Corsica, a destination for nature lovers

One thing is for sure, natural spaces are not lacking in Corsica. Secret and wild, this island jewel that is often nicknamed "the island of Beauty" will take you to another world. From steep cliffs to hills covered with chestnut and olive trees, Corsica enjoys breathtaking natural landscapes. Take a tour of the marina of Calvi, the Corsican city closest to the continent. Here, in summer, the joy of life is in full swing. If the crowded sandy beaches are not the most pleasant in the middle of the summer, we recommend that you stop at the citadel, built at the end of the 15th century. Imposing and picturesque, this architectural marvel will enchant you with its rocky promontory and ocher walls.

Then go to visit Cap Corse, which is an island in an island. If you are traveling with your children, Cap Corse is the perfect opportunity to organize a family road trip. Located in the North of Bastia, Cap Corse is one of the most beautiful parts of the island of Beauty. Lose yourself in its hills, mountains and valleys. Crossed by a rocky ridge, Cap Corse offers a splendid setting to rest and spend a relaxing holiday away from the worries of everyday life.

Do not miss Bonifacio, one of the most touristic but also the most beautiful cities of the island. Suspended above the water, Bonifacio amazes with its rocky cliffs and its perched village. We advise you to discover these spectacular landscapes during a boat trip, perfect to admire the beauty of the Bonifacio cliffs! During your stopover in Bonifacio, do not miss the beautiful natural reserve of Bouches de Bonifacio. Bouches de Bonifacio is the largest natural reserve in Metropolitan France and covers almost 200,000 acres from Corsica to Sardinia. Here, you will be able to admire unique natural spaces in the world as well as a very rich biodiversity.

For a break, make a stop in Porto-Vecchio, the ancient city of salt, where you will find beautiful beaches where to sunbathe. Porto-Vecchio is also a popular spot for celebrities so keep an eye out!
Make the pleasure last by marveling at the Aiguilles de Bavella. Connecting the Alta Rocca to the East coast of Corsica, the Aiguilles de Bavella are characterized by large rock walls and are lined with pine trees twisted by the wind. You will be stunned by these impressive points of red porphyry carved by erosion. Fascinating and spectacular, Corsican nature is here at its peak.

Finally, a stay in Corsica can not be complete without a stopover in Ajaccio, the first Corsican city. From the citadel of the city, which became the "capital" of the island of Beauty to the Parc de Milelli overlooking the Ajaccio Golf Course including the incredible Palais Fesch, Ajaccio deserves a few hours. Stroll on the fine sand of Ajaccio’s pretty beaches, especially those of Ricanto and the Iles Sanguinaires (literally “the Blood Islands”).
