7 Day Itinerary - From Bonifacio in southern Corsica and Sardinia
Welcome to Bonifacio! Located at the southern tip of Corsica is the most visited city of Corsica and for good reason.
The old town, built on an immense limestone cliffs overlooking nearly 70 meters tall narrow sea passage of Bonifacio. With its tall buildings and crowded streets, it has many treasures to discover. First night on board.
11 NM Piantarella bay and Lavezzi Islands.
Faced with the Lavezzi islands Piantarella is a real lagoon with its beautiful sandy beach especially popular spot for its kite surfing and windsurfing. In some places the water is very low and allows you to link, feet in the water, the island of Piana and the bank. Crystalline turquoise waters have nothing to envy to those of the Caribbean!
Heading to the Lavezzi Islands, nature reserve since 1982, an archipelago of small islands and granite reefs. Anchor at the Cala Lazzarina where you can use your snorkel to explore the seabed or relax on the beautiful sandy beaches or even walk along the few roads available. The fauna and flora of these islands are exceptional and it is a must stop!
12 NM The Gulf of Sant'Amanza.
Sailing to the Gulf Sant'Amanza, one of the most beautiful on the island. It has a unique charm, surrounded by its limestone cliffs and granite rocks!
It is also the ideal place for windsurfers, with its small beaches all sheltered from the winds!
The sunsets are beautiful at... Sant'Amanza.
10 NM The Bays of Santa Giulia and Rondinara.
These sleepy bays, worthy of the most beautiful postcards are among the most beautiful sites of Corsica not to be missed.. The Bay of Santa Giulia, with its rocks, crystal clear water and fine white sand is so beautiful.
Mooring buoys are available for boats. Further south, Rondinara Bay natural bay sheltered from strong currents, reveals a turquoise of exceptional quality blue sea.
24 NM Heading Islands Budelli then Razzoli and La Maddalena.
The Isle of Budelli is part of the National Park of La Maddalena.

Palau is one of the most famous locations in northern Sardinia.
In summer, the city comes alive in a special way along the harbor and along the main street, Via Nazionale, with a concentration of shops and small restaurants of typical Sardinian cuisine.
