Tuscan Archipelago - Corsica and Sardinia

Start your sailing holiday from Portovenere or S.Vincenzo on the west coast of Italy and explore the enchanting Tuscan islands. This is a popular sailing holiday destination and Elba, the largest and most beautiful island in the archipelago, has an indented coastline sheltering many attractive harbours and anchorages.

You may end up staying longer than you planned on your yacht charter holiday just exploring the bays and harbours on Elba, seduced by the charm and beauty of this island. However don't miss the other islands of the Tuscan archipelago, including Gorgona, Capraia, Montecristo, Giglio and Giannutri.

The islands form a convenient stepping stones between the Tuscan coastline and Corsica and Saardinia, allowing you to combine the flavours of Italy and France on your sailing holiday. Many chance to stop in heartbreaking beaches with a ocean bottom rich of fishes or swimming in crystal clear water. The most popular beaches are situated in the south between Bonifacio and Portovecchio (Palombaccia and Santa Giulia beaches). We suggest to visit Santa Manza and Rondinara. The hinterland, instead, offers high mountains (Girolata), with the possibility of birds watching (eaglets, hawks, sea crows).

The optimal cruise continue until the Bocche di Bonifacio. From this point, for few days, you can sail between the fabulous Bocche di Bonifacio's islands: Lavezzi, Cavallo, Budelli, Spargi, La Maddalena; touching the Costa Smeralda bays and visiting Bonifacio with its amazing white cliff and its port that reminds a fjord.
