A country of tales and legends, Sardinia has remained independent and isolated for a long time. This certainly explains its strong characteristics, its original culture and its superb, very well-protected scenery... Sardinia is above all visited to discover an authentic island, a few miles south of Corsica. The second biggest island in the Mediterranean (after Sicily) really deserves more than just a detour along its 1,850 km of coastline.
- FORMALITIES : We are in Europe, so there are no formalities for Europeans; a valid passport for North Americans.
- HEALTH: There are no compulsory vaccinations, and the health service is good.
- WEATHER: From April to October, the weather is good and dry, and even very hot in summer. This is the best period for cruising in Sardinia. But the winter remains quite pleasant, with temperatures which can reach over 20°C during the day. Beware, however, of gales. The Mediterranean can be dangerous and does not always give a warning of its coming furies. It is essential to follow the weather forecasts closely.
- SAILING CONDITIONS: Charts, buoyage and weather forecasts are well-perfected. Cruising in Sardinia does not pose any major problems.
- MONEY: Euros
