Corsica / Sardinia
Sometimes called a mini-continent, Corsica has 385 miles of coastline, more than 200 divine beaches, bountiful nature reserves, and stunning mountain retreats. A gentle Mediterranean climate has promoted rich evergreen forests, and protects a wide variety of bird species. Several endangered animals thrive in the southern alpine mountains of snow-capped glaciers, and the Scandola Nature Reserve is a UNESCO World Heritage site
With one of Europe’s finest hiking trails, 40 varieties of orchids, rare lichens and mosses, and wonderful cuisine, visitors to Corsica may be tempted to stay on land – but there is a vital water culture as well. Swim, dive, or paraglide during your Corsica sailing charter. Visit the whale and dolphin sanctuaries that surround the islands. Explore the sea caves near Bonifacio or do some sea fishing. It’s all right here on Corsica, which the Greeks called “Kalliste” – the Beautiful Island.
Sardinia’s beautiful coastline is strewn with secluded coves that are perfect for exploring . One of the best known beaches is Liscia Ruja which boasts spectacular arc of powdery pink sands whilst the uninhabited island of Mortorio makes for an idyllic location for overnight anchorage. On a Sardinia yacht vacation you will also discover ancient old towns and teetering hilltop villages as well as stylish hangouts and chic cafés.
