Sardinia and Corsica

Day 1: Met by crew at Ajaccio airport in Southern Corsica. Short 10 minute drive to the spectacular natural port of Bonifacio. Welcome drinks onboard. If desirable, take a short cruise to the beautiful Lavezzi Islands. Swim and snorkel in the turquoise water or simply relax on the yacht, before heading back to Bonifacio.

Day 2: After a leisurely breakfast on board, cruise up the south east Corsican coastline to Porta Vecchio. Lunchtime stop at one of the bays such as Golfe de Rondinara or Golfe de Santa Giulia. Port Vecchio is an interesting port to explore, with the old town on the hill above the port.
