Why go to Corsica

Holidays in Corsica have all the right ingredients for a delightful break: picture-perfect beaches, sunny summer days, rugged mountains, ancient villages, vibrant cities, a tasty food scene, and enough after-hours fun to get any night owl hooting with excitement.

Part of France, the island sits just to the north of the Italian island of Sardinia, surrounded by the rich blue Mediterranean Sea...

Corsica offers the same pleasures that travellers have come to know and love in France - food, wine, and culture, but with a uniquely Corsican twist. While it may be part of France, Corsica has a life, spirit, and soul (and language) all of its own.

See the birthplace of French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte in capital Ajaccio; visit medieval Bonifacio on the south coast; hear the chatter of the rigging at harbour town Bastia; or simply flop onto the sands of the island's dazzling beaches: however you spend your Corsica holidays, they are sure to leave you with lasting memories.

The closest Mediterranean island to the UK, flights to Corsica take only two hours. Choice may be a bit limited, as this island jewel has managed to hide its luminous shine from the UK mass market - for the moment. Hotels and self-catering accommodation are plentiful, though. 

The most popular resorts for beach lovers are Porto Vecchio, home to renowned Palombaggia Beach, and those around Bastia, Calvi, Ajaccio, and Bonifacio. However, fantastic beaches circle the island, meaning you will be close to beaches, of both the crowded and isolated varieties wherever you spend your holidays in Corsica. As much of the island's beauty is hidden away, car hire in Corsica is also an excellent idea.
