West Coast of Corsica Part 1.

Broker Cordy gives an insight into her time working onboard Megayachts

One of my favorite places to cruise when I worked onboard mega yachts (Giga yachts weren’t around then!) was the stunning West coastline of Corsica. I was fortunate to work for a wonderful English family who adored this area, so it is where we spent the majority of the summer. On a displacement yacht cruising at around 12knots, the journey from Cannes to St Florent is around 10 hours which can normally be achieved overnight. So, if you are on the French Riviera and fancy something a little different, why not enjoy a wonderful dinner on board anchored at the Iles des Lerins, Cannes, and then start your journey after this. Be sure to ask the crew to wake you up at dawn to dolphin watch! One of the most amazing experiences at sea.

Arriving in St Florent is stunning, this pretty little fishing port has a host of local restaurants and bars huddled around the marina. Restaurant de l’Europe and Le Grill are perfect places to sit in the sun and watch the world go by!

Having relaxed in the sun, head one street back to the old town full of independent shops selling local charcuterie and souvenirs. Keep heading up and you will reach the citadel, steps from the citadel car park lead down to a small beach. The stunning cathedral de Nebbio is found on the other side of the town on the Chemin de la Cathedrale and is most definitely worth a visit.

For the more energetic persons amongst your group, Le Roya Beach can be found to the southeast of the town offering water sports including windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, jet skis and scuba diving! There really is something for everyone!

Heading west from St Florent is the beautiful town of Calvi. Coming into port you have an incredible view of the citadel, once docked, it is definitely worth climbing up the cobbled streets for breathtaking panoramic views of your surroundings. There are some great restaurants up here as well as the voguish Chez Tao bar!

Once you have soaked up the incredible views, wander around the shops through the old cobbled streets of the town. The marché de l’Orée des Pins is full of local charcuterie, grapes, cheeses, and amazing pastries!

Around the corner, further West from Calvi is possibly the most beautiful spot in the Med! Girolata is a fortified bay at the south of the Scandola Nature Reserve. The setting is spectacular, with the village perched on the peninsula and surrounded by the sea and the famous red rock mountains of this area.  This bay is a wonderful place to anchor and swim ashore to the beautiful beach.

Further south in the Scandola National Park is the bay of Porto where you can find a pretty little village and see more of the stunning Calanques de Piana rock formations.

Having enjoyed the National Park, further south again you will find Ajaccio, famous for being the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte! You can visit the Maison Bonaparte, now a national museum, the ancestral home of the Bonaparte family, to discover more about his life. Ajaccio’s charming old town is a great place to amble and enjoy the beautiful architectural features and stunning landmarks such as the Cathedrale Notre-Dame-de-l’Assomption.

The pretty port of Ajaccio is adorned with bars and restaurants serving seafood and pizzas. The perfect place to soak up the atmosphere and admire the view!

Boatbookings on M/Y SUPERTOY

Broker Cordy (4th from the right below) had the pleasure of a night cruise and dinner aboard SUPERTOY in July 2019, and was astounded by not only the yacht but also the devoted, diligent crew.


The Crew

Based in the South of France, Captain John (above) and his team have been together for over 6 years and they work together like a well-oiled machine. The service is attentive but discreet and totally on point.

Captain John (the middle gentleman) loves to take clients to anchor. In his own words, ‘That’s the idea of being on a boat, right?!’ So we were treated to a starlit dinner at anchor between the Cannes islands! There really is nothing more special than spending time on the water away from your day to day life and feeling like you have rejuvenated.


Service and Food

Chef Gary’s food is highly accomplished, hostess Edina is very professional and effortlessly ensured that we wanted for nothing during our time on board.

SUPERTOY is surprisingly spacious and offers incredible value for money. Her best feature is her huge flybridge area complete with bar and vast sunbathing pads.

Captain John also helms the boat from up here so it’s the perfect area to get to know the crew whilst cruising along the French Riviera.

Her aft deck table very comfortably seats all 10 guests and her interior volume is incomparable to her contemporaries.

We wholeheartedly recommend the fabulous SUPTERTOY. With some high season availability remaining, please contact Cordy to book your charter on board for summer 2019!
