CORSICA AND SARDINIA

Separated by the narrow Strait of Bonifacio, Corsica and Sardinia sit off the Italian and French coasts. Despite being so close, these islands display a character of their own – one Italian-inspired, the other, French. Both have tranquil bays on rugged coastlines, with beautiful beaches to relax on.

Sardinia

Sardinia is a rocky island that is reminiscent of parts of California. This Italian island is a story of contrasts, with soaring mountains that fall away to some of the finest beaches in the Mediterranean. There is much to see and do on the island, from historic Cagliari to the scenic Strada Panoramica that runs from Porto Teulada to Chia.

Don’t miss the Su Nuraxi Nuraghe – a large complex of Bronze Age nuraghes (rock structures) in Barumini, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage site. Make sure your charter itinerary includes cruises along the stunning Iglesiente Coast and Sinis Peninsular. A visit to the ultra-luxury Costa Smeralda yacht club is a must, where you will find yourself in good company on your Oyster with the superyacht set – in June they host the Giorgio Armani Superyacht Regatta.

As you would expect, with their Italian heritage, the Sardinians are passionate about food – be assured that the seafood is amazing and the pasta sublime.

Corsica

Corsica, Sardinia’s French neighbour, is a nature lover’s paradise, with many opportunities for outdoor sports. It is known as the Island of Beauty for its remarkable landscapes – its rocky red cliffs that plunge into the turquoise waters, the villages clinging to the mountainsides and breathtaking gorges.

The rugged, untouched landscape is diverse – from stylish coastal towns to the highest mountain, Monte Cinto (2700m). The old port at Bastia is a great place for the first stop of your charter. The beautiful city is known for its colourful houses and the Church of Saint Baptiste. It is also the starting point to Cap Corse which stretches 40 km into the Mediterranean.

Around the coast, you will find many hidden coves with sandy beaches you can have to yourself. Drop anchor, swim and relax for a few hours or a few days. The Réserve Naturelle de Scandola is a marine and land-based nature reserve, known as a destination for scuba divers. This UNESCO World Heritage site is only accessible by boat and its biodiversity is legendary – on land and beneath the waves. Divers will love the aquatic environment that is rich in coral, with grouper, moray eels, red mullets, tuna, and swordfish – if you are lucky, you may even see schools of dolphins.
