A famous old city due to a deep narrow fjordlike inlet and because houses are very close to the cliffs end. Now in end July extremely crowded and busy with lots of tourists, boats of all kind and cars. Very expensive marina. It was an easy decision to leave for a nice quiet bay in north Sardinia again.

Porto Cervo, NE Sardinia
North East Sardinia
Olbia in the middle of this area, is a dirty port with big ships/ferries but with a very pleasant, clean and touristic city.
Around Olbia there is a large area with a very beautiful archepelago with lots of nice beaches to drop the anchor. If you prefer to visit a marina, you will be robbed, it’s very expensive indeed!
For instance, per night
Circolo Nautico in Olbia, 78€
Cavallo in Olbia, 125€
Rotondo, just N of Olbia, 205€
Porto Cervo, N of Olbia, 150€ for a mooring buoy
The beaches are wonderful, but on weekends crowded.
To rent an umbrella and sun chair is not cheap
