Sailing holiday in northern Sardinia

A sailing holiday in Sardinia, cruising the north coast, can only include an itinerary that winds between Palau and Alghero. In this maritime area, it is possible to go up the famous Strait of Bonifacio and reach the island of Asinara, to be admired in all its beauty both from the sea and from the land. There are several possible docks in this area: just to name a few, the Port of Bonifacio, Castelsardo and Stintino, which is renowned for its characteristic historic centre and the crystal clear waters of the Pelosa beach.

What better excuse to show off the garments of the new Sea of Japan Capsule Collection?

For him, the essential and comfortable A105 t-shirt, the E173 boxers in light nylon and the E62 sweatshirt with hood and central pocket form the perfect combination for a day of exploration and style.

 

Let's now look at the most popular points of interest in the north, unmissable for those who opt for a tour of Sardinia by sailing boat.

 

Capo Caccia

 

Capo Caccia is an enchanting limestone promontory, much appreciated for the particular variety of flora and fauna. Numerous species of birds are visible from the sea, looking towards the promontory: Bonelli's eagle, the herring gull and the peregrine falcon are just some of these. The seabed is very clear, through the ripples of the water you can admire beautiful corals and various species of fish. For a sailing trip in Sardinia, which includes the exploration of the wild landscapes of Capo Caccia, our suggestion is to opt for Bermuda shorts and t-shirts for him, as well as for her: the ideal outfit consists of shorts and a shirt. Explore our catalogue, in addition to the continuative garments we suggest you discover the new Spring / Summer 2021 collection for men, women and children, with essential and technical clothing for the most sporty days and those designed for a more casual everyday life.

 

Neptune's Caves

 

Caves of indescribable beauty stand out underwater, among the spectacular light games created by the waves. A treasure of the Mediterranean Sea, to be admired and explored: we are talking about the extraordinary Neptune's Caves in Alghero. Among the stages of your sailing holiday in Northern Sardinia, you cannot miss these stone wonders, carved out over the centuries by water and wind.

To visit this suggestive place, our advice is to wear comfortable clothing suitable for long walks and stairways: Bermuda shorts and t-shirts for him, shorts and a t-shirt for her. For the cooler days remember to bring with you a light and dynamic sweatshirt, just like the E62 with hood lined in stretch jersey.

 

Alghero

 

A charming tourist destination in the province of Sassari, Alghero exudes a strong Aragonese and Catalan influence, due to the historical domination of the town. The seabed of the bay of the same name (also known as Rada di Alghero) is very famous for the presence, in large quantities, of red coral in its finest variety. Alghero also offers many relaxing walks to discover churches, the ancient ruins of walls and towers, the Nuragic complex of Palmavera, as well as a fantastic promenade that certainly cannot exclude a stop in the characteristic civic square. For this reason, our advice is to choose comfortable clothing, suitable for relaxing but rather prolonged walks, all in a casual style: men's and women's polo shirts are ideal, combined with Bermuda shorts and women's shorts. Exploring the Leisure line of the Spring / Summer 2021 collection you will find items with a nautical connotation but designed for everyday use.

 

 

Sardinia tour on a sailing boat, West coast

 

The exploration of the west coast of Sardinia by sailing boat is concentrated between Alghero and Carloforte. The landscape is wild and breathtaking and lends itself less to sailing than the area of the Strait of Bonifacio, but there is certainly no shortage of fascinating ports.

The perfect compromise between comfort and style remains vital also in this stage: fascinating villages to discover, spectacular beaches to indulge in relaxation and ruins to explore await us. The Bandiere capsule seems perfect for the nautical routines of this stretch; a collection featuring the flag of New Zealand, home of America’s Cup 2021 and stage of numerous Ocean Races. The graphic element recurs on the garments of the collection, together with the transposition into letters of the international nautical code. Fresh and light garments like the G555 full-zip cotton sweatshirt, to always have with you when the breeze becomes more insistent, or like the G88 polo shirt with a classic cut, but with strategic organic cotton jersey stretch processing.

 

Here are the main points of interest to foresee during a sailing tour in western Sardinia.

 

Bosa

 

Observing, first from the coast then directly from the mainland, the suggestive colourful houses of the village of Bosa it is easy to get lost while chasing a perfume or watching the waves of the crystal clear sea break on the coast. The charming village is a beauty to be discovered, with even prehistoric evidence, as proved by some findings of funeral caves. A walk to discover the historic centre must not be missed, starting from the enchanting castle: the cobblestone alleys and ancient arcades are the protagonists, together with the more modern Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, with trendy bars, restaurants and shops. A stop in the hamlet of Bosa Marina is a must, to enjoy the famous and unspoiled sandy beach, famous for its crystal clear waters. To visit this extraordinary jewel, our advice is casual clothing: men's and women's trousers combined with a shirt for him and her. In the Spring / Summer 2021 collection, among the offer of the City line, you will find the right outfit, with ideal garments for spring days or cooler evenings, in addition to products dedicated to the beach.

