Sardinia alone is a face of Italy so rich with diversity that you’ll need weeks to explore it, which is why Costa Smeralda is the perfect entry point. This 10km (6mi) stretch of coastline between the Gulf of Cugnana and the bay of Arzachena is a beach-lover’s paradise. Imagine an eight-day jaunt aboard a luxury catamaran where your only worry is making sure you get an even tan and the perfect sunset selfie. Shopping town centres, exploring medieval forts and sipping cocktails in seaside bars make this Sardinian excursion one you’ll always remember.
There’s no such thing as cabin fever on this luxury catamaran, with six ensuite, queen-sized cabins to give you the privacy you need. Unwind on the flybridge or in the lounge, sunbathe on the spacious sundeck, and dive into the sea from the laddered platform at the rear.
