Spend an idyllic day filled with the cradling sea, the warmth of the sun, the backdrop of beautiful beaches and the evocative scent of Sardinian maquis (wild thyme, lavender, rosemary and other native plants) wafting on the wind. From Cagliari harbor, hoist the sails and cast off into the Riviera’s translucent waters, taking in stretches of sandy shore, secluded bays and sea caves. Stop twice for a dip at choice spots accessible only by boat. Enjoy your guide’s commentary, or zone out to recharge your soul. Munch and sip as you watch the world float by. This is a restorative experience – a wonderful break from touring.
