REGION HIGHLIGHTS

Hidden Gem: Cascades de Polischellu

Close to the Bravella Massif, the Cascades de Polischellu are crystal clear waterfalls, creating sparkling emerald pools. One of the most scenic sites in Corsica and perfect for a picnic!

Old Favourite: Ajaccio

The largest city in Corsica, and the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte. Enjoy a stroll along the palm tree lined seafront or simply wander through the colourful alleyways next to the Citadelle.

Local Cuisine: Corsican honey

Corsica has many unique tasting and pungent honeys. Try the different varieties produced each season and also Maquis honey which is slightly darker in colour but every bit as tasty.

Not to be missed is a visit to one of Corsica's colourful street markets. Most of the main towns have them and you'll be amazed at - and no doubt tempted by - the rich variety of produce!

This fantastic guitar festival has in the past attracted the likes of Joe Cocker, Robert Plant and Tom Jones. Recently Jeff Beck performed along with a variety of other musical performers. Definitely not to be missed!

Beaches & Lakes: Saleccia Beach

Take a boat trip to Saleccia beach on the island's north west coast. This unspoilt, UNESCO-protected site was used in the Second World War movie the Longest Day and is spectacular.

YOUR CORSICA QUESTIONS ANSWERED

Where is Corsica?

While it would appear on a map that the island of Corsica is closest to Italy, it is a political territory belonging to France. Situated south west from mainland France and just above the Italian island of Sardinia, Corsica is the fourth largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. 

What's the weather like in Corsica?

The best time to visit Corsica is during the summer months between May and September. The weather at this time is reliably warm, while the days are longer and sunnier. If you want to avoid the heat of July and August, particularly if you plan on hiking the mountains, May, June and September sees cooler weather and less crowds. 

What is the capital of Corsica?

The regional capital of Corsica is Ajaccio, which is well worth a trip to the west side of the island when staying on our parks to the east. As the island's largest city, Ajaccio boasts varied architecture, elegant squares and inviting cafés. Fans of sophisticated harbours such as the Côte d'Azur will relish the chance to explore the city's harbour front while watching the rich and famous come and go on their yachts. Historians will recognise Ajaccio as the birthplace of Napoleon, France's first emperor and military leader.

Where are the best beaches to visit in Corsica?

With 1000km of coastline and 200 beaches to choose from, it can be appealing to narrow your search when it comes to finding the best sands on the island. Corsica's diverse landscape also extends to its beaches, with a wide range of hidden bays, deserted coves, pebble and great surf to be found. We would recommend the beaches of the south, such as wind-protected Rondinara, while Palombaggia beach near the town of Porto-Vecchio is one of the most renowned beaches on the island - and just under an hour's drive from our Sole di Sari park.
