Return to Island Solitude...

It was June the 20th, just four days after first doing this camping trip and there we we're back again at spiaggia Rena Bianca, ready to do the trip again and show someone else what a wonderful place these islands are to explore!

We're all pretty excited as we begin the one hour crossing to the first island, Isola di Soffi.
Happily leaving the crazy busy beach for deserted solitude.
Well we are on the Costa Smeralda!
We all had a lovely peaceful crossing, lost in our own thoughts and contentment.
We stop at a lovely small beach facing the mainland for rest and refreshment.
And snorkelling!
Before continuing on to our pre-planned lunch beach on Isole le Camere.
For a very long lunch stop whilst we wait for the many boats and yatchs to leave spiaggia Mortorio where we plan to camp.

Its seriously hot so I put up a tarp to shelter under and chill out.

It was so hard leaving such a lovely beach, I may well camp there next time but our chosen beach for today is on Isola di Mortorio where one of the most beautiful beaches in Sardinia resides.
As we paddle under the low evening sun we can't help but feel very happy about where we were at that moment!

We soon reach the beach and head in through the most amazingly blue water!
I had a few probs with a tent pole breakage but we got it fixed and set camp for the night in what has to be an utterly idyllic location!

In the morning we get up early but linger lazily on the beach, swimming, snorkelling and eating. Even a little volleyball was played too :)
Heading off at around 11:30 we chose to continue to circumnavigate the island of Mortorio
And explore the stunning rock formations that remain hidden to all but sea farers.
In fact we continue down the northern side of the islands to complete our circumnavigation of the islands. 
Its a really lovely trip this and it can be done in a day without camping but camping is highly recommended!

Secluded Island Paradise...

I had a few days free and wanted to do something very special with my lovely lady, Melissa, so I planned a wonderful overnight camping trip to some secluded islands that are part of the Maddalena Islands off the Costa Smeralda.
 We set off from the beautiful though slightly crowded Spiaggia Rena Bianca with much more secluded tranquility in mind!
 An hour later and we reach the deserted Isola di Soffi for a quick rest on-route to a stunning beach we know for lunch!
 Passing rocks and amazing views as we go!
 Playing hide and seek.
 And making the most of our seclusion at our lunch stop on the totally deserted Isola le Camere. 
 Upon leaving for our preferred campspot we noticed the wind had got up to force 5 and was rather rough near the island with one metre waves suddenly rearing up and breaking. Melissa's a good paddler though so we carried on to Isola di Mortorio where the most incredibly beautiful beach was waiting for us!
 After a short twenty minute crossing in lively sea we reached the shelter of Spiaggia di Mortorio which was touched with only the slightest hint of wind.
 We saw our perfect pitch and headed straight for it!
 Living the dream!

 We had the island almost to ourselves during the night :)
 In the morning we push off into the most amazing coloured sea where Milly does some rolling practice before continuing with our journey.
 As we paddle on towards Scogli Mortorietto the swell start to increase and make us feel sea beneath us as well as our distance from the mainland. Its a magical place!

 Our destination of Scogli Mortorietto, the furthest in the chain of islands that we were paddling.
Now we just need to head back to the mainland, making sure to stop at a beautiful secluded beach on-route. Well thats the beauty of paddling by sea kayak, reaching the spots other boats can't!
Can't wait for the next trip!!! :)
