Corsica yacht charter guide
Corsica’s west coastline is home to rugged cliffs that drop dramatically into the sea, providing a picturesque backdrop to any luxury yacht charter. What’s more, you are never far from a sandy cove in Corsica and the southwest corner of the island is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean, including the Portigliolo – a huge arc of pure white sand. Other beaches such as Campomoro, Palombaggia, Santa Giulia and Rondinara offer quiet retreats backed by charming fishing villages. If you’re seeking some adrenaline-filled adventures, take a trek to the Col de Bavella, shadowed by the striking and magnificent Aiguilles de Bavella. For sunbathers, the northern shore is also home to an expanse of magnificent beaches, some of which are so deserted they are only accessible by yacht or mule.
