Corsica & Northern Sardinia - 14 Day Yacht Charter Itinerary
A 14-day private yacht charter itinerary visiting the finest spots in Corsica & Sardinia.
Fly into Bastia in North East Corsica and join the boat in the port next to the old quarter of Bastia, which is surrounded by delightful restaurants and cafes along the pretty waterfront.
After a delicious breakfast prepared by your chef, enjoy an exciting zip over to Macinnagio, a small fishing village amongst rolling hills that looks much as it did 50 years ago. Stop on the way for a refreshing swim and sunbathe on the well-cushioned flybridge.
Head around to the western side of Cap Corse stopping at one of the many beautiful anchorages for a light Mediterranean lunch, and perhaps a little water skiing. Then a sunset cruise to the town of St. Florent which dates from the 16th century, now a thriving and picturesque place that fairly sizzles in the summer though in a laid back way.
Next stop is Calvi, a fun loving seaside town and once a Roman trading post. A vast citadel rises up from the sea overlooking the seafront bars and restaurants, while at the edge of town a long sandy beach stretches for miles.
From Calvi gently cruise further south to the Bay of Girolata which you can explore in the high speed jet boat or snorkel in the sparkling clear waters. Pass the night in the village of Girolata at the head of the bay. Langouste lovers may want to try the Restaurant Le Bel’Ombre, which is famous for its locally caught seafood.
Visit the Gulf of Porto for water sports action or take a trip into the charming old village of Porto itself. In the late afternoon explore the stunning coastline around the Cap Rossu to Ajaccio, the bustling capital of Corsica and the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte.
Head for Propriano perhaps anchoring off the golden stretch of beach at Porto Pollo en route to paddle in the delicious waters or relax on the sand before a tempting lunch. Thunder back to port as the sun sets on another perfect day.
Spend the early part of the day anchored at Campo Moro, a large deep bay sheltered from the prevailing westerly winds, perfect for relaxing or enjoying some water sports, maybe try an exhilarating ride in the Donut! Onward to Bonifacio where wind eroded limestone cliffs create the western Mediterranean’s most dramatic and memorable natural harbours. Bonifaico is famous for it’s fish soup and the views from the citadel atop the cliffs.
Speed around the southern tip of the island to Porto Vecchio on the east coast. This is a picturesque and prosperous old town surrounded by beautiful bays suitable for anchorage where you can spend a tranquille afternoon.
Time to head South again, this time to the Italian island of Sardinia, stopping to anchor off the gorgeous island of Maddelena for lunch, then onto Porto Cervo. Cervo was originally built by the Agha Khan, as a playground for Europe’s glitterati; it’s a shopping paradise, with all the big names a stones throw away from each other. Every evening the people throng the pretty streets and restaurants to see and be seen!
Just around the corner from Cervo is a fantastic anchorage in the bay of the famous Hotel Cala di Volpi, where the water is clear blue and the beaches whiter than white. Why not mix with the jet set and take lunch in the hotel itself before going in to Porto Rotondo, which has a very attractive marina and friendly atmosphere.
Cruise round to the island of Tavalara, which is a high granite island that overlooks the east coast. After a day in the sun and sea, thunder back at an exhilarating pace to Porto Rotondo.
Zip over to the island of Caprera to anchor in Tahiti Bay with its beautiful tiny beach, clear deep water and high cliffs, or venture further on to the island of Budelli to experience the most wonderful shallow swimming, before returning to Cervo.
Enjoy a last stroll around the town, or some last minute designer shopping before flying out of Olbia, which is 30 minutes by taxi from Porto Cervo.
