Sunsets in Bonifacio

Boasting a rich history and a stunning location towering above the blue of the Mediterranean, Bonifacio provokes an impression of a bygone era that will fascinate couples intrigued by the culture and history of Corsica. For the ultimate romantic moment in Bonifacio, don’t miss out on watching the sunset here, projecting beautiful colours across the fortress town.


Hôtel U Capu Biancu, Bonifacio

Sitting beside the Gulf of Santa Manza and boasting a relaxed and sophisticated atmosphere, Hotel U Capu Biancu is the ideal property for couples and honeymooners.

Calvi Citadel

The Citadel of Calvi is a place of fairy tale and legend, providing a fascinating step back in time on the island of Corsica. Meandering around the citadel and following the ramparts of this 13th century fortress will see you encounter cobbled alleyways, tightly-packed houses and a striking cathedral.

A lovely place to stay for couples near the citadel is Casa Anna.

Scandola Nature Reserve

The island’s incredible nature is not to be forgotten when exploring the most romantic locations in Corsica. From the coast to the mountains, the island boasts a myriad of dramatic and picturesque landscapes; but the Scandola Nature Reserve allows you to combine the two. The reserve is best explored on a boat trip, showcasing its incredible red cliffs jutting out of the clear blue sea.

Stay at the four-star Hotel Capo Rosso, situated in the heart of the reserve's unspoilt beauty, and soak up its truly picturesque setting.

La Balagne villages

The charm and authenticity of the several hilltop La Balagne villages effortlessly emit romance and adventure. The character and tradition of these villages will offer an insight into the ‘real‘ Corsica; and if that doesn’t float your boat, the picturesque settings will. There’s nothing like enjoying an evening meal while absorbing unbeatable views of the coastline.

Casetta Feliceta, St Florent

This charming and rustic bolthole for two is authentically Corsican property and in a fantastic location to do some exploring of Corsica’s north east. 

Outside, a small shaded courtyard offers the perfect place to enjoy a touch of al fresco living, with an added bonus of a Jacuzzi to relax in under the stars.

The real draw for couples here, however, is Casetta Feliceta's close proximity to the shops, restaurants and bars of St Florent.

Cupabia Beach

Corsica's west coast is ideal for couples, with wonderful sunsets wherever you stay.

However, Cupabia Beach is arguably one of the most impressive strips of sand on the island. Located a stone’s throw from Porto Pollo, the beach is defined by its soft white sand and dramatic rocks.

Stay nearby at the 3-star Hôtel Eucalyptus in Porto Pollo, which we've handpicked for couples for its warm welcome and great location, close to the beach and restaurants.

Lavezzi Islands

If your idea of a romantic location is one defined by idyllic beaches and coastal magnificence, look no further than an excursion to the offshore Lavezzi Islands. Encountered off the southern tip of Corsica, these islands are a true gem of the Mediterranean, providing lazy days on the sand and adventures under the water if diving is your kind of thing.
