It is well known as the Island of Beauty! In the south of France, in the heart of the Mediterranean, Corsica enchants us. This mountain island offers a rare natural heritage, a strong identity and an authentic culture, not to mention a crystal clear sea. We go there to sail, chat, swim, dive, surf, hike.... We enjoy the landscapes and indulge in idleness without which Corsica cannot really appreciate itself. We take the time for an aperitif and a meal of local delicacies that continues. A miniature continent, Corsica offers its exoticism just a stone's throw from the metropolis. South Corsica, in the southwest of the island, is approached by Bonifacio built on a cliffside, on a narrow promontory. Bonifacio with its port is the most touristic city on the island. To the south of the island still, the citadel of Porto-Vecchio, a city of salt with salt and salt still in operation, is the great tourist centre of Southern Corsica with its old town, its port and its beaches. You will not miss Ajaccio, Napoleon's birthplace, an old Genoese town where you can visit prestigious museums and buy Corsican products on the market. In the heart of the Gulf of Valinco, Propriano, a small marina and fishing port, and at the same time a seaside resort at the gates of the maquis, does not lack charm. Finally, in the north of South Corsica, on the west coast, the romantic Calanques de Piana, all made of red/orange granite with eroded rocks that create sculptures, is well worth being classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site

When to go to Corse-Du-Sud?

When to go to South Corsica? If the crowd of tourists annoys you, avoid the very tourist season, from early July to late August. Especially since the climate in Corsica is pleasant from April to November, and the great sunny weather is guaranteed from May-June to mid-September. A few nuances, however. It is generally warmer at Cap Corse than at Bonifacio. The air is always cooler in the mountains, at least from 500 m above sea level, than on the coast. Provide a small wool in the interior of the country. Beware of brief but violent storms that break out in the interior often in the summer, causing sometimes devastating floods and violent rivers. Nevertheless, rains are rare with barely fifty days of rain per year. Sometimes the wind blows very strong. Don't forget that in spring, the scrubland is in bloom. An enchantment. In autumn, they are flamboyant colours in the forest and chestnuts and mushrooms to pick. Precious indication: the sea temperature (on the coasts) is on average 15 °C in winter and 25 °C in summer.
