Charter a sailboat in Bonifacio… the gateway to Southern Corsica!
As the port of Bonifacio is sheltered from the wind, it offers a convenient and pleasant anchorage. With a capacity of 350 boats, 150 of which are specially reserved, it is ideally positioned, at the southern tip of Corsica, for a day trip to Sardinia or the Lavezzi Islands. Decorated with limestone cliffs and overlooked by the citadel, your sailboat charter in Bonifacio will remain engraved in your memories.
In a paradisiacal setting, sail from city to city to discover the wonders that are sheltered there and enjoy dreamy anchorages. From land to the sea, the wild landscapes of Corsica will dazzle you with their beauty.
We have noted below some unmissable day trips and activities for your sailboat charter in Bonifacio:
1. Stroll along the port of Bonifacio
With its four quays, the port of Bonifacio will satisfy all visitors! In the centre, you will find the main harbour office, a tourist information office, a large children's playground, boats for sea trips and you’ll get to see some of the largest yachts in the world!
On the south side, the Comparetti quay is the liveliest quay in the city... There are many shops, bars and restaurants with terraces that make you feel like you’re on board a ship! The Comparetti quay is extended by the Banda del Ferro quay. It is home to the most beautiful yachts and sailboats that are moored "cul à quai" just metres away from you! Pro tip: take a stroll in the evening, nothing beats golden hour lighting!
The North Quay, a little quieter and always sunny, is home to a hotel, shop and is ideal for water sports activities. From here, you’ll have a breath-taking view of the citadel! Don't hesitate to walk to the ‘Maison des Pêcheurs’ or Fishermen's House.
2. Sardinia day trip!
Take full advantage of your sailboat charter in Bonifacio by visiting its neighbour, Sardinia … only six-and-a-half miles away! Discover the Sardinian culture by sailing to Santa-Teresa di Gallura in less than an hour!
Santa Teresa di Gallura is the closest point of Sardinia to Corsica. Formerly a Roman city, the small town has become a tourist resort. A visit of the old town, a stroll on Thursdays to the farmers’ market, or perhaps a dive in crystal-clear waters... it all sounds so tempting!
3. Pertusato lighthouse
This is a magnificent walk of about 90 minutes not to be missed during your sailboat charter in Bonifacio. Starting from the citadel, climb the rocky hills to reach the end of the strait. Along the way, you’ll enjoy a multi-sensory experience: the smell of the scrubland, the salty sea air, the heat and wind on your skin, the sound of the waves and the surf below... And above all, the breath-taking and splendid views in this wild and unspoilt nature. Upon arrival at the lighthouse, the panorama is splendid of both the horizon and of Bonifacio itself. A nice surprise awaits you if you’re up for it: a small beach below, magnificent and glittering, which promises refreshment and relaxation before setting off again.
