With a shoreline closer to Africa than Italy, plus crystal-clear diving waters, a beautiful climate and an assortment of caves, corals, wrecks, bays, cliffs and inlets, Sardinia feels like a very exotic destination.

But while the lovely capital, Cagliari, offers all the cool indulgence the upmarket traveller could desire, a truly special Sardinian yacht charter should focus on the northeast of the island.

Here, the irrepressible vim of party resorts like Porto Cervo is supplemented with an astonishing wealth of secluded coves, sheltered anchorages and dramatic views and seascapes. With easy access to Corsica’s southern resorts, it makes an impressively versatile yachting playground.

Tavolara Island

Tavolara explodes from the sea like the pinnacle of a mountain – and yet despite its splendour, it has escaped the development seen elsewhere on the Costa Smeralda. This virgin plot of land is home to only a restaurant, a bar and a beach – for two good reasons. Firstly, it occupies a position beyond the main tourist hub; and secondly, it has been an independent monarchy ever since a 19th-century Genoese sailor proclaimed himself King. As unusual anchorages go, it’s a beauty.
