AND THE GULF
Saint Florent, also known as Corsica’s Saint-Tropez, is a gem set in an enchanting gulf west of Cap Corse, in the northern part of Corsica. This beloved yachting destination is renowned for its lively nightlife.
Saint Florent, known as the “little Saint-Tropez” for its lively and elegant ambience, is a picturesque seaside resort boasting a not-to-be-missed old town during a charter cruise in northern Corsica. Today Saint Florent is an exclusive meeting point of cruisers and bon vivant featuring squares bedecked with oleanders and low houses painted in light colors.
After a walk in the Genoese Citadel, visit the Cathédrale du Nebbio, presenting a Romanesque façade adorned with sculptures of serpents and beasts, or the old Mortella Tower, built by Andrea Doria to protect the coast. And it is almost sunset; spend it sipping an aperitif at Bara Vin Le Mathurin before staying out until the early hours at La Vista, one of the Saint Florent’s busiest clubs.
Corsica on a charter: Saint Florent’s beaches
The Gulf of Saint Florent has large and comfortable sands, like the charming Lotus beach in the desert of Agriate (and the nearby Saleccia), boasting 400 meters of white sand backed by Mediterranean vegetation and transparent waters that can be accessed easily by charter, with which to explore Corsica’s lovely northern shores. Roya, near the marina, is a long strip of sand that is perfect for practicing all kinds of sports, from trekking to diving and boat trips.
Saint Florent is not unlike the French Riviera and a not-to-be-missed destination of a Corsica luxury charter.
