Corsica

Captain Marcel van den Houdt, of 67.5mIcon, reveals a pristine spot for a beach set-up in Corsica

My favourite cruising area is around Corsica – going into Bonifacio with a boat like this is amazing but the best part is the beaches. One of my top

spots is the Golfe de Roccapina, a deep bay with a sandy bottom so you can anchor close to the beach. Don’t visit with the wind blowing from the west or south, however, as you are not sheltered.

We found it by chance, as we usually anchor and then use the tender to find more secluded spots. We cruise there overnight so when the guests wake up the crew will have set up the beach with a gazebo, seats and a drinks cooler. The SeaBobs and jet skis will also be ready for more active guests. It’s a great place to enjoy Corsica’s white sands and crystal clear water.
