We start with four tips. Four exactly like the coasts of Corsica: north, south, east and west. Each one different from the other, and suitable for a different type of holiday.

  • North coast. The ideal would be to visit it in five days, following an itinerary that starts from Calvi and passing through Ile-Rousse, the desert of the Agriates and Saint Florent reaches as far as Bastia. The north coast of Corsica is recommended for those who want to move a lot, see different places and sometimes unexpected, immerse themselves in nature and in the ancient charm of the cities that arise here.
  • South coast. Along the south coast of Corsica, it’s absolutely the sea to be the master. Two of the most popular destinations are Bonifacio and Porto Vecchio, cities famous for their beaches (among the most beautiful in Corsica) and for the many things to see. If your intention is to enjoy a holiday with the whole family, the south coast of Corsica is the right one for you, both for the beaches and for the numerous services.
