The balmy Mediterranean climate, tiny seaside villages, dense forests and hilltop chalets, Corsica is a beach-lover’s paradise.
Head to Bastia, the second-largest town in Corsica and a busy-port for its seaside ambiance. Then drive to Calvi for its quaint small-town appeal, cobblestone streets, and laid-back feel. Sandy beaches and rocky headlands punctuate the west coast all the way down to Ajaccio, which also happens to be Napolean’s birthplace. Even in its southernmost point, Bonifacio enjoys a superbly isolated location, a narrow peninsula of dazzling white limestone creating a townsite unlike any other. Beach life at its best, Corsica’s natural beauty and its cities will leave you astounded.
