We make the most of your time and curiosity, without pressure of a fixed schedule. This cruise is much more than just a vacation. It provides unique experiences that create memories that will last for a lifetime. Join us on board!
During this week, you fill up your senses while following the south western coastline of Sardinia, discovering cultural riches and exploring sun kissed beaches. 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 Port Flavia. 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 Sardinia coast with long dream beaches and a sea that reminds one of the more remote tropical paradises.
As we lift the anchor, this incredible journey will take us to the south. From the beautiful islands of San Pietro and Sant’Antioco, on the opposite coast, beaches with tropical souls alternate with colours and cultural riches that make southern Sardinia a favourite stop for foreign visitors.
Carloforte, the most important town on the island of San Pietro, invites you. The Island of San Pietro is the second largest island of the archipelago sulcitano. Its coasts are high and rocky bathed by a clear sea, while the interior is covered by a thick Mediterranean maquis, the Aleppo pine, the rosemary, the palmetto. The island is of volcanic origin. Carloforte is the only town on the island. It was founded during the reign of Carlo Emanuele III, by a colony of Ligurian fishermen from Tabarka, an island near the coast of Tunisia. The Ligurian origin of its inhabitants can be seen in dialect, traditions, customs and traditions.
There is plenty to in this archipel and its mainland counterpart. Iglesias, Queen of medieval festivals, welcomes you between mines and old churches. Immerse yourself in the animated depths of Cala Fico or treat yourself to a dip at Caletta. Visit the marina of Sant’Antioco, the ancient Sulky, packed with traditional restaurants, and dive into the emerald Cala Grotta. Visit the famous Porto Pino, bordered by Aleppo pines, oaks and junipers and blue waters rippling in long crystal clear waves.
Next on the horizon are a succession of beaches of breathtaking beauty from Capo Teulada to the east. We don’t want to miss Tuerredda, a turquoise and blue cove in front of which stands a small island full of lush Mediterranean brush. You can dive into the sea of Cala Cipolla, explore its headlands and take a photo at the lighthouse at Capo Spartivento. Enjoy the turquoise waves of Baia Chia, a summer paradise of sun.
Pula, with its lively squares and artistic heritage of the Nora archaeological site, integrated in a naturalistic dream, will make your cruise an opportunity to reflect on past civilizations. The beach of Santa Margherita at Pula charms you with its white beach and its romantic lagoon, all framed by high mountains.
In the middle of the Golfo degli Angeli is Cagliari, where we drop anchor on Thursday. It is the island’s capital, a city of artistic beauty running along the streets of the historic districts. Cagliari is good food, art galleries, shopping and nature. Stroll along Via Roma overlooking the harbour and enjoy a drink at sunset from the Bastione of Saint Rémy. 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.
You’ll have the whole Friday of the cruise to relax on board in the beautiful bay, or discover Cagliari as we can bring you ashore with the tender.
This cruise is much more than just a vacation. It provides unique experiences that create memories that will last for a lifetime!
Cagliari rises in a helter-skelter of golden-hued palazzi, domes and facades up to the rocky centrepiece, Il Castello. Although Tunisia is closer than Rome, Cagliari is the most Italian of Sardinia’s cities. Vespas buzz down tree-fringed boulevards and locals hang out at busy cafes tucked under arcades in the seafront Marina district. Like many Italian cities, Cagliari wears its history on its sleeve and everywhere you go you come across traces of its rich past: ancient Roman ruins, museums filled with prehistoric artifacts, centuries-old churches and elegant palazzi.
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.
