The Best Beaches in Sardinia: Sailing Along The Coast

The Emerald Coast starting from Portisco is the perfect base for a yacht charter holiday spent sailing in northeastern Sardinia.  Don’t miss these incredible beaches as you set sail from your base in Portisco:

Spiaggia La Celvia

Allure, glamour and luxury – Spiaggia La Celvia has it all. La Celvia is one of the biggest and most beautiful beaches in Sardinia.


  • a magnet for celebrities and superyachts
  • not far from the beach, you can find several fine dining options and chic bars – the perfect places to relax after a day spent lounging in the sun
  • the translucent waters look even more stunning at La Celvia because of the multi-colored shells that make up the beach’s unique sand.

Pevero Beach

Just down the coast from Porto Cervo you’ll find Pevero Beach – or Piccolo and Grande Pevero to be exact.


  • soft, powdery white sand, Piccolo and Grande Pevero Beaches should not be missed on your boat trip along the coast
  • in the summer, you’ll find several yachts on the calm, vibrant blue and turquoise waters that surround the crescent bays.

Spiaggia del Principe

La Maddalena is a true sailor’s paradise.

Just north of the main island, you can enjoy island hopping in La Maddalena Archipelago.


  • here you will also find some of the most beautiful beaches in Sardinia
  • the archipelago is made up of over 60 islands and islets and boasts around 300 unspoiled beaches
  • with so many beautiful islands to explore, it will be hard not to find a hidden bay or tranquil cove to stop for a swim
  • keep in mind that you will need a permit to sail in the protected marine park and that overnight anchorage is not possible in most areas.
  • popular beach: Cala dello Spalmatore
  • secluded beach: Cala Lunga on the island of Razzoli. Reachable only by boat, Cala Lunga is an enchanting cove where you will find yourself surrounded by intriguing granite rock formations.

Spiaggia Rena Bianca

After a relaxing stop in La Maddalena Archipelago, you can continue sailing north-west to Santa Teresa Gallura. The blue flag beach of Rene Bianca is one of the most loved beaches on the Italian island.


  • offering shelter from the wind, this calm beach makes a great place to stop while sailing in northern Sardinia
  • on clear summer days, you can even get a glimpse of the white cliffs that define Bonifacio on the French island of Corsica from your yacht
  • after relaxing in the sun on your yacht’s deck, grab your snorkeling gear and jump into the transparent waters of Rena Bianca

Capo Coda Cavallo

Want to venture further? Before returning to your charter in Portisco, you might be tempted to continue south towards San Teodoro to reach Capo Coda Cavallo. Located between the mountains on Sardinia’s northeastern coast, Capo Cado Cavallo beach is best accessed by boat.


  • the crystal clear waters are shallow and warm, making it an ideal beach for children
  • the bay provides a good anchorage as it is well sheltered from winds. It offers fantastic views of the nearby island Molara and the surrounding mountains

Spaggia Romazzino

If luxury is your thing, then Spiaggia Romazzino may be just what you’re looking for. Located directly in front of the ever popular and posh Romazzino hotel, the beach almost feels like an extension of the opulence that pervades the hotel (or maybe it’s the other way around!). In addition, people come here for the sparkling granite rocks, but stay for the sparkling blue water.

Spiaggia Capriccioli

To those who seek, Spiaggia Capriccioli is complete with small coves, iridescent multicolored granite, and the standard variated flora. The olive trees and junipers are at the heart of this island nation. Therefore, if you’re coming here by boat, then you’re in luck: a small wooden pier, the islet of Mortorio, and other coves are all ideally traveled by boat.
