Step Aboard FORTUNA in Stunning Sardinia!

Make your summer yacht charter Sardinia the best yet with a trip to La Maddalena Archipelago, set in between Southern Corsica and Northern Sardinia. This magical national park is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt parts of Sardinia. The several beaches and coves of the archipelago are famous for their crystal clear waters. Cala Corsara is considered one of the bests; it is located in the isle of Spargi and famous for its fine white beach and clear blue sea. The Spiaggia Rosa (the pink beach), on the isle of Budelli, is the most delightful of the beaches, boasting pretty pink sand made from tiny broken shells and marine life.Screen-Shot-2015-04-17-at-08.26.54

Ile de Porquerolles – A Hidden Paradise

One of my favourite places on the French Riviera is the lesser known Ile de Porquerolles where the crystal clear waters, golden sand and dream-like bays are more akin to somewhere found in the tropics.  This sensational paradise is the antidote to the hustle and bustle of St Tropez – a tranquil haven in which to relax and unwind whilst enjoying the stunning scenery. Together with the island of Port-Cros and île du Levant, Porquerolles belongs to the îles d’Hyères Archipelago, also knows as the îles d’or (Golden Islands). The biggest of the three islands of the archipelago, Porquerolles is shaped like a croissant and is seven kilometers long by three kilometers wide.
