The Corsican island waters are part of a vast network of nature reserves, so scuba diving and marine enthusiasts will find plenty to delight in here.
The island of Corsica, due to its beauty and historical fame, attracts many visitors. But it is the closed bays, which can only be reached by yacht, that are especially good.
We have compiled for you a list of the 5 most beautiful anchorages in Corsica.
1. Girolata Bay.
Closed bay located on the western Corsica coastwell protected from east and west winds. You can easily anchor in the sandy shallow waters. You will not be able to get closer to the beach on a yacht due to the rocky bottom, on which the anchor will not be fixed.
The coast will enchant you with its beauty. Terracotta white cliffs that frame the clear blue sea will take you a million photos.
This place is a paradise for diving enthusiasts. The marine life here is amazing and varied.
And most importantly, it is comfortable and calm here even in the highest season. The thing is that there is a more promoted anchorage nearby.
2. Bay of Pinarella.
This bay is very popular with yachtsmen due to its good anchoring in shallow sandy waters.
You just need to try not to drop anchor in the Poseidonia colony when mooring.
The bay of Pinarellu Bay is sheltered from the winds from northwest to southerly, and is especially suitable for recreation during the strong mistral.
This place is ideal for a beach holiday. The beach here is small, but very cozy.
According to the reviews of the yachtsmen who have visited here, it is worth visiting the local restaurants, where the food is very tasty.
If you get bored of just "beaching", you can see local sights - for example, the chapel Sainte barbe.
3. Cala Lazarina.
This anchorage is located on the Lavezzi Islands in southern Corsica, a few miles offshore.
This place is very well protected from the winds, the coastal sandy shallow water perfectly holds the anchor.
And the coastal rocks, over which the sea and the wind have worked carefully, resemble a picture from the Jurassic period, they look so fantastic.
For relaxation, you can choose one of two magnificent beaches with white sand and crystal clear waters.
This place is very popular with yachtsmen, so in the high season it is quite crowded and expensive. And during the low season or early in the morning and late in the evening, you can enjoy this mystically beautiful place without strangers.
4. Salechia anchorage.
Salechia Beach is a small paradise with white sand and crystal clear azure water. On the rocky slopes there are centuries-old trees.
This place, which has received a huge amount of rave reviews from visiting sailors, is located in the northern part of Corsica and is well protected from the south-westerly and easterly winds.
The coastal sandy zone is not very shallow - up to 5m deep, it holds the anchor well. You can swim in perfectly clear water right at the parking lot.
Of course, it gets crowded during the high season. Therefore, if you want not to interfere with enjoying the magnificent nature at the Salechia anchorage, you need to think about what time to come here to relax.
Since it is rather difficult to get to this place by land, most vacationers arrive by means of tours. This means that no one will bother you here early in the morning and late in the evening.
According to yachtsmen, Salechia beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Corsica, a real anchor paradise.
5. Figuera Bay.
The bay is located in the southwest of Corsica, and its views are so beautiful that it will seem unreal to you, as if you are looking at a promotional postcard.
Protected from the southern winds, it is fully exposed to the mistral, libeccio, gregal and tramontana. We advise you not to enter the bay at the same time as these pranksters.
The seabed here has both sandy and rocky areas. But you can easily find a place for a safe anchorage.
Figuera Bay will amaze you with its landscape: dense vegetation descends from the mountains directly to the purest water. And the sunsets are fantastic!