 

 

Tharros

 

Do not miss the archaeological site of Tharros, dating back to the time of the Phoenicians, during an itinerary of excursions on a sailing boat in Sardinia, along the west coast. It is not well known the period of abandonment of this centre by the inhabitants (probably around 1070 BC), who, due to pirate attacks, chose to move towards the interior of the island, founding Oristano. During the visit, it is possible to admire the Tofet, a sanctuary from the Roman era, used for human sacrifices, and the Castellum Acquaes. The ideal outfit can be both sporty and casual: a comfortable dress for her and shorts and polo shirts for him. For example, discover the G78 polo shirt with organic cotton jersey stretch processing.

 

 

Sailboat excursions in South Sardinia

 

The most surprising bays of the island can be discovered thanks to a sailing holiday in Sardinia along the south coast. From Carloforte to Villasimius, it is possible to let yourself be influenced by amazing colours, in an exciting maritime journey.

In the name of the protected natural wonders of this area of Sardinia, we want to recommend for this stage a collection of organic cotton t-shirts, created to promote marine environmental sustainability. The theme also emerges from the graphics, inspired by the protection of the oceans, such as that of the E108 men's t-shirt, with “Deep Respect” print on the chest.

 

 Here are two pearls of this extraordinary naturalistic context in southern Sardinia.

 

Archaeological Park of Nora

 

Another Phoenician outpost, in addition to the aforementioned site of Tharros, is the archaeological park of Nora, whose ruins are partly located underwater: for snorkelling enthusiasts, it is possible to dive and admire them from an underwater perspective. Among the most interesting monuments to be admired within the site, we mention the Piazza del Foro, with its precious pavement and the Temple of Tanit, where there is a stone pyramid. Among the surprises that can't be missed in the proximity, we point out the magical Lagoon of Nora, a fascinating place where you can get lost in immense landscapes inhabited by particular fauna species. Also, in this case, the recommended clothing is both sporty and casual: a comfortable dress for her and shorts and polo shirts for him. From the capsule dedicated to sustainability, however, we offer the G101 t-shirt, with a sailing-themed 3D print on the chest.

 

Villasimius

 

What characterizes the territory of Villasimius is the dense presence of coastal watchtowers from the period of Spanish domination; Villasimius is also well known for its characteristic ceramic shops and workshops in the historic centre. Unmissable, to be explored in the Villasimius area on the occasion of a sailing holiday in Sardinia, is the Marine Protected Area of Capo Carbonara. You can visit the town by showing off men's polo shirts and women's polo shirts, paired with Bermuda shorts and casual women's shorts, also ideal for a stop for lunch at one of the restaurants in the centre; you will be ready to leave again for Capo Carbonara in comfort.

 

 

Sardinia tour by sailing boat, East coast

 

Going up the island from the south will allow us to admire some of the most spectacular scenery in the Mediterranean area, a route full of wonders, from Villasimius to Palau.

The ideal clothing for this section certainly includes the men's and women's sportswear line, with all the technicality of the materials used: in particular Polartec Delta and ECOTEC®, some of the yarns used, are produced according to high-quality standards, always about concerning sustainability.

 

Here are some of the essential steps for a sailing tour of Sardinia along the east coast.

 

Gulf of Orosei

 

Inside the gulf of the same name, the town of Orosei is positioned on a hill and is therefore clearly visible even from the sea. This little wonder hides its essence in its oldest part, the one that leaves the sea behind to go up to ancient shops and characteristic alleys: this is where you can taste its soul.

The real advantage of exploring this gulf on a sailing boat is the presence of spectacular beaches accessible only from the sea: cliffs overlooking the sea, a real unforgettable natural oasis. Among the most popular are Cala Goloritzè, Cala Luna and Cala Mariolu, a spectacle for those who love nature.

In addition to casual clothing for visiting the town, our suggestion is to always have a swimsuit with you: the wonder of the beaches is always around the corner. From the Bandiere capsule, we offer the G167 swim trunks, boxer shorts with ultralight elastic drawstring that ensure quick drying.

 

Tavolara

 

Boundless panoramas: sea, mountains and wild nature in harmony give life to a painting of extraordinary beauty. This is the island of Tavolara, another must for sailing trips in Sardinia during a holiday. It is good to keep in mind that the island of Tavolara is "divided" into two areas, one of which is military (the north coast). In fact, at Punta Timone there is a NATO base for long-range terrestrial telecommunications: here the landing ban is active. The tourist area is located to the south, in Porto San Paolo, characterized by a tongue of sand and pink rocks, which takes the name of Spalmatore di Terra.

Bermuda shorts and t-shirts for him, shorts and t-shirts for her: comfort is essential to explore this pristine landscape.

Finally, for those who take the passion for performance on vacation, we suggest exploring our technical lines: the Skiff collections for men and women are perfect for those who do not practice competition but love to go out into the sea.

 

There are several itineraries to opt for: in this article, we have mentioned just some of the wonders of this extraordinary region. Embarking to explore Sardinia by sailing boat is always a surprise, which leaves unique treasures in the heart that cannot be found elsewhere.
