Its a few years since we left the Med, but if you prefer anchoring
Palma de Mallorca is fabulous but there are few anchoring
opportunities anywhere near. Andratx perhaps and a bus ride. There are still some places to anchor
in the Balearics.
- Bastia and Bonifacio
Sardinia - particularly the Madellenas and southern Sardinia.
Italian islands - Elba/Ischia/Ponza/Aeolian/Lipari islands
- Syracusa, a great base from which to explore
Malta/Gozo - very different culture
are always expensive, particularly in the Balearics/French Riviera/Sardinia/mainland Italy
and everywhere will be packed in July and August.
Keep an eye on the weather
, it can be very variable, with frequent Tramontana's and Mistrale's, particularly if you are anywhere near the north coasts of Menorca and Corsica
