On arrival at the vessel, you will be welcomed on board by your Captain and crew with a chilled glass of champagne. The Captain will give a short safety briefing and discuss your itinerary, and the Chef will discuss your dining requirements. Your Sunseeker will then head out of Porto Cervo to anchor in one of the nearby bays for lunch and watersports.
After a leisurely afternoon, the motoryacht will return to Porto Cervo. Early evening drinks will be served before going ashore for dinner at one of the resort’s excellent restaurants.
Day Two Porto Cervo – Bonifacio, Corsica
After breakfast, your motoryacht will head north to explore the Sardinian coastline further before heading towards Corsica. Your destination today is Bonifacio on the southernmost tip of Corsica.
Bonifacio is one of the Mediterranean’s most dramatic and memorable natural harbours. It is famous for its fish soup and views from the citadel, with its commanding position on top of the cliffs.
Corsica & Sardinia
In the evening, you may wish to try the elegant restaurant at the ‘Hotel Residence du Centre Nautique’, specialising in seafood and pasta.
Day Three Bonifacio – Ajaccio, Corsica
Your Sunseeker will head north-westwards, hugging the fabulous coastline, before stopping to visit the bay of Cupabia for full watersports action.
After lunch, your motoryacht will continue on its way to Ajaccio. The town of Ajaccio, the capital of Corsica, is the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte. Its hustle and bustle is set in stark contrast to the tranquillity of the surrounding areas. However, it still retains the picturesque Riviera town feel.
As the evening falls, you may wish to visit the nearby Isles Sanguinaires, named after the colour that these granite islands turn as the sun sets.
Returning to port, you may wish to visit ‘Le 20123’. This restaurant, offering superb food, has been built to resemble a small hill village. It even has a fountain and a Vespa scooter parked on the ‘street’!
Day Four Ajaccio – Propriano, Corsica
After a restful night, you will make your way to the old town of Propriano – a beautiful town, surrounded by green hills which slope gently up to the mountains behind, encircled like a necklace by the white, sandy beaches which stretch around the gulf. En route to the town, you will stop over at Porto Pollo which sits on a golden stretch of beach under gentle, wooden cultivated hills. This once f ishing village is now a popular tourist resort. Later in the afternoon, you will cruise to Propriano to moor overnight.
Day Five Propriano – Porto Vecchio, Corsica
Today, you will travel south eastwards to Porto Vecchio, Corsica.
You may wish to stop en route for a leisurely lunch and swim before arriving at the old Roman galley port of Porto Vecchio – which is literally carved out of the rock and offers spectacular scenery. Here, you will spend a tranquil afternoon. It is a great place to explore, and the countryside in this area is revered throughout Corsica.
