Fishing in Sardinia
With its long sandy beaches, stunning rocky coastline, and luscious green mountains, Sardinia has been a favorite haunt for holiday-makers across Europe for decades. But the second-largest island in the Mediterranean is only now taking advantage of its fishing potential. Come fishing in Sardinia and explore the rich nearshore and offshore waters, and get your hands on some of the Med’s most sought-after fish!
Almost all of Europe’s favorite seafood call the Mediterranean waters home, and you’ll get to hit a range of waters in search of all of them. Hit the shallower waters nearshore and get your hands on tasty creatures like Dentex, Grouper, Seabream, Diplodus, and Seabass. Meanwhile, an offshore adventure will see you target beasts such as Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Swordfish.
Spend anywhere from four to eight hours fishing nearshore, with a full day needed to get to the deeper waters. You can even take advantage of even shorter trips to target such beauties as Squid, or spend up to three days on the water. Some captains even offer you the chance to go fishing at night, so fishing in Sardinia really has it all!
Most anglers coming to the island will look for a charter near their hotel. The northeastern region around Olbia is a favorite with tourists and anglers alike, so get ready for a thrilling Sardinia fishing adventure here.
