Feel like a real explorer with this boat tour of the Sanguinaires islands. Be enchanted by the crystal blue waters and spectacular sunset as it casts the sky in deep red tones.
The Sanguinaires Islands were formed by a volcano and today are home to exotic species of plants and animals. The 4 Sanguinaires Islands are a unique space of natural beauty on the Corsican coast, and on this trip you can explore them and even bathe in their pristine waters.
After gathering at the meeting point, we will climb aboard the boat to take us to the famous archipelago. From the port of Porticcio, you will already spot our first stop on the horizon - the coast of Ajaccio. We will moor at the city’s waterfront to explore the bustling maritime life of Napoleon Bonaparte’s birthplace.
We will visit the chapel of the Greeks, the Santa María Magdalena de Pazzis Cemetery, and the citadel. You will feel the spirit of the Emperor and the echoes of the past as you tour the narrow streets of the historic center.
Before docking at Mezzumare (the largest island), you can enjoy the views of the Parata Point hill peninsula and its tower which watches out over the coast from the highest point. Once on the island, you will have free time to take a dip and discover the oldest areas such as the ruins of Lazareto.
If you are looking for an unusual experience, do not miss the flower-lined walkways which are home to rare animals. This is a treat for your senses which you will remember forever.
Around 5:30 pm we will return to Porticcio and there we will finish our maritime adventure.
If you prefer, you can reserve the cruise around the Sanguinaires Islands which departs from Ajaccio.
