Many traditional Sardinian dishes have deep roots from Spain and North Africa.
It is also good to know that this island has been promoted by National Geographic as one of the seven “Blue Zones” in the world, which host the largest concentrations of centenarians. It is now evident that the Mediterranean diet has a primary role in defining wellness styles.

Very difficult question to answer, here everything is genuine and good. Cheeses, fish, meat dishes and cold cuts as well as pasta, preferably freshly made and then wine and liqueurs.
If you have never been to Sardinia then we just give you a taste of what to ask and try maybe on board your yacht.
Definitely worth trying as first courses are the Fregula and the Culurgiones.
The fregula, a pasta format made of small balls of durum wheat semolina, similar to couscous, testifying to the North African influence on Sardinian cuisine.
Traditionally fregula is served with seafood, often clams, with the addition of saffron, obviously local saffron. This type of pasta is rolled up and toasted strictly by hand.
The Culurgiones are nothing more than larger ravioli and are traditionally stuffed with mashed potatoes and pecorino cheese, a touch of mint, before being lightly boiled. Usually served with a simple fresh tomato sauce.
Another typical element of Sardinian cuisine, so much so as to be considered “the gold of Sardinia” is the Bottarga. Also known as “Mediterranean caviar”. These are seasoned fish eggs, usually mullet, most of which come from the Cabras Lagoon, on the west coast of the island. It is also possible to find the tuna bottarga, with a stronger flavor.
For true connoisseurs it will be possible to ask your chef on board bottarga served in thin slices with olive oil, as an appetizer, or in salad with seafood.
Treat yourself to luxury to satisfy body and mind during your stay in Sardinia aboard a luxury yacht.
Do not miss the typical Sardinian sweets, or the Seadas.
The Seadas is one of the most appreciated sweets of the Sardinian tradition, which you will find in restaurants and pastry shops all over the island. A sweet fried dumpling of round semolina, stuffed with pecorino cheese and lemon zest. The seadas are served hot and seasoned with honey. The combination of flavors is superb.
The cheeses of Sardinia are a real delicacy, both fresh ones such as excellent ricotta and seasoned ones. the most famous and appreciated is the Pecorino Sardo. It is a hard cheese, with a salty and hazelnut flavor.
The best known and most popular wine of Sardinia is cannonau, the local name of grenache. Cannonau accounts for almost a third of Sardinian wine production, but there are also many other varieties to watch out for.
Vernacchia of Oristano
Another variety with an ancient Sardinian pedigree, coming from the west coast of the island. Full-bodied and aromatic, it is a perfect aperitif or an accompaniment to your seadas.
Vermentino di Gallura
It is a straw-colored wine that goes well with seafood, while if you are looking for something sweet, try the Malvasia di Bossa,from the region south of Alghero, considered one of the best sweet wines.
Myrtle is the Sardinian liqueur par excellence, obtained from the berries of the wild myrtle plant, which grows throughout the island.
The drink, with a sweet herbaceous aroma, is available in two varieties, a dark red version and a white myrtle,and is traditionally served well fresh as a digestive after dinner.
The superlative food, the crystal clear sea, the mild climate and the warm welcome of the Sardinians are just some of the basic ingredients for a yacht holiday in Sardinia without equal.
