Corsica Yacht Charter Guide

Superb sailing conditions, deep azure blue waters and white sandy half-moon bays all feature on a Corsican yacht charter. The unspoiled, rugged mountain scenery and deep shadowy river gorges make a magnificent backdrop to the beautiful anchorages you’ll find along your way. Inland there are friendly people and a fascinating countryside to discover. The white cliffs of Corsica change to the red rock of Sardinia to the south. Combine both islands on a charter - two countries, two cultures and some great new places to discover.

About Yacht Charters in Corsica

Chartering from Ajaccio, birthpace of Napolean Bonaparte, and  you are within reach of a spectacular coastline, framed by rugged mountains interspersed by lonely river valleys, with a succession of beautiful beaches, ancient villages and lively harbours along the way.  On a two-week yacht charter you can circumnavigate the whole island of Corsica, with time to visit the Italian islands of Sardinia and Elba. A one-week charter provides time to sail either south or northwards to explore the west coast region, retruning in your tracks.

The Corsican people are as proud of their fine cuisine as they are of their history, and embrace the present with equal gusto. You will be enchanted by authentic local restaurants, the food and wine in themselves giving a good  enough reason for visiting tthis unique island that is French, but quite distinct from France.  

There is an excellent supply of boats available at bases on both ends of the Island. Talk to us about your itinerary, your timeframe and visit objectives, and we will advise on the best base to use and the boat that's ideal  for your needs.
