AND UNIQUE AMBIENCE
Bastia is Corsica’s second largest city and its main economic and commercial hub. Several charters of the island depart from Bastia’s fully-equipped port. The nearby Vieux Port boasts top-quality restaurants and cafés.
Bastia beckons with picture-perfect views, baroque churches, windy alleys, and the sorbet-colored buildings of the Citadel in the Terra Vecchia district. The bustling Viale Paoli and rue César Campinchi, running parallel to Place Saint-Nicolas, are rimmed with ateliers specializing in hand-made goods, brand boutiques, and quaint cafés where you can stop and chill in this lovely Corsican town, before returning to your luxury charter to reach the nearby beach of Marana. This long strip of sand is backed by the pond of Biguglia, a popular spot for trekking and birdwatching fans.
The town features its own pebbly beach that gets particularly crowded in the summer. Best to choose the more comfortable Plage de l’Arinella, a vast strip of soft white sand about a kilometer from Bastia.
North of Bastia Capo Corso is a must-visit beach, one of Corsica’s best, in fact. Aim your luxury charter to this stretch of the sea and spend time exploring the shoreline, dotted with inlets and small bays, like Marcaggio, Macinaggio, and many picturesque spots and fishermen villages.
Bastia is the ideal spot to embark on a Corsica luxury charter, but also a perfect site to take a relaxing break from navigation. Corsica truly meets the wishes of every traveller who wants to make unique experiences on a charter.
