And what a dramatic and beautiful red granite explosion of mountains and sea-cliffs! Our arrival after 34 hours of sailing 181 miles was this aptly named scene of Capo Bellavista near Arbatax, Sardegna where we found a great anchorage to swim and then rest for the night. As we continued north the next morning the scenery was even more spectacular so we 'hugged' the coastline to better appreciate the awesome views.
In the photo above a large powerboat is motoring close to shore and gives some perspective of the height and mass of the rocky pinnacles and rugged terrain. We completed a 60 mile trek to Ottiolu, south of Olbia and had a calm and cool night with a beautiful sunset (below) before continuing north to Corsica early the next morning
