Cannigione is a small maritime town located on the north eastern coast of Sardinia, an Italian island south of Corsica. With crystal clear waters, picturesque views and some of the best beaches of the Smeralda coast, Cannigione is a must see if you plan on hiring a boat in Sardinia. The small village has become a hotspot on the island, and one of the most popular places to visit on the island. Whether you want to relax on the golden beaches, or cruise along the mesmerising shores, Cannigione has everything you would want for a perfect boating holiday.
Cannigione is in the middle of the Mediterranean sea, and therefore it has a local mediterranean climate. This means the weather is best from the month of May to October, but still has relatively warm temperatures all year round.
The high season in Cannigione is during the months of summer, in July and August. This is when the temperatures are at the highest and when the tourist population is at its peak. As a result, the demand increases during these months and so do the prices and the lack of availability for yacht charters.
We suggest that you hire a boat in Sardinia off season, in spring or fall. If you plan on hiring a boat during the summer, we strongly recommend that you book well in advance.
Prices really depend on the type and size of the boat you wish to rent. For bigger and more expensive boats, the rental prices are adequately higher.
You can expect to rent a motorboat at a starting price of around 115€ per day. For a sailboat, you can rent one for around 590€ for a whole week.
The prices increase a lot during the high season because of the higher demand. So if you wish to rent a boat in summer, book your trip in advance to get the best prices.
The licence requirements depend on the type and the size of the boat, same as for the prices. You will always need a boating CV to explain your previous experiences.
Usually for small sailboats, you won’t need a boating certificate if you don’t plan on sailing further than 10km from the harbour.
If you want to hire bigger or more powerful motorboats than 40 HP, the authorities will ask for a boat licence.
In Europe, you can use your national boating certificate as it is usually approved in other European Union countries. We suggest passing the ICC (International Competence Certificate).
There are plenty of activities you can do in Cannigione, and more broadly in Sardinia. Hire a boat in town and go on a cruising adventure along the coast, go snorkelling, explore the sea floors and lively sealife.
If you want more of a relaxing vacation, sail along the coasts, go from one town to another and visit the beautiful beaches that separate them. You could also watch the beautiful sunset at the end of the day.
