A beautiful area
The island is sometimes called "L'Ile de beaute" - a title which it richly deserves. Its wonderful beaches and the drama of the mountains behind, its forests, and the aroma of the maquis - this virtually unspoilt island is quite unlike the other crowded Mediterranean resorts.
Corsica offers, quite simply, the best beaches in Europe
These beaches are kept immaculately clean, and they range from totally deserted to Riviera chic. What makes Corsica's coastline so special is the quality and clarity of the water.
For authentic Mediterranean culture
The Corsican art and culture heritage is remarkable and rich. The insularity, the Genoese presence and the continual threats of barbarian pirates have put a lasting mark on the Corsican countryside.
