It is not for nothing that Corsica is nicknamed the Island of Beauty! In the south of France, in the heart of the Mediterranean, Corsica enchants us with every visit. This mountainous island offers a rare natural heritage, a strong identity and an authentic culture, without forgetting a crystal clear sea. We go there to sail, sailboat, swim, dive, surf, hike... We meditate in front of the sumptuous beauty of the landscapes. We indulge in idleness without which Corsica cannot really be appreciated. We take the time for an aperitif, a meal of Corsican delicacies that goes on from palaver to tasting. A miniature continent, Corsica offers a wide variety of landscapes and its exoticism and sunshine all year round. Wild and welcoming at the same time, preserved but open, dignified and voluptuous, soft and rough, Corsica is unique and generates as many strong emotions as surprises to its visitors. Among the must-see places on the island selected by your travel guide are the beaches of Porto-Vecchio, Cape Corsica and Calvi, Bastia and Bonifacio, the citadel of Corte, the museum of Aléria and its archaeological site. The magnificent Bavella massif, for its part, attracts hikers and climbers. You must visit the Palais Fesch, the Fine Arts Museum ofAjaccio, the Lavazzi Islands nature reserve, without forgetting to go with your nose to the wind, to stop over in the villages, to meet the producers of jams, charcuterie or Corsican cheeses recommended by your favourite guide. And why not attend a workshop to discover essential oils or learn the Corsican language... Follow the Corsica guide to discover this unforgettable destination

What to visit Corsica?

When to go to Corsica?

Corsica can be visited all year round. With its privileged Mediterranean climate, Corsica offers sunny days suitable for walks and visits even in winter. In January/February, you have the choice: enjoy sea urchins on the beach, swim in water at an average temperature of 14°C or enjoy the snow in one of its ski resorts (the island is mountainous, remember). Those who are not so keen will wait for the spring when the sea water rises to 20°C and reaches 27°C in the summer. The island boasts 59 days of sunshine in summer! The tourist influx is then at its peak on the coast, in the creeks, on the hiking trails, in the cultural sites... During the summer months, the coastal towns benefit from a sea breeze that reduces the feeling of heat and refreshes the atmosphere. And the mountains are never far away with their more temperate nights. The tourist offers are more numerous in summer and Air Corsica which connects all the French regions breaks the prices. Those who have the choice will however prefer the less busy, less hot and calmer shoulder seasons. You can enjoy the beach and swimming until the end of October. And don't miss the chestnut fair in Bocognano (December).
