7 days Itinerary - North Sardinia / South Corsica
Olbia, one of the Sardinia’s largest town, city of history and culture, fun, fashion and shopping and also a protected area and marine reserve, a great place where to start your yachting cruise. Along the shores of the Gulf of Olbia alternate white sand beaches and cliffs that overlook a sea of blue crystal. Heading north along Golfo Aranci there are a mix of attractive beaches situated in the Lido Pittulongu characterized by golden sand and crystalline emerald waters, alternate with less crowded areas such as Cala Moresca with the small island of Figarolo and Cala Sabina, inaccessible by land, where it’s possible to anchor and enjoy the untouched beauty that nature offers. Stop along the way for swimming and diving. Relax and enjoy the sun and the sea, tasting delicious snacks and drink tasty cocktails. Continuing towards the north there are wonderful location by the Gulf of Marinella, Porto Rotondo, and then throughout the Costa Smeralda.
Cala di Volpe
Awake leisurely after your night out and cruise in your yacht around to Cala di Volpe. The cream colored beaches, with golden traces, found in front of the rocks, take on different colors according to the time of day. Spend the day enjoying the water toys or relaxing on the beautiful beach before heading ashore for dinner at the famous Cala di Volpe Hotel.
La Maddalena Archipelago
Heading North after a few miles you will see the magnificent Maddalena Archipelago, known as the Polynesia of Italy for its turquoise waters. We recommend to stop in some of the Archipelago islands before making the crossing to Corsica. This is the wild heart of the Maddalena National Marine Park. Crystal clear waters, pink sand, a series of coves and rocks, blue cliffs rising from deep sea beds, intense colors. Spend the day, visiting the isles Spargi, Budelli and Razzoli, a beautiful piece of nature with Mediterranean flora and fauna. Budelli Island is famed for its pink sand, from corals that have been shattered and smashed by the sea. Around the southern part of the island you’ll find the most beautiful beaches like Cala Piatto with its emerald colored sea and white sand. Around Budelli Island there are some great anchorages.
Treasures of Corsica
Cruising towards Corsica it will take just over an hour to reach the stunning islets of Cavallo and Lavezzi en route to Bonifacio with its magnificent citadel. You can stop along the way for swimming and diving from your boat. Spend your day relaxing, enjoying the sun and the sea, tasting delicious snacks the chef will prepare for you and drinking cold refreshments. Drop anchor and enjoy these low-lying pink granite islands, where you’ll find warm crystalline turquoise waters. This island is a very naturalistic beauty. Its attractions are the beauty of the water, the bays and its flora and fauna both at the sea so as inland.
No yacht charter to Corsica is quite complete without entering the dramatic port of Bonifacio, situated at the very south of the island. The port is located in a fjord like inlet, which you enter through high white limestone cliffs. The town teeters up above the lively harbor and it’s a steep, invigorating walk up into the picturesque streets. A visit to see the breathtaking views from the Citadel is a must. Maybe enjoy dinner at the ‘Club Nautique’ on the harbor, a popular local restaurant with a pleasant view over the port offering excellent pasta and fish dishes. For golf enthusiasts the Golf of Sperone is a magnificent course set in a wild and unspoilt location. Bonifacio sits like a masterpiece in the extreme south of Corsica and is a unique place of interest. No one can resist the fascination of this old town which is dazzlingly sits perched atop a cliff, nor the appeal of its old alleys which climb up toward the sky. Bonifacio is a town of immense charm and a wonderful place to explore.

Cruise in the yacht round to the island of Tavolara, which is a high granite island that overlooks the east coast. After a day in the sun and sea, cruise back to Olbia Port for the night. Nightlife in Olbia is very lively and offers plenty of options everyday: the main square, Santa Margherita, is surrounded by cocktail lounges, bars, clubs and local seafood restaurants.
