Porto Vecchio

Officially the best beaches in the world.

World's Best Beaches

Today you’ll anchor your charter yacht off Porto Vecchio, one of the Top Ten beaches in the world. Wait! Make that two. Because Porto Vecchio is a ten-minute sail from both Palombaggia Plage and Rondinara Plage. Both are snow white, silky sandy, postcard beautiful. Both rank among the world’s finest beaches. Google them if you dare.

Your Guide to Porto Vecchio

Fashion. History. Beaches.

You’ll want to marry Palombaggia Plage. It appears stolen from St Lucia. Smooth boulders are the venue for soft snorkels and cliff jumps. Electricity only recently reached this beach. It now powers the fridge in the boho beach bar that sells Calippos and Corsican rosé. Want to try paddleboarding or windsurfing on your Porto Vecchio yacht charter? Through summer the average water temperature never dips below 22°C (72°F).

Dreamy Beaches. Lively Ambience.

Rondinara Plage is the beach a child would draw. It’s a perfect letter ‘C’ of curvaceous sand. With a circle of turquoise water in the middle. Hotels and villas are prohibited in this protected area. So at dawn and dusk the beach is 100% yours. The best view of Rondinara Plage? Fire up your charter yacht’s drone for an overhead shot. The resulting Instagram will annoy the hell out of friends back home.

A Sophisticated Stop-off

The natural harbour of Porto Vecchio is historically beautiful. It was built by Romans, enlarged by Genoese, then enlivened by Italians selling pizzas, prosecco and gelato. (Although Corsica is technically French, Paris is a long way away.) A rainbow scatter of markets, churches and restaurants surrounds Porto Vecchio’s yacht marina. While ancient shepherd’s trails lead into Corsica’s wild interior. A Y.CO yacht charter guide can lead your group to waterfalls and rapids. Or on a nature trip to spot mouflon, osprey, wild boar and red deer.
