Yacht Charter in Corsica
Corsica is a beautiful island with long chalky white beaches, wild cliff coasts, majestic mountains on the horizon, cosy little villages and hospitable islanders. Many exciting experiences await you on a Mediterranean cruise around Corsica - you will be impressed by the breathtaking views, enchanted by the charming lagoons and, not least, enjoy the laid-back lifestyle of Corsica.
Corsica lies between the French Riviera, Sardinia and Tuscany. During the summer months, rainfall is low and in summer, the average temperature is 28 degrees, making it an ideal destination for sailing holidays. The most prevailing winds are from southwest, west and northwest.
Due to Corsica’s strategic position and beauty, the island's history is characterized by conflicts, in which Corsica has suffered numerous invasions, occupations and plunderings. Although the island's residents were often exposed to attacks, the Islanders fought for their homes and were incredibly resilient - it is an aspect of their culture that they are all proud of today.
