It takes you discover the beauties of the Gulf of Ajaccio in a fun and unusual way, by sea kayak with the best inflatable kayak! Trus me, it will be an unforgettable moment in your life. Sea kayaking is the perfect way to discover the hidden treasures of unspoilt coastline, plus activity is available to everyone. While en route to the peninsula of Isolella, south of the Gulf of Ajaccio, and the adventure begins!
I take advantage of this article to give you my advice as to accommodate you and restore you to Ajaccio.
I had already enjoyed Corsica seaside by zodiac motor in Porto Ota. This time, I chose a slightly more sporting activity again, sea kayaking.
After an introduction to navigation by tour guider, I and my friend went into two-seater kayaks. We will follow the coast along the peninsula of Isolella. Kayaking is an endurance sport. We need to find his rhythm. Two-seater kayak, paddle must harmoniously.
This is the escape in a few paddle strokes aboard this lightweight and silent craft. It winds through the rocks without much effort. In fact, the effort is constant but not violent. One can paddle several hours a day without problems. Noiselessly, kayaks cut through the turquoise water of the Mediterranean Sea. We feel in harmony with nature.
At the tip of the peninsula of Isolella, some pink granite islands form a small archipelago called Sette Nave, the seven naves. This is one of the curiosities of the ride.
A legend says that a long time ago seven galleys and crew carriers of the plague were petrified by Saint-Roch invoked by the terrified shepherds. 7 galleys and transformed into rocks facing the waves for eternity.
Sea kayaking is THE good plan to take full advantage of the Corsican coastline. Cors’Aventure also also offers kayak tours over several days. In all cases, do not forget to hydrate yourself regularly and put on sunscreen. The hat is not bad either, right?
If you are lucky as me have optimum weather with blue skies and calm seas when the day promises to be unforgettable. But to stay in the Gulf of Ajaccio to enjoy sea kayaking activity or so many others?
Ajaccio is a very nice city. We felt as soon as we got off the plane. The airport is also very close to town. Barely 1 kilometer traveled by rental car, we drive along the Mediterranean already enjoying a beautiful view of the Gulf and the Napoleonic city.
After a few minutes, we enter a city on a human scale. We park near the Palace of Congress in Ajaccio. Luckily, our apartment is in the heart of the old center.
The atmosphere is rather casual. In Ajaccio, we enjoyed our visit foreign area on the good advice of the Tourist Office of Ajaccio. We will also recommend the Morning Market Place palms.
Where to drink and eat in Ajaccio?
We really enjoyed the atmosphere of Vino del diablo (Devil Wine) in Ajaccio. Located on the port of the Admiralty, the hotel is original because it brings together in a single location restaurant, bar, evening and concert. We shared a wonderful evening with other travelers bloggers here. Rather quiet in the early evening and crowded when the music wakes. Friendly atmosphere and friendly staff. That evening, a good plancha was tested with cold cuts and cheeses made in Corsica, accompanied by a great Corsican wine.
Where to stay in or around Ajaccio?
We found a small apartment ideal for two people in the heart of Ajaccio. This 1-bedroom apartment has the gift of being quiet in the historic center. Besides being charming and beautifully decorated, it was completely renovated recently. The last coat of paint had been spent during our visit. Suddenly, everything is new, impeccably arranged. Beautiful hardwood floors, beautiful kitchen area, bedroom area very nice too. Side bathroom, it is very convenient with its shower area well thought out. Small least for the sink-side chamber located opposite the bed. A nice encounter.
One can reach the hotel by car, by bus but by boat or by helicopter. An upscale hotel with a beautiful Mediterranean garden where you can relax and even its own sandy beach. A real favorite.
And do you know what room of the Sofitel has the largest terrace? This is the 140! And yet a good plan!
Ajaccio was really a nice surprise during our trip in South Corsica and not talking of happiness we have felt starting in the discovery of part of the Corsican coastline by sea kayak. The Island’s beauty has never finished to intrigue and amaze us. So when you go to Corsica?
