For the beach lovers
Much of Corsica’s coastline is blessed by truly spectacular beaches, with some reminiscent of the Caribbean. Soft white sand and shallow turquoise water is a theme surrounding the beaches in the south, with Santa Giulia, Palombaggia and Pinarello just a few, picturesque examples. Calvi and L’Ile Rousse in the north are also spots for both popular and secluded beaches, some, such as Calvi, boasting magnificent vistas of the Citadel. Plus, with temperatures still in the mid-late twenties in September, you won’t miss out on that much-needed dose of vitamin D. Find out more about beaches in Corsica here.
