What To ExpectStanding watch over the vessels that pass through the Mediterranean Sea are the French island of Corsica and the Italian island of Sardinia. A best of both worlds scenario arises during a Corsica and Sardinia yacht charter. The provincial French culture blends beautifully with Italian charm as you hop from island to island on a luxury charter yacht.
The fourth largest freestanding island in the Mediterranean, Corsica’s Monte Cinto rises high out the sparkling sea and her rugged and breathtaking coastline is unparalleled, creating striking views for an island cruise by yacht. Enjoy more of the island’s natural beauty with a visit to the Scandola Nature reserve, a World Heritage Site. Sheer cliffs drop into the sea next to jagged precipices hiding stunning grottos. The juxtaposition of red cliffs cascading into a turquoise sea is a feast for the eyes.
The quaint fishing villages flank the island in the north are worth the visit. Once part of the Genovese Empire, these tiny cities of Maccinagio and Centuri offer a view into the past. A wander down the narrow streets through the baroque architecture Bastia brings you from your Corsican yacht charter back in time.
Calvi’s shallow waters and stunning sands are a perfect and popular place to beach during the summer season. Dine at La Table De Bastien for a Michelin-star meal with panoramic views of the bay and the mountains.
Italy’s Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. The white sand beaches, high-end golf clubs, such as Pevero Golf Club, luxury hotels and Michelin-star restaurants make Sardinia’s Costa Smeralda a playground for the rich and famous. A Sardinian yacht charter is not complete without a stop at Porto Cervo’s Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, which is hull-to-hull with the finest luxury yachts in the world from June to September.
Visit Cagliari, a sun-drenched ancient city where history abounds. Once the capital of the Kingdom of Sardinia, walk the streets of antiquity, known as a cultural and artistic center.
A yacht charter of Sardinia is not complete without a tender visit to Neptune’s Grotto in Alghero. The beauty of Capo Caccia’s vertical cliffs is eye-catching — a photographer’s dream. Enjoy an aperitif and meal at the Villa Las Tronas hotel in a candlelit setting and delightful panoramic views on the terrace.
