The island of Corsica is an ideal destination to discover by boat. The trip starts in Olbia, on the north-east coast of Sardinia.
In the morning, after breakfast, you set sail and, who knows, sail through the smallest kingdom in the world. Like a craggy head of rock extending a sandy promontory towards the visitor, it juts out of the blue Mediterranean off the coast of Sardinia: the island of Tavolara, at about six square kilometres, the smallest inhabited kingdom in the world.
Or Atlantis will sail along the famous “Costa Smeralda” coastal strip, named after the emerald green waters of the sea. On the way to the Strait of Bonifacio you will also find the archipelago of La Madalena. It is made up of more than 62 islands and islets, seven of which are main islands.
From here, the skipper will decide which route is the most suitable from a wind point of view for beautiful days of sailing.
In the south of Corsica, Bonifacio is situated on very eroded cliffs. The entrance to Bonifacio is impressive: a natural fjord-like inlet between high chalk cliffs. The town gave its name to the “Strait of Bonifacio” between Corsica and the island of Sardinia, 12 kilometres away. Bonifacio is one of the most spectacular places on the island. The high town is situated on the 70-metre high plateau of a chalk cliff and the narrow walkways invite you to stroll through the old town.
The west coast of Corsica is perhaps the most varied and spectacular coastline in the entire Mediterranean. Huge rock formations alternate with charming little coves, small fishing villages and challenging mountain villages present themselves to the sailor, as well as wide sandy beaches with crystal-clear waters. The west coast of Corsica offers all this to those who anchor there with a sailboat or call at one of its small harbours.
Between Bonifacio and St Florent, the Corsican coast offers beautiful bays with sandy or rocky beaches. Around Calvi, Ajaccio and Propriano there are numerous sheltered anchorages. Ajaccio holds the record in France with 2,900 hours of sunshine per year. It is also the birthplace of Napoleon and lies between the mountains and the sea in the largest bay on the island. The coast also offers unspoilt landscapes and small coves. Perhaps an excursion to lles Lavezzi, where the water has the colour of a lagoon and invites you to swim.
Possible ports: Calvi, Ajaccio, Propriano, Bonifacio, Bastia.
