On the Costa Smeralda, Liscia Ruja is a stunning anchorage. In the peak months it hosts an exclusive restaurant/bar nestled in the dunes. Just a couple of miles away, Cala di Volpe is situated in a natural harbor and is famous for its luxury hotel, designed by the architect Jacques Couelle. During the summer this bay becomes home to ‘Megayachts’ and is quite a sight to be seen.
Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo are both is a beautiful stops, with modern marina complexes, including high-end boutiques and bars. It is definitely worth taking a stroll through the narrow streets, stopping for a cocktail and some people-watching!
The archipelago of La Maddalena is a national park, and is blessed.. with crystal clear waters and sand the color of a good rosé wine!
Here one can spend days exploring and enjoying the marvelous anchorages. The main island of the group is La Maddalena which is surrounded by Caprera, Razzoli, Budelli, Santa Maria, Santo Stefano and Spargi. Archaeological findings show signs of habitation back to prehistoric times.
This is a fantastic opportunity to take your first-ever scuba-dive as the surrounding waters are shallow and clear.
Porto Pollo is located on the Northern coastline of Sardinia. We will stop here just before we cross to the Island of Lavezzi and on to Bonifacio, Corsica. This beautiful area is a haven for Kite Surfers and Wind Surfers. Kayak or Stand-up paddle ashore and enjoy a walk along the stunning white-sand beach, which is several miles long. You can stop for a refreshment at one of the beach bars or try your hand at Kite or Wind at one of the schools on the beach. Otherwise, just relax on board and watch the action taking place around you.
After a short sail in the Strait of Bonifacio, we leave Italy and arrive in French waters (no customs are required). The Lighthouse of Lavezzi watches over the strait and its magnificent isles of granite. We stop for lunch at Iles Lavezzi, a gorgeous little island, where you will be amazed by the rock formations and crystal-clear water.
From Lavezzi it is just a short hop to the magnificent Bonifacio where we will berth for the night. The entrance is spectacular!
On our 10 day itinerary, we will then make our way to the East and to the North towards Porto Vecchio. This deep natural harbor is several miles long and is overlooked by the historical city.
After a refreshing afternoon swim at one of the many delightful bays, a stroll up to the ‘Old Town’ for an aperitif and dinner at one of the fine French restaurants is a must! This is a great chance to experience Corsican culture. The town is delightful.
