Combine the pleasure of cycling with the magic of the sea : discover the island of Corsica in complete tranquility with privileged access to wild beaches and the most secret coves.
The island of beauty can be viewed in all its splendour from the sea, and when you include that with our bike rides, this really is a treat not to be missed.
Your day by day program
Arrive in Ajaccio and board the catamaran from 6 pm. Settle into your cabin before relaxing with a welcome drink.
Dinner and overnight on board, at anchor or in the port.
Today we set sail to Cacalu, also called Anse de Cacao, a small bay north of Capo di Muro (1h30 navigation). With its rich and beautiful marine landscape, this is an ideal place for a swim.
It's time to get on the bikes and ride towards Propriano (40 km), a coastal town surrounded by sandy beaches, turquoise waters which contrast dramatically with the green maquis scrub. the town is situated within one of the most typical regions of Corsica conducive to the discovery of gastronomy, culture, heritage and wine.
From Propriano, you can hop back on the catamaran or continue by bike (20 km) to Cala di Conca, a small beach away from civilization, surrounded by beautiful wild vegetation.
In Cala di Conca everyone will regroup on the catamaran for dinner and overnight at anchor.
Riding : about 40 or 60 km
Feeling refreshed after a peaceful night on board the boat, we will
jump back onto our bikes to ride to Roccapina beach (35 km.). This
ride will take you into the real wilds of Corsica. Discover this superb
beach, guarded by the Lion of Roccapina (a rock resembling a lion).
Celebrate the end of the ride with a swim in the turquoise waters,
surrounded by pink granite rocks and the verdant maquis scrub.
After a fabulous day, we will set sail late afternoon to reach the
Fazziolu Islands near Bonifacio, 2h30 navigation.
Dinner and overnight at anchor.
Riding : about 35 km
From one set of islets to another, we set sail for the Lavezzi
Islands, 10 km southeast of Bonifacio (1h30 navigation).
As an archipelago of 23 granite islets, surrounded by
turquoise waters, this is one of the most beautiful spots in
the Mediterranean. The beaches are accessible only by
boat, where you can discover an unforgettable aquatic
fauna. Magic moments guaranteed! We will then sail to
Bonifacio, from where you can ride your bike to discover
the beauty of the surroundings (55 km). We will spend the
night in Bonifacio. This extraordinary town is perched
precariously on a limestone cliff. Enjoy the lively nightlife in
the fascinating old town, have a drink in a bar, or visit the
many artisan shops.
Dinner and overnight at anchor or in the port.
Riding : 55 km
Another fantastic day awaits as we set sail along the east coast to reach Porto-Vecchio. From here we will ride a
loop of about 25 km, so that you can visit the most famous coves and beaches of southern Corsica. We will then
return to Bonifacio where we will continue cycling to
the Gulf of Ventilegne (15 km). Arriving at Ventilegne,
we will hop back onto the boat to sail towards Tizzano,
an adorable little village which is nestled between the
rocks. The crystal-clear waters will be difficult to resist,
so enjoy a long refreshing swim.
Dinner and overnight at anchor.
Riding : about 40 km
This morning we set sail to the wild beach of Cala d'Orzu
(1h30 navigation). As an option, you could order your
lunch from the very well known beach hut “Chez Francis”.
Finish this fabulous day with a cycle ride from Campomoro,
an authentic charming village in the middle of nowhere.
The loop of 40 km will allow us to discover the different
landscapes of the west coast of southern Corsica. It may
also be possible to visit the Genoese tower and the small
museum. After a hot and sweaty but hugely satisfying ride,
might you be tempted by another refreshing swim?
Dinner and overnight at anchor.
Riding : 40 km
We set sail once more for the Iles Sanguinaires (2h00 navigation). Historically, they are called the Sanguinairesn islands, not for their red colour at sunset, but because makeshift settlements welcomed coral fishermen nicknamed "sanguinari" (the people with black blood), returning from Africa and under quarantine. Characterized by their austere and hostile appearance, they are a classified maritime site, a haven for seabird species, a reserve for a rich flora of rare and endemic species. At the tip of the island, enjoy an incomparable view of the gulf of Ajaccio. The catamaran will take you to the peninsula of Isolella, with its subtle, wild and natural charm. From Isolella there is a great ride towards Ajaccio (35 km).
Dinner and night on board at the dock. Take a stroll at night around the quaint yet vibrant streets of Ajaccio, a
town that oozes the heat and culture of the south.
Riding : about 35 km
After a fabulous week of sailing, superb cycle rides, refreshing swims in azure waters, stunning views of the
Corsican coast, it is time to disembark at 9am, following a last breakfast. This is surely a trip to remember!
