Cagliari: Get to know beautiful Sardinia


The vibrant and fun Cagliari is the capital of the island of Sardinia. Since the city is relatively out of tourist routes and can be reached from the sea, it is a great alternative stop of a luxury yacht cruise of the island. Its exotic landscape of small houses and golden buildings has always attracted visitors.


The streets are a testament to the city’s history: walk through the roman ruins, and the churches of the picturesque old town, with its museums and art galleries filled with romantic and almost surreal atmospheres. All you need is the will to save some time of your sailing tour of Sardinia to discover Cagliari.

The city’s promenade bursts with clubs and bars that animate a lively social life. Its many attractions suit the expectations of different typologies of visitors, even those who love to spend hours admiring the view. Watching the sunset from the castle transforms Cagliari into an old painting. For a memorable gastronomic experience head to Il Corsaro restaurant, where top-quality meals are prepared exclusively with biological products.

Cagliari boasts some of Sardinia’s most famous beaches. Poetto dominates the cape of Sella del Diavolo; Capo Malfatano and Giunco are fully-equipped romantic viewpoints. Yachters usually prefer anchoring at Cale di Tueredda (and swim to the nearby islet), Pira, with its white sandy beach, and Cala Cipolla. If you plan on spending some time in Cagliari on your luxury yacht charter, make sure to stop at Mari Pintau (near Quartu Sant’Elena) and Su Giudeu (near Torre della Chia).

Many of the beaches in the surroundings of Cagliari are naturalistic paradises filled with secluded coves: a heaven for divers and surfers. The seabed is a renowned scuba-diving attraction. Since this coastal area is a marine reserve, tourists can go on excursions of the many relics disseminated across the wild local flora.
