If you’re looking for an activity holiday where you can learn to sail or even perfect your style, Sardinia is just the place for you: a paradise for sailing, both if you’re a beginner or a more experienced sailboater. Calapineta in collaboration with the Amfibie Treks Sailing School offers individual or group lessons in centreboard or catamaran sailing and windsurfing. Lessons are run from the beach at Santa Lucia.

A south-easterly wind blows almost daily in the Santa Lucia bay, 2-3 Beaufort in the morning and 4-5 Beaufort in the afternoon. The sea is generally calm in the summer months, providing the perfect weather conditions for beginners. The water is warm in the summer too, so there’s no need for a wetsuit! But if you do feel the cold, Amfibie Treks have wetsuits for hire.
