Full Day excursions
A full day among the marvels of northern Sardinia
The sailing ship Pulcinella
The Pulcinella is a period Norwegian sailing ship with traditional red sails that will accompany you on a relaxing and romantic tour. After the departure from the marina at Cala Capra, the excursion follows a passage between the islands of the La Maddalena Archipelago and the North Coast of Gallura with stops at Budelli on the famous “Spiaggia del Cavaliere” and on the uninhabited island of Spargi.
A delicious lunch of sea food specialities and typical Sardinian local products will be served on board together with some excellent wine, and an expert crew will follow you throughout the day. Depending on weather conditions, a variation to the itinerary may be possible with the Isola Piana in Corsica as the destination. An incredible experience. The tour makes use of the engine for certain sections and the sails for the return journey.
Mini-cruise to Corsica
For those wishing to discover the most delightful places in the Corsican Archipelago, we suggest this mini-cruise using our fast motorboats for a maximum of 12 guests. Crossing the Straits of Bonifacio is always a tremendous experience, and often made more so by the chance to see dolphins and on rare occasions even whales.
This round trip departs from the marina at Cala Capra passing below the famous Roccia dell’Orso and the North coast of Palau and after a short stop at the resort Valle dell’Erica, arrives at the characteristic small town of Bonifacio for a visit to its charming old centre.
The voyage continues along the South-East coast of Capo Pertusato, cruising below the high limestone cliffs to reach Punta lo Sperone and the striking stretch of sand that is Isola Piana for a first swim stop. After a delicious light lunch prepared by the Hotel we continue to the island of Lavezzi where we disembark for a pleasant stroll around the island, the chance to explore the enchanting sea bottom, or just to relax on the beach.
During the late afternoon and after a snack offered by the crew, we return to the hotel.
Tour of Gallura
The high inland area of Gallura is a marvellous resource for the North of Sardinia, a tableau of well-preserved ancient traditions set in fabulous natural scenery. This excursion, particularly recommended for those wanting to discover the authentic Gallura, reaches into the heart of this ancient region, crossing gentle hills covered with the famous natural sculptures carved out of the granite by the Mistral wind.
After having travelled across the luxuriant Gallura countryside, itself an open window onto the 19th century and the culture of the “Stazzi”, we reach the geographical heart of this granite area stopping for a short visit in the charming town of Luogosanto.
From here we proceed to the hermitage at San Trano and its typical dwelling before crossing the splendid granite landscape of Monte Pulchiana towards Aggius where we will visit the Meoc, the biggest ethnographic museum in Sardinia and the Banditry Museum, ( the only one in Italy). After a rewarding pause in the open air to enjoy the light lunch prepared by the Hotel, we continue with a visit to the Nuraghe Maiori at Tempio Pausania, which bears witness to the island’s incredible archaeological heritage. During the tour a snack and tasting of typical local products is planned together with our expert local guides.
The tour lasts about 7 hours.
