Cruising the Coast of Corsica

by • May 10, 2016 • TravelComments (0)1058

Explore the spectacular coast of Corsica from the comfort of your own private yacht. Cruise the azure sea, dropping anchor close to charming port towns.

The vast cliff faces that line the coastal of the island of Corsica provide a spectacular backdrop for a yachting cruise. The French island sits off the coast of Italy in the Mediterranean Sea and so bears resemblance to the boot-shaped nation through its architecture and culture.

The Corsican coast is the perfect place to cruise in a luxury yacht. In the summer months, the region is bathed in sunshine for up to 12 hours each day, with temperatures reaching a high of 35 degrees. There are numerous charming coastal towns that encourage seafarers to follow the curve of the land, drawing adventurers from one idyllic location to the next.

The largest port on the island – Calvi – is the perfect place to begin a yachting itinerary. From the port is visible the historic citadel, which overlooks the coastal town and provides the perfect place to explore once on shore. While leaving the comfort of your yacht may be difficult on these azure waters,

Calvi certainly makes the venture worthwhile. The charmingly quaint back alleys that maze away from the port will while away your time, while the spectacular scenery that is visible from the shore will take your breath away.

Faring Southwards, you’ll reach the Fango Valley, which is a UNESCO world heritage site – and deservedly so. The incomparable scenery of the mountainous setting is well worth exploring and attracts holidaymakers in their droves. The Fango River flows from the mountains into the sea, and is best appreciated from the comfort of your yacht.

No yacht cruise in Corsica would be complete without stopping off in Ajaccio – the principal commune on the island. The palm tree-lined esplanade is particularly stunning. The exclusive town is steeped in history and attracts visitors throughout the year. Ajaccio should be at the top of every Corsican yacht holiday’s itinerary.
