my favourite place corsica

Although on a bright sunny day the Cote d’Azur is visible from Corsica, that world feels far away when you are cruising along the stunning rugged coastline with dolphins playing in your wake or when you’re anchored in absolute peace and tranquillity.

Corsica is the most mountainous island in the Mediterranean, forming a spectacular backdrop to the 1,000km of coastline waiting to be discovered by visiting yachts.

Take an evening stroll in Rocapina, picnic on Barcaggio beach, cruise to Porto for a fantastic catch-of-the-day lunch, explore the Lavezzi Islands or anchor in Girolata to get active with your yacht’s toys.

Bonifacio is a spectacular destination: arriving by yacht through a dramatic gateway of steep stone cliffs into the natural harbour is a breathtaking experience.

For energetic types, the island offers opportunities to get active in its crystal-clear waters or mountain ranges, and for utter relaxation, escape the crowds and experience spectacular scenery. Just a short hop from the Cote or a leisurely cruise from Costa Smeralda, Corsica is a sensational destination within easy reach.
