Corsica Yacht Charter Guide
A wonderful display of nature at its finest
The French Island of Corsica boasts rugged coastlines, sublime sandy beaches and majestic mountains. The influences of both French and Italian cultures can be found in the cuisine, architecture and dialect making for a unique blend of class and charm which, coupled with its natural splendour, is best discovered on a Corsica yacht charter.
Located to the south of mainland France and to the west of mainland Italy, Corsica is the fourth biggest island in the Mediterranean and, despite its popularity, remains largely undiscovered by tourism. Steeped in rich history and culture, this unspoiled gem is famed for being the birthplace of Napolean. Charming and alluring, this stunning island is adored by sailors and hikers alike, who are drawn here by the unparalleled natural beauty. Corsica is an excellent destination for yacht charters and with deep secluded bays, golden sands and miles upon miles of spectacular coastline, there is no better way to explore the hidden jewels of this remarkable island than from your superyacht.
For beach lovers, the Gulf of Valinco is an unmissable highlight, boasting some of the most beautiful beaches and bays the island has to offer in addition to the vast arcs of sugar white sands which can be found in Portigliolo. Cruise from one beach to the next with Palombaggia, Santa Giulia and Rondinara each offering breathtaking stretches of golden sand. Venture along the turquoise waters of Campomoro before taking to the charming and wonderful community of Bonifacio on Corsica’s southern tip. With the old town teetering atop a cliff and untamed rustic shorelines, Bonifacio offers one of the most unforgettable harbour entrances.
Anchor in glittering bays, sail between quaint fishing villages or trek to the mountain pass at Col de Bavella and admire the awe-inspiring scenery of the Alta Rocca peaks. With easy access from the water and numerous treks varying in difficulty, ramble at your own pace before stopping to picnic amongst the spectacular views of crystal clear waters below. For those looking to take their love of adventure to the water, Corsica offers some of the best spots for diving and snorkelling where you can admire sea sponges, anemones and corals plus a whole party of other marine life.
Corsica is full of character and charisma. Meander around vineyards and olive groves, explore the glittering coastal cities and gaze in awe at the enigmatic hilltop villages. Whether you’re looking to hike, dive and beach hop or delve into the rich and fascinating history there is something for every visitor on this remarkable miniature continent.
