Yacht Charter Itinerary Corsica


Corsica & Sardinia

Two of the world’s finest charter destinations that blend class, charm, and idyllic natural beauty

A charter in Corsica and Sardinia promises turquoise Mediterranean waters, small pristine islands, charming mountainside villages, and endless golden-sand beaches. And while the islands are only a few miles apart, their personalities are distinct and diverse.

Corsica is the smaller of the two islands, and although it’s a region of France, its close proximity to Italy offers a unique fusion of the two cultures and styles. A single chain of mountains makes up two-thirds of the island, providing hikers with excellent trails and rugged landscapes to explore. From snorkelling and sunbathing, to visiting historical sites and sampling local delicacies, a Corsica yacht charter offer a wealth of choices.

At the southern end that borders Sardinia, you’ll find the La Maddalena archipelago, a majestic maze of small islets and coves, known as one of the best cruising grounds in the entire Mediterranean. Making a stop at this oasis on the way to Sardinia is a must.

Sardinia is the second-largest island in the Mediterranean and offers visitors unspoiled white-sand beaches, glistening turquoise waters, and picturesque towns steeped in history. Sardinia’s ultra-exclusive Costa Smeralda yacht club is a luxurious stopover when travelling by charter, and further south, the chic Porto Cervo offers excellent sailing grounds right offshore. Land exploration is a nature lover’s paradise, with horseback riding, mountain trails, and local celebrations always taking place.

This suggested itinerary offers a way to experience best of both Corsica and Sardinia, taking in the local culture, popular attractions, and the distinctive personality they each radiate.

Porto-Vecchio to the Lavezzi Islands

Meet your yacht in Corsica at the charming harbor town of Porto-Vecchio. Steeped in history, the port is overlooked by an ancient fort, a perfect spot to explore before cruising to the Lavezzi Islands to the south. These uninhabited islands, located in the Strait of Bonifacio between Corsica and Sardinia, are only accessible by yacht, offering a secluded respite among granite-flanked islands. This area’s distinction as a UNESCO World Heritage Site affords exceptional diving in majestic reefs. Sip a cocktail and enjoy a delicious on-board meal prepared by your chef.

Indulge in a delicious meal before returning to your haven on the water.
