The unspoiled and wild natural beauty of the second biggest island of the Mediterranean and the Occitan charm of the South of France cannot help but make a Corsica yacht charter a magical one. Also known as the ‘Scented Island’, Corsica treats its visitors to 385 miles of coastline and over 200 breathtaking beaches, making it one of the most sought-after destinations in the world to charter a luxury yacht.
SOME LUXURY YACHTS FOR CHARTER IN THIS AREA

Corsica is the third largest island of the Mediterranean after Sicily and Sardinia and one of its most picturesque locations to charter a yacht. Located southwest of southern France, Corsica, a French territory, boasts rugged landscapes, rich forests, snow-capped mountains, nature reserves and a rich artistic and cultural life. It offers a unique ambience to those who choose it as their next yachting holiday destination.
With an average temperature of 27° C throughout the summer months, the weather stays warm and sunny well into October. This makes Corsica the perfect destination for an early fall yacht trip to Northern Corsica from Bastia to Cap Corse or the Southern shores, stopping in quaint Ajaccio, the birthplace of Napoleone Bonaparte, before docking at the exclusive Cavallo.
The stretch of land between Porto-Vecchio and Bonifacio features the best beaches, but Calvi (the point of departure of a yacht itinerary in Western Corsica) and the Gulf of Valinco are also worth visiting during a Corsica boat rental.
On the southern tip of Corsica, the impressive harbour of Porto Vecchio is the go-to stop-off for hundreds of luxury sailing and motor yachts throughout the summer. Here, Corsica yacht charter guests will find chic bars, restaurants, nightclubs and luxury boutiques. Further along, visitors will find the sugar-white sandy beach of Palombaggia, shaded by a parasol of pine trees. Moor up your Corsica boat rental nearby for a dip in the azure-blue waters and catch the rays on the powered sand.
Corsica is a natural paradise, where dreamy bays of pearly sand give way to pebbly inlets, perfect for trying out your yacht’s kayaks and water toys. Those searching for picturesque trekking trails and thrilling scuba diving sessions while enjoying their Corsica yacht charter love the views from The Corsica Regional Nature Park (populated with endangered species) and the Natural Reserves of Bouches of Bonifacio. Corsica’s La Maddalena archipelago is another iconic destination to visit on your Corsica boat rental, ideal for water sports and island treks amongst flora and fauna.
The local Corsican cuisine offers foodies a mix of Italian and French flavors with distinctive aromas and ingredients, all of which can be enjoyed during a Corsica boat rental, prepared for you by your yacht’s chef. While fresh fish and seafood are the protagonists of local dishes, there are plenty of exciting meat and dairy options, as well as delicious desserts like the typical Fiadone, a tasty variation of lemon cheesecake!
