Mini-cruise to Corsica
For those wishing to discover the most delightful places in the Corsican Archipelago, we suggest this mini-cruise using our fast motorboats for a maximum of 12 guests. Crossing the Straits of Bonifacio is always a tremendous experience, and often made more so by the chance to see dolphins and on rare occasions even whales.
The trip leaves the harbour at Isola Rossa, passes along the North coast of Gallura as far as Capo Testa and then crosses the Straits of Bonifacio to arrive at the island of Lavezzi where there will be a stop for a walk around the island, a swim, or just to relax on the beach. The journey then continues North, passing by the Isola di Cavallo as far as Punta Sperone and stopping at the famous stretch of sand that is Isola Piana for another swim. After having had a light lunch aboard prepared by the Hotel, we set sail for the town of Bonifacio, perched on the high limestone cliffs for a visit to the historic old town centre. In the late afternoon after a snack offered by the crew, we return to the Hotel

During the first stop there will be a chance to visit the Nuraghe Maiori, a significant archaeological site just outside the town of Tempio Pausania. From there we take a pleasant stroll through the alleyways of the old town populated by 17th century churches and typical stone houses. Next we move on to Aggius, full of 19th century Gallura traditions and the culture of the “Stazzi”. Here we stop to enjoy the packet lunch prepared by the Hotel in a lovely natural setting. Aggius is home to the biggest and best ethnographic museum in the whole of Sardinia, the MEOC; inside you can see the textile workshop where ladies of the town work on looms preparing prized rugs and carpets according to ancient traditions. The day concludes with a guided visit to the Banditry Museum, the only one in Italy and a stop at the “Valley of the Moon” for a tasting of typical local products.
The tour lasts around 7 hours.
