Arbatax – continued

C&C
We spent three nights in Arbatax taking a break from the journey south. At this time of year we had heard that Sardinia drops its marina prices earlier than Corsica and at E20 per night this seems to be the case in this marina. We did bits, odd shopping and boat work during the days but mostly relaxed and read.

On Tuesday afternoon when it had cooled a little we went for a walk up to the lighthouse above the harbour. It’s a good 45 minute climb up the road/track from the town and there are some good views. Unfortunately at the top much of the view is blocked by the military buildings there but you are able to see parts of the coastline and the old lens of the lighthouse which at night can be seen 26 nm away . We were told that it is considered to be the most beautiful lighthouse in Sardinia due to its Liberty style.

We had drinks onboard Free Spirits II on the Monday night and then Roger and Heather kindly invited us to share their ‘pasta bake’ on the Tuesday evening. We provided the salad and we had a good chat until about 21.30 when we returned to Splice to get a good night’s sleep before our early start the next day. We like Arbatax, the marina is a good stop on the journey up or down the east coast.
