Must-sees in Corsica - What to do, what to see, what to visit?

Bastia:

Main gateway to Corsica by sea, Bastia is the most important town in the north of the island. Located opposite the island of Elba, the city has always had its eyes turned to the sea.

Strolling through its narrow streets, Bastia reveals itself in an authenticity unlike any other! Its relief arrangement, its colorful facades, its art of living and its architecture make it a city full of charm with the allures of Genoese cities. From the old town to the Citadel, passing through the Romieu Garden and its Old Port, discover this beautiful city-dweller, essential to visit in all seasons.

Bonifacio:

In the far south of Corsica, the beautiful Bonifacio looks like a postcard city. Picturesque and fortified town perched on high chalky cliffs sculpted by the spray of the sea. At its feet: a cove provides perfect anchorage for boats.

The Bonifacio site is truly unique. Take a look around at sunset: the colors are magnificent. The walk from the Saint-Roch pass to the Pertusato lighthouse is superb. Also, do not hesitate to go on excursions to the cliffs, creeks and sea caves.

Calvi:

Calvi corresponds to the image of the perfect postcard of the Mediterranean: a multitude of colorful buildings and a crescent of silver sand bordered by pine trees that extends as far as the eye can see. All of this is crowned by cobbled streets that go up to the city’s main attraction, its Genoese citadel.

A visit to the citadel of Calvi is one of the real attractions of northern Corsica. Take the cobbled streets and alleys leading to the town's cathedral, from where you can admire the best views of Calvi bay.

Cap Corse:

Cap Corse, north of Bastia, is one of the most beautiful parts of the island. Corsicans call it "the Isula di l'isula", in other words "the island of the island". It brings together many municipalities: Nonza, Canari, Luri, Pino, Brando ... In the eastern part, valleys open out gently onto the sea; on the western side, the mountain falls violently into the Mediterranean.

Between walks in the mountains in search of small postcard villages and lazing on the pretty beaches of the coast, Cap Corse has something to keep you occupied during your holidays, without forgetting its delicious specialties, notably its many wines and local specialties.

Corte:

Right in the center of Corsica, in the mountains, equidistant from Ajaccio and Bastia, Corte is in many ways the sentinel of the Corsican soul, its historic and cultural capital.

Built in the hollow of a beautiful natural amphitheater, it surprises with its narrow citadel perched on its rocky peak. The surroundings of Corte are also very nice: a crown of mountains is interspersed with torrents with clear, impetuous and transparent waters. You can take endless mountain hikes from Corte.

Lavezzi Islands:

Desert of Agriates:

In the north of Corsica, the Agriates desert offers an extraordinary landscape. Like everywhere else on the island, the sea and the mountains are present, but here, everything has remained infinitely wild: only one hamlet is located in the Agriates region, everything else is just nature ...

The Agriates, between Balagne and Cap Corse, are an incredible piece of raw land, 40 km of magnificent coastline with unspoiled nature. The maquis covers this strange place as far as the eye can see, bristling with rocky escarpments. Sometimes a pond offers an oasis of freshness.

Gulf of Porto:

Porto Vecchio:

After Ajaccio and Bastia, Porto-Vecchio has become the third largest city on the island. Everything works together: Figari airport is only 20 km away, and maritime connections from Porto-Vecchio to Italy or France are regular.

Add to that the surrounding beaches which are among the most beautiful in the world, coupled with a splendid hinterland, the Alta Rocca, and a surprising and lively old town, Porto Vecchio is the safe destination.

Roccapina bay:

You will find Roccapina bay on the road to Bonifacio, 22 km south of Sartène.

The turquoise sea invites you to dive. Not a house nearby, only beautiful nature.

Restonica Valley:

The Restonica Valley was declared a large national site in 1985. The Restonica torrent furrows the valley, forming here and there pleasant natural pools, heated by the sun.
