be following the south eastern coastline of Sardinia, discovering the unspoiled coastline with spectacular beaches and Caribbean-like turquoise sea. The combination of this and being far away from distraction and day to day life, encourages us to find total relaxation on board of the New Horizons.
We start our cruise on Saturday in the bay of Cagliari. Our tender will bring you to your home for the next week, the New Horizons. It is waiting for you in the harbour, to start your sailing cruise along the south eastern Sardinia coast with long dream beaches and a sea that reminds one of the more remote tropical paradises. Photograph the pink flamingos dancing as they rise in flight from the Molentargius Saline Natural Park or romantic basin of Santa Gilla. Dive into the blue waters of the great Poetto beach, and fall in love with this exotic city.
Pearl of the South is Villasimius, with its beautiful Simius beach, with its clear blue water, or Notteri Timi Ama, which on one side has a windswept turquoise sea, and on the other, the lagoon of Notteri. Villasimius is situated on the beautiful south eastern tip of Sardinia with stunning white sandy beaches with electric blue sea. The headland of Capo Carbonara has a harbour and old fortress and there is a double bay with fine white sand on one side and granulated sand on the other. The town has a selection of shops, café bars and restaurants and provides an ideal location for a beach holiday. Nearby is Capo Carbonara, which with the islands of Cavoli and Serpentara, was named a protected marine area.
We sail to the north along the stunning coast, renowned for some of the most beautiful white sandy beaches in Italy and the electric aquamarine coloured sea. The landscape is set off by rolling hills covered with aromatic green Mediterranean vegetation and dramatic granite cliffs, an area which is mainly undeveloped. The small town of Costa Rei is a lovely holiday resort on a stunning long white sandy beach. Immerse yourself in the pure emerald of Cala Sinzias, at the Costa Rei resort, famous for its beautiful beaches and the three squares that sparkle on summer nights. Nearby, Muravera, with its Capo Ferrato, its lovely old town and oranges, the sun-kissed precious fruit of the countryside.
As we lift the anchor, this incredible journey will take us along the eastern coast of Sardinia. Alternating low shores and golden inaccessible cliffs overlooking a turquoise sea, stretches for kilometres. Wild sheep, donkeys and wild boar roam freely in the woods of strawberry trees, holly oaks and oaks in the Supramonte, secretly watched by the royal eagle, which nests on the highest peaks. You might visit Barì dominated by the seventeenth-century tower that splits the beach in two and stroll along the beautiful marinas of Cardedu and Gairo. Take a dip into the calm of Cea beach backed by the original red cliffs, where you can enjoy the priceless view of the bay.
We continue our cruise along the eastern Sardinian coast and do not want to miss the Santa Maria Navarrese coves. Thursday we reach Arbatax, a hamlet of Tortolì, famous for its red rocks, cliffs of red porphyry stretching from the Bellavista promontory into the sea. Worth visiting are the small beaches of Cala Moresca and Porto Frailis.
This cruise is much more than just a vacation. It provides unique experiences that create memories that will last for a lifetime!
You’ll have the whole Friday of the cruise to relax on board in the beautiful bay, or discover this amazing area, as we can bring you ashore with the tender. If you are up to it, in the forest, near the Golgo, be prepared for intense hours of hiking to reach the splendour of Cala Goloritzé, a rocky, dazzling turquoise bay, and other lesser-known coves along the Selvaggio Blu, one of Italy’s most challenging and scenic hiking trails. But again, only if you are up for it of course. Alternatively, you also can discover Baunei, a mountain village behind which opens up one of the most beautiful Mediterranean seas. Here canyons like Gorropu, karst valleys, steep limestone cliffs and Su Sterru, the famous Golgo chasm, a natural bottleneck nearly 300 metres deep, await you.
Saturday, the final day. The guests that stay on board for another week, say goodbye to old friends that will leave today and ahoy to the new friends that arrive for another week of discovery. This next journey will take the New Horizons along the north eastern coastline of Sardinia towards Corsica, discovering the turquoise waters and exploring the beautiful islands.
