Yacht Charter Sardinia

In north Sardinia the Costa Smeralda is outstandingly beautiful. It was chosen by the Aga Khan for its picture-book coastline of bays of white sand and turquoise sea, sheltered by rocky headlands overlooking crystal clear waters.

Bonifacio – Lavezzi islands – Porto Vecchio

Bonifacio

A luxury yacht charter of Sardinia is cruising out of port

Bonifacio is a narrow peninsula of white limestone that is ideal if you’re looking for a rare natural and picturesque port. The beautiful haute ville offers winding streets with Genoese architecture, and rises out of sheer, weathered cliffs. Its natural port offers plenty of restaurants and shops, and is frequented in the summer by yachts from throughout the Med. Spend the early evening exploring Bonifacio and dining on the terrace at the fabulous Caravelle restaurant before spending the night in the port.

Set sail in the morning for Porto Vecchio, visiting the Lavezzi Islands en-route (6nm, ¾ hour). Anchor up and explore these granite islands before a spot of lunch, then spend the afternoon sailing up the east coast of southern Corsica.

Holidays to Porto-Vecchio offer the tourist a unique mix of both idyllic unspoilt beaches along Corsica’s southern coast and breathtaking mountain scenery. It also boasts an historical Old Town bustling with vibrant cafes, bars, restaurants, designer boutiques, hotels and a well-equipped marina attracting international yachts.

The beaches around Porto-Vecchio are simply stunning and count the world-famous Palombaggia and Santa Guilia amongst their number. All have pearly white sand and glittering turquoise sea, surrounded by lush countryside. With shallow waters, they are ideal for families. For those who are willing to venture inland, the nearby mountainous Alta Rocca region provides an endless supply of things to do and see with its gorges, rivers and waterfalls. Here there are opportunities for mountain walking, rock climbing, swimming in rock pools, picnicking, horse riding, quad biking and visiting traditional Corsican mountain villages for relaxing lunches.
