"I’ve been to Corsica a few times now with my family, one of the main reasons we keep coming back is the beautiful safe beaches. My favourite is Santa Giulia Beach about 15 minutes from Porto Vecchio. Car parking spaces are somewhat limited to the northern side of the beach so better to approach from one of the southern roads leading off the N19."


Natalie Ford, Yield Manager

"I was in the south this year, villa - Casa Di Pruno, and went on a lovely short boat trip around Bonifacio (45 mins) - and then spent the rest of the evening walking around Bonifacio."


Activities which are great for children, from younger to older…

Pony and donkey rides

Available in many different locations on the island, children can take a trek along the beach or through the maquis. 

Tortoise sanctuary

Located just to the north of Ajaccio, Corsica is home to the largest tortoise sanctuary, where you can find over 150 species of tortoise and turtle. 

Water sports

Corsica offers a range of water sports for you to try, such as windsurfing, snorkelling and kayaking. 

Swing through the treetops

with rope swings, monkey bridges and cables through the treetops, the mountains of Corsica will keep older children occupied for hours.
