|The undercut cliffs of Bonifacio were one of the most spectacular|
sights we’ve experienced in the Mediterranean.
|The citadel resisted all invaders until with the population decimated by the plague i|
n 1528 a combined French/Turkish force finally captured the town in 1554.
|Corscia’s west coast is fantastic. Unfortunately persistent strong winds |
kept us from sailing it but we did get to see some of it from the land side.
|Just one of the little Corsican mountain villages we drove through|
|Marc enjoy yet another ‘Look at that view’ stop.|
|Corsica’s mountain ranges are spell bounding|
|A Fixer upper we found in the little mountain town of Quenza. It was all |
deserted and just waiting for someone wanting to take on a little renovation job.
|Marc with his desert for one. After the wild boar what was he thinking.|
Cost per night for our 43 foot (13.2m) yacht – 44.00 Euro (including VAT and water but no power available during our stay due to upgrades. WiFi was not provided but available in a couple of the restaurants and bars along the waterfront) Note: This was a 10% discounted price due to no power.
Marina pontoons near the head of the harbour are incredibly tight and we were stumped how some yachts had managed to get into their berths and doubted they would be able to get out without moving other boats first. In any wind at all it would be a nightmare. Further down the harbour yachts moor bow or stern to the town wall while near the ferry terminal a small number of alongside positions are available. All berths are open to the public with no security.
