Suggested 1-week itinerary from Portisco
DAY 1 : Embark at Portisco on the jet set Costa Smeralda ("Emerald Coast"), an area buzzing with designer shopping, piazzas and stunning views.
DAY 2 : Cannigione (15nm). A sheltered harbour with good seafood restaurants.bIf you keep going along the Caprera coast, the very deep bay of Porto Palma offers the best sheltered free mooring in the area. Here you can safely stay the night whatever the wind.
DAY 3 : Visit a couple of small bays in S.Stefano and on the mainland, then sail to La Maddalena harbour on the main island of the Archipelago. La Maddelena (6nm) is a traditional fishing harbour, picturesque and bustling, but sometimes in peak season the small harbour is very crowded, so you may have to overnight in Palau on the mainland.
DAY 4 : Lavezzi (15nm) is a marine park with fabulous snorkelling and diving.
DAY 5 : Bonifacio (21nm) is on the south coast of Corsica. A dramatic entrance through the cliffs opens into a beautiful bay with anchorages and moorings on the town quay.
DAY 6 : Porto Massimo (16nm) A small harbour on the north eastern coast of La Maddelena.
DAY 7 : Return to Portisco (18nm).
