Corsica is one of the most beautiful islands I have ever been to and it's a joy to photograph, from the aquamarine waters to the snow-capped mountains.

Here's some our favourite images from the Island of Beauty, that we think would tempt anyone to visit, whether for the first time or the hundredth time. Corsica is a land that keeps calling us back, so we hope these images inspire you pay a visit.

1. One of Corsica's most famous beaches can be found in the far south of the island, named Santa Giulia Beach. Boasting soft white sand and clear, very shallow waters, it's perfect for families and sun worshippers. You might be pleased to know that this is just one of a plethora of lovely beaches in the area, from quiet secluded coves to sweeping sandy bays, most with a great range of water-based activities.


2. Bonifacio's old town is wonderful to explore, perched on cliffs with the sparkling sea below.


3. Streams tumble through La Restonica Valley near Corte in the mountainous interior, occasionally collecting in quiet pools where you can bathe.
