Choose the cabin cruise option for a first experience at sea or start renting your own sailboat or catamaran in Corsica.
Corsica has 620 km of coastline, more than 200 superb beaches, nature reserves and mountain refuges. Its mild, Mediterranean climate has favoured the development of evergreen oak forests and the protection of many bird species. The Scandola nature reserve is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Several protected species such as the mouflon and the Corsican red deer thrive in the mountains of the south of the island. In addition to its breathtaking natural beauty, Corsica is steeped in history. Further south in the Lavezzi Islands, the shallow depths of the seabed make Corsica a paradise for sailboat rentals.
Corsica offers one of the longest long-distance hiking trails in Europe, 40 varieties of orchids, very rare species of lichens and mosses and a wonderful cuisine, so that one may be tempted to stay only on land. But its marine culture is also very present. Dolphin and whale sanctuaries surround the island. Discover the sea caves next to Bonifacio, or go for a fishing trip at sea. Lake or river trout fishing is also a local pastime. Diving, swimming, paragliding, are some of the activities offered on this island that the Greeks named "Kalliste", the Island of Beauty.
Port of arrival of ferries coming from the continent, Calvi is famous for its unavoidable bay well protected from the Mistral. The port is perfectly equipped and located at the foot of the famous citadel a few minutes from the city center. Calvi is the ideal starting point to visit the north of the island (Île-Rousse, St-Florent and the Corsican Cape) during your cruise but also for a trip to Ajaccio without forgetting an anchorage in the mythical cove of Girolata.
The choice of authenticity: succumb to the typical and timeless character of this preserved site. Its location is ideal for taking advantage of the best waterways and for quick access to Bonifacio and the splendid Lavezzi and Maddalena islands located in the Bouches de Bonifacio. The perfect place to rent your catamaran and get the closest access to these white sandy beaches.
Ajaccio, imperial base and birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte. Known for its exceptional climate and for its gentle way of life, Ajaccio is the perfect starting point for rent your sailboat in Corsica and to sail along the gulf to the Bloodthirsty Islands, Propriano, then Bonifacio.
Situated on the Côte de Nacre, only a few miles from Porto Vecchio and Bastia, Solenzara is the perfect starting port for quiet sailing well protected from the Mistral wind.
The prevailing wind in this region of the Mediterranean generally blows from the northwest. Beware of the Mistral, which can blow very hard from the Gulf of Lion and raise an impressive sea on the west coast of Corsica. From April to October there is a phenomenon of thermal breezes in the afternoon. The winds are often stronger in the gulfs and on the capes, the anchorages are generally calm at night. The water temperature varies from 18 to 29°C, ideal for the success of your sailing cruise in Corsica. During the summer months, from May to September, the winds are on average force 3 to 5. In winter, the weather is influenced by depressions coming from the Atlantic. Winds can reach force 6 (sometimes more) and blow from the south-west or north-west.
